aul’s highly thought of small print run hardcover book of 2012 now available as an ebook. 154 large pages, packed with information on the subject matter. Mainly focusing on playing cards but there are also chapters on ESP cards, number cards, alphabet cards, design decks etc.

Yes, some effects are fully described but the book is primarily a great reference source with discussion and recommendations of effects within the various categories of mentalism with cards.

Here are a few comments on the book…

“I’d be astonished if you didn’t unearth some really terrific effects here that have simply escaped your notice! This book is a true labour of love for our art, and unlikely to be challenged as the singular best reference source for its topic. Consequently, I highly recommend it to all serious mentalists.” – Doug Dyment“Any mentalist who is in need for research on the topic of this book – for one reason or another – should definitively get “Mentalism With Cards”. The references in there will ease your work as a matter of fact. A great work, Paul. Thank you for making this accessible to the mentalism community.” – Thomas – Paralabs
