Y'know, when the moderatorors move a thread willy-nilly from one place to another, you'd think they'd put it in an appropriate place.

Hey mods: this review was about the HARD COPY of the book, not the E-BOOK!

Hey guys...thanks for great reviews...they mean a lot to me.

I, too, have no idea why Richard's threat was removed from the "Penny."

I'm not going to mention threat titles or "throw anyone under the bus," but from looking at the front page right now, I can count SEVERAL threads that deal with marketed products, and there even a few there talking about books and eBooks...and those are still up and have not been moved elsewhere.

I'm not sure why Richard's post regarding my effect was singled out to be moved, yet those other threads remain in place.

Interesting.

Anyway, thank you all again.

I ordered this today & Bryn got it to me very quickly(thanks Bryn)!

There is some really great thinking here,all of the effects are well thought out & practical. I also appreciate Bryns writing style, the book was a comfortable read for me that made me feel like Bryn was sharing all this great material with a friend.

Do yourself a favor & get this!

I smiled when I got to the $4.00 index Smile & was a little sad their wasn't more. I'm looking forward to version 2.0


Thanks Bryn,
Mike

Made me laugh, Chet...since I have been stewing a lil bit...

Ichazod: Thanks for the review...as much as you said you like the efects, I am also appreciative of how you said the writing style worked for you. I was really going to try this as a full novel, with the effects and descriptions hidden therein, but certainly don't have the time. It is going to kill me to further sort these notes out for V.2 this summer in nice weather...but I will. I DO have a full book or two in me though!

Yeah, Chet, the FIVE Dollar version will deliver the correct billet right into your waiting outstretched hand! LOL

Contemplating on the removal of Richard's post about my product, that HE started, yet other posts that someone starts about their OWN book/product remain up.... as do many threads in Penny which deal with commercial products...

makes me wonder who "reported" the thread..Steve Brooks assures me it wasn't him and will advise further...regardless...Makes me want to "report" button all of those, but since they are great guys, I wouldn't...

Perhaps this was MEANT to remain "underground" and will be legend...
Perhaps this was only a teaser for THE SAFWAN PAPERS V.2...

Perhaps I should stop releasing any more copies....NAH!...lol

Ordered and received this today. So, with no audience testing yet all I can really say is this:

FRAKING BRILLIANT!

I am in favor of this. These Bryn creations should be strictly limited.

I should clarify. When I say that future Bryn creations should be strictly limited, I mean they should be strictly limited to ME. Oh, maybe we'll let Richard have a copy, but he has to promise to not tell anyone about it.

Lol, Chet.

I so know what you mean. The way I think about it is simply that the people who are going to get the most out of Bryn's work are the real workers. Real workers get real effects, Bryn gets real money (which motivates him to release more stuff). It really does seem good enough to make you want it all to yourself though, lol.

(Cool...aparently Steve saw fit to throw this thread Richard started back on here...)

Anyway...meant to post this when it was here earlier:

I've seen single routines sell from $15-60 around here... and Byrn has taken the effort to write up the routines in such detail with tons of good effects that can be tweeked into lots of different things... I'd estimate this book should have sold for $100 at least. Bravo!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



I'd like to announce a slight price..."adjustment"...to THE SAFWAN PAPERS...

I'M KIDDING!...but I certainly appreciate the sentiment and thoughtful comments, good DR.

I am most greateful that others I shared this with pre-publication expressed similar views regarding pricing. However, honestly, I placed the price points (eBook and printed) where they are for a few reasons:

There WILL hopefully be a release of "THE SAFWAN PAPERS V.2" later this summer(although with another pending National Guard deployment it may have to get rolled into an "Afghanistan Papers" variant...) and I do want to have enough people see the first TSP to generate interest in that tome as well. Those that purchase
TSP "V.1" know I have a "teaser" of the upcoming effects in my conclusion section.

Another reason is that it may generate more interest in my individually-offered effects. Those have been reviewed quite well and are still play as strong as ever.

I could have sold FEWER of this book at a HIGHER price...and realized the same gains. And those "gains" are not why I do this. I mention that in the book. Sure, the few bucks I make helps fuel a couple of hobby addictions, perhaps, but quite honestly it is a huge ego boost to me know that routines & effects that I have developed not only play very strongly for ME are also considered "workers" for others as well.

By the way...it was posted in a thread that it was nice to see a picture of me other than my avatar. (from the book...and those that I dedicated it to steal the show, don't they?) Here is my other site, with more pics and videos...where my other sideline IS a source of income:

Thanks for all the great commnents on THE SAFWAN PAPERS...I appreciate it!

Amen, Bryn! Hold your ground, bro'! There need to be more authors taking this stance. You are offering an excellent product at a fair price...and proving to others that it isn't necessarily all about the money.

I'm in your camp on this one.

Best,
Mick

Bryn,

First an foremost thank you, not just for a great book but also your service, my daughter is over in the green zone and being ex military myself, I can only imagine what you had to go thru.

Love the spin on bank night with "Your Luck Night" I am adding it to my routines. I have also joined the "Seven" bandwagon.

Great job!

Bryn,

First, let me thank you for bending over backwards in helping me download your wonderful E book. We had some computer issues but you were nice enough to spend your time on Sunday to make sure I finally received your book.

Anyway, I now had a chance to go over the routines more thoroughly and certainly concur with the unanimous decision of others that the book is a real winner with material that performers will use. The routines are inspirational and are full of ideas that can be used for other applications.

Please let me know when you've completed your sequel as I want to be first in line.
Thanks again.

Steve

Mick: I appreciate the comments on my pricing...while I am glad others say I should have charged much more, I have posted here, and have written in the book, why I do what I do...

Omar: Thanks for YOUR service, and I'll pray for the safe return of your daughter. It was a LONG year over there..tell her I was part of a Q.R.F.
I am glad you are performing the effects!

Steve: Seems to be an AOL-specific issue in accepting a PDF that big..but I am glad we worked it out and that you like my brand of mentalism...Thanks!

I again thank all that are jumping on for this ride!

Life is too short for us not to be able to really read someone's mind at the drop of a hat, sans any props while still making it entertaining.....

A little ironic with the to and fro from Mick and Bryn, two fellas that charge a pittance for treasures.

I have praised TSP all over the place, but I just have to say it again but in different words.

Between performances, I have little else to do but to obsess over mentalism.

Then Bryn comes along, whilst fighting insurgents and interrogating gang members, and delivers groundbreakers.

BR, I am both jealous of your talents and thrilled with your contributions.

And in the words of the fabulous Ms. Spears...

Gimme Gimme More!

Geeez, Don...thanks for those kind words!

(and there may be more later this summer with V.2, 2.0...whatever unimaginative name I decide to call it...)

Well I've had the Safwan Papers for a few days now and finally had time to work through the stuff. It is a great little resource. Every routine is workable practical and cleverly thought through.... I think that everything in their will get played with by me at some point. Thanks Bryn. Now I'm too curious about your other stuff...... dang!
