What I feel is a phenomenal aspect of this preorder... not only are we getting a real book once they come from press, in the meantime, we have received an ebook of The Trojan Horse and a wonderful facebook group with many thoughts and ideas...
I guess you can say that we have an ebook in hand, a group at our fingertips, and a book in our pocket. Smile

The only frustrating thing with this approach is that so many of the Facebook ideas would really have enhanced the physical book. I wonder if there is a model where you could buy the product, receive the ebook version, and then receive a physical book version at a later date with all the extra ideas included?

I much prefer reading and learning from (and more importantly-re-reading and re-learning from )physical books but in this case the book won't contain some of my favourite ideas, such as Michael's truth/lies game premise. So in years to come I can't just grab it off the shelf and get the full benefit of it.

Just placed my order and am waiting for the e-book 😇
Perhaps at a certain point, valuable ideas could be bundled into a pdf so we could print it out ourselves.

Not a bad idea at all. I'd be happy to upgrade to a V2 of the book containing the bonus content.

Bietfriek, I hope that you are enjoying the contents of the book Smile

Martin, there always is a solution for every problem and whilst I generally use Facebook groups as a way of rewarding ethical purchasers of my products (by filming or writing additional content that isn’t as easily shared around) I would certainly consider making a companion book available for a small fee to existing owners further down the line).

Naturally, just as I did with Deadlock these ideas would be made available for free in pdf form too as you would need the original book to know the methods used. Incidentally I still need to finish the second companion book for Deadlock owners too but I digress).

Sadly we are in a world where information is so easily shared, in the instance of this product it only took 24 hours for this to happen. Thankfully my efforts in marking each digital copy have paid off and I have made contact with the guilty party (a working performer) and I have a second call with my legal advisor next week who has offered me some great advice on taking this further.

The time has come for people who share material to realise that they aren’t just sharing a single manuscript, they are depriving creators of thousands of pounds in lost revenue. In my eyes these companies amount to nothing more than organised crime and individuals who are caught in the act will pay for their crime accordingly and this is no idle threat.

Thankfully those that respect the work of others will also be rewarded for their ethics with additional content which is worth more than the initial entry price alone.

Best Wishes to All!

I’m really content with it! Passed the girlfriend test so that’s a big plus! At the moment I’ve only read Manos piece, will dig into the rest later today. Also curious what the FB group has to offer, awaiting approval 😉

Excellent news about catching the thief! Well done Michael.

Please name and shame them when and if it's appropriate to do so.

That's quite shocking...a working performer especially. He (assuming it's a "he") knows the amount of work it takes to create smth like this and the damage he does... .
Please check regularly if you are becoming the type of magician Jerry Seinfeld jokes about. (This applies to mentalists as well.)

Do a Café public service and let us know who it is if possible

Public shaming will be a massive deterrent for those considering or involved in this type of thing.

Doric, people who profit from the intellectual property of others have no shame.
A proper lawsuit that will hit them hard on what they care the most about is more appropriate. Ideally this can serve as an example to prevent others from doing the same in the future. Smile

Rather ironically I am bound by customer confidentiality but this won’t be affecting my pursuit of this individual as soon as my legal advisor has instructed me on the correct path to take. After our initial talks it looks like there are several routes that I can go with this. have a follow up call this week and will then be taking action under his direction.

Bietfriek, I hope that you enjoy the rest of the book just as much Smile

The hybrid version Manos and Michael just added to the group is sooooo darn good.

If you haven’t boarded the Trojan Horse yet, now is the time because the add-on’s are really raising the value on the project!
