For anyone who hasn't seen this yet... It's awesome.

I'm a big fan of the way Michael thinks after reading this one. I've heard good things about his book but this was my first introduction to his material (besides Between The Lines from years ago). The whole booklet is based on a VERY simple cold reading system which involves no memory work. It can easily be added into any oracle you are already using OR added into routines etc.

The past couple weeks I've been using the system with a few routines I've already been using and the results have been fantastic. Michael points out that there is no "100%" cold reading system out there and that's true. With that said, I've been hitting well and getting a lot more "yes" answers from Michael's system.

I put up a small video review here:

As of yesterday, I talked to Michael briefly to let him know I was going to do a small review. He mentioned he has about 10 left. So if this is something you are interested in, it's about to become a collectors item...

Pablo Amira pointed out that in the video I said that Completely Cold by Kenton Knepper used a lot of memory work. Because this was suppose to be a short video I didn't script it and recheck it. I misspoke about another system which had a much larger memory process.

There is no formal memory work needed for Completely Cold. However, there is a lot of information presented and needs to be digested to fully understand (I think that's fair to say).

Kenton's Completely Cold system is fantastic and would actually work very well with Michael's (or own it's own obviously). I believe Michael's system is a much better start for a beginner to get them up and running AND is easier BUT Kenton's has more depth which can be applied after.

A large heartfelt apology to Kenton, your product is great.

My pleasure! It's a wonderful addition to the mentalism I'm already performing.

Thanks for the review!
Knowing it will be on his next book and knowing myself I'll buy his next book for sure, so I'll skip knowing it for now, but for those that still can get that book do it! I'm sure it is of great value knowing his material :)

I too found 0290 to be incredible! I must admit that I have yet to purchase anything from Michael that I don't find spectacular. With that being said, this is an incredible deal for a system that is intuitive and practical. I have studied several reading systems, and this one immediately replaced them all. I can't see myself ever doing serious stand-alone readings, so I can't speak to its usability within that context. However, I can't imagine this not being a useful tool within any reader's tool belt.

This is one of the most natural ways to achieve rapport with a spectator. There is genuinely no memory work and nothing to carry.
You can incorporate this technique even out of performance - what's not to like ... oh, other than Murray's done it again! :)
