Available from http://www.world-of-magic.co.ukFascinating -John Bannon21 killer effects exploring three new techniques by award-winning writer director and magician Chris Philpott. Intimate Mysteries explores magic done not just in the spectators hands and minds but with their lives. These effects are fun fascinating and often moving to experience while being entertaining and dramatic to witness - some have nearly as many plot twists and revealed secrets as a Dan Brown novelIncludes routines based on these principles by John Bannon Steve Valentine Raj Madhok and others.EffectsThe Roller CoasterYou guide the spectator through a visualization that uncovers aspects of their personality - but then the twist theyve also been unknowingly choosing a card the whole time - and you have correctly predicted every choice they madeMy fave routine is The Roller Coaster. First of all its a great way to get into a card trick without stating its a card trick. The routine is so brilliantly structured as to at first intrigue psychologically unsettle and then blow away your audience. An extra bonus is that it will hopefully create a welcome respite from bloody invisible deck routines. Worth the price of the book. - Steve Valentine Two-time Magic Castle Close-Up Magician of the YearThe Open DoorA simple story leads to a profound revelation about your spectator.I would love to include The Open Door in Scripting Magic 2. What a great example of the power of scripting. The kind of experience that it creates is tremendously powerful.- Pete McCabeFAAA (Force Anything Anytime Anywhere)An incredibly powerful new technique with virtually unlimited possibilities One spectator secretly thinks of anything and another spectator reveals what it is No pre-show no confederates no instant-stooges - can be done impromptu for just two people and they will both be amazed.This is where magic stops being just tricks and starts freaking people out-Den Shewman For
