Availability: Instant delivery



Atlas Brookings got a great response from the magic community when he shard his amzing secrets for The Real Thing. It was first published in Pyscrets publication 'Liber Mentis' and the feedback was amazing. The new techniques Atlas employed were both refreshing and inspiring, if you utilise these techniques correctly you will not only have an accurate and astonishing direct mind read magic trick but you will also be able to demonstrate a great lie detection routine.

The routine was well hidden in print for many years, only being available within the Psycrets publication, however Atals has decided that due to the fantastic response he would re work the print, add some more detail and extended writings of over 22 pages of additional content! The brand new content teaches a few things, notably a book test for mind reading, the likes of which you will have never seen before and also ANOTHER method of performing a clean and direct mind reading magic trick that really feels like The Real Thing!

There has never been a book test like this before, listen to this and tell me it is not insanely impressive! You ask a spectator to choose a word from a book, they are to remember this and then close the book and place it aside. They are to take the word they memorised from the book and change it to another word, not another word from the book but ANY WORD THEY CAN THINK OF, you the performer then correctly reveal their new word, WITH ABSOLUTELY NO FISHING!!!

Now, this never before released working, this updated version of 'The Real Thing' teaches you how to do this and much more!

The Real Thing is now being openly released to the masses of our community and we at the Merchant of Magic can forsee a LOT of new mentalists roaming around performing amazing feats of mind reading and mentalism because you do not need a huge array of props to perform these miracles, all you need is some paper and a pen. This really is The Real Thing!

For example:

On five (or more) different pieces of paper (business cards work well) you write a unique sentence, folding each card as you finish.

The participant takes all five pieces of paper, and while you turn around (or leave the room), opens one and reads it.

Once this is done, the Mentalist has a short chat with the spectator, and then tells them the sentence they were thinking of. The papers stay in the participant's possession the entire time.

No peeking, no confederates, no dirty work - Just REAL psychological Mentalism.

What do all the other Professional Mindreaders think?

"At last a routine where you really are doing what you claim! This is a fantastic concept that Atlas has expanded greatly. It has the feeling of real mentalism because it IS real mentalism."
- Marc Paul, Entertainer and author of "The Fleetwood Notes"

"Page seven of your manuscript is worth whatever you end up charging for it."
- Dave Arch, Author of 'Mind Game'

"I really enjoyed 'The Real Thing'...The core of the effect uses pure psychology which is just the ticket. The way in which this has been used to create a nice little lie-detector routine is very clever indeed."
- Derek Heron, Corporate Entertainer

"Rather than a physical peek, your method is kinda like a mental peek!"
- Seamus Maguire

"I must say I really enjoyed reading 'The Real Thing'. If nothing else, it has gotten me thinking and that's when I know I'm taken by an idea."
- Nique Tan

"Thank you for making my copy of 'Naked Mentalism' relevant again!"
- Aaron Alexander, Author of The Pygmalion Effects

"Atlas has open up a world of possibilities here. Using this knowledge you can play mind detective and catch your criminal every time. Very sneaky stuff. Excellent."
- Greg Arce, Author of Deep Thought, Four Thought, and Lost in Thought

"When I first released Naked Mentalism back in 2007, I hoped that others would run with it and create simple, subtle, yet powerful effects that really do feel real. With 'The Real Thing', Atlas has certainly done that. It's a tour de force; intelligent, clean and yet very reliable. Lovely work."
- Jon Thompson, Author of the 'Naked Mentalism' Series

And all of the above feedback was given BEFORE the additions to the text!

Here is a review of "The Real Thing" featured in April's Vanish Magazine:

"Is it really possible to read minds? After reading this e-book I believe I can, at least that's how I felt. Inspired by Jon Thomspons' Naked Mentalism, Atlas has taken the method to another level. I have been doing this and it really works, so it's not some pipe dream. It is very easy to understand and this book is well written so you don't have to be afraid of psychological thinking. I couldn't wait to try it out on friends after reading and it blew them away. The great thing is once you have learnt this you'll have some incredibly powerful impromptu mentalism that will fool people badly.

The method can also be applied to a book test. There is a gimmick book involved which is described how to make, or you can order one online from the author. I would probably just order one because it's not expensive and save yourself a lot of time and trouble. I would say it's easily one of the strongest book tests I've seen in some time.

For close-up performances there is a great routine with business cards using the method. You can perform this on one person or several. There are a lot of variations explained in this e-book. It's the method that really impressed me because I hadn't come across it before, and my mind was alive with ideas on how to apply to other effects.

This is some of the best psychological thinking I've read, because it's not hard to understand and even easier to put in to practice. If you could really read minds this might be the way to do it."
- Paul Romhany, Vanish Magazine

The book is 41 pages long and offers a means of entering the human mind unlike anything you've ever seen before! It gives you the chance to perform the REAL thing!
