Deconstructing Mentalism: Behind the Scenes with Doctor Crow - with David Abbot, Ted Annemann, Henry Slade, and other long dead Mind Readers Mediums, and Psychic Entertainers

[Classic sealed envelope and billet routines, message reading and the question answering act, analyzed, deconstructed, redesigned and routined for the 21st Century Mentalist.]

The "hype": The first edition is in eBook form. There will be no pre-orders. It is not a "limited release" and will cost less than $30.00. To keep it out of the hands of the idly curious, YouTube "tutors," and those who have an aversion to reading, thinking, original scripting and practicing, there will be no videos or video trailers of the contents. No complimentary "review copies" will be issued, and the main ad blurb will be the table of contents. (I may however, include endorsements from long dead mind readers, psychics and mediums who've never read the book but whose spirits popped in from time to time while I was writing it.)

Also, it's NOT the closest thing ever to real mind reading, nor will it enable you to start your own religion.

Other than that, it's probably the best thing I've ever written.

Bob doesn't need to go into the crazy marketing ploys to sell his works. They stand on their own.

Thanks for the nice comments.

For those who asked earlier: The book will be released through Jheff's Marketplace of the Mind. I anticipate that it will be ready to go within the next 5 to 7 days. But since this past Sunday I've been writing nearly fifteen hours a day, So it may be sooner if I can keep it up.

The order link will appear only when the eBook is ready for immediate download. I will post the link here. No need to reserve a copy because, well, it's an eBook.

The table of contents will appear in the official ad. But I've received a few questions that I'll answer here:

Question 1- "Does the book contain old material and, if so, how much of it is old?

Question 2- "Does the book contain new material and, if so, how much of it is new?

Question 3- "Today is April Fools Day. Does that mean either: a) that there is no book, or b) that we only have your word that there is a book because purchasers will have to sign non-disclosure agreements which will prohibit them from even acknowledging that they've seen it, let along purchased or read it?"

ANSWERS:

Question 1- Yes, ALL of the material is old.

Question 2- Yes, ALL of the material is new.

Both of the above are correct. When you put new windows in a house, it's still the same house but the view is different- from both the outside looking in and the inside looking out.

Question 3- No, the announcement was not an April Fool's prank and all purchasers are free to discuss the book's themes, ideas, methods and routines with anyone they choose. I trust that their good discretion will result in discussions of specific methods being restricted to Inner Thoughts or other private forums that are not readable or searchable by the general public.

There WAS, however, one small April Fool's Day prank in my announcement, but it was just a little one involving the price.

It's actually $1500. Smile











Only kidding.

I actually only logged on to see if Dynamike was going to discuss his upcoming personal performance for the president, but...

This sounds absolutely wonderful, I am thrilled! Smile

I will only buy it if there's a performance video of you on the street, holding a folded billet in your hand and proclaiming "You drew a house" resulting in five people running away from you as fast as they can screaming "NO WAY!!!!!!" , with one of them so freaked out, they run into the street and get hit by oncoming traffic.
