Yes it does. J., you seem to be on a creative streak. I’ve still been wanting to try out your memo pad peek, but have not been able to find a suitable pad. Could you please provide a link for where I can get the pads online (preferably inexpensively) ?

Anyone get a review copy?

Probably a good idea to send a copy to Cassidy.

I'm looking forward to this. The releases I've purchased so far have been creative and, on the whole, useful in real world situations. Granted, I'd rather see a single substantive book than half a dozen $5 downloads, but that's becoming more and more uncommon.

Waiting the release, I use Riggs´s envelope from his dvd.

Maybe he realize that his idea isn't new at all.

Maybe... he did not send review copies.

Maybe... he is waiting for the response of some of the greatest minds in our field...

Maybe...

OK, I don't need to defend José: his creative output has already done this. However . . .

Some of us remember the controversy that surrounded José's debut effect. He took responsibility for his mistakes and promised to learn from them. Unlike some others, I believe he really meant what he said. That's why I think he's actually soliciting advice from some of the Masters of our art.

Disclosure: José is a friend but that wouldn't stop me from being critical of him or one of his effects. Like you, I've been burned too many times and by much more "established" names. I've talked with him and I know what he wants to do with this. Can he do it? I'm not sure but given his creative mind, if anyone can, he can.

Would I have preferred that he kept his mouth shut until everything was perfected. Yes. Should that enthusiasm be held against him. No. I love the enthusiasm of youth (or he enthusiasm of any age). When it's ready, if it's ready, it will be released. And if it is releaseed, it will be sensational. If it isn't, there will be something else from him and that is sensational.

I believe it was Bob Cassidy who remarked on this time in mentalism when we have a lot of creative people redefining a number of things (my poor paraphrase, not Bob's words). Let's all be supportive and enjoy the bounty!

My intention was not being aggressive or harsh, just the true. Let´s see what will happen.

I am really looking forward to this and was really asking a question.

I hope all goes well and we see this soon!

Hopefully he sent a review copy to Cassidy. If Cassidy likes it, I am all over it like a fat kid on a cake.

I was sent a review copy and, as obtaining information from within an envelope is one of my favourite effects, I was very interested to see this.

First of all I was surprised to see the preparation necessary for the envelope. This to my mind is thinking out of the box but I duly tried it and prepared a few envelopes.

I then played about with the handling and when I was ready tried the effect out on my wife, duly getting the information she had written on the card.

The effect is certainly clever. The envelope can be shown and handled freely but am not sure I would give it to a spectator. Also, as with most things, you will need to practice and get the effect and routine right for you. My feeling is that it may be best for design duplication.

Being fond of envelope effects, I'll certainly be using this - the strength being that the envelope can be handled and shown freely and my wife (a stern critic) did not see anything amiss.

I have also had the opportunity to review J's latest offering. While reading the preparation portion of the instructions, I had my doubts as to how this would work in practice. In theory, the construction (if you could call it that) of the envelope and methodology seemed pretty ingenious.

Having constructed my own envelope in under two minutes (very simple to create), I set out to see how it well it played in front of an audience. As expected, the reaction was very strong. Part of what adds to the strength of this method is the fact that the handling is so open and fair, as Neil points out above.

I may not be one of the greatest minds in our field, but I do know what I like...and I definitely like this. I see it finding a home in the repertoire of many performers.

Another wonderful job by Mr. Prager.

I Got a copy of this too!

INGENIOUS!!!!

I loved it !

I am already thinking on many routines that can be done with this envelope. The preparation is so EASY! Almost instant.
And the envelope offers you a clear and easy handling.

Best Thing I have seen from Prager!

Have just had chance to use this again and I appreciating the cleverness of it all the more. Handled well it is very clean and highly deceptive.
