@magicman if you have genuinely learnt the effect and all of the ideas in the book then its very very unusual to have a spectator that it wont work on. If it doesn't its normally due to performer error, or the spectator being to drunk and not listening.

Alright, I just placed my order.
(What's the expected delivery date? I couldn't find the info on the site.)

I'll enjoy it anyway, but is it possible to repeat the effect with the same spectator, or will he "catch on" upon subsequent performances?

@kieran any time mate Smile
@gorecki its very easy to use a small time delay in-between when you get the information and the reveal it. if that's done correctly then yes theres no reason why it cant be repeated as many times as you like.

This book is awesome, and so are the methods in it. Methods will require some practice, but it's very worthwhile because this allows for very clean mind read without anything written down or forced, and methods in here are not limited only to playing cards reveals. Once you get them down you can use them for pretty much anything. Thanks for this awesome book Ben. Looking forward to seeing more from you.

all the best,
Marko

Thanks for the answers, Ben.
But you missed one of my questions, so I'll repeat here. Smile

What is the expected delivery date for the book?

Sorry I missed your question @Gorecki the Standard postal time to america is normally 5 days to a week singapore is as much a 2 weeks everywhere else should be faster. I'm incredibly busy for the next few weeks, ill try to post orders as often as I can but I don't think I will have a chance until next monday or tuesday. Im really sorry to keep people waiting but that's the price I have to pay for running all of this by myself while ive got so much on.

Do I get a free bag on Monster Munch with it for being suave & British? Smile

Is this more of an intimate close-up piece or could it be used during, say a wedding whilst performing and mingling. I know its essential to have different effects for different situations. Just want to know which this is most suited to??

I think could be used in any situation- close up, parlor or stage!

@Ben Oh, ok: I thought the book hadn't been printed yet. Hence my question about delivery delays. If it's just the actual shipping, I have a rough idea of how long it should take. Smile
Thanks!

@bond19 just to confirm what @RNK has said: Im yet to come across a situation COG cant be used effectively in. As I think I said above the only real limiting factors are performer error, drunk spectators, or spectators that cant hear whats being said. So if you work clubs or very loud weddings/events then it will be a bit harder to perform but if you understand everything in the book and had the practice then it should still play extremely well.

@Gorecki once you've received the email saying that COG has been dispatched it should be within the time frames in my previous post.

I'm curious to what the thoughts are of this in comparison to Rus Andrews's Spoken which wasn't that well received? I love the "Think a Card" plot and am on the fence already in making the leap given the additional international expense. I'm curious if the "work" referred to by several is regarding... hmm external work (like AKA and Spoken) or internal (like Isabella Star) by the performer?

Also Ben, if I do make the leap on Friday will I have missed the boat already? (Payday is Friday for me)

@alwow as I'm unfamiliar with Rus Andrews's Spoken I can't comment (perhaps someone who has purchased the book can help you out?), but if I understand you question correctly, the work which people are referring to is simply practicing the techniques in the book, they have a knack to them that takes some time to achieve (like any card or coin sleight). Of the two I would say it is more towards Isabella star (internal performer work) than Spoken, but as I said I have not read Spoken so I'm unsure. if that doesn't really answer your question then I think I am miss understanding what you are asking.
I don't think you will have missed the boat by waiting until friday.
Hope that answered your questions

Ok so after hitting the buy now button on my PayPal I wait a few days. On Tuesday a small package drops through the door and I'm thinking surely this can't be it.

I tear open the package to find a small but very attractive looking book. Putting temptation to one side I drop it by my bedside for later viewing.

Having had an inkling as to the core method of this I was keen to read how this would be employed within the context of the routine.

I'm happy to report that the saying is true "great things do come in small packages". This book is well laid out and nicely written.

Ben does a great job at explaining the methodology which makes this work and each part fits together well.

Although I have used techniques like this in the past I'm very keen to adopt Bens thinking and will report back on how this plays.

I also like that Ben goes in depth on how to handle things should you fail to pull this off. This sets the reader at ease and will allow you to try the techniques risk free whilst you are learn the ropes.

What I like most about this is the versatility of the techniques at play. Although a coin routine is suggested there are countless applications for the tool you learn and I believe that is where the true value is.

I already have some applications in mind for use with some of my own principles too.

I'm happy with my purchase and am pleased to say I recommend it! Smile

Oh and Ben the discovery of my name at the back of the book was a very pleasant surprise too!

I received my copy of Cog a couple of days ago and am very impressed. It will take practice before being fully comfortable with it but once proficient in the method, the think a card plot is just a small part of what could be accomplished. Thanks Ben!

I have continued working on this and my hit rate has climbed and my misses are still impressive (i.e. 4 of clubs and I predict 4 of spades, etc) For me the key is spectator control---and with each performance, I have improved it.

I placed my order and I am excited about what Ben has to offer about this plot.
