Max Maven traveled from Hollywood to Lake Tahoe with nothing but a nice suit. He made a quick stop at a supermarket and spent less than ten minutes and ten dollars. After less than half an hour of preparation, he went on stage and performed a 50-minute mentalism show. The show featured renowned performers such as Eugene Burger, Brandon Combs, Gene Matsuura, Stephen Minch, Jan Rose, and Michael Weber. It is important to note that this show did not rely on pre-show work, stooges, clipboards, nailwriters, playing cards, ESP cards, billets, wallets, gaffs, gimmicks, special materials, muscle reading, hypnotism, threads, mirrors, electronics, rough & smooth, or the Gilbreath Principle. In fact, it was a showcase of pure mentalism and exceptional entertainment.

Let's be clear. This is not a cluster of "substitute" stuff to make up for having lost your props. It is a full-length show of top-notch real world material, much of it revealed for the very first time. The complete work, including variations and options, plus discussion of performance structure, scripting segues, audience management, blocking, timing-everything thoroughly explained with an unprecedented degree of detail.
Included is the rare "Para-Sight" routine, out of print for over 25 years; copies of the original limited-release manuscript have sold for as much as $400. And that's something!
