The thing is with people like Derren, although they might make out as if they're using psychology how much of that is really just play acting with the methods being nothing that you couldn't find in 13 Steps? I've seen Derren take rountines straight out of Corinda and even the good old, coin to ball of wool and have people convinced that he was reading their body language.

When I perform I use the premise that everything I'm doing is based around female intuition. Of course it's really all switches and forces but I don't tell my audience that and Derren, Katherine and co are no different.

Of course there are psychological forces but they're either very unreliable or very difficult to pull off. If you really want to go down this route then Jon Thompson's Naked Mentalism might be worth looking at and Bob Cassidy and Kenton Knepper have also written some very good material around the subject. But it's really not easy to pull off, I'd honestly advise studying and really learning what's in Annemann and Corinda before you touch any of the more advanced stuff. Take the effects in there and work on a psychological presentation because to be honest, that's exactly what most well known mentalists are doing.

I guess you're talking about Banachek's psi series DVDs? If so then yes, they're all very good and well worth getting.

Before Building Blocks was 7 Deceptions which I think is ideal sticking to your interest style. Corinda is excellent but very old school with little coverage of what you may directly refer to as suggestion. (I'm sure purists will tell me that's because I haven't studied it enough)

For Andruzzi or even my personally much loved A Darker Dai are very suggestion based for anybody wanting to explore that field more.
