Thank you very much.

It is in progress, but there is a while to go.

I have read enough reviews of this and got it in and can not believe I waited so long.

I have skimmed most of it and now I am 1/3rd of the way through it and am amazed at how much information is in this ebook. Thoughts, ideas, recommendations, many contributers, etc.

I have used billets in a few situations and in a couple of routines over the years and this has my brain going nuts with what I am going to do and how I can improve what I have done in the past and will do very soon.

I would say that this ebook is meant for every mentalist to learn more than what is obvious, but for what is not obvious. I read this and follow along and find a deeper meaning than I did previously...hey, billets are not everday for me...until now.

There is a lot of content here, but to me what is important is the process. Many ways to get information and this is helping me to find out what fits me naturally. Not having a mentor, this is the next best thing.

Elliott, thanks for a great product!

-Scott M.

Thank you so much, Scott and spinki. I really appreciate your comments.

Scott, I hope you enjoy the next 2/3's of the book as much as the first third. There's some really great stuff for you to look forward to.

Thanks again,

Elliott

Let me add something which hasn't been noted.

You may not use billet switching, and you may think Switchcraft has nothing for you.

You are wrong. I keep coming back to the Osterlind Perfect Center Tear, and I have learned an ENORMOUS amount about how to handle MYSELF through Switchcraft.

I have been getting better and better at cold reading, and I have learned even more about how to handle my audience and myself through Switchcraft.

Like Tarbell, there are lessons underneath the instructions. I think it's even possible that Elliott doesn't realize how much he's been teaching.

Thank you so much, Chet. You’re absolutely right.

Much of what is discussed in the series, especially in the four 2009 supplements released so far, can be applied to the center tear. Over time, I have given much thought to my center tear performances in order to minimize the likelihood of something going wrong, make certain that every action is perfectly motivated, and ensure that, in the unlikely event that something does go wrong, I have ironclad backup plans.

Some of the ideas I use are included in the Switchcraft supplements released so far, and I posted some of the others on various boards, although some are just hinted at. Who knows, I might just put some in a future supplement.

Of course, I’ll never have the Center Tear knowledge and expertise of Richard Osterlind, who, aside from being instrumental in the development of the modern instant-read Center Tear, probably does more Center Tears in a week than I do in a year.

I am really impressed with this pdf. If you are interested in mentalism, this is just a must-buy. And the good news is that the supplements now deal mostly with new effects (or new twists on classical effects) - I think that we have enough techniques in the litterature to secretly learn the spectator's thougts. The descriptions are very clear, and there are a lot of informations and subtleties on billet work (which is in my opinion the epitome of mentalism). Now, if you don't trust me, consider this: you get 462 pages for your 20 $: you can't go wrong with this - and my prediction is that some further supplements are coming...
I want to say a big "thank you" to Elliott for his work. Buy this before he realises that he is a fool to sell it for 20 $.

Thank you so much, J.J.

I really appreciate your comments.

Your prediction regarding future supplements will most likely be proven correct, as several are in progress.

Y'know, we each love you Elliott, but you might never know it the way we each keep calling you a fool. (Myself included.)

Oops!

I’ll happily take comments like “He’s crazy for giving this away for $19.95”

They're a lot better (at least, from my perspective) than “You’d be crazy to buy this for $19.95” Smile

Thank you for asking, Tim.

In fact there are several supplements in progress. It’s a busy time of year for me, but I have not stopped working on the series.

I recently posted a 9 page billet related article on a private forum. That and some other in-progress material are expected to be in the next supplement.

Aside from my own work, I have received several contributions of material, including a full billet peek.

It is in the new Switchcraft section of the Alchemy Moon forum. I previously asked a moderator to grant you access to the Switchcraft area, so you should be able to check it out. That said, you might want to wait for the article’s appearance in a future supplement, as the formatting was totally butchered when I pasted it from my MS Word file to the board . In its present state, it is hardly readable.

Paolo, I changed my mind.

The discussion regarding the first article is getting really interesting. We have some great, easy and powerful multiple revelation billet sequences.

The formatting problem is a little annoying, but the content is getting really good. You may want to check it out after all.

The discussion regarding the first article keeps getting better. We've come up with a nice six punch billet test.

I posted a second billet related article in the Switchcraft area of Alchemy Moon. The article describes a good peek you may want to check out.
