I just bought Scott Creasey's 'My Q and A'

Of course it is a Q&A but I like this one because it seems so above board. This act will fit in your pockets so you will always be ready to go. The best part is the ending.

I have also bought 'Number 5' from him and really like it. It is a reading done on the back of your card or really anything as long as you can write on it. Simple and cool. I have done the reading and find that people really like it because they are involved in setting the reading up.

Let's us know what you think. As for the ending, this is really simply way to end big. Of course you are limited only by your imagination. Has it been done before? Yes, but I like the way it is constructive and flows. You do not go near anything once you start the routine.

I have worked through the routine and cannot find anything that I would change. It is smooth and flawless in design. The dirty is in your face and done in a blink of an eye. I like this because you don't need any clip boards or notepads. All your everyday props are used as they should be. There is no heat on anything because of the way the routine is made up.

Yes, this is a keeper.

Sounds good. I may have to get this. Scott's FIP has served me brilliantly for almost a decade.

Going to have to grab both #5 and My Q&A. While I haven't performed his "B*p book" in a while, I recall getting great reactions with that as well, and I'm looking forward to doing his "Tarot in your pocket." To me, it's an excellent blend of a routine plus readings, which is very much my thing.

While the principal is not new, I love the implemenation, and the bonus ideas for a reading and alternate handling are fantastic (my 2 cents).

The Corporate Mentalist is a well constructed act involving numbers. The main prop is a stack of number cards.

This is one slick process. I think it is as slick and progressive as his First Impressions Pad was (is). That's two big winners for me from Mr. Creasey. I'm impressed with how cleanly choreographed this is and I'd recommend this to anyone who is serious about doing or studying the Q&A presentation.

Bob Tripp's is best (and easiest) for me for a System approach, and Scott Creasey's would be best (for me) for a Method approach. This is really good thinking.

Thanks Ray, for the recommend, and I just picked up 'Number 5', also on your recommend.

I've got a lot to say about this one, though for now let me just echo the much deserved praise expressed by Tom and others in this thread.

As a long-time fan and avid supporter of ALL of Scott Creasey's work, I was quite excited to check this one out (and thanks to Ray's recommendation above, I also picked up "Number 5" and will comment more on both these releases when I have a little more time).

There's a lot to love about "My Q&A" and though our individual styles, criteria and personal approaches to Q&A are diametrically opposed in many ways, I'm a huge fan of the genre and do my best to consume just about everything released on the subject. To say that I was incredibly impressed with Scott's Q&A method, approach, structure and all the thinking behind and going into it would be a huge understatement. I highly recommend this ebook and for the menial asking price it really can't be beat. Speaking for myself only, I would have been happy paying 10X more for this phenomenal piece of work.

Not only is the structure, timing, framing, presentation, choreography, methodology, the expert use of subtlety, attention to detail, professional nuances and core effect exemplary in this case, it opens wide the doors to innumerable performance options, can be custom tailored for the performer, environment and attending audience - the foundational techniques are, by nature, highly applicable to other mind reading acts and hard-hitting routines of the same high class and caliber.

I'm actually very surprised there's not a WHOLE LOT more talk about the piece in question.

To touch very briefly on just a few specifics, I love that the "gimmick" in this case is not really a gimmick at all (using every day, EASILY AVAILABLE items in sneaky, subtle and spectacular ways)...also that it uses full size 3X5 sized index cards as opposed to smaller half-slips or unruly palm-sized billets, that the dirty work is done right out in the open and the reading process occurs in full sight of your viewing audience members and participants. While the mechanics are all perfectly hidden, there really isn't anything to "hide."

Scott developed the routine over several years and countless performances as an actual worker, which I respect above all else, and after reading the method and material a few times with the necessary items in and and giving it a formal test-run at my last home party, the results and reactions were far more than I myself was expecting or could have prepared for. While this will in no way, shape or form replace my own Q&A and preferred methods, if you're at all interested in this sort of act and demonstration as a whole, Scott Creasey's "My Q&A" is a definite no-brainer.

Complete with an interactive beginning, ultra-strong middle and memorable, powerful ending I don't feel ANY mentalist worker or psychic entertainer in this day and age would be anything less than ecstatic over their purchase - there's a whole lot of value here, the routine is complete, simple in execution, devastating in effect and would be a startling success in even the most inept hands. I highly, highly recommend this one and that you check it out immediately! Most of the items required I already had and a quick trip to the local office supply took care of that in less than 5 minutes.

Also based on Ray's review and recommend, I picked up "Number 5" as stated earlier and the more I think about it, the more I'm excited to put it through the trials and start using it in my own work (especially in unprepared, propless and impromptu situations). I've come up with what I hope and feel will be an effective and deeply moving experience which combines some rather clever marketing ploys and commercial tactics that, if all goes well, should boost just about anyone's readings' business exponentially.

To end, I'm a big fan of Scott as a person and his professional offerings as a gifted creator and performer (before these last two purchases I've owned multiple sets of his FIP and BIP BT, both items which I've kept close when needed and used for years now) and again, to piggy back on Jorgenson's spot on review, I'm stoked that Mr. Creasey continues to share his world class thinking, powerhouse routines and professional WORKING GRADE material with the mentalism community.

Now...I'm off to grab up the rest of his stuff and the few things of his I've obviously been missing.

Guys thank you very much for the praise.

Jerome, I really don't know what to say, your review has left me somewhat speechless.

Thanks again.

And today I noticed Scott just put a new one out on Lybrary called "Psi Lotto".

I really liked his Q and A book and have been considering getting some others. Just wish his descriptions were a little more informative.

J100taylor,

I take your comments on board, I'll make an effort to elaborate more with my next publication which I am working on as we speak. My problem is I always endeavour to make the props and handling of any effect I produce as simple as possible. Everything I have released I have used many times in performance and as far as my own act is concerned KISS is my mantra.

It is therefore often difficult for me to describe the effect in full without tipping the complete method or handling.

That said thanks for your comment, all constructive criticism is welcomed with open arms.

I see nothing wrong with Scott's descriptions of his routines. I find what he has written to be just the prefect blend of telling you what to expect without tipping anything. When I bought Scott's 'My Q&A' I knew it was a Q&A and that he had his own handling for it. That was all that I needed to know.

I think because many people (mostly kids) are use to asking and fishing for the hows and whats of a routine on these types of forums, that now some expect that the complete routine should be explained including what props are used. I am just happy with a small add explaining the bare bones of the routine. I am smart enough to know if it is something that I want without going into detail.



Scott, I find that your work are gems......

Ray - with over 30 years in magic I am not a kid nor am I fishing. For example John C and Experimentalist both gave me valuable feedback on what to expect from "The Corporate Mentalist" (which I am going to buy right now). The additional description they gave didn't reveal anything while adding enough info to understand what I was purchasing. I would appreciate similar info on "Psi Lotto" as well.

Scott - thanks for responding. I like the way you think. I am looking forward to your next release. Keep up the good work!

Yea, I went for "Psi Lotto" as well. Another winner. The cool thing about the CM too is that you can use the different parts independantly.
