Book Description

The inside secret to how mentalists read which playing card someone is thinking about. A person can even imagine a deck of cards in their mind and the mentalist can name the playing card's name or number.

This is a mind trick that takes practice, but it isn't difficult. Like all real mentalism you may not always be perfect at this, but close enough to be impressive, and usually you will be able to name the exact number or name of the card someone only has in their mind.

From Kenton Knepper, John Mahood and other inside names of mentalism and magic.

A very short read, as the secrets are simple. This does require practice, so you don't want to have to read too much or have too much to remember. This method is short so you can begin to learn and practice it quickly.

With K.E.N.T. you tell the spectator to make it tough on you and think of one of a few cards he himself removes from his own deck. You never see these. You instruct him how to focus upon his thought of card and you NAME HIS CARD to the degree that he freaks out and swears you are the REAL thing. He dares you to tell him what his card is, and that is exactly what you are seen to do.

This friends is a true mindblower. It is POWERFUL stuff. This is as close to real mind reading as you can get. Like real mind reading, you will at very rare times, miss. In an effort of complete disclosure, the effect is you name the entire card. The reality is you name the name or number of the card, not the suit generally. But due to the psychology used, it appears you have named not only the name, but the suit as well. There are expanded version included to be even more exacting.

You should also know that this is based upon English and American English as well as American playing cards, so this may make a difference to you. If you and the people you perform for will speak in English generally, then this is great for you. If not, this may not be perfect for you. You would surely have to make a fair amount of adjustments to be able to use the basic idea in other languages.

This has become a classic secret of mentalism and mind reading illusion. Learn it, try it out a few times, and impress everyone with your "powers" of mentalism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius! 8 Dec. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is exactly the kind of effect I have been looking to purchase for ages. Most of what you will find when buying Mentalism without paying very expensive sums of money tends to be something you already know or something so long winded to learn....then turns out to be impractical. KENT is a stand alone work of genius that you will use for the rest of your life once you have mastered it. Secrets like this normally retail between 20-30 quid on Magic websites. Be prepared to put in plenty of practice though, that way your results will convince many that you possess a form of real mind reading ability. Brilliant!

Amazing how the use of language itself can be used to create illusions. Loved it! From a marketing and branding perspective, this should be a must read for all MBAs. It's such a short read too. You get the basics quick. If you like this, you've gotta do a google search for 'Wonder Words'. It's on Kenton's website. Knepper lays out the tools of language in very simple terms.
