Nice review. Calling a spade a spade. I don't buy anything from anyone that would call themselves a student of Kenton Knepper. Just overpriced, barely working fishing tripe. Wasted too much money on these products praised by "celebrity" shills, like Peter Turner.

I like your recommendations section. Recommending basic mentalism tenets over costly products is a good sign. I will watch more of your videos from now.

I'm a big fan of Unbiased Magic Reviews and I agree with this being a nice review.

I've been there, thinking very similar thoughts. That was probably... I don't know... 18 years ago? Maybe a few less? So I'll share a few of my personal learnings since then.

While I may not agree or want to use many of the approaches from the "Kenton School", there are some things that I have absolutely incorporated, and some of them took more than a decade for me to understand that I should incorporate. This is beyond Wonder Words, by the way, which I immediately started incorporating into my scripts.

As for Kenton's students, I tend to agree as well, there are several whose releases are... not my cup of tea. To be fair, I wasn't the biggest fan of the first Luke Jermay's work that was released through Kenton at the time either. Also, and this is JUST ME, not a big fan of Pablo Amira's work, despite him seeming like just a great dude.

All that said, I think some of their work is pretty good.

Good luck!

I'd be more than happy to be proven wrong about the Knepper acolytes. I'd love to find myself with a load of new routines and techniques. Please, I'd appreciate your recommendations.

I think of it more as: I find little nuggets that I missed previously (either because the other stuff wasn't... goood or because it didn't make sense at the time or I needed more experience). I'll see if I have time to look and give you some specifics. That may be difficult as I am getting the Mythology Codex today (it's on a UPS truck, yay!) and the Thinking of You book later this week, so my time may be spent going through new stuff for myself rather than old stuff for someone else ;-).
