For years Ron and Nancy have fooled audiences worldwide with their Minds in Harmony act. Here, for the first time, they reveal all of their treasured secrets - secrets that will enable the reader to recreate this act in its entirety. In his foreword to this book Edwin Dawes says: "Despite the numerous times I have seen Ron and Nancy Spencer present their act it has never palled, the freshness and apparent spontaneity of their interaction (not to mention the challenge for the magician of endeavouring to detect their methods!) has captured the imagination.
For much of the second half of the twentieth century Minds in Harmony brought pleasure and mystery to audiences. Now, as Ron and Nancy have retired from performing, they have decided to divulge the details of their techniques, a decision that will be welcomed by those who wish to emulate them as well as by those who are simply curious to learn how it was done. Hard work is the short answer but the reader will find everything he or she needs to set about mastering a two-person telepathic act and one that can be constructed from material that has been tried, tested and proven to be hugely successful."
The Spencer's complete act is revealed here for the first time anyone with the desire to learn a baffling two-way telepathy act need look no further. This wonderful book has 140 pages together with numerous line drawings and photographic illustrations. It is a large format hardback volume (nine-and-a-half inches by 6-and-a-quarter inches) printed on high quality paper with a full colour, glossy-laminated dust jacket.
Review by Peter Zenner:
After several years of delay, for one reason or another, Ron and Nancy Spencer's book Telepathy Personified has now made its grand entrance. Martin Breese has done them proud and I must confess that my first word on opening this package was 'WOW'!
The Spencers have used the photograph reproduced on the dust wrapper as a publicity photograph but this was the first time I had seen it in full colour. Their radiant smiles beam out at you and you can't help but like them !
American mentalists will no doubt remember Ron and Nancy from their performance at the 1995 PEA Convention in Seattle. They were rewarded with a standing ovation there and Ron certainly deserves one for his lucid explanation of their two person telepathy act(s) described herein. Nothing is kept back and their techniques are very simple, starting with the easy to learn basics and then progressing for those who are hooked on this type of presentation. Nothing is held back -- if you have seen the Spencer's perform a particular item then here it is, fully explained.
For over 50 years, Ron and Nancy have charmed their audiences and graced magical gatherings with their presence. I confess to knowing them for over thirty of those years but that does not diminish my admiration for them and their professionalism. Ill health has forced their retirement and this book will serve as a memento for those who have known them and an inspiration for those who would like to emulate them.
