I just got through the James Bond Reading" by Julian 'Bev' Moore, and I have to say that it has a few things going for it over those tried-and-true "masters" that we all talk about - you know, Martin, Dewey, Webster, et al. Don't get me wrong: I have the Masters' books, and I believe that the thinking within them is undeniably brilliant. But the thing that Bev has done is taken the Classic Reading - which *isn't out-of-date, as some would suggest - and applied a James Bond theme to its LEARNING (not to the reading itself, per se), to make the reading's customization so much easier.

If you ever say anything that appears less-than honoring about the Masters you will receive much criticism from their respective camps. Suffice it to say that Bev's fresh thinking and his approach to easing the learning curve of things related to readings (be they cold reading, palm reading, or anything else) should garner a camp of his own...and I'll be first in line for entrance! It's ingenious, simple, and thought-inspiring, all at the same time! Buy this now, and start using it right away!

Thanks for that review Lee!
The book can be found here, and I've used your review if you don't mind, along with a couple of others:

Hello everyone. I usually hang out at another forum for mentalists but I had to come over here to say what a great book Bev came out with. I don't personally know the man, but I ordered the book based on how he lessened the learning curve with his previous book on how to read palms. In fact--he shortend the learning curve by about five years. I thought I might simply copy and paste my thoughts that I posted on the other forum over the last week on the James Bond Reading system.
Wed. April 11, On another note--I just ordered Bev's new book yesterday. It looks fantastic. Can't wait 'till the GF leaves tomorrow morning so I can really study it. Heck--I might tell her to go home tonight. Naaa--Bev's book is great--but---nature calls.

Wed. April 11, two hours later. Getting a chance to read Bev's book at work. It's so easy I will add this to my "readings" repertoire. Just so no one gets the wrong idea--this has nothing to do with palm reading. I originally thought that and thought others might think that as well.

Thurs. April 12, 24 hours later. I have been reading the book the last couple of days. I have tried many times to learn the stock lines of cold reading. I've tried memory techniques, linking, the peg system, and even with all that everything seemed a confusing, repetitive mess. Because of Bev's system, in two days, I have learned to give a cold reading forward, backward, inside out and in my own words. I feel comfortable enough that anyone at anytime could come up to me for a reading and I can just start wailing. In the past, I would have relied on numerology, palms or the Rhine Cards. Just as with Bev's palm book saving me about 5 years of study, this book is just as good and also very interesting. If you're interested in cold reading at all--this will be the best 40 bucks you'll ever spend. Hope this helps. Oh--as a side note--his system could be applied to anything else you might want to memorize and make your own. I have never heard of his techniques before and I have studied a lot of memory techniques.

April 14, 2007 2 days later. To add to Wolfgangs thoughts, Bev also suggests that after learning the traditional stock lines, then you can go to any other cold reading book such as Red Hot Cold Reading or whatever--and take an equivalent or more amount of lines and memorize those instantly also. Well--instantly might take a half hour since you will have to lay it out yourself--but with Bev's tools--it's a dream.

Scott

PS Since I'm not well known here--just a quick word about my credentials. I perform mentalisim for walkaround, living room parties and small private gatherings and celebrations. I have been getting in to readings for the last six months since that is what people REALLY want to see. In other words--information about themselves as compared to telling them what number they're thinking of. With Bev's books on Palm Reading and now the wonderful James Bond system of cold reading--he has made the transistion soooooooooooooooooo much easier. In fact--his style of writing was so good another famous mentalist "borrowed" Bevs style (with Bev's permission I'm sure" and converted it to the Rhine cards. Good luck to everyone with your readings. Bev's books make it ridiculously simple.

So I'm finally watching the new Casino Royale and lines from the James Bond Reading keep popping unbidden into my head. What makes this interesting is I hadn't really intended on learning the reading via James Bond but via a character I know more about.

After Casino Royale, I found I knew most of the story as layed out by Bev and with an hour of brushing up, all of it. I find when the memory system is intuitive, I absorb at least half of the details, just reading about it.

I followed Bev's suggestions to practice readings aloud, even to inanimate objects. After a bit of this, I tried the real deal.

I've always noted parallels between readings and psychotherapy. This is actually one of the reasons I've stayed away from formal readings. But I had the opportunity to weave the JBR into a mentalism effect (my Subliminal Square as published in PS 2) using body language and physical characteristics as my "oracle." I followed Bev's advice about riffing off of just one or two of the 12 main statements, encouraging dialog and enhancing cooperation. It worked like a charm. I've always loved this routine (of course I'm biased) but in the 1/2 dozen + times I've added the JBR, SS has taken on a whole new life.

This isn't something you can do mechanically, at least if you want to get maximum effect and responses. It is a matter of a give and take that is "entrancing" in its impact. The last two times I did SS with JBR were the best. I can't wait to see what more experience will bring.

Thank you Bev, you really have made a significant contribution. Your ability to simplify and teach is exceptional. I generally rely on my knowledge as a psychologist to add a bit of reading but it wasn’t anywhere as powerful as applying this system. Folks, don't just read JBR. Get out there and use it.

Pardon me for posting up what someone said on another forum, but when it's Richard Osterlind it's hard not to get excited:

"I have been on the go and very busy, but I have to say that I got Bev's book and it is wonderful! It is a great system for doing a reading and extremely practical. I applaud Bev and highly recommend this!"

IS it possible to purchase this item anywhere in the form of a hard physcial book or is only available in ebook format? Secondly, how compatible do users rate this for implementing body language and psychological cues as pseudo-explanations for magic tricks?

The Lulu copy is down at the moment. I'll post when it's available back in hard copy. Lulu changed a whole bunch of back end stuff recently which meant some books got deleted by accident.

However don't forget you can still use the discount code NEWSITEDISCOUNT on all products till the end of this weekend for ebooks on our main site!

The audiobook for James Bond will definitely not be free, seeing as it's more conceptual. The other books really don't work unless you study the text too. And if you haven't, well, you're just not going to learn as quickly. The whole point of having the text, and the flashcards, and the audio is so that you can attack the learning from all sides. If you're only listening to the audiobooks then you're missing out.
