I don't see any reason that it couldn't be done in any language.


Woot! That's great to hear but I'm getting a little nervous. My copy hasn't arrived yet and now I want to get it translated into Latin in time to close my Papal Investiture!

Over the years, being where I am - I've kinda gotten used to waiting for anything I order from anywhere! Smile

How good is this?

Well I have cut a part of my show that I have been doing for
more than 10 years to replace it with NIX4!

It's great and it kills.
Can't wait fr the book to sell out to limit those doing it.

Can someone please attack this product already??? I want to take the plunge - but I know its true gold when someone starts badmouthing it in a way its clearly jealousy... hasn't happened yet...

Seriously - one question for the owners - is it so scripted that it would be hard to shift/change the presentation themes and angles to make it one's "own" so to speak... it sounds so well put together, lets say I wanted to present it as something darker... using for example, a sinister supercomputer M.E.D.I.U.M. or I want to make it more supernatural spirit like... can it be done? (I do that to everything I get anyway - but some things are more anti-deconstruction than others)... i.e. can one even take bits and pieces and place them into other acts and routines?

(I am assuming so - but hey, lets get it out! Also, I see a few Torontonians have already got it - so as I live here, if I get it I want to mask it into something looking very different than the original using the bones of the NIX)

You can (and should) use your own presentation.
And you could certainly choose 'modules' of method for new effects.

This I know - but was wondering how NIX is for doing so.

You can, you should... And it is a wonderful routine. And I am lucky: if I would or will do it there will be not many German speaking mentalists doing it or similar. For those knowing it: I love the alternative for using chairs, it opens up so nice options for a different play.
IMHO one of the best, if not the best work and writing of Paul until now. And I've all of them. Jan

Dr Spektor, I was chatting to PB yesterday and expressed my surprise that no-one has got the hump about it yet, quite a rarity!
Much of what gives the project its value is the extensive detail PB gives the presentation and scripting, the results of his own development, but there is nothing stopping you from stripping this presentation right down and rebuilding the effect from the ground up in whatever premise you desire. If you follow the path outlined in the core script you can colour it with whatever theme you want and still hit all the beats. It is flexible in that regard I believe.

Jan, I know what you mean about the alternative, when Paul mentioned that I actually liked it more, I think it would suit me better and it opens up some new approaches. (Dr S: see? Flexible!)

Just to clarify, although I was involved in the development of the book I've been paid and don't profit from it in any way.

About half-way through it...but whenever I read anything by PB...I'm always a bit underwhelmed at first...until I read it again...and then I'm yelling out loud "you devious bastage!" Smile

Thank you, Paul!
