This is really bad teaching. He teach how to create prop but really really rough in presentation.
No patter teach. The author spend very few statement to describe his effect.
I can't say effect or method is bad but no example, no scenario, really bad explanation.
I think the author should edit this version, refine it or even make a short youtube video to explain it to compensate what is in the ebook.
If you don't believe me, buy this book and have fun with the content.
This little ebook is the best system for the "Low Vision" as the title say.
The system make a "contrast" identification. When you read it at the first time you might worry about it but finally the system is very powerful.
Also, the author provides the comparative information to look further in the reference.
Just because something is given to you for free does not mean it is of no value sometimes a author wants you to open your mind and be creative with what you have learnt all information is priceless when use correctly
Buy if not all ready owned two Svengali decks and one matching deck and make two sets up one for each jacket pocket when doing walk around a nice little fooler recommended for fooling magician friends too.
Haven worn out through heavy practice I purchased 2 Bicycle Svengali decks + plus free deck of cards from a well known auction site and I was back up and working, lesson learnt if you like a effect have more than one set.
"Reading" was mentioned a little bit in "Freeform mentalism" dvd/download but didn't prepare the detail.
If you are a beginner that buy some Peter products already, you would notice that he do a lot of cold(maybe not that cold, read this book if you want to know more) reading without knowing a person before.
I tried some of his technique a couple hours ago. The spectator was shudder.
oh, I'm totally beginner.
This is another self-working. A lot of great idea in this ebook. I just used the routine in the afternoon. Just focus on your "Presentation" and refine it to fit your context. Also those bonus in this ebook are worth a price.
This is extraordinary ! I have known the 2 basic principles in play here, almost all my life. But the way these are combined by the author - just simply brilliant. This can be a game changer - tis that good. Hats off to the author. Practically nothing for the performer to do - except present it well. All else is self working and unbelievably hands off - real pleasure to perform. Excellent work - highly recommended.
For anyone wanting to get into readings - get this one right away. One can learn a vast range of topics and techniques in the quickest possible time. A lot of ground is covered without fluff or fillers. I really enjoyed this one.
Pros - All self working, no slights, borrowed deck and some interesting principles.
Cons - Tricks have 'longish' process. A lot of dealing n counting involved.
But once I understood the basic principle, I could structure the tricks to suit my style.
Needless to say I had printed up my own copy of this effect within 5 minutes after reading the instructions.
I give it a 25+ rating.
Thank you for putting out your amazing effects and giving it to us undeserving mortals who pretend to be gods with your ideas.
Way to go UNKNOWN MENTALIST!!!
Another nice effect by the UNKNOWN MENTALIST and MICHAEL LYTH. I haven't used this yet but plan to. I can see that this simple effect will leave the spectator speechless and in my opinion that after you get used to the principle involved you can use this on multiple spectators at the same time. Not bad for a business card(s) effect. I give this a 20+ rating.
This is another winner by the UNKNOWN MENTALIST!!! You wont really find anything new in this ebook but I never thought of updating these effects in this way. I know that I will use this material every now and then. Again the UNKNOWN MENTALIST is a brilliant thinker updating this material and giving it life again! I give this a 15+ for the impact it will have on spectators.
I already bought Julian Moore's Cartomancy, it was great, I learned my card reading skill from the book. I saw this book's advertise on magiccafe. I want to learn more on cartomancy so I bought this product, but after I received the product, I was very upset, totally waste of money. Very Poor quality product, the MP3 file is very poor recording quality with a lot of noise, only 2 pages of PDF file, and charging for 35 US dollars...I just can't believe this is what I bought. Sorry I learned nothing from it and was pissed off. Really disappointed. This product should not be published. I would not buy anything from this author anymore. I would recommend those who want to learn cartomancy to buy Julian Moore's book.
These are a couple of cool methods for doing instant magic squares. Easy to learn and quick to perform. Just a bit of practice and you are on your way. Once acquired, these will be your permanent assets. Easy on pocket too.
Has Martin Gardner ever disappointed? This is great value for money with some superb effects. The first effect 'A close fit' was truly baffling. I really had to try it to believe it. X-ray Touch and Use your Head are 2 of my favs. Easy n amazing.
"Illusion Show Know How" is an extremely valuable real world experience book. The information about living/working on the road, especially when it was written in a pre-internet, pre-celluar world, served me well. The chapter on how to get your mail on the road was worth many times the cost of the book, but not now, since the USPS is no longer one’s lifeline to communication.
