Lots of cool ideas bundled together. Many I've paid MUCH more for similar methods. Very concisely explained. Easily accessible. I find material like this rewards "controlled improvisation" within the performance, and I'm a sucker for that. For 25 bucks, what more do you want? If it's a lot, there's not much more I can tell ya. Pick it up.

As others have mentioned, Jacob has taken many principles from some of the best in the field and brought them together in the form of a book test. I was familiar with all of the little subtleties and nuances from these creators but it was refreshing to see them used in this way. Definitely a "why didn't I think of that moment". Even if you aren't familiar with some of the techniques used in the method, it would be a great place to start learning as Jacob does a fine job giving references and additional foods for thought. This book test allows for multiple chances of hits which is better than "You're thinking of a word? Okay, your word is..." Overall, this is good material to spice up your book test as I know mine was lacking until now.

What I was most excited for in this release was the bonus Jacob was kind enough to include. I have been using iPhones for effects such as iCurveball by Oz Pearlman and Gallery by Marc Spelmann but the updated iOS limits Gallery and I've had a small problem with iCurveball's method (not going too deep but it's difficult to perform this under certain circumstances). Jacob's contribution allows you to reveal a thought of song, person or photo from someone's phone in the easiest and cleanest way possible. Another "Why didn't I think of that?!?". This has sparked my interest in bringing these effects back to my close up act thanks to this little idea. Much appreciated Jacob.

Totally worth the investment.
