Calculated Thoughts by Doug Dyment - Book
"Calculated Thoughts" is a stunning 400+ page book that finally unlocks the door guarding what Ken Weber refers to in the foreword as "mentalism's best-kept secret". There are more than 40 complete, audience-tested routines detailed in this massive text including Doug's diabolical DAO system that allows you to perform impossible card magic without needing to remember a single card, as well as his "Quarto," which is beloved by many of the biggest names in mentalism and heralded as one of the best billet tears ever to be published.
These are some of the most beautifully-constructed mentalism routines we've ever seen. From a simple, yet powerful, marking system for ordinary Bicycle Playing Cards to a memory aid with your feet, a drawing duplication, an impromptu star divination, an entire chapter on just ESP cards, and even a unique way to "slice" your thumb and heal the wound, there's something for everyone. The book also contains what we believe to be the best impromptu magic square ever described in print.
Unlike some other performers who publish numerous books or create expensive one-trick manuscripts, Doug Dyment has truly compiled a lifetime of carefully-refined work into one comprehensive resource. This is a refreshing book that is sure to spark creativity in any mentalist or magician.
