How to become a Mentalist

My top recommendations.


I’d like to share a list of books that have helped a lot in this never-ending process of learning. During this search for knowledge I’ve encountered a lot of pseudo-science and books that repeat a lot of previously published information. For this reason, in this list I’m including books that are practical and have updated information. Some can be read in just one weekend, others require a lot of practice and note taking for many weeks. You’ll find lots of reviews and descriptions so that you can decide which ones are best for you. The memory ones are fun and have useful methods. Others have information which we can see more as theories, but are useful in life and work. The body language ones teach many techniques and one must remember that these ideas are not 100% surefire, but will give you lots to analyze in order to comprehend the human mind and its behavior better. I sincerely hope you enjoy them.
