this is the question that is holding me back. I don't think its an unreasonable question to ask.


Exactly! I'd hate to have to buy an elephant just to perform a silly trick.

My order is in, both Colin and Paul have proven their credentials time and time again through their previous offerings.

I don't think for one moment that either would sacrifice their hard earned reputations on a release of such stature, the fact that both have publicly stated that this is their most prized offering to date is a testament to this fact.

For those on the fence why not consider buying one of their cheaper items first? you will then know wether their material sits well with you. If your already a fan then no further questioning is necessary.

Please remember two things, firstly no one is forcing anyone to buy and secondly they aren't going to tip the method without you buying this so if in doubt just hold off until the reviews are in...but then again it may be too late Smile
As a mentalist you must always ask yourself what if! And throughout your life you should seek to ask and answer this question over and over again, only then will your wildest dreams become a reality!

Some of you guys asking about 'props' might want to take a look at what Colin wrote, about six message above this one.

You know, sometimes it really pays to read the actually lines written rather than read between them. I'm just sayin' Smile

Lol, no, genuine psychic ability for only £130... Bloody bargain! Smile

I hope the 'prop' if you wan to call it that, is one of the easiest things you'll ever use. Once you've mastered that (10 seconds of practice?!) You can then focus on the presentation, subtlties and designing your own specific routine to fit your requirements! (That bit will take longer than 10 seconds... Sorry! Smile )

Well I bought it,
these were the lines that pulled me in

Also, there is no cueing as in some of Paul & Colin's routines using dual reality where one spectator sees something that everyone else doesn't. This is not the case here! Everyone is aware of everything that is going on and the process is all done openly.

I was meaning to write this post for a while now. This is not about "This way up" but it is about the credentials of Paul Brook. Colin Mcleod released a brilliant DVD that any serious mentalist can take from, suffice to report, Colin knows his stuff. It is Paul Brook that I can report on with more authority. You see, I signed up for his Mind Reading Course a couple of months ago & already this man has transformed my thinking! I have come from a situation whereby I was nervous of approaching strangers to perform effects, to a reality now where I welcome it, to the point where I have to restrain myself!! This is a man who knows his subject way beyond most of his peers and if anyone on this forum thinks he would "try make a fast buck" or put his name to another regurgitated effect, is sadly wrong. I know nothing more about this effect other than Paul Brook is the "Real Deal". Anyone reading this who is coming from a viewpoint of "How do I take the next step to further my career/hobby" should do themselves a favour and check out paul's website NB: I have no affiliation to Paul Brook or Colin Mcleod, except enjoying Colin's DVD and really benefitting thus far from Paul Brook's excellent mentoring.

Good enough. I can't begin to think that ANYONE who has posted to the Café more than ... say, three times, has any equivocation on the skills or credentials of Paul or Colin. If you do, ask them! Smile

In all serious-ness. I trust the book will be a HUGE success!!

Yes, we have been having a silly amount of questions coming in regarding this effect.

I would say this, that most of the questions that we are getting, can already be answered by reading through this thread.

Other than:

a) "Can this be done in any language?"

and

b) "When will you be shipping this?"

and

c) "Will the package be recorded/tracked?"


The answers to those questions are:

a) "Yes"

and

b) "We are aiming for the first week of July."

and

c) "Yes, we will send every package signed for and tracked."


Hope that helps Smile

Cheers,

-Paul

I ordered it the minute I received their email with their newsletter. No questions at all to any of them. I know who they are through their previous work and I truly trust them.

Every time we buy magic from other creators we are pretty much trusting what they say or show. It does not matter if they put up a fancy video demo or not. Our trust is based on their reputation as creators of previous effects. Colin and Paul make a living from this art and both are putting their name and their word on this book. This is enough for me to trust and believe on what they say.

I was on the fence when I first read this thread,as to weather I should order it or not.
But having ordered Colins and Pauls material before let me tell you their stuff kills fullstop.
This effect has been their bread and butter for years,and I am so glad they are finally releasing it,thank you so much lads.
I performed one of Colins effects from his Opening Minds DVD on stage to 50 plus magicians and not one of them had a clue how it was done, it was one of the best reactions I have ever received.
You can guarantee that this latest effect is going to be the dogs bo**ocks.
