"A classic treatise that elevates mentalism to an art! Heres some of what the late Orv Meyer said about this book in his introduction: "Rarely does a true classic appear in any field, be it fiction, music, architecture, drama, or whatever. In the pages that follow, there are ideas and effects from Larry Knecht that sparkle from the genius of his mind, and as a result, emerge to give us a classic in the field of mentalism." The letters and e-mail from people who already own this book agree. Larry Knecht was a mentalist, hypnotist, and magician who performed all around the world. He worked for Americas biggest corporations. His legacy in the field of mentalism is Larry Knecht On Mentalism, a classic book that covers every practical aspect of the art. This is a major work. Among the areas discussed are: Creativity as an Integral Part of the Mental Program, Remaining in Character, Paraphernalia to be Avoided by the Mentalist, Style, The Viewpoint of the Audience, Post-performance Questions, Delivery, Good Speech Habits, Applause, Observation, Stagecraft, Technical Skill, Education for the Mentalist, Stooges, On Being the Master of Ceremonies, Personality, The Mentalists Fee, The Use of Puns, Names, and Humor, Comedy, The Principle of Freshness, Originality and Naturalness, Improving the Act, Consistency, Remaining in Character, Establishing Rapport with the Audience, Pre-Performance Activities, The Power of Suggestion, On Being Not Quite Right, Psychological Association, Planning the Routine, and dozens more!"
