of the best teachers in magic and this is going to be a must have for

Charles Gauci reveals his most
cherished secrets that have enabled him to make a very good living from
entertaining for over 50 years. He has created some of the
most practical, commercial magical effects which have sold all over the
world and are used by top professionals everywhere.
There are a total of thirteen stage effects which he performs
in his "Magic of the Mind"
and "Mysteries of the Mind"
shows. There are no pipe dreams here but killer routines that are
reputation makers. There is enough material to perform two forty-five
minute shows ranging from a small intimate audience up to one thousand
Both of his shows fit into a carry-on case enabling him to
travel everywhere without worrying about lost luggage.
Charles practices what he preaches. With the exception of his
memorized deck system, you will be able to
perform all of the effects within minutes of reading the instructions.
His creations rely on clever subtleties rather
than sleight of hand. This enables him to concentrate on presentation.
There's no padding in this book. The 222 pages are packed with
original effects, some of which have never been published before. There are also links to private
YouTube video clips of various performances. It is a huge
advantage to be able to see how certain effects are performed in front
of a lay audience.
In total there are thirty-six effects ranging from stage,
close-up, and roving.
- C.G. Switch Box. This simple
yet familiar to all cardboard gift box is cleverly gimmicked to enable
you to switch cards or envelopes. Perfect for a Q & A routine.
- Marked Deck System. Can you
imagine the killer effects you can create with a deck of marked cards
that you can read two meters away? Couple this with a memorized deck
system and you have one of the most powerful tools any mentalist can
- At the Races is another very
commercial effect suitable for corporate performances. Great to use at
trade shows to draw a crowd to your stand.
- Rain Man. Perform this
incredibly easy memory routine to one person or a thousand. This is a
reputation maker and you will perform it within minutes with no
complicated memory required.
- Perfect Prediction is exactly
that. A diabolical routine that kills!

I can look you straight in the eye and say that for any
professional/semi professional mentalist this book is a must have in
one's library. It has been priced to keep it out of the hands of the
curious. Charles Gauci is recognized by his peers as one of the most
creative minds in magic.
Additional Details and Biography of

quickly realized that to succeed in this tough entertainment business
his act had to be different. Consequently, he began to create
new and original routines.
- A Lifetime
of Magic is a treasure trove of thirty-six of his
favourite effects from his two professional shows, "Magic of the Mind"
and "Mysteries of the Mind." They include instructions of how to build
seven of his top selling commercial effects thus saving you hundreds of
- This book is aimed at the professional/semi professional
entertainers. The material is well tried and tested over thousands of
performances. You also have access to performance video clips on
privateYouTube. It is often said that if you get one item out of a
book, then the
investment has been worthwhile.
- We think that gems such as the C.G.Switch Box, Card Marking
System, and his various reputation makers Memory Routines alone are
worth the price of the book. Included is his new methodology for
performing his best selling "Eye to Eye"
Gauci is one of those rare breeds
who can earn a living selling his creations. The reason he excels is
due to the fact he is also a performer, he has traveled with legends;
and understands that "real magic" must be simple, direct and most of
all entertaining. His creations are all of these things, but most
importantly they are practical. I am pleasantly shocked
and surprised that Charles has taken his
creations and placed them into a book as his thinking is just that
advanced. The value you are sure to receive is hard to put a price
upon, in fact I cannot fathom that anyone has done so. The price
certainly will not do the book justice as the information will surely
be invaluable to the working performer and each effect certainly could
be sold and make more than the price tag of this book if sold
may be redundant, but I think Charles Gauci is one of the most
creative, entertaining and professional psychic entertainers in the
world. His output of killer mental effects constitute some of the most
powerful material any mentalist could perform. Most important of all he
is a true gentleman and I am proud to call him my friend."
