Ok, got a bit of time...here's some thoughts...

what strikes me most profoundly about the book, are three things...

1) this is pure psychic entertainment
2) the key is "you"
3) the beautifully simple and interesting plots and ploys

and by buying this book, you have enough material to create at least complete acts if you really wanted to...

there's variety, there's pendulum work, cards, photos, envelopes, readings...just about every base is covered one way or the other...

I think the trap some of us fall into (i have in the past) is incubating ourselves and only mixing with other like-minded individuals... we forget how potent simplicity is...and this book is a masterclass in it really....

I have two "special boxes", one I keep the stuff I use regularly in (pads, envelopes, nefarious devices), and the other I keep my most treasured little artifacts in, keepsakes from people I have met, and copies of books I love and always go back to...both the black and white books are in there...right next to a lovely peacock patterned tarot bag and some al baker booklets...

love both books, and have invigorated me a great deal...thank you mr scryer and webster..

Lucky lotto is my favorite idea in the book at the moment.
I no longer smoke camel cigarettes.

Just to add my voice to the chorus of praise for both the black book and the white book. Both wonderful and have pride of place in my collection.

I have nothing but praise for the work in both the black and white books however Michael Weber's idea is unbelievable. The best part about it is it can easily adapt within Neal's established routines.

I'm going to start my third read through tonight...too many good ideas in the books to decide on what I want to add at the moment...

Does anybody know if any dealer has unsold copies of the Black version? I want to try and get hold of a copy, but there is no sign of it on ebay/magicweek. Any pointers are gratefully received.

Got my White book... yay! Smile
I see a lot of stuff that looks perfect for me.

I would like to discuss one topic, about the first chapter in the white book and the first two chapters in the black book, with anyone who is willing. Especially those who present, perform and/or read as actual psychics (which is presumably a lot of us here).
I have one small hang-up that is partially answered in white book, but I'd like to discuss it with someone.
If you'd be interested in sharing and discussing some thoughts on this please PM me.

Thanks

Stevensmagic.com did have the last copy of the black book early last week but I do not know if they still have it.
I know that Doug Dyments deceptionary has no more copies.

Worth checking Stevens magic.

Regards

After many disappointing trips to the mailbox my copy arrived yesterday. I only made it the short way to Michael Weber's contribution. That excellent idea was enough for me to set the book down and experiment for the rest of the night.

Both books are outstanding! The Black Book helped take my readings and interactions with people to a whole new level while improving the overall experience for my sitters. After reading the White Book, I am excited to start using some of the ideas and see what new directions that takes me. Thank you to Neal and Richard for gifting readers and mentalists with these two gems!

Hmmm this entire thread belongs in inner thoughts - letting anyone know about these books who isn't realli into the art is almost a sacrilege

On the other hand - those not into it who get it won't understand and think it's crap

Ah a true magical tome series Smile

A copy just sold here in the last half hour. In the immortal words of David Lee Roth, everybody wants some.

By the way, Sir. Mind Reader is the most hardcore screen name I've seen from a new member for awhile. Bam!
The secret of deception is in making the truth seem ridiculous.

Mike - Now I'm worried, screen names only become more laughable as they become more hardcore!
