Literally two books in one! On one side of this 180-page hardcover is a reprint of H.J. Burlingame's 1907 paperback release How to Read People's Minds which includes some history on muscle reading and how it works along with a fascinating section on training your dog to read minds!
Then give the book a flip end over end and you have Banachek's Psychophysiological Thought Reading. This section not only covers more details on the history of muscle reading, but also teaches updated effects using muscle reading as it is performed today by performers such as Kreskin, Derren Brown, and of course, Banachek himself, among others. These effects are used onstage and close-up in routined and impromptu performances.
Laminated hardcover, 180 6" x 9" pages with new illustrations by Earle Oakes
"Psychophysiological Thought Reading is a must-have for anyone interested in learning contact-mind reading, and when combined with Burlingame, also a must-have for anyone interested in mentalism history. It is the most complete treatment of ideomotor effects I have seen written for mentalists."
