These books sound like they have some killer effects in them. Would anybody care to give a review?

I'm pretty curious too. I've just about bought every Number/Mathemagical book out there these last couple of years. Does this contain anything new? My daughter and I have had some fun with these routines on the Magic Café. Are these fun too?

Sorry that this is off the subject -
but I'm attending a lecture/workshop by Doc and would like an idea of the best stuff he sells.
The guys usually turn up with piles of dvd's and books and I can't buy them all !!!

I'm even thinking about getting these. Only problem is that I know how much Docc tends to sensationalize all of his descriptions.

I've already sold my copies because I need the money for other ventures I am looking at. However, I can say that if you liked Docc's other stuff you will love these books. They come with more tricks than his other books of equivalent price. They are NOT books about number calculations etc (like Busch's Number...Please etc.) These books contain effects that have to do with numbers for example, serial bill diviniations, other money effects, phone directory tests etc. Hope that clears some stuff up. I found a lot of very practical information within the pages of the books. Some stuff I would definitely not use. Others I would use to suit my presentation. Once again though I think he really shines in the stuff he calls Real-Time Mentalism. Effects that I particularly liked include Bartender's Nightmare, Crystal Vision, In-nile-lation, Tempest, Devil Dice, Her Number and Three Sided Brain.

David if you wouldnt mind, providing some thoughts on those individual effects you enjoyed would be nice.

Practicality, impromptu, accurately described, etc.

thanks

In the book of numbers 1 docc mentions in the intro that with 'real time mentalism', you can leave your NW and other props at home, then the first effect uses a NW... hmmm.
remember....always use your powers for good!

Pcm,

That's actually the fly page. If you keep reading, the Introduction explains that not every trick in the series of over 20 effects can all be Real Time Mentalism, and why the ones requiring simple props are included.

Read on my friend. It's fun and enlightening.
