Very Nice ideas. I saw this concept used once in a semi close up routine and really liked it a lot. It's just so devious and sneaky! I don't know why but it never occurred to me that this could be "upsized" to play beautifully for a parlor/cabaret setting for a bigger audience. (head slap) The thing I like most is that the first routine can be customized to pretty much any theme or selections that fit your performance style, it's easy to do, and very fooling. You also have the flexibility to play this any way you like.... Prediction, influence, mind reading... whatever floats your psychic boat. I could see this working really well as a good opener to a mentalism set and as we all know good mentalism openers are difficult to find. Well worth the money!
Way overpriced for what you get. I hate when people overcharge for stuff like this promoting it as "insider" cold reading material. This book should have been in the 6 or seven dollar range. Just save your money for some of the better cold reading material listed on lybrary.com and look up some positive quotes for free online. There isn't any practical advice offered in this manuscript that has to do with readings.
