Any magic trick involves a bit of acting, a touch of drama, a gift of being able to give speeches and loads and loads of attitude. However, the most important thing in a magic trick is the illusion itself and your success depends primarily on how unique and stunning it is. Imagine, after performing some magic tricks, learnt from a website which gives away free information, you are told by one of your spectators that he/she knows exactly how you performed them! So, behind every successful magician, there is a series of unique and outstanding magic tricks the secret of which are never revealed anywhere.

Ryan Clark presents his e-book Master Mentalism with a claim that this book reveals the best-kept secrets of the magician fraternity. What is even better is that the tutorials are written in such a lucid language that they can be read and understood even by a 10-year-old kid. While it is difficult to pull up a really astounding magic trick that will mesmerize your friends, the step-by-step instructions given in Master Mentalism make it really easy for you.

Both professional magician and amateur tricksters alike will absolutely love this book which contains the secrets behind famous magic tricks performed by David Copperfield, David Blaine, Criss Angel and Derran Brown. Not only Mentalism, you will learn street magic, spoon bending, hypnosis, levitation, card tricks and many other illusions ranging from the extremely easy to slightly difficult level.

Master Mentalism also comes with 3 bonus books, which are on magic tricks, card magic and David Blain street magic.

However, because of the special offer going on at present the 3 books will be given absolutely free of cost along with the main e-book. It is amazing to get the whole package at such a low rate, considering the fact that many of the magic tricks mentioned here cannot be found anywhere else.

Street Magic Masters

Street magic is also known as "street performance" or "guerrilla magic." Street magic first appeared as a form of busking (or performing for money from passersby). It included card tricks, eating fire, fortune telling, clowning, juggling, etc. Today, street magic is mainly used for the film industry. The reactions of people are taped, and they are later on edited and distributed to the wide public via DVDs or regular television broadcasting.

In street magic, an illusionist must not only find an audience, but he or she must also keep them interested and awed of his performance. It is the magician's job to crash the rational thinking of the crowd. At the end of his or her performance the audience must start doubting physics and begin thinking something to the extent of "I know levitation isn't possible, but could it be possible?" This is harder to accomplish when performing in a large theater where people are a certain distance away. But when you are standing right next to your audience, on the street, within a touching distance, people start believing that maybe whatever you do is indeed possible.

Who are the street magic masters?

Jeff Sheridan - The most amazing thing about Sheridan is the way he can manipulate cards. His silent approach to performing is even more astonishing because usually magicians like to talk in order to distract their audience. Jeff Sheridan is the teacher of two great magicians - David Blaine and David Copperfield. He has been an inspiration to many other performers with the street magic he practiced in New York's Central Park. Jeff's ideas have been used by two famous companies that manufacture magical toys and accessories.

David Blaine - Blaine is not only a magician, but he is also an endurance artist. Some of the stunts he pulled in the past few years have put his life in danger. One such example is his fast over the Thames River. He was put in a see through plastic box where he didn't eat anything for 44 days. During his stay in the box, he lost 54 pounds and his body mass dropped to 21.6% (from almost 30%). David Blaine has made street magic very popular thanks to his TV show "Street Magic." He performed tricks like levitation, card through window, card in a bottle, and voodoo ash. Like every other good magician, David's main goal is to entertain by deceiving. Most of his tricks involve a lot of practice and the help of a third party (other people who are in on the trick).

Cyril Takayama - Takayama is a very popular street magician in Japan. Some of his most famous tricks include the hamburger in the menu and the card through the window. One of his spectacular performances was his bungee jump into a pool with a sword in hand. There was a deck of cards floating in the pool, including the card chosen by his co host. He was then able to spear that chosen card with the sword.

The world of street magic is very exciting because it makes the experience more believable. However, it does require a lot of work and practice, and there is always something that can go wrong when performing in front of a crowd. In order to impress the crowd street magicians may sometimes need a "lovely assistant" that stays in the shadows and goes unnoticed. At times this assistant may act like he or she is part of the crowd. The more impressive a magic trick is, the more likely a magician will need additional assistance from either a person or a specially created device.

How to Find Magic Trick Equipment

There are a few magic tricks you can perform with items you or your audience may have such as money, glasses or a box of matches. However, as your repertoire becomes more complex you will need some props or other equipment for your performance.

Magic props come in all shapes and sizes. You can build your routine around simple things like a deck of cards, small animals or balloons. You can find a few common items in the grocery such as knives, paper or sugar cubes. But eventually you'll want to search out and find a good magic shop.

Not only will you be able to get all the props and equipment you need for your performance, the magic shop is great resource for new ideas and even places to perform.

If you require custom equipment you can go also about making it yourself. In centuries past, most magicians had to build their own props and equipment. Some tricks don't require anything more than some plywood and a few tools. Also, if your props are home made you can be sure that no one else will have a trick exactly like yours.

The first piece you may want to create is your magician's table. You can custom build it with hidden compartments to assist you with tricks where objects need to disappear.

Another important, although sometimes overlooked, piece of magician's equipment is the outfit. What the magician wears can be a critical part of the performance and set the tone for the audience. Many magicians also like to have customized outfits with hidden pockets or panels to assist with tricks. Unless you have a talent for sewing you may want to consult with a local tailor to get your outfit created.

Perhaps the most common prop in magic is the deck of cards. This may seem simple but there are many different types. There are different colors, sizes, marked cards, double faced and double backed cards just to name a few. Most magic stores will have a type of deck to accommodate any tricks you might be working on but some magicians have their cards customized as well. If you do go with customized cards remember that you want them to look as much like an "ordinary" deck of cards as possible. You want the audience to believe that the magic is coming from you, not the props.

If your audience consists of a large group of children then the use of animals in your tricks is a must. Usually a white rabbit or white doves work the best. Doves are the easiest to train and rabbits don't make noise or bite. Some magic stores will carry them but you can also get them at a local pet store.

If your trick calls for you to cover something with a handkerchief, you should opt for silk rather than a cotton handkerchief. Silk adds a touch of class and they are usually larger and come in a large variety of colors.

Complex magic tricks will almost always require some equipment or props so be prepared to go shopping or head out to the garage to make them yourself. Just remember that you make the magic happen, not the props. Also remember that fancy props are no substitute for honing your skills through practice and repetition. Master your craft and the right equipment will just add the finishing touch to your professional level performance.

Looking for a way to attract some attention at the bar while plying your sleight of hand? Some great bar magic tricks can draw a crowd and make you the life of the party. Luckily there are quite a few that are easy to learn and can be put into practice rather quickly. You won't need any equipment that you can't find in your local tavern.

The first one you may have seen a variation of back in science class in school. It's called the sucking glass trick. It gets that name because you are trying to get the beer into the glass without pouring it in. You'll need a coin, an ashtray, an empty pint glass, a box of matches and some beer.

After you have gathered the necessary props, place the ashtray on the bar and pour a small amount of beer into it. Place the coin in the middle of the beer. Place a lit match horizontally on the coin. Now grab the pint glass and place it over the match and the coin. Make sure the edges are flat in the beer. Within a few seconds, the match will exhaust the oxygen in the glass creating a suction pulling the beer into the glass. Voila!

The next trick is even simpler to learn than the first. It's called push the glass. You'll need a shot glass, a beer mug and a straw. Take the shot glass and place it on the bar next to the beer mug. Assure your onlookers that you can push the shot glass through the handle of the beer mug without touching either glass. Now take the straw and put it through the handle of the mug and push the shot glass with it. You just pushed the glass through the handle of the mug!

For your next great bar magic trick, called the olive bridge, you'll need an olive, three whiskey glasses, a brandy glass and a straw. When this trick is performed correctly, you'll make the olive leap over a hurdle and into a third glass.

Put the olive on the bar and place two of the whiskey glasses upside down about six inches apart and six inches from the olive. Set the straw on top of the glasses to form a hurdle. Take the third glass and place it right side up six inches on the other side of the hurdle.

Now take the brandy glass and turn it upside down over the olive. Hold the base of the glass and begin twirling it around the olive. As you continue to twirl you will create a centrifugal force causing the olive to spin around the inside of the glass. Keep twirling as you lift the glass. Move the glass over the hurdle and over the third glass. When you are over the third glass stop twirling the olive in the brandy glass and it will fall into the whiskey glass.

While these tricks are easy to learn you should still give yourself some practice time to get everything right before trying them out in front of the bar crowd. After all you're shooting for the admiration of the crowd, not embarrassment. Master them and you can have a lot of fun and your own crowd of onlookers at the bar not to mention it's a great way to meet people and start conversations.
