Doug,

Kenton is the one who renamed double speak to dual reality.
He has some fine work on linguistics and word usage, and his Wonder Words publications are "THE" work on the subject.
He has other excellent works as well, Mindreading being one of them.

Wonder why he is quitting? Piracy? Wouldn't surprise me. Maybe this is a marketing strategy...

If you're not sure who Kenton Knepper is, ask Peter Turner. I understand some skepticism with the whole "going out of business sale" type of mentality as a marketing gimmick, but I highly doubt that is the case with Kenton.

Got to say that some of Kenton's works left me a bit underwhelmed. Completely Cold left me completely cold. I prefer the Osterlind and Cassidy approach - publish great stuff, and don't tell us it is the past, present and future of the art. I think it is the marketing that puts me off him. If this is a marketing stunt, as some think, then I am even less impressed.

And when I say the word "Hocus Pocus" you will forget that you ever met me... In fact, you will forget your own name... then when I say the word Hocus Pocus again you'll be able to remember everything again...

And now you remember everything cause I already said the word again. Smile

How you feeling? Smile

Not to take it too seriously, of course, but here was my line of thinking: First, I thought that Doug was joking also, and I don't mean that in a condescending way ("WHAAAAT? YOU don't know who KENTON IS?"). I also thought that perhaps if Doug was newer to mentalism (even though he appears to be an old fart like me Smile) that it was likely that he knew the likes of Peter Turner, since Peter is a bit more of the current generation of young mentalists who are popular. At the same time, I began to wonder if there were some others who genuinely didn't know who Kenton was, especially because they seemed so quick to be cynical, skeptical, or whatever. SOOO...

My brain signaled my fingers and I posted.

I'm just speaking in Kenton's defense somewhat, I suppose. Since he was a mentor to Peter, I am confident that Peter would speak in his defense as well. I don't know exactly why Kenton is doing this, and I really don't care or presume to know. He's doing it and that's that. Don't buy the stuff if you don't want it. No need to call his character into question, or presume his motives to be selfish, greedy, or whatever.

Kenton is indeed a man to watch in Mentalism. Sure, maybe some of his work was too controversial and personal, so it will not fit everyone, and that´s part of the nature of some thoughts, methods and ideas.

He is preparing other site with extra features. My recommendation is to check his site and get some of his work if you are interested. I always find value in his ideas and approaches, although looks like the site is already down.
