The large, eye catching 'Encyclopedia of Mentalism & Mentalists' is not exactly what it claims to be. Don't order it expecting an alphabetized or up-to-date listing of performers and effects as this volume is merely comprised of two previously released books, Tony Corinda's classic 'Thirteen Steps to Mentalism' and William Rauscher's biographical work 'The Mind Readers - Masters of Deception', two books that any serious performer or collector is likely to already have.
If you are new to mentalism, however, you might find it convenient to have these two essential books together in one volume. - Michael Thornton
