Greetings one and all
I hope this is in the right forum.

I am looking at buying the not-so-cheap download, "Every trick in the book" by Jonathan Royle. Anyone have a review?
Thanks muchly in advance.

Jonathan Royle has a very poor reputation. I have bought a few of his publications and they are extremely poorly put together rubbish. His forte is definitely writing add copy. I personally would not invest that much money for anything from him. I've learnt the hard way, so just letting you know.

He's also been banned from just about every forum.

He usually just puts together a mash of articles and web addresses for you to follow up on. You will get lots of rubbish pdf's as if you are getting value. If you have ever read those scam adds that go on and on with "but you'll also receive" that's Jonathon Royle. Absolute marketing junkman. It's a shame because I feel if he wanted to he could actually put something together that was worthwhile. But unfortunately, he hasn't. The flimflam man of mail order magic. Can only recommend, from personal experience, to stay well clear and put your hard earned money into a reputable creator. I'm very surprised that magic stores are actually letting his products be put on their sites.

I second the opinions of Royle. I tried his hypnosis course years ago and found it to be a confusing mess. Now I am an accomplished hypnotist through the NGH. Avoid Royle at all costs. His complete mentalism show onstage was a total embarassment.

Thanks a lot! You just saved a bunch of my money. When searching by his name, the first result was THIS: "Do not hand over your hard earned cash to this con artist - His Ph.D. and doctorate are FAKE, as are the organisations he claims really exist - they don't!" https://drjonathanroyle-awarning.com/ :angry:

Somebody should write some kind of warning to Penguin as they're selling this scam too http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/S22322

He is a total and complete twat (sorry Magiccafe). We need to ALL recognise he is both insane and fairly evil.
Yet possess’s skills to hypnotised the somnambulist who is unguarded. So look out for this one. Please!

He also has hypnotherapy books on Amazon under the pseudonym "Rogue Hypnotist".
