Just received my book today--
Who was your graphic designer in this, Sean? Very nicely put together, between you, Iain and Phill Smith you're definitely raising the bar.

I was one of the guys that got fooled so badly with your Brave New World... and it was great to see it in print-- but I'll have to wait until the weekend to give this a proper read.

Dang man. The material is not THAT secret.

Seriously, I am truly sorry if your copy was held up. I am glad that it is in the hands of (you,) the rightful owner.

Enjoy!

Meanwhile I've studied the book and even chatted with Sean about (my way of) tweaking some effects - believe me, it was a real pleasure to exchange ideas and to learn more about the genesis of certain routines!
So this little book is a real treasure chest, and although I can't find the time to review all single effects now (some of them are improved versions of existing SW routines, btw), it gets my full recommendation!

Hopefully there will be a second edition! Smile

My experience has been the same as Nicolino's.

I haven't had the time to put together a proper review of this yet, but I can't believe there hasn't been more buzz about this book.

Cards DO have a place in mentalism.

Here is over 100 pages that further proves it.

This is well-worth getting from Sean.

Couldn't have said it better. If you've ever doubted whether cards have a place in mentalism, READ THIS BOOK! Some fantastic routines here, and Sean is one of the nicest, most creative guys working today.

My thanks to each of you. I hope you are enjoying the book and that you find routines worthy of your personal use. Thank you for taking the time to comment. I know each of your lives are busy (too)!

Nicolino was kind enough to offer an excellent idea that had never occurred to me. In my color sensing routine, "Beyond Touch", a standard method is utilized that involves one-time preparation. He suggested replacing that method with a o_e-w_y deck. I mention this primarily because I just found out that the League Back Bicycle cards have this (subtle) feature. I bought a dozen online. Nonetheless, Nicolino's advice was sage and I thought this recent discovery (of knowledge) would aid those who are performing this routine. This eliminates any preparation.

Thanks Nicolino!

You're very welcome Sean! It is pleasure and honor to contribute a small part to your excellent work.

By the way, it should be noted, that also surprisingly many Bicycle decks offer this feature, depending on how precisely they had been cut during manufacturing.

BLATANT THREAD BUMPING POST:

I just wanted to mention that anyone who purchases "Tailored Suits" from me by Monday (when I am already going to the Post Office), will receive the AVALON AND BEYOND kit (PDF and secret things which would normally cost $25+ to have made) for my updated method for "Avalon" (my version of KK).

This is one of those pieces that will always be progressing, because it is theatrical and powerful. The method I am performing now allows anyone you to (always) know the color before any decisions seem to be made. ONE ENVELOPE is placed on a table in advance and the presentation begins. This is a previously undisclosed method (and the way I perform this now). Only those who purchase this during this deal will get this package (PDF and secret stuff) at no additional cost.

One another note, here are some comments made by our own Dreadnought after using some of the materials from the book in his show: http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......start=30

Any purchases this weekend will automatically receive the bonus package which I guarantee you will use.

END BLATANT THREAD BUMP

Thanks!

If I recall correctly, I ordered my copy of Tailored Suits on a Monday as well. Not sure if that qualifies...? Smile

Ha! You made me laugh out loud. Precision counts doesn't it?

Nonetheless, I should have mentioned that this PDF includes a technique that I am using (that can be applied to many routines), which will double the impact of the piece. I use this for my KK and for my "Forever Jung" (spectator as mind-reader) routines in particular. It psychologically primes the audience and your participant and insures that they will never forget what happens. This also greatly aids in compliance for those bolder methods (that sometimes make us quake). I promise.

Avalon 2011 is great... (even without what I can guess is included in this package) Tailored Suits continues to be one of the two most under-rated books this year. (the other being Iain Dunford's Profeign)

All,

I have a few ever-so-slightly "less than perfect" copies that, if you are interested, I can sell at a reduced rate. I had somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 or so that I would not call perfect. So, on either side of the big pond, I will sell these for $35 including shipping. If you have an inclination, simply PayPal to watersmind@gmail.com.

Please include the phrase "Scratch and Dent" in the comments!

Thanks,

Sean

This is a wonderful book, containing some great card material. Ideal for any mentalist wanting to add a card effect to their rep.

Great work Sean!

Tailored suits is an outstanding book with very well thought out routines. The one effect I made a beeline for was Cherchez three card monte, boy does this three phase routine rock with an absolute killer ending. In my opinion worth the price of the book alone.
Sean very kindley sent me a bonus pdf. Thank you Sean.
If you want to fool people badly then get this.
10 out of 10.
