Peek into the Mind of a Creative Master

the Dave Lederman Award for Creativity in Mentalism, an
award that recognizes the many contributions Gene has given
the mentalism community over the years. Nielsen fans and
newcomers alike will be
happy to know that Gene's prolific creativity shows no signs
of slowing down, and that he's been hard at work on this
THE LEGACY NOTEBOOK, you will find page after page
of Gene's thinking, a potpourri of mentalism that covers
a wide range -- from seance phenomena to parapsychological
anomolies . . . intimate close-up demonstrations to theatrical
stage presentations -- all of it carrying the classic Nielsen
touch. A hallmark of Gene's approach to mentalism is his
devious simplicity of execution, and after reading this
book, you will find yourself wondering, "Why would
you do it any other way?"

mentioned above, THE LEGACY NOTEBOOK features a design
duplication presentation that is as easy to perform as it
is baffling. Based on a classic Annemann effect, Gene shares
his touches that not only bring it up-to-date, but to the
next level as well. And here's the really cool part . .
an added bonus, Gene has included the actual set of designs
he uses for this presentation -- all you need to do is print
them out and you're ready to perform this classic of mentalism.
in with the many practical mentalism routines are several
essays that explain exactly how Gene feels about certain
aspects of the arcane arts. You may or may not agree with
his point of view on everything, but it's a good bet that
some of your preconceptions on "conventional wisdom"
may be challenged . . . which is a good thing!
is especially true when it comes to the use of playing cards
in mentalism. Gene has long been one of the few voices supporting
the careful incorporation of playing cards into professional
performances, feeling that it's not what you do, but how
you do it. With this in mind, Gene includes some very powerful
card routines and the script he uses when introducing some
of his own presentations.
there's a whole lot more to be found in THE LEGACY NOTEBOOK
. . .
days before we were ready to release THE LEGACY NOTEBOOK,
Gene emailed us and said, "I've got some more stuff
I've been working on . . . should we include that in THE
LEGACY NOTEBOOK?" After looking it over, I realized
what a perfect addition Gene's FORCE BAG FROLICS
would make, and quickly got to work incorporating it into
THE LEGACY NOTEBOOK.
you might guess from the title, FORCE BAG FROLICS
focuses on presentations using a force bag ("No
. . . really?!?"). While you could use just about
any force bag for the eight presentations included in this
manuscript, Gene gladly goes the extra mile and shows you
how to make the Classic Nelson Force Bag (plus a clever
variation) for a cost that is literally pennies.
are the eight routines Gene has put together for FORCE
BAG FROLICS . . .
The Chancellor Effect
The Sorcerer's Stone
Seven Stone Sutra
The Book Of Five Rings
Technicolor Prediction Revisited
Numerichrome: The Spectator As Mindreader
some serious food for thought here, to be sure . . . and
very possibly a signature presentation for the right person.
