One of the big hits at MINDvention 2012. . . .
Deep Mental Mysteries is Lawrence Hass's third book for mystery performers, and it is the first one to focus on mentalism. In it, he shares:
—Three powerful mentalism routines from his professional repertoire: "Test Conditions Mind Reading, 2.0," "The Intuition Test," and "ESP-ology" (created with Jeff McBride).
—An essay on Deep Method, a signature concept that continues to inspire magicians and mentalists in their efforts to better hide their technical methods.
—An essay on the essential difference between magic and mentalism, and how knowing this difference can better improve our performances of each.
