I am sorry but I have a hard time making the gimmick for Colins version. I think the description in the book is incomplete. Did anyone had the same problem? or it is just me.

I had no problem to making the gimmick of colin version but with the brook's version , yes.
I think also there's a problem in the description, Paul writes it in English and I'm not native of U.K
Besides the pictures are in black and whites and I have some problem with my eyes I can't see well then it's not in color.
Joaquin, I know what I tell you will be hard to hear but YES, it's just you Smile
The mechanism is so basics I suspect you to be totally new in the field of magic in general.
I think this book is the moszt detailled book about how make the gimmick !
Joaquin you worry me. lol
How old are you?

Parmenion I am not new. I am probably older than you. I have been studying magic for 8 years. Thanks for asking. IN fact I think I meet you in a coin magic seminar in PA with David Roth about 4 or 5 year ago

Without trying to expose to much information, Colins version can be applied to three people at the same time with one single you know what correct. If you read through his whole section and especially the chapter of "construction" nothing is mentioned about how to make the (you know what) for three people. He only mentions how to make it for one person as Pauls.

According to his perfomance the same you know what can be used for three people. Please tell me in which page of the book he describes how to make it for three???

I would appreciate your feedback

You must have misunderstood the whole concept. You should read it again, and please discuss further in Paul's forum.

I have never been in any coin magic seminar Smile
Anyway, you should re-read the book...All is explain.
I'm sorry to say what you wrote show you're far to be exprienced in magic or mentalism.
What did you do during these 8 years?
If you're French doesn't understand is normal otherwise you should worries a little bit.

You are right is it my native language having a hard time understanding pure British English or it might be my brain. Getting old is not easy.

I apologize

The psychology behind it is very strong, this effect is now always with me as I find it perfect for any situation or enviroment.

The gimmick is genious, the effect is very direct, they think of a memory and you reveal it in a beautiful way.

It is super practical, direct and very strong.

In my opinion the price is very fair.

Every morning I load in my pockets a stack of business cards, my peek wallet, a pocket dictionary and TWU gimmick.

I guess I agree with 50% of what you say. As far as the gimmick being "genious" well I'd say when it was first conceived years ago it was a clever concept, but used in this case, well!!! The strongest part of the book for me was definately the routineing.

Well this didn't live up to the hype. I can see why the gimmick was questioned early in the piece. It was hardly genious, in fact it has been used in many many other ways. I wont go further as it will reveal what it is. The only difference is that you had to make it yourself. I would have been happier if they included a professionally produced gimmick. Am I disappointed with the price..... not at all. I believe sooo much mentalism is way under value. And purchasing this has certainly made me wiser, even if that wisdom learnt is more about advertisement. My main disappointment is with myself for falling for the hype. Is this directed at Paul or Colin, no, they just sold the sizzle. We on this thread created the hype. So much said before anyone even got the product. If one comes to the Café to look at getting information for making informed decisions on purchases remember it can also be used to mis-inform you.
All in all, this was OK. not earth shattering, just OK, and if anything, has got me thinking on how to improve on it. Of course this is just my opinion which comes from where I am, in knowledge and performing mentalism. For someone else, this could be a quantum leap, especially if you haven't studied the classics.

I have studied the classics, and I think that TWU is beautiful.

What makes this for me such a valuable book is the psychology behind Paul's routine.

I had some conversations with some of the best in our field and we agree that this is our best purchase this year, we know that the principle behind the gimmick is not new, but the application is new, I have been using Paul's routine daily.

There is one chapter by Paul Brook that for me is worth the price of the book.

I respect everyones opinion and I understand your point of view takeachance.

As you are a dealer of mentalism and offer Whisper on your site J.Prager, while you're on-line, can I ask you, how you compare Whisper, which mentions Colin as a contributer, to Colin's input in TWU of spectator reads one mind on page 171. I found this, well to be honest, lacking. Does kennedy take this to another level.
