Do You Want to Become a Mentalist?
Do you want to become a mentalist? It is a choice not for everyone because it does require hard work. It requires the kind of effort that is needed to become a talented magician. Sure, you can get “self working” tricks and put on a show, but this does not a magician make or for that matter, mentalist.
Become an Actor?
A mentalist is a magician playing the role of a mentalist, and a magician is an actor playing a role of a magician. So for some a good place to start their studying to become a mentalist is by exploring the world of magic. Some of the best mentalists would make fine actors.
A Student of Mentalism?
Once you’ve made the decision to become a mentalist you are ready to start to practice. Two books that we’ve mentioned before are “13 Steps to Mentalism” and “Practical Mental Magic.” These two books are considered by some to be the most important ones for a mentalist. This is probably because they don’t just tell you how the “mentalism tricks” are done but encourage performance nuance on the part of the mentalist student.
