Received today.

First impression is kind of meh... I don't see my self using this as the strength's touted in the ads(no fishing) are (for my taste) outweighed by the weaknesses (the fact that this feels more like a puzzle, not mind reading).

Clever? Kind of.

But this can't even come close to Flashback or MOABT - or Glance Magazine test.

Someone who had a deeper background in mentalism would probably have gone a different route. Yes it might initially feel like you are in the spectator's head, but you are kind of flying blind and in the end there is a little fishing needed.

I will not be using - not bad, but not good enough even for $35 to be groundbreaking.

Yes the formatting is kinda weird - and why put the author's name as PATRICK DIFFER which is Google searchable as a magician? http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/bb_pr......er=13681

Also the internal F pages are poorly executed. Anyone opening to the very start of the book will see a page in the mid hundreds. Compare this to the far better Ultimate Flashback by Larry Becker and you will see that the numbering starts at a place within the book where you would expect it Smile That's where a mentalist's audience management comes in.

Same as with Osterlind's great paperback book test.

I rate 6.5 out of 10. Cute but this is kinda too cute, and not usable for my taste unfortunately.

I will send you mine FREE as a gift Rob, Just PM me with your address. Since I won't be using, I would rather give it a new home. Perhaps you will like it.

I kind of figured that views such as your own would start to emerge as people start receiving this product. I have honestly not been impressed by any of the material that the Other Brothers have released. They've all pretty much been "cute" but that's about it.

I would say this is decent for the money, it’s cheap and cheerful. It won’t go down as a classic but isn’t terrible either. I’d say its not bad for a hobbyist but a pro is likely to spend the money on something better.
