I have finally got round to posting my thoughts on this. Kennedy is a friend of mine however I strongly believe that this routine is useable, practical and effective.

As someone who tends not to use cards in mentalism, I adapted the presentation to tarot cards with quite a dark script and a pseudo-induction the whole thing comes together nicely.

I do believe that anyone who buys it needs to write their own scripts as Kennedy mentions and also to adapt it to themselves as performers as well as individual performances.

Also with a small amount of work on scripting you can remove any possibility of the spectators backtracking the effect which means it can be used close-up. See Kennedys thoughts on this issue for his two way telepathy routine "Open Transmission" as published in Thoughts So Far...

I have found this routine useable already just in social situations and will continue to do so in more formal situations.

Best wishes,
TM

Is this no backtracking explained in Tell Tale factor or is it necessary to purchase Thoughts so far aswell if you want to perform close up . I had understood that TTF principle could be used close up , with some adaptions .

It can be used close-up without having to spend money on Thoughts So Far. I just like to add the extra depths to it that are explained in "Open Transmission". I do however strongly recommend you get Thoughts So Far. Not just because it was written by a good friend of mine but because it is a great book with so many routines, principles and extra convincers that can be used with any routine. An example is this backtracking thing from Open Transmission.

However if you buy Tell Tale Factor it can be done close-up if you think it through a little bit.

Enjoy...

Thankyou Robert ,
I will think it through , I like to think ! I really enjoy new ideas too . I guess I have to much time to think about it while waiting for it to cross the pond . If it is as good as I am expecting I will probably get TSF as it was on my list anyway .

Just finished to read Tell-Tale Factor. I hope because thisis my first post here some of you don't think my opinion is less valid than others. Everyone has had his first post at the start, right?

While I appreciate the idea and the thinking behind TTF I think that the whole concept is a little bit overrated. Nothing new under the sun for me, really. I'm not surprised that Kenton Knepper has endorsed something like that since TTF is very close to Knepper's thinking but Knepper's thinking is not always practical. Do not get me wrong, there are some booklets by Knepper which are brilliant but there are also some pipe dreams a la Al Mann.

I simply happen to think that TTF is not that good.

Mariagi:

Welcome to the board and thanks for your honest and sincere review. I feel less bad about not being able to purchase this limited edition.

Hi.

Just want to give everyone my apologies for the wait. As you know the orders are out of my hands as they are solely processed by Cafépress.

I have emailed them myself regarding the problems and am waiting for a reply.

Thanks for your patience and support, I'll keep you informed.

Kindest,
Kennedy

Greetings,

I recently purchased this booklet on the recommendation of a good friend. After a second try, CaféPress delivered the Tell Tale Factor. I found it to be a useful principle that can be applied in a variety of situations. My only "issue" is the grammar/English/typos. While the ease of self-publishing has made it easier to get good material out there, it would be nice if care were put into the content as well.

That said, the principle and scripts provided are very good. I am sure I'll incorporate this idea into my larger shows.

Sincerely,
Sam Haine

I think this outlet is incredibly potent and versatile.

I’ll also be honest, as I’m glad that there are people who don’t like the Tell Tale Factor.

It makes me smile when I see others shy away from it, as it only proves to make my personal use of it even more exclusive.

For that, I am grateful.

Beyond myself, I’m curious as to who has actually has tried this?

Mdspark,

Perhaps I wasn’t clear.

I have performed this. I do think I was one of the first to actually try it out after its release. Or at least, one of the first to acknowledge my doing so.

I have a lengthy review of it in another thread, of which, details how I have used it with great impact. It was my first attempt no less.

With that said, I'll ask it again.

Anyone else performing this?

I hope that clears things up.

I suspect that the crickets I hear must indicate a "no."

I figured as much.

I have attempted this but I had a few slight problems in getting the message across. English ain't the national language or dialect here so I'm coming up with my own version which will immediately be understood by the people here.
