Max Maven sits down in the library at the Magic Castle in Hollywood to share a straightforward and practical feat of telepathy. While the method is relatively simple, Max's decades of experience yield beautiful insight into the performance of magic and mentalism, and he elucidates many details within the routine and shares a simple exercise which will inevitably make you a better performer.
Orson Welles wrote that Max Maven has “the most original mind in magic.” Fortuitously, he died before he could revise that opinion. The New York Times observed that Max’s “category-defying mind-reading show veers into conceptual art.” People magazine hailed his work as “a new form of participatory theater.” The Los Angeles Times stated that his “improvisational skill is enhanced by a charismatic animal magnetism.” No, we don’t know exactly what that’s supposed to mean, but apparently audiences in over three dozen countries agree. Max has been a consultant to most of the important names in modern magic and an advisor for more than one hundred television shows. He has published about two thousand tricks, articles, and essays, and now he is very tired.
