The MagicSeen Magazine ( http:/www.magicseen.co.uk ) has just reviewed Legion for their issue 57 (July 14)!

http://www.magic.forgecom.info/BackIss57.htm

I've summed up the most important parts of the review to show it to those still interested in getting it:

LEGION - Andreu

Available from: http://www.alakazam.co.uk/product-LEGION-by-Andreu-PDF.html
Price: 29.99 pounds

This 39 page E-Book offers you a practical method for name divination.

In essence what this means is that you can reveal any name that a spectator thinks of without the need for excessive fishing for clues. It can be performed over the telephone or on stage. Names are powerful things and so showing the ability to reveal a name that a spectator has merely thought of and not even written down, sounds pretty impressive.

OK, before you start to have visions of starting a new religious cult with this, if you are fresh to this type of idea you need to realise a couple of things.

Firstly, in order for you to get to the name, the spectator will be required to convert their thought of name into a number. This is done by using a simple chart which can be looked up on the internet if they are able to, or by you providing a copy of the chart. This is your starting point for working out the chosen name.

Secondly, for this to be convincing, the performer needs to be able to add in some Numerology readings, apparently using the numbers to reveal personality traits of the thought of person. A workable understanding of Numerology is very important for this, and might require someone new to
this area to put in as much, if not more, rehearsal time than will be required to master the name divination itself.

Name divination is not new, but what Andreu has tried to do is to remove some of the more obvious fishing aspects of the process and streamline the method so that you can get to the chosen name really fast.

His solution to this is practical and, once you understand the principles behind it, reasonably straightforward.

He claims that he can get 99.9% accuracy with this method and certainly I can imagine that in theory this is possible for anyone who is prepared to put in the necessary time to get up to speed with the idea.

In the right hands, and presented with the correct amount of panache and conviction, I can see this being a very strong performance piece. In the E-Book Andreu offers a number of different presentational angles, so you do get a choice of how to put this across. Selecting the one that fits you and your performance strengths will decide how effective this comes across to your audiences.

WHAT'S HOT: a very practical system with little or no memory work and without unnecessary ‘fishing’ for clues

WHAT'S NOT: is more suited to confident, experienced performers who are able to carry off the Numerology slant required in the presentation

**** (4 out of 5 Stars)

Best regards,


Andreu.
