The Professional Mentalist’s Survival Manual by Richard Osterlind – Book
The final volume in the acclaimed Field Manual series is here!
We definitely intended The Professional Mentalist’s Intelligence Manual to be the last in the series, but since that book came out in 2018, Richard has been making notes and coming up with new ideas. Jim Sisti suggested the title of The Professional Mentalist’s Survival Manual because of the real-world subjects and issues explored in these pages.
The contents are hard hitting, drawing on Richard’s many experiences over the last 55 years on a variety of subjects that are sometimes not so pretty. Richard has held nothing back, including stories that he never intended to talk about, but which contain vitally important lessons. If you are a professional performer, we guarantee you will be able to not only commiserate but benefit from Richard’s suggestions.
Some of the topics include:
- How much of what you do is real?
- Foreign countries
- Inventions and creation
- Rumors and your reputation
- The press
- Conditions can change
- Beware of special requests
- Types of shows
- And so many more!
