Collected Mental Mysteries by Lester Watts & B. W. McCarronCollected Mental Mysteries
by Lester Watts & B. W. McCarron

Here's a rare book of 16 mental effects, brought back to life for a new generation of performers and audiences.

The tests in this unusual book run from mediumistic effects where the spirits do the work, to design duplication tests to billet reading to two-person mental mysteries.

Experienced psychic entertainers will find novelty in the methods used to perform the various effects. They will definitely capture your attention and get you thinking.

Each of the effects is examined in detail with an "afterthoughts" section that provides alternate performance ideas, substitute methods and new material suggestions.
