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!

Give the book a flip over 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 including Derren Brown, and Banachek himself. These effects are used onstage and close-up in routined and impromptu performances.

"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." -Christopher Carter

About Author:

Described as the "Cream of the Crop" when it comes to entertainers, Banachek (born 1960 as Steven Shaw) is the world's leading Mentalist. His talents are so incredible that he is the only mentalist ever to fool scientists into believing he possessed 'Psychic powers' but to later reveal he was fooling them. Performers around the world such as the colourful Penn & Teller, "The Amazing" James Randi and television's unique street magician David Blaine seek his performing expertise. Companies and theatres seek him for his outstanding performing abilities.

Banachek has written books on mentalism, such as Psychological Subtleties, and invented various magic and mentalism effects, including the Penn And Teller bullet catch and the original "buried alive."

Biography

Banachek Born in England and raised in South Africa and Australia, Banachek has been performing since his arrival in the United States in 1976.

Banachek is often sought out by various top entertainers and magic TV shows around the world as a consultant. The entertainers include Penn And Teller, David Blaine, Lance Burton, James Randi and Criss Angel. He has been responsible for putting more magic and mentalism on American television than any other magic consultant in the world.

Banachek is renowned for fooling scientists at Washington University into believing that his supposed psychic abilities were genuine during the Project Alpha hoax in the early 1980s. He also took part in an investigation with Randi exploring Peter Popoff, which ultimately exposed Popoff's false claims.

He has appeared on several television programs including CNN Live, Mindfreak and Unscrewed with Martin Sargent.

In 2008 he toured as part of a stage show called Hoodwinked with Bob Arno, Todd Robbins and Richard Turner.

On July 12, 2009 he conducted a preliminary test of Connie Sonne's dowsing ability for the James Randi Educational Foundation's Million Dollar Challenge that was witnessed by hundreds in person and hundreds more via live webcast.
