MITOX - Review

Price : £25

Difficulty : Various. Some of the effects are almost self working. Others need practise and patter, but are not beyond the abilities of me, so anyone, with effort, should be able to do them. They will be as good as your presentation.
They say :
20 Powerful Effects
I like things to be simple and easy. I hate gimmicks and gaffs. I like backups in case things go wrong. I like strong effects, which give me the chance to shine through. I love impromptu. Above all I like the audience, for a moment at the very least, to believe.

I hate dealer hype, and I hate the disappointment of buying a text full of clever but unworkable effects. For this reason I have been through Mitox and stripped out anything that wasn’t 110% great. Anything I wasn’t happy with: out. Anything which was difficult to do: out. Anything which audiences didn’t respond to with real feeling: out.

So what’s left?

20 industrial strength effects that will knock your audiences for six.

I Say :

What you get is an A5 size, beautifully presented approximately 166 page, soft cover, book – professionally printed.

Inside are twenty mentalism effects, each presented as effect, method and often followed by additional ‘thoughts’. The book is appropriately complimented by superbly clear, black and white line drawings, that really do help the explanations.

Of additional, and real value, are the mini essays that intersperse the book. These let the book flow really nicely, but also provide real food for thought. So much so that I am rewriting much of my own scripting, which will certainly be more powerful and salient.

This is a great book. Small, concise and real world. I won’t be selling my copy!

Overall :

I salute Phill for taking the time to produce this. No padding, just 20 excellent effects of different types, interweaved with some excellent mini-essays that will get the self reflective juices flowing, and can only improve ones performance and content.

Rating : 9/10. Well, nothings perfect, is it ?

Finished my 4 months of Chemotherapy in 2009. 3 monthly checks since... and into 2016!

As seen on the QE2 and QM2.
