It Works Out To 18 cents / 14 pence per trick!

Ian Rowland has written a mentalism article in the Magic Circle magazine every month since April 2005. Every article ends with a Quick Trick -- a trick, routine, idea or principle that can be written up in about 300 - 400 words.

Here are 100 of these Quick Tricks. They will be of interest mainly to mentalists, mindreaders and psychic entertainers. Note: This is NOT a book for beginners. The contents assume a working knowledge of basic magic repertoire and terminology, especially in the areas of card magic and mentalism.

It works out to just 18 cents or 14 pence per trick!

The Quick Tricks are easy to read and fun to browse. The vast majority require NO special props or gimmicks, and NO sleight of hand or difficult moves either. A handful may require basic sleight of hand repertoire.

Although these may just be 'Quick Tricks', don't dismiss them! This booklet contains many gems that are worth knowing, and as you browse these ideas and effects you'll be sure to find at least a dozen ideas you'll want to try out at the earliest possibly opportunity.

  1. Very good idea book 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Sep 2015

    If you are looking for a bunch of polished routines, ready to put to work in your performances, this is not the book for you. However, the description makes that pretty clear.

    Many of these items are not suitable for formal presentations and several do use a secret assistant. That is just fair warning.

    What is this book, then? It is a collection of ideas and potential inspiration for anyone who enjoys mental routines. Quite a few ideas are variations on established methods and known tricks. Sometimes a single sentence is enough to get me thinking in a new direction. There are a lot of ideas in here to get anyone thinking differently.

    At least half a dozen items in here could be made up commercially and sell for more than the cost of the e-book. I do intend to spend some time on arts and crafts after reading it. The fact that they are not commercially available means I'll be the only one doing them! Unless someone else buys this...

    Bottom line: It is well worth the money I spent on it.
