Bought it immediately (paypal'd you). I loved all your earlier stuff too.
BTW... you ARE the same guy who opens by looking at the audience and going:........ "Boo!".
That's right, yeah?

ps: Looking forward to reading it Rick. Take care.

2 sets of lecture notes from Rick and only...$22.00 ???

Zowee!! Yea for the philosophy of making a quick nickel instead of a slow dime. At these rates everybody can afford them.

This is a great set of lecture notes at a great price!!! Really good stuff inside. Now, at the end, there are two effects that are just fantastic!!! The presentations are perfect, but the methods made me scream. They are so good that I wanted to send a group of musically inclined monkeys over to Rick so they could tie him up for me and stop him from putting this out!!!

Collect Call and Celebrity Impressions are gold!!! The methods for both were created by a mad, funny genius. Collect Call's method immediately had me thinking of various other ways to use it. And Celebrity Impressions also had me chomping at the bit to work out my own use for it.

The man's a genius!!!

He's got a great open prediction type of effect. When I first read it I thought he was going to say it worked with some sort of gimmicked cards and was surprised to find it was just regular cards.

Thank you so much, Greg. I'll probably pick it up once I read a detailed review. I've become pretty cheap about buying new stuff, but I liked the other Rick Maue items I purchased.

Yep.. that's Maven
and just like cheek-chin routine you better not use that joke
since nobody ever used a boo in a Mentalism context

:-D I love that guy!

Just to let everyone know, Bobser was just joking in regard to the Boo thing. I am one of those guys that always rants about people that steal from others, so please don't think that he was serious.

And thanks for the really nice words everyone, I'm very glad that you like The Road. But man, you should see my unpublished variations, plus the additional subtleties. Perhaps someday... Smile

But seriously, my goal with this ebook was to buck the trend a little and put out some decent mentalism at a very affordable price. My friends told me to charge more, but that's just not my style. If you guys are happy, then I did the right thing.

Thanks again for your continued support.


Keep the change,
Rick

I really enjoy Rick Maue's work, and thought I'd give this a try. My initial impressions are that the effects are interesting, and although they are put forward as being professional pieces which have been extensively 'road tested' as such, they are not outwith the scope of the amateur duffer in terms of the basic moves. As usual, RM keeps these to a pared-down minumum, the emphasis always being on the effect sought rather than the cleverness of sleight or gimmick. Where there is something 'special' required, such as a clever (but simple) envelope that you need for one of the effects, you are taken through how to construct it step-by-step in text and photos. There is a thoughtful text on the use of an 'out' which is not an 'out' in that it won't give you 100% cover, but will instead use the overall context of what you're doing to make your miss credible.

The descriptions are similar to the 'Book of Haunted Magic' in terms of being divided into performance, method, and 'remains', and are clear and easy to follow. The text is engagingly written, and the content has been professionally put together with due attention having been paid to the layout and grammar / spelling so as not to irritate those of us who care about such things.

As Rick Maue's toe-dip into the world of ebooks, this has very similar plus points to his 'Book of Haunted Magic' (which is excellent value for money for anyone who doesn't have it), in that it is well priced and with interesting and usable range of contents, well described. Good value for money, a good addition to the ebooks out there.
