Although I have absolutely no way of knowing---using my mindreading powers I will say "YES"

Sorry for being absent! SO busy with http://www.magicfest.co.uk at the moment!!

Paul has sent me the new book and it's honestly looking incredible!! I'm VERY proud of the product, not just the principle, but now the look of the book too!

I think you guys are going to be very happy with it!

The fact we are getting close to selling out is awesome and I have the greatest respect for everyone trusting us enough to purchase this!

Much love!
Col.

Yes, any signifigance to the title of the book? Does that hint the method at all? Where did the title come from? (i apologize if this has already been mentioned, but I just scrolled thru 9 pages of messages)

The first thing that came to my mind when I read about this effect was Andrew Mayne's Social Distortion. It was described as a similar plot and after thinking about it, I did feel that the use of the prop in Mayne's routine should have been mentioned in the ad. It's still a good trick, but I think the prop should have been mentioned in the ad.

The effect should have read something like "after showing a bunch of blank business cards very cleanly on both sides, the spectator is asked to concentrate on one of the blank cards. After visualizing the magician is able to pluck random thoughts from the spectators mind. At the end of the effect the audience is clueless and of course the blank business cards are totally examinable"....---However, if you google any magic shop that sells this trick, you will see that the ad mentions NOTHING of the blank business cards used. I felt something of this magnitude should have definitely been mentioned. Audiences are smart. I, myself, am always out to fool the smartest person. I don't want my audiences applauding because I was clever. I want them applauding because they think they've seen real magic, and are of course having a good time. Never underestimate the intelligence of your audience. In Mayne's effect I do believe they'll all be fooled, but some of the smarter people will be thinking "ok that was cool, but obviously he somehow sneakily showed him something written on the card"...they'll applaud, but only because I was clever...not because they think they saw real magic. I hope that makes sense.

I'm a bit nervous that "This way up" uses something similiar to Mayne's trick, which isn't being divulged on the effect description. There have already been hints that there is "something" used, which isn't' being mentioned. I just hope the magnitude of this isn't as big as the the business cards in Mayne's trick for example. I was disappointed this wasn't mentioned in the ad.

Ok guys, boxers or briefs? Do you sleep on the left or right side of the bed? And the door frame, what's wrong with it? Inquiring minds need further information to make a truly informed decision here.

@ false shuffel

I suggest you to write colin a pm.
I am sure he will respond before you finished typing your question. Smile

Regarding "Any significance to the title of this book?"

"fishing" or "further information to make a truly informed decision" well it depends on someones perspective.

Iam looking forward to my copy!

All Best

I think it's a sexual thing. And it's also a misprint as there was meant to be a question mark in the title.
Something that's always puzzled these two fine yet innocent lads. Paul even went and got himself married in the search for this particular Grail.

I am not sure that I trust either of you.

I PM'd Colin as suggested. He won't budge on anything lol. I don't totally agree with that. The knowledge of what the "prop" is helps determine how clean the effect looks. And that is important to me. Even though the effect is the same either way.
