Review: The Three Types by Luke Jermay from http://www.amirasideas.com




Time ago I get this book because I love Luke´s ideas about suggestion. This sounds like a real interesting concept, but sadly I felt bad for the
approach of this "Q&A".

My opinion:

First of all, this isn't a Q&A, rather a mindreading act. There´s a lot of difference there.


The book is nicely made and the props that you get are nicely produce. I cant use it because they are in english and I performr for spanish-talking audiences.

I don't like this approach for a few reasons. This effect really look like a magazine test like Cosmopolitan. The type of question are weird and sound like trivial informations.
The idea behind this is to make the "billets invisible". Is a nice concept but for me the real invisibly of billets doesn't comes from this and this is confirmed by the work of the Amazing Kreskin. He uses the classical Dunninger`s method to achieve his Q&A act. Is bold and is good because Kreskin isn't just divine the content of the billets, but much more. In that subtlety I think that relies the power of invisible billets, not in cover Magazine Test.
Besides that, I don't think that anyone in the world is comfortable to share with an audience when it was his/her last sexual relation.


If you want solid information about Mindreading acts or REAL Q&A`s ( for me one of the best demonstrations in Mentalism) check the work of John Riggs, Dunninger, Richard Osterlind, Banachek and Iain Dunford.


Rate: 5/10

I don't like this effect, but a few ideas can be expanded for your own creations.
