The issue, really, is that no where has anyone suggested it's easy to master the ability to present mentalism...


Not sure I agree with that. Although you are spot on when you say that it depends on one's definition of 'mastering' something. To me, it means perfecting something in its entirity. Learning the mechanics alone of the Hoy booktest does not (in my mind) equate to having 'mastered' the effect.

My point is in fact supported by your post - 'mastering' (in this case) mentalism requires that you actually go out and perform it (as you quite rightly state). This is something that simply cannot be taught by a DVD, and this is why the title is innapropriate.

But I'm sure I'm just being pedantic.

How about we just refer to these DVDs as the "Easier to Master" series? Just among ourselves, to help Stephen get aLong...

I think the title is self explanitory, why people dig so much into these things I'll never know.

I really don't think any one would ever call a set " very hard to master mental miracles".Smile
I don't think there will be very many people who won't grasp the titles meaning instantly.

I appreciate that.

Although I'd rather we refer to these DVDs as 'Mental Miracles', just to help me sleep at night.

Thanks.

P.S. My new four DVD set (scheculed for release in 2023) will be called 'Impossible to Master Mental Miracles'. Keep an eye out for them.
