Descriptif original anglais :
Mental Epic is one the most powerful effects in the mentalist’s repertoire. Compiled and edited by Paul Romhany, Mental Epic Compendium, is packed with 360 pages with fifty-four routines and ideas for this classic effect. The Mental Epic Compendium is the definitive work on this classic of magic and mentalism, and is destined to become a classic in mentalism literature!
Hen Fetsch invented the board in 1954, and over the past five decades it has undergone many different variations, however most magicians and mentalists still own an original Hen Fetsch board. This book covers routines for the standard Mental Epic prop and its modern variations, as well as One-Ahead routines that can be performed close-up and impromptu using post-it notes, business cards and index cards – all without the board.

« You only have to look at the list of contributors to know this book is special. I am thrilled to find that they all love this effect as much as I do. I don’t think a book paying so much attention to a single effect has ever been published before. » – Richard Webster
« I found the book to be an insightful and entertaining read that was filled with fun revelations and clever routines. Even if you don’t ultimately perform “Mental Epic,” this book may be worth it just for the themes and presentations and forces…it may just be the final word on the well known mentalism effect. »
