Most of the material is suited to stage or parlour. The "bending spoons" routine is crap... funny, perhaps, but you're not showing anything. Over-inflated. A couple of interesting routines with R&S but none is particularly mysterious. However, it has a couple of nice routines (Elephant in Matchbox) and some good tip. The best part is the detail used to explain every effect and various technical tips here and there. While a well-read mentalist will not find much new stuff, the material is still worth study.
