Elliott,

Haven't had chance to read it all the way through yet but..thanks again for another top notch supplement!

I've said it before but I'll say it again, this has to be the best investment in mentalism ebooks I've ever made. A very reasonably priced Ebook and one that keeps growing free of charge year after year!

If you haven't picked this up yet....just do it!

I'm not one for hype but this will definitely be the best investment in billet work that you'll ever get.

Keep up the good work Elliott.

I just had a chance to look over the latest supplement and it is so great I am going to try it out tomorrow. Thanks for the tip Elliot and it is so great that you can get everything you need at the corner office supply store.

Guys if you haven't got Elliott's book you're missing out. One day he is going to get smart and raise the price or even better split all this stuff up for $20 each instead of getting it all for this low price.

Elliott how do you setup your camera and video cam to capture the stills? Also how did you put it in the book?

Thank you so much, Nathan, Mark and Tim.

Tim, putting video footage in a PDF is a painless process.

I used my cheap digital camera and an even cheaper tripod to shoot the videos.

I started shooting, swung my hands around the tripod, and performed the techniques.

Then, I uploaded the files to my computer, edited out the portions where my hands swung around the tripod, and saved the files.

I prepared the Instructions in MS Word and left blank spaces for the videos.

I printed the word file to a PDF. Then, I went into the PDF file using Acrobat 7 and inserted the Windows Media Player videos using Acrobat's Movie Tool.

The only downside is that video files in a PDF use much more memory than photos. So, if you include too many, then your document will get cumbersome.

Thanks again,

Elliott

Guys just to let you know I was able to buy the stuff Elliot this afternoon. I tried it out and it made me think - hey this is *** cool. Bottom line, this effect alone is worth the $20.

Let me also remind you that I am doing everything I can to get Elliot to raise the price July 1st so this might be your last chance to get this book for only $20.

I get nothing for recommending this book but I will say that this is the best $20 I have spent to date.

Just wanted to add... This Ebook is the best value I've purchased in a while. These techniques are applicable to so many other routines and can even make them easier as well as more amazing!

If you do not have this yet you need to get it!

I have to add my thanks. This latest installment is amazing. I'm always looking for practical, commercial material, particularly for stroll around, and Elliott just dropped some A-list effects in my lap.
I won't bring up the "He needs to charge more for this" topic. Last time I did caused a fire storm.
I will humbly just say, "Thank you, Elliott. I will use these." I can think of no higher praise.

Thanks Dan,

It’s really great to hear that you will be adopting some of the material from “Secrets of the Masters Volume Two” into your repertoire.

In fact, the material is so easy and powerful, that I can’t imagine anyone not wanting to try it out Smile

I hope that we’ll hear even more on this board once other café members learn the material and obtain the necessary items.

Thanks again,

Elliott

I'm all in favor of Elliott raising the price on this -- for everyone except me, of course!

Guys I have been vocal about him raising the price because he needs to charge what this ebook is worth. I mean if you were to land one crappy gig using this material alone what would that be worth to you?

What is it worth to you to make your coworkers faces drop when you do one of these routines.

I am all for value but even Wal Mart needs to make a living.

I think I have Elliott talked into stripping the ebook down to it's original format for $20, then every couple of supplements would be an additional volume for a small charge.

So fair warning I am not stopping until he raises the price. If you want it for cheap it is now or never.

Oh and I am even trying to talk him into a video course.

Yeah us.

Thanks Tim,

I think I have reached a point where 90% of the mentalism e-book buying population already owns “Switchcraft.” So, even a large and tremendously well received supplement like “Secrets of the Master Volume Two,” which took over a month to write, resulted in less than $100 of new sales.

I haven’t made up my mind just yet, but am considering several options.

In the meantime, I would like to thank the people who posted feedback about "Secrets of the Master Volume Two."

Tony, Mind_Magic, Paolo, Mauricio, Steve, Eric, Magiguy, Charles, Aleksi, Andreas, Mark, Greg, Mr. Mindbender, DrTodd, hornet, Daylite, andykean, Nicholas, Jan, Nathan, Mark, Tim, Marc, Dan and mrdane…

PM me your email addresses, and I will send you a special manuscript on billet work.

Thanks again,

Elliott

I am ashamed to say that I got Switchcraft just yesterday. I wasnt a fan of billet work at all and the only thing that I perform with billets was Name/Place routine of Bob Cassidy. I read a tiny tiny part of Elliot's awesome work and it already changed my opinion about billet work, I only read 4 switches so far and liked 2 of them very much,started practicing and even better, Elliot's work even changed the workings of the only billet routine I perform. Great work, this will take sooo much time to absorb all. Lovely.


( for those who are wondering, I will use E.B Tear in my Name/Place routine once I feel comfortable doing it,just started practicing today)

Thank you so much, daghank.

I am glad you already found several moves you will use.

Hopefully, in time, you will come across even more techniques that suit your style, and maybe some routines too.

Thanks again,

Elliott

I have been having so much FUN playing with the latest ideas in the newest supplement. Wonderful ideas!

Now granted, my son got a kick out of me writing "you're not dumb!" then watching the magic happen to "not" (thank you Office Max) and giggling like crazy.

But this is some great stuff.

It just needs to be said, this last one alone is more than worth the investment.

I agree completely. I really cannot begin to explain just how much I have gotten out of Switchcraft. The only reason I use billets today is because of this book. The knowledge it holds and the motivation it provides is worth much more to me than the price.

If you have not purchased it because you do not have an interest in billet work then you are really missing out. Switchcraft WILL change your mind on what you can do with a little piece of paper.

Thank you so much, Nathan and Aaron.

Early this morning I thought up an insanely good billet technique.

I’ve tested it on almost every single person I’ve met today, and it rocks!

It’s so good, so foolproof and so easy to execute, that I am confident it will be adopted into the repertoires of 100% of the people who spend the necessary five minutes to learn it. There will be no exceptions.

I’ll begin writing the instructions tomorrow night. I’ll also need to research a bit to see if anyone else has tried it. Frankly, it seems unlikely that anyone else is doing exactly what I came up with, or else everyone and their kid brother would already be using this.

“Secrets of the Masters Volume Two” just came out and has not yet come close to generating the volume of sales I had hoped. However, I am so excited about the new technique, that I will release it to my mailing list the moment I sell just 10 new copies of Switchcraft, starting now (assuming, in all likelihood, that this does not occur until after I have finished writing the instructions.)

So, please feel free to recommend Switchcraft to 10 friends.

Trust me, you won’t regret it and neither will they.


Thanks again,

Elliott

I really think there should be a place for the switchcraft users to share ideas,routines. I already have a few already that I'm excited about.
