Don't know why everyone is always gushing over Mr. Bresler. By my count, he's only released 19 updates to Switchcraft since it's initial release. If he gave away this original release for free, then you're all paying OVER $1.00 for each update.

You're getting taken!

Greg,

Thanks for your wonderful suggestion and making it so simple I did not even have to look for Elliott's Paypal email address.

My advice to Elliott long ago was to quit sending out updates and supplements and start working on compiling Switchcraft Vol. 2. Obviously, he did not take my advice. In light of his stubbornness, you offer the best alternative. So simple, why didn't anyone else think of it before. I am glad you popped up to encourage this.

And Elliott, if you are lurking about, thank you.

My e-mail got bounced back. I had to delete a few older e-mails. Send it to me again! LOL

This is an e-book that gets my vote for the best book ever of this subject!

Thank you so much, Dave, Rocketeer, Greg, Jerskin, Pablo, Ray, Bobby, GDGrey, Tom, Barry, Tony, Derek, Phill, Nicolino, Funnybaldbloke, Bev, Steven, Bobby, Ray and Ray!

I’d also like to thank the people who bought Mind Blasters USA from me and those who sent me $5.

The 20th supplement, “Cast Your Billet,” went out last night.

It includes a center tear, five billet switches, two billet presentations, and lots of great tips and ideas.

Special thanks go to Barrie Richardson, Mauricio Jaramillo, Tim Zager and Millard Longman for contributing (or allowing me to include) their excellent techniques, routine and ideas.

Copies went out to everyone on the Switchcraft mailing list. Some emails bounced (mostly due to file size) and I have attempted to contact all of those people, so that I can get the supplement to them. If you are on my list and have not received the supplement and have not been contacted by me, please do not hesitate to let me know.

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
Alexander Marsh’s Tel.
Ken Krenzel’s Psychologia
Secrets of the Masters Volume One
Secrets of the Masters Volume Two
Playing with Blocks
Secrets of the Masters Volume Three
Tervil Extra Bold and Other Cool Stuff
The Switchcraft Holiday Special
Three
ConFab Four and More!
Chiber & Other Cool Stuff
Cast Your Billet


Thanks again,

Elliott

Elliott, thanks so much for the supplement. There've been loads of folded pieces of card all over my desk ever since I bought Switchcraft.

Hello everyone.

I'm Andreu. I've been interested in Mentalism as an art from about a year ago.

Haven't really had enough time to become an expert at this fantastic craft..
I'm not a pro performer by any means but I assure you, I'm trying to get there everyday. Smile

I just finished reading Switchcraft, I promised Elliott I would do a review of his book, so here is the result:

_______________________________________________

*** Switchcraft by Elliot Bressler - Review ***

After days (and nights) of reading Switchcraft, I'm ready to say that this is indeed one of the best Mentalism books I've ever read in my life.

Although I'm a very visual person (I tend to learn easily by watching videos and not descriptions) I think this book really excels at being clear with the instructions for the easiest switches I have ever known, and at giving you everything you need for surprising friends or family with some great routines...

The ideas taught here are invaluable, I think I've grown a lot as a performer (and in general) from reading this fantastic book... I can't recommend this highly enough, it teaches you fantastic stuff like creating your own routines, Switchcraft will get your imagination running wild, and will make you feel very comfortable as a performer..

Even though I'm not as oriented to close-up mentalism and I have always prefered Stage, this book is filled with fantastic routines that you can instantly use or adapt to any setting, reading this will get you in a very creative state of mind, expanding your reality like never before.. Smile

I find this book absolutely wonderful, can't praise it highly enough.

I may contribute some of my work very soon, I have even developed some new personal switches and ideas...

Cheers!

PD Thank you very much Elliott for this fantastic journey of 625 pages, they are worth gold !!! Smile

Ditto Nique.
The only problem I have with this dedicated work is trying to remember all the information it has to offer. Just when I get close deciding on a few favorites, in comes the next update! As others have said, the photo illustrations are perfect. Aside from the Rice encyclopedia this is the most comprehensive work on one subject I've ever seen. Thank you again and best wishes for the holiday season Bob D

Dear Elliot

Please stop sending me updates to Switchcraft. I no longer need any more switches, or cool peeking paper type mentalism methods.

And it's taking up too much of my valuable time.

Cheers

Bev

PS Not really


HaHa!

Prediction:

In 2024 this book will be 103,324 pages.

Thank you so much for the review, Andreu!!

Bob and Nique – I very much appreciate your comments. Nique, I hope the mess on your desk was worth it.


Bryn, I hope you’re right!

Certainly Elliott! I've put together a sequence (a mixture of the handlings in Switchcraft) which I've used on many an occasion, and they play as strongly as other routines of mine which use expensive gadgetry.

Thank you, Luca. There will most likely be a printed version at some point in the future.

In the meantime, a 21st supplement for Switchcraft and my 4th supplement for Mind Blasters USA are both in progress. I’ve been working on both at once.

I am almost done with the writing portion of Switchcraft supplement # 21. Then I will need to edit it and update my Thank You section.

The Mind Blasters USA supplement is also coming along nicely.

I can't believe so much time elapsed since my last post on this thread. I guess these supplements take time to write.

Ah. That’s why the link on my site did not work. I’ll have to fix it later. It was fun being in the “Penny” section while it lasted. I did not realize the moderators were moving threads dating back as far as 2006.
