Different methods for different outcomes.


You can calculate how many outs or effects you need in order to make any card appears in any position without you touch ever the deck asking just for
a card and a number directly and without pre-show or stooges etc..
You can reduce the number of possibles outs if you just use some psychological technique.
I tried to find all possibles ways to have this effect hands off and as clean as possible, but I have always some outs where I need to touch the deck.
From my analysis these are my conclusions: The Berglas Effect (ACAAN hands off as clean as possible) doesn't appear always, but it has an high probability to appear and when this effect doesn't appear you have a good ACAAN where you touch the deck and in this last case you can use some psychological technique
in order to make the spectator to remember that you never touched the deck. Without to explain anything about the methods this is for me The Berglas Effect.

I'm pretty sure that I will get this. even though its £100 and even if it doesn't have the berglas effect, david berglas is a genius and so I believe that the set will be worth it anyway. Smile
ps. anyone know if it will be a limited run?

Mr Kaufman said :


There will also be a pair of 3D glasses included for something in the book (as well as for viewing the 3D portions of the Genii issue).

I am going to try and keep the price to $100 for the book and 3 DVD set. I think it's a very good price. You'll have to purchase the book directly from me (which is how I can keep the price that low). If I wholesale the book, the retail price would have to be $200. I don't see much point in that. I'll probably ask for an additional charge for Priority Mail, so all books can be shipped safely in a sturdy box and received within a few days. Hopefully this will prevent banged corners and lost books.

There will be a deluxe edition (I'm hoping in leather and in a slipcase) limited to 100 copies, signed by David, and which will include some pieces of memorabilia from his life in show business. No price yet.

It has the Berglas effect described inside, look at the content of the book (previously posted)!

I've ordered this already and intend to read it thoroughly. I don't have any huge aspirations to perform ACAAN, but I am sure understanding the methodolgy will be of huge value to other areas of card magic....not to mention the other gold in it.

The very fact that almost everyone is commenting on the Berglas effect as a reason to buy and Richard Kaufman saying that not everyone will be able to do it without tons of practice, suggests that loads of people will be selling this soon after purchase and discovery of the hallowed secret. Seems crazy to me so hopefully I am wrong. Personally, I'd buy this without the Bergals effect and cannot wait.

I have preordered. Even if I could buy it for $20 or $30 less from someone else, I would rather buy a new copy so that Mr. Berglass is adequately compensated given his lifetime of work.

Brehaut: completely agree with you. My copy won't be going anywhere. All I'm saying is to buy a book for £100 chasing one trick (which I beleive some are) can only lead to disappointment for some but of course not all.

I may be missing something here, but wasn't the Berglas Effect in his previous book, The mind and magic of david berglas???

No, definitely no... It was a very clever (but vague) description on how you could manage with this effect, but you had to touch the cards etc... Have you read MMDB before Matt?

I think many people will be disapointed with the secret of the Berglas effect.

I'm pretty sure that you have to touch the deck when you do the Berglas effect, because Berglas said in the EMC's interview, that it gives you the ILLUSION that the performer never touches the deck. Because thinking of the conditions, it is impossible to accomplish this effect without touching the deck or stooges.

I honestly believe that magicians/mentalists who have studied ACAAN know already at least two ways to perform the Berglas Effect. I believe this book will serve to confirm what some already know. It will however be a great book to have because of the man whom it is written about.


Good magic to all,

To have a consistent a.c.a.a.n. you must have a method. I don't believe Berglas would take the chance or the humiliation of failing by depending on luck. If you look at the titles of some of the chapters of the book it reads like the methods of a.c.a.a.n to me. Take the chapter on invisible control and he didn't touch the deck. this is what is needed to preform a.c.a.a.n., and if the audience thinks you haven't touched the deck and you have the ability to invisibly control cards this would allow you to preform the berglas effect. If this book is the real deal then other magicians will be able to use his time tested methods to duplicate his effect. This makes the book A must have if you are interested in the a.c.a.a.n. plot.

You can preorder "The Berglas effect" at the following link:

http://geniimagazine.com/kaufman/store/html/79.html

If it is half as good as "The mind and magic of Berglas" was, this one will be a definite winner! And I'm sure it will be at least so good as the first book was.

Just take a look at the contents:

Foreword (Juan Tamariz)
Preface
Introduction
Invisible Control
The Magic in David Berglas’s Card Magic
A Closed System
David Berglas Talks About Personality and Presentation
Beware the Obvious
He Never Touched the Deck
Searching for Perfection
Zen in a Pack of Cards
Think a Card
Any Card at Any Number
Small Tools and Party Tricks
Magician’s Choice
Mind Mapping for Magicians
The Set-Up Deck
Jazzing Around with a Set-Up Deck
The Berglas Effect
The Act: The Berglas Effects
Last Word

I already put my order in and can't wait until the 1st of april!!!

Best,
mtc

Don't worry, in the book I think there won't be a real explanation of the Berglas effect... We all have our method to do a clear ACAAN, so where is the need of knowing Berglas's method? It will remain a legend Smile

Just a question:

What happens if inside the book there is not an effect explained, but many techniques to build The Berglas Effect?
Just another M & M with more techniques???

For me is ridiculous, that if you read this book, you are not able to perform it, because you are not David Berglas... LOL
I call this "BIG SPECULATION"!!!

Everyone look just for this effect and not many effects: http://soundcloud.com/dodococo/berglas-acaan

If someone is disappointed Richard will refund everyone???

Good Luck with the legendary Speculation ever!

Just my thoughts.

My thoughts are there is more to the book then an any card at any number.
