Banachek's highly anticipated follow up to his first higly regarded Psychological Subtleties!

This book won book of the year from the Magic Woods.

When Banachek's Psychological Subtleties first came out it took the magic and mentalism world by storm. It contained a treasure chest full of useable psychological subtleties to create a more deceptive feel to effects that people already performed. These bits and pieces appeared for the first time in one volume which went beyond magic and trickery as the techniques used were not 100% fool proof but when they were successful they were absolutely baffling. With Psychological Subtleties 2 Banachek along with a host of many great mentalists and magicians gives us new full feldged routines, many of which are completely based on psychological subtleties. You will also find new subtleties to add to your repertoire and create even more astonishment for your audience.

Psychological Subtleties one remains one of the best selling books in the magic and mentalism community and is considered a basic reference source for any complete library on our art. Psychological Subtleties offers ideas, tips and observations of natural human responses that can be inserted into performing situations to make the overall result of an effect much stronger, entertaining and memorable.

Several performers incorporated that knowledge into their acts and built whole routines around those clever ideas. Psychological Subtleties 2 picks up where the first book ends. Whereas Psychological Subtleties was not a book of tricks and routines, this book contains complete routines from professionals who understood the value and impact of those ideas in the first book.

Here you will find routines from: Peter Arcane, Greg Arce, Lance Campbell, Dr. Bill Cushman, Christian David, David De Leon, Paul W. Draper, Gerard, Jonathon Grant, Patrick Kuffs, Andy Leviss, Rick Maue, Mike Merchant, Ravi Johannes Pazhur, Ian Rowland, Leonardo Silverio, and Michael Sibbernsen as well as routines and more subtleties from the mind of Banachek.

Hardbound, 203 pages.

I love this book December 13, 2011
Reviewer: Steve Suss from Magic Cafe  
The second book has more full routines using some of the psychological subtleties. I love the book and have already added 2 effects to my repetoir. That's a lot for me.

Fantastic book December 13, 2011
Reviewer: MentalGuy from Magic Cafe  
This is a fantastic book that should be added to the serious mentalist's collection.

Indeed, the many "complete routines from professionals" will blow you away, intrigue you, and hopefully get you thinking about your own presentations. The subtle convincers and observations that Banachek includes are, in themselves, worth more than the price of the book.

I give this book my highest recommendation, and I am eagerly awaiting Psychological Subtleties 3.
