Vanishing Inc is releasing a new book regarding the professional Q&A routine of Luke Jermay. For a person who does mental effects on a parlor/standup environment, I am *** curious about this. However, this is something I haven't seen or witnessed before. I was wondering if the wizards here have an idea on what the whole routine is about.

This sounds awesome. Ive always looked into varying Q&A routines and have seen many performed but never felt comfortable performing one. Jermay is such a brilliant mentalist that this is going to be a definate must have I think!

I saw Luke do his Q & A in Las Vegas and it was one the best performances I have ever seen. The reason was that it fit him so very well. It was just brilliant. I don't know anything about this book, so I can't comment about it except to say that if the information comes anywhere to being the real work of Luke's act, then it will be a must read.

At least it hasn't been produced by him, so you're more likely to receive it after paying for it. Smile

I doubt Mr. Jermay would release all the secrets behind his Vegas Q&A act in this book. This will likely be a stripped down version. I've pre-ordered it. I expect the concepts behind the described act to be useful. For $25 I expect a routine that "can be performed in any environment with very little setup", as advertised. I'm sure the Vegas act made use of the benefits offered by performing in a permanent location. I wish I could have seen the act live but how long can a mentalist thrive in a shoddy theater at a casino that also features alcohol-pushing leprechauns?

Luke is brilliant. I'm glad to see he's releasing a product through a respected company like Vanishing Inc. I trust him to create good things and I trust Vanishing Inc. to deliver the product. Now what I'd like to know is when it will be available...

Luke told me it will be available when you'll have a show to Vegas.
As I pre-ordered too, I hope to see you name somewhere to Vegas Smile

Keeping my expectations low... for $30 I don't expect his Vegas Q&A... but he usually has some nice presentational ideas.

Funny you should mention it. The other day I got a call from this leprechaun...

I received mine. Looks incredible, and for the right performance setting, should make an amazing impression.

The book is beautifully produced and well written.I have not seen the Vegas show, but it doesn't appear to be stripped down here. There are LOADS of details, performance tips and reference to WHY he makes certain presentational choices.
Props include a stack of custom-printed "personality test" cards. The book also mentions a web link where you can download/print your own cards for future performances.

While I primarily focus on close-up, I'm always looking for new effects to help expand my parlor repertoire. This one looks like a winner.
It depends heavily on presentation and interaction...which I imagine results in a personal and memorable experience.

This is not a typical "read it in 10 minutes" type of effect. It's rich in content and deserves careful reading and re-reading.
Well worth the purchase price in my opinion.

Has anybody else read this book? I am wondering if this material is anything new or just a rehash of existing material. Unfortunately, I'm not finding any other reviews.

It was only released a couple of days ago.
Still in the mail to most of us who ordered.

Very Nice Small book of information. Has a lot of nice ideas that will work if you put the time into actually doing it. Its not his Vegas routine, but a good resource to a very well thought out routine. I will try and post an actual review when I get the time this weekend if nobody ells gets to it first.

I received this last week and will echo some of the comments above. The book has a lot of nice ideas and if you put the time into it, will provide you with a great Q&A routine. This is something I plan on working into my show at some point.
