Entermagic: are people really buying this book for a single effect?. That's not a rhetorical question, I'm genuinely interested. I'm not personally buying for this reason and acaan is a plot that has never particularly interested me. I know I'll get flamed for this, but it always seems like something that you need to understand to at least some degree to fully appreciate. I.e a magician would appreciate it more than a laymen. I don't do it though so only an opinion as an observer of the effect.

In my opinion there 90% of the buyers look for The Holy Grail of ACAAN aka The Berglas Effect for many people.

Reading on geniimagazine about this book, looks like a big advertisement for an empty box.

Just my opinion.

That's quite interesting. I certainly hope those people get what they are after as it's not a cheap book. I've can't think of any books written by Richard Kaufman that I've been disappointed by so fingers crossed.

The Mind and Magic of David Berglas is one of the really great books on magic that I have read. His creativity and structuring of illusions is superb.

If this new book contains the same level of creativity then it will be well worth the price. I learned a great deal from this first book.

Did you order it entermagic? I have ordered it, because I am sure I will learn a lot of good things. Obviously there will be very good material inside this book, which always good to know if you want your magic to be at the highest level. But concerning the Berglas effect, I think it is different as the ACAAN, and that as we are NOT David Berglas, it will be very difficult to perform it properly, just as DB used to perform it for his audience. It it HIS effect, HIS handling, HIS mind (and HIS balls Smile ) so we should not copy him, but rather try to find our own solutions... instead of the desire, the curiosity for a "reveal" of "how he does that". Despite that, I think it will be really interesting to read his solution, just for our magical culture.

I am sure that I will find it on ebay, because many people will be disappointed and anyway I don't want it also if someone
sends it me for free.

Just I want to warn you about this big speculation.

Its from David Berglass.. 60years for 100$.. seems ok to me..
Lifetime expirience for 100$!!! 1,6$ for each of his years..
Expect to learn something and nobody will be dissapointed.
There are still so many great CAAN around. Also where you do not
need to touch the deck. Even a CAAN can be programmed as a ACAAN
in a spectators mind. Beside the mechanical marvels there are so many
great approaches out there where the cardbox can remain untouched
the whole time. Hilfords approach kills totaly. McLeods approach fools even
people who are in the know about the technique.
I guess this book represents the grandfather of ACAAN for me and I can't
wait to meet him. Does'nt matter if the complete berglass effect is described here.
It's about passion not just secrets!

All Best,
Martin

Of course it does NOT really exist! It is a illusion, as everything in our art...

Just ordered.. amazing man, and much respect.
The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.

I don't think so!

There are a few threads, Kaufmanns own on genii included, that say that it will be more then hard to do the Berglas effect, still if you read the book. So everyone just interested in the holy grail will fail totally! You have to take time to get as much out of it as possible!

I will buy the book because of many other reasons!

Best,

Yep, it involves more than a zip-locked bag and 2 minutes of your attention. My goodness, "effort" may be required!

I wonder if the real Berglas effect (from the book description) will be like this one or even better? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HucCvySRmpc

I think it involves more more things that we cannot imagine if we are not in the mind of DB!

Nope, it's nothing like that. See The Mind And Magic of David Berglas for an outline of how the effect is achieved.
The NEW Berglas book "joins the dots".
