Ok I ordered this to see I could actually learn to do some billet work. when I got the book......over 600 pages!!!!!!!!!!! are you kidding me? where in the known world of entertainment can you get a book this large for that small of a price?

this guy is seriously under pricing him self.

just from a quick glance he has left nothing out here.
I am looking forward to sitting down and reading this.

It is pretty much the billet-bible.
Ridiculously under-priced.

His ebook is underpriced as much as a lot of other ebooks are overpriced!

It can be overwhelming; I'm glad I started in the beginning so gradually built up to current length of the Switchcraft classic tome.

It is the best value in mentalism. An idea from the last update is worth the price of the ebook, which is cheaper than many books teaching this single technique.

And don't let the size overwhelm you. Sit down and just work on the first few techniques in the book. It's exciting -- billet work will open up a whole WORLD of miracles for you, and Elliot is one of the best guides available!

My end all goal is to carry nothing more then some paper and a sharpie to shows this one is going to help me realize that goal. I would have gladly paid twice what he asked and still felt I got a great deal.

Now if I could find a Q&A book that delivers as much as this one does I would be set.

I got this recently. The very first technique is worth the bill. I've got a one-handed switch I use, but one can never have too much knowledge.

Thank you so much, Michael, Mark, Stoltz, Tom, Stefmagic, Bill, John, Seth, Atlas, C.J. and magicduro.

John, I am 95% certain I know which idea you referred to. It’s one that I use all the time, and effectively removes a certain risk from a lot of billet techniques.

C.J. – That’s a great photo!

There are also some nice fun routines for the festive season in Switchcraft, requiring only the minimal setup of having some card stock and a writing implement on you Smile

I love Swtichcraft, and keep going back to it every so often. It's amazing the things one can perform armed with just billets.

This is the most underpriced item in magic. The best part is, you could study this thing forever and still learn from it every day.

Best value indeed, I love this book!

Anyone want to list their favorite sections or routines? Not sure if that has already been discussed, the other thread is almost as long as Switchcraft!

I frequently use:

1.) Pusillanimous Billet Read

2.) A Perfect Prediction

3.) The various clip switches

4.) Premonition Envelope
