Unreal by Bruce Bernstein
Product detailed description
Bruce Bernstein is a fascinating person. He restores Japanese swords, hand-carves boomerangs, and composes music. But beyond that, he is a top-class mentalist and the author of countless effects that amateur and professional magicians around the world now perform.
The Unreal book was first published in 2012. It immediately became a bestseller and quickly sold out. Unreal is one of the most praised books on mentalism. Thanks to Squash Publishing, it is now available again.
