Grade 6-9–Mandelberg offers several card tricks for which the performer appears to have psychic powers. He debunks the idea of reading someone else's mind from the beginning and sets forth to prove that these stunts involve precise planning and execution along with a healthy dose of stage presence. The tricks are outlined thoroughly from setup to completion and include suggested banter and distraction techniques. The mechanics of each one are workable for patient learners and the performance suggestions are doable. Tricks are rated as to difficulty level, impact on the audience, type of technique(s) used, and amount of preparation necessary. While probably more for seasoned performers than rank beginners, this book will send readers off in search of the nearest deck of cards to try their hand at this brand of magic.–Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA
