Here’s what you get in this book: really smart ideas from two smart mentalists. Richard Mark is a creative genius, and Marc Salem has been, for decades, one of the world’s most successful mentalists. Together they give us powerful new routines, but even better, from my perspective, are the many tips and insights into how to perform stunning mental routines. It’s a blockbuster package! – Ken Weber – Maximum Entertainment

Marc Salem and Richard Mark have put together a wonderful collection of, well, ‘tools and strategies’ for the working mentalist. The sections on Nail Writing and The Ostin Clip, are , in my opinion, worth the price of the collection. There are also many other well thought out chapters on a variety of tools and routines throughout the book that you can easily add to your repertoire. Truly something for everyone. – Seth Kramer – Corporate Magician/Mentalist

Several words come to mind after reading this book: strong, practical, and commercial. The authors have given the mentalist community a wonderful gift. Study their routines, tips, and ideas.

The “Dyad of Mentalism” (as I refer to them by) released undoubtedly could be their most impressive work to date with “Secrets Tools & Strategies,” This Dyad includes two of the most highly respected individuals in the art, Marc Salem and Richard Marks . It’s completely different than anything they have previously published. Both Marc and Richard have performed for years yet it is their collaborative efforts that yield the most gold. Richard Mark spending years as a psychiatrist has a distinct advantage regards to how the human mind processes data.
Secrets Tools& Strategies is a unique yet brilliant project. This is not a booklet it’s a 172 page project that features so much practical working knowledge contained within. Technical, conceptual, reference oriented, apparatus and springboard content are included. My mind was frequently racing with possible ways to achieve the objectives in the book, and I found it too as equally educational as it as inspirational.
I discovered a several methods or tools that I didn’t know existed. I’m not expert at mentalism but I think its fair to say I have read and seen hundreds of books on subject. This is a book you will pull off the shelf many times for reference not just a one time read. I know it sounds cliché but that doesn’t mean it’s not true – every mentalist should have this book in their library.
