If anyone has this item that has sold out just about everywhere, please let me know if it is any good or not. Included is a video demo, thanks.

Yes, just watched the clip. Looks good and, given the DVD runs for so long, I guess the routine has various possibilities.

Like you, Decomposed, would be interested in a review.

Hi, I know Alan very well, he is a real gent. He took some time getting this up and running, and I think he has come up with quite a gem.
Alans video, IMHO, is much better than the one on JB magics site. Take a look http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZ5XYaSRgSs
Hope this helps.

It does look interesting! It say that they can examine the book but I wonder if they can examine the prediction?? Either way, it looks great.

Thanks Keith,

That's a lot better, this explains more of what the effect has to offer.

Keith,

Do you have any idea when this may be available again?

Thanks,

"Alans video, IMHO, is much better than the one on JB magics site." How right you are Keith ! Why on Earth are most demos to-day noisy and full of animations to the extent that at least anyone who is not used to watching US TV will understand little or nothing at all. A no noise, no explosions, no silly flimmering animations demo like this one really impresses. You clearly see what you buy and you see how it is presented in a performance, and still have no idea how it was done. That is what magic is about: you cannot believe your eyes.
Of course I ordered and will post an opinion as soon as I have mastered the trick.

Unless it is a misprint, the accompanying DVD running time is over 1 hour. I'm curious as to why it is so long - are there various alternative handlings to the routine or variations not touched on in the ad?

I gather it was a misprint I saw and the DVD is 15 minutes and with the effect being learned in a minute or two.

Mine arrived today. The quality of the book is superb and, as the ad says, the spectator can leaf through it to their hearts content and stop at any page. It is like a genuine free choice of ESP cards except, in this case, it is 4 different symbols all on one page.

The actual working of the effect is also very clever and although, I have yet to perform, I am sure it is going to convince. The only slight alteration I may make is to handwrite the prediction rather than use the one printed on the envelope. This will make the prediction appear more personal.

This is an effect I very much like and can see why stocks soon sold out.

I just received mine yesterday and I'm very impressed. The size of the book however is a little too large for walk-around, so I constructed my own with a smaller 3" x 5" pad using some thick paper stock in about 20-minutes.

The routine is easy to perform....I took it out for a spin last night into the real-world (a couple of local bars) and the reactions were very strong! What I like most about the effect is that the book can be freely handled by spectator's and they won't find a thing. Behaviour Patterns truly delivers.

JB Magic should seriously consider re-releasing this effect as a double-book packaged set (pro-pack). It could include a larger size for parlor (5" x 7") and a smaller notebook version (3" x 5") for walk-around. With my homemade version, I also added a magnetic cover so that when closed it keeps everything together (envelope and book) to avoid having to use a rubber band as Mark suggests on the DVD.

If you're on the fence about this one, all I can say is jump over...it's worth the money!

I agree with Neil. A handwritten message on the envelope is much better than the printed version enclosed. Thankfully, JB Magic included an extra envelope so that you can do just that. It takes the effect away from a 'magic prop' and makes it more personal.

I bought this effect from http://www.jbtv.co.uk which I received yesterday. This is an exceptionally powerful and strong effect, yet very very simple. Only now and again do I buy something that exceeds my expectations and Behaviour Patterns really is that good. Best £20 I've spent in a long time. Anyone thinking of buying it go for it you will not be disappointed.

Thank you for the kind remarks. I am really glad people like it.

Regarding the size of the booklet, strangely enough the first prototype was 3'' by 5''. I decided this was too small for table magic [for example] and Mark Mason agreed, so we scaled it up to the present 5.5 by 4.25. `It goes in jacket & trouser pockets & in some shirt pockets. However we all need things that work for US individually. E.G. I use an 8'' by 9'' version for cabaret settings. All the best effects can be personalised, & as Neil says, a handwritten prediction will work better in some settings.

My web site now has the video of me performing BPs & is set up with PayPal etc. That also includes a couple of bonuses.

Alan,
You should always go with your first instinct LOL. The 3" x 5" would be perfect for strolling work because as you know pocket space is at a premium. What do you think about my idea to launch a 'Pro-pack' <set> for workers? The existing size is fine for table-workers because most carry a case, but for parlor it is a tad small for people to see from a distance. Your suggestion of 8" x 9" is ideal for parlor. IMO the effect is strong enough to warrant a second release with both mentioned sizes. How can I influence you Smile

Regards,
Jared

I never thought this would play so strong. Althoigh the method was quite clear to me when I saw he demo, I gave this a try in the real world ans it really gets great reactions.

Well done Alan!

Yet another thing I passed over at Blackpool.

I some times think I'm not safe to be allowed out on my own.

When I saw this, I thought of last years (or was it the year before) 'rubiks cube prediction thingy' Mark Elsdon released, or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Just ordered this and really looking forward to using it. I decided to order direct from Alan as he includes two bonuses with the order.
