I bought this quite a while back. I'm still getting supplements. I think I'm up to 19 supplements at no additional charge now.
No trees were killed in the making of this message, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

Thank you 13 and Dave!

The current count is 20 supplements (plus an additional 3 for the people who bought Mind Blasters USA from me.)

The 21st supplement to Switchcraft, “Flashes of Inspiration – Volume One”, went out a few days ago.

It includes a subtlety to make almost any force seem incredibly fair, a method for spirit writing, 7 Living & Dead Test ideas, a modification for two billet switches, a great utility item and Dave Arch’s “Place Setting” routine.

Special thanks to Dave Arch for graciously contributing his excellent effect.

Additional thanks to Connor Jacobs for the incredible job he did editing the supplement. Connor made what is normally the toughest part of the process remarkably easy.

Copies went out to everyone on the Switchcraft mailing list. Some emails bounced. If you are on my list and have not received the supplement, please do not hesitate to let me know. However, due to my crazy schedule this time a year, please allow me some extra time to get back to you.

For the record, the Switchcraft file available on my site now includes:

Switchcraft
The Billet Machine
Billet Proof
Silver Billet
Back from the Dead
Stack Master
CT's Switch
Q 4 U 2
The Zombie Chicken Read

This is the work that convinced me to start using billets. It also allowed me to succeed at more of the advanced work in Allen Zinng's Master Billet Course. Many Thanks Elliot for you continued generosity!

Such a great book deserves its own treatment: I just come home from the printer who did a great job!
Frankly, I just can't stand ebooks.

Trust me, it's so much more comfortable and easier to simply have a physical copy..... sort of!

There's a forest in New Hampshire that exists today because Elliott decided to put it out as an ebook.

Switchcraft by Elliot Bresler. What an awesome book. As Elliott says, almost any mentalism effect can be produced with billets. The billet is part of the simple method the effect is built around. The billet is not the focus of the effect, only a means to get the information needed (switch, peek, tear). With a handful of well developed routines and good showmanship, you can go anywhere and do killer mentalism with scraps of paper or business cards.

There's a video of a famous mentalist doing a drawing duplication on a major TV talk show. It's quite impressive. Two big pads of paper and two markers. Turned away from each other, the show host draws a picture. The mentalist draws a picture. When the pads are turned around, the drawings are almost identicle. That's the big, impressive effect.

But before the pads of paper were introduced, the mentalist had the TV show host first draw her picture on the the back of his business card (a billet). I won't reveal the specific method, but will say Switchcraft by Elliot Bresler will teach you an arsenal of techniques for secretly knowing, in a split second, what has been written on a billet. Knowing what has been written, you can do a drawing dupe or any one of many impressive routines.

I love this book.

Genius.

Purchased Switchcraft from Eillot Bressler recently.

This book is a treasure...really.

655 pages (book plus many supplements). Step-by-step, detailed instructions. Clear, crisp photos.

In addition to everything you could possibly want to know about switching, there are also many peeks revealed in the supplements!

A wonderful resource and a truly one of the most amazing bargains available in mentalism.

I will be studying and using these concepts and methods for many years.

I got this recently and have to agree - quite simply one of the best resources a mentalist could have. There are very few books that I consider ESSENTIAL for a mentalist - so much is down to personal taste and performing style but I would say without doubt that Switchcraft is defintely ESSENTIAL.

Switchcraft is not a book. It is a lifetime achievement!

Thanks, Elliot!

It's a must have for everybody who is interested in billet work. That's say, for everybody who is interested in mentalism, even people who think it's a old school stuff. You can do a lot of effects with only one book and no material. So much clever ideas inside that, it's insane ! Smile . Thanks a lot Elliot for sharing this incredible work with community !

A fellow down the street printed out two copies of Switchcraft and built a house with them.

I've added a chapter on folding paper airplanes to my copy.

Bert Reese testified in court that he wasn't a fraud. "Your honor, I have the ability to read thoughts which are written on little pieces of paper." Old Bert had no idea how far this could be taken...but Elliot does.
