Hi Uli,

Maybe it's better that way! Or as a part of a compilation such as Paul Romhany's.

Actually, to be honest, this has gotten some very mixed, extreme reviews.

Feedback about the downsides include me having left out teaching the verbal force, as well as the handling being too complicated for what it achieves. Some, on the other hand, have told me that the handling of the index cards is lovely, and that they've even started using it.

I believe that the way I write down the thoughts with the "right" names being visible is an important aspect of it, but (as Rod has mentioned in his post above) it may just be a personal goal.

I will get this out somehow as I still sincerely believe that there is value in this, and I really wish that many of you could see this! Smile

I feel like an idiot for taking so long to read the full manuscript, and I apologize for that. Life has suddenly gotten very busy for me.

In fact, I have a pile of Switchcraft supplements waiting to be written too, as well as other personal projects that have all taken a backseat to life at this time.

What I read of Epique so far looked good and was well taught, and not the same as other methods I am familiar with. If it is clean and does what it sets out to do, it should be great!

I guess everyone looks for something different when they read instructions for a trick. Personally, for an item like this, I could not care less about the presentation or forxxes provided with the instructions. I’ve got plenty of those already.

For me, this would be all about the method and how it compares to other methods in terms of deceptiveness, ease of execution, visibility etc.

I think you and I are on the same page concerning this.

If the methodology compares favorably to what is already out there, then - from my perspective - it is a winner.

After the 3Mentalist Podcast has brought this to my mind, it appears it has been put out now, and I like it. Bills comments above are very valuable to sort it into its history and prompt much further reading. Intriqueing.

Yes, Ken seems to be a big fan of this based on the latest 3Mentalists podcast. Would love to see it or learn more about it.

Not sure, but Nique performs constantly and is highly regarded by a number of professionals. I have no doubt that this routine has been worked in thoroughly. If memory serves, there are pictures of him working this routine in the book, so there may well be some video.

It is an excellent approach and has my approval. It is the best method I've seen to take this on to the stage,

Best,

Atlas
