Let me add to the praises of this ebook. I really like it, particularly the diary effect and Adam's Prediction.

Re. Adam's Prediction, Greg says, "...This is cute. Not mind-blowing, but very cute...not the deepest mystery..." Greg, you've lost your friggin mind, this is great!!!!! It's incredibly entertaining, along the lines of Cereal Killer for those who know that effect, but it's even more "logical" or motivated and has an incredibly magical ending. This one's a keeper!

Greg -

I emailed you with a different email address other than the one connected with my Paypal account. I don't know why it won't download, so I'll blame AOL. Smile

Larry - thanks for looking out for me.

Bev - your next on my purchase list.

Thanks, Larry. I guess I say that about Adam's Prediction because some of the guy's see it more as mental magic instead of deep mentalism. But don't get confused and think I don't like it... I do. I guess I just gave it a value judgement due to the other effects it was surrounded by.
Actually, I've been stunned on how the manuscript has been received. Everybody seems to like one thing more over another and for different reasons.
It gives me a big smile to know that somewhere out there you guys are now doing some of my stuff and giving it your own touches.
Thanks to one and all.

Sorry for arriving late to this one as I have had the book for ages now.

There is some stunning stuff in it and I do hope it is not for sale anymore!

I did notice on many ocasions that
after you`ve bought a product,
you ask it not to be sold anymore
or to raise its price.
in other words,"i want all the toys to myself
and no one else has the right to play with them!"

if you like a product and give it a good review
that`s fine and helpful,but please leave
the pricing and selling aspects to
the author/inventor.

Oh, get a sense of humor Ari_Zona. We all say stuff like that from time to time. It doesn't mean we expect it to actually happen.

Just a word of warning, DEEP THOUGHT might end up being sold as a CD-R or in book form... and when it does it will jump up in price to about $35.
So anyone that is still interested can buy it at the $20 at my paypal account: greg@wizmicro.com

After reading all the rave reviews here I decided to order DEEP THOUGHT a couple of days ago.

Thanks to the Labourday weekend here in the U.S., I had the chance to read this excellent e-book thoroughly and give it some thought.

Wow, Greg, you have a winner! The ideas in this book get your creative juices flowing.

My favorites are "Emotion-All" and "Adam's Prediction". The first is something you have to work on, you need some serious acting abilities for this. The second is a great take on n***w*****.

Highly recommended for all serious mentalists.

Greg, thank you for sharing this with us.

Thank you, Thorsten.
I've been very happy with the comments I've been getting on it and some of the different handlings that some have already come up with.
I'm hoping one day Tony Blake, one of the members here, will put out his version of Emotion-all because he took it to a different level where you don't need to have the acting skills and he's even put a bit of comedy into it.
I still prefer to do it with the strong ending, but that's the ham in me wanting to show off.

It is quite a while since I bought Deep Thought.

I am the kind of guy that need a lot (and I mean a LOT) of time from the point where I get something, until I'm through the first periode of practicing it and have made up my mind about it.

I have to chime in here. This material is great!! (...no wonder, coming from Greg), and I absolutely recommend to consider it.
In addition to some very, very good routines, you also learn a lot of Greg's way of thinking.

...and BTW, I am among the ones wondering why Greg "tuned down" so to speak Adams Prediction.
This is just sooo cute, and have a ton of entertainment aspects. Smile
One of my favorites in this book!!

Thanks Greg!! Smile

Sven, you are now on a very long list of guys that have taken to Adam's Prediction more than I could imagine.
I'm just glad everyone has found something in the book that they can use.

Thanks for giving me the biggest laugh of the day so far! Darn right I want all these lovely toys for myself, we don't want them falling into the hands of the humourless after all, do we?

I just received Deep Thought a few weeks ago and have been reading it leasurely. The first routine, "Emotion-all" is really making me mad! It is so #$&@(*# perfect that I can't think of how to make it my own. Usually that is not a problem, but this routine is just perfect! I know that if I don't make it my own, Greg is going to kick my Arce. I know I want to change a few of the words. Well, maybe one word. I think I will replace one of the words with LOVE. That word can conjure up a monkey barrel of humor. Maybe Love, Fear, Funny, Crying. I think this routine is so open to just winging it based on the participants that maybe it doesn't need much more massaging. Maybe I can figure out a way to add a little more magic punch... It's just such a good routine! I think adding stronger magic might take away from how powerful it can be as entertainment.
Thanks, Greg.
