Foreword by Marc Paul
"I met Luca for the first time this year (2015) BUT I have known of his excellent reputation, particularly in the cruise industry, for many years. When we met it felt like I had known him for years. Even though I'm English and he's Italian we talk the same language; that language is mentalism. BUT it goes deeper than that, many magicians learn the language but they never learn to speak it fluently like a native. They are certainly passable at being understood by their audiences but the deep understanding that comes from experience is missing. Mentalism is an immersive subject. If you really want to succeed you have to immerse yourself completely and for a long time. Luca speaks the same language as me because we have both spent most of our lives working in the real world for real people. This means that Luca has developed an extremely deep understanding of his art. In other words he's a very experienced professional and when a very experienced PRO writes about what they have learnt I always pay attention, and you should too.
"You are about to read a 'blue print' of how to succeed as a professional mentalist. You'll be taught a well-structured 30 minute act, with multiple moments of amazement, that fits into a small box. It can play for 10 to 1000 people. You can make a living with this act alone, but Luca doesn't stop there. He provides you with ALL of his experience about how to create the maximum impact with your mentalism, how to give it meaning, how to manage an audience, how to promote yourself etc. he holds nothing back and gives you the truth.
"These are the real secrets and are worth so much more than the latest method to a trick. The title of "Total Mentalism" is well chosen as you are literally getting EVERYTHING. Luca's experience shines throughout this book. Read it, absorb it and reflect upon it, but remember at some point you need to act upon it so that YOU can start adding to and developing your own experience. I'm reminded of a Latin quote that sums up my thoughts on all of this... 'Ars Longa, Vita Brevis'. Art is long, life is short.
"I had a great time with Luca and learned from his experience... now it's your turn. Enjoy."
