Short answer - you can't.
Despite the best efforts of powerful organizations with no shortage of resources (music & film industries as an example), it's nearly impossible to stop the illegal and immoral actions of one person.
That said, it would seem counter-productive that someone would buy the book only to scan and post its contents for the sole purpose of proving their own sociopathy.

Don't forget to watch the clip of David Blaine doing the trick. There's a link to it on the Q and A section of the website.

I'm bringing this up because when I posted years ago about Nate doing this in my house under seemingly challenge conditions almost nobody believed me. Blaine is doing the same version Nate did for me in my Dining Room. So this is my big chance to say "told ya!":)

Also, the book is about more than just this trick. It uses the effect to communicate a larger message about crafting reputation making miracles.

With regard to assistants, it's made very clear in the advertising that "You will need some help at some point in the process"; whether one calls this helper an "assistant" or not is a matter of semantics.

I'll have to say that I wouldn't buy this based on the video, as it was quite obvious to me how it was accomplished (there are a few significant clues). So, for me, it would be a question of how much value was added by the "other methods" that are implied but not demonstrated.

I did enjoy the presentation: very well suited to the audience.


Enough said. However, I would add, I've been doing a lottery prediction effect for over a year now, minus the printed ticket variety, and it plays very well.

Good luck to all purchasers, I hope it inspires you to "different thinking"!

If you ordered Nates book an hour after it went live I think it may be you who will be writing the first review:)

There is really no point to review the book because it's limited edition, but it's amazing. It was above my expectations. For those of you that get the book...when you get to the "Houdini would have done it" page in Section 4...it's basically a Magician's Orgasm. That's all I'm gonna say Smile Who agrees?

Russell Davidson, act a little more mature please. You know where I was coming from.

I have not received mine yet, but Nate is an amazing guy. If you haven't done so already, I recommend you see this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVx09vyYX9M

You will realize just how deep of a thinker Nate is, not only with respect to magic, but also with respect to life. His genius is being shared with 150 other individuals through this book, and let's be thankful to him for sharing his effect so that we, as serious performers, can continue to AMAZE (not fool, not impress, not confuse) our audiences.

Regards,
Mike

Actually I don't. Please explain why you think most people don't know what a lottery ticket looks like? That's what you've written.

My partner got this for us to put in our act & I think it's brilliant.

To those who think they have have it figured out from the video, I seriously doubt it.

This is going to kill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have read it for the first time and ready to comment. First, I will not discuss specifics. This is a high priced limited edition. Part of what I paid for is exclusivity. I really don't want to "advertise" specfics. I hope others who purchase feel the same way. Ok, now that that is out of the way---I am very happy with my purchase. First and foremost, Nate has changed my way of thinking. It is actually very very inspiring. I can't say that about many books I have purchased. The first time I saw Nate perform the Lottery Illusion, it also had a profound effect on me. The book is everything I hoped it to be. I am getting ready to reread it. Thanks Nate.

Russell Davidson, numbers on a lottery ticket are arranged from smallest to largest, almost always. In the video on the website, the numbers are arranged in the order called. The audience reaction is huge and no one cares, or notices, or both. Isn't that point enough? Many other differences also.
