Quick update...for some reason it seems to be taking AGES to take delivery of these things. I can only apologise. Sorry about that. I've sent out all of the bonus e-books on the preshow technique to everyone who bought Whisper already (if I missed you drop me an email - make sure it's an email not a Café PM that way I'll see it fastest).

Thanks for you continued patience.

Isn't it kind of disrecpectful to sell something that you don't have? I know, it was preorder an all, but waiting a month for product is just wrong. You knew it will take that long to actually have this book in your hands, but you still sell it. You should at least give back the money to people who ordered your book. It seems like scam to me. You are just saying, to all these people that you don't care how long they will have to wait.

It's a preorder---what part of that do you not understand?

Ken or Mark Elsdon,

I'm considering purchasing this book. However, I want to be clear on the limitations of the effect. Can anyone be more specific about the word the spectator in the audience selects? Does Whisper require the purchase of an additional book test? Or require you to CONSTRUCT your own book to make this effect work? In other words, is the word the audience member selects a completely random word? Or are they required to choose a word from a book in the no-preshow version of Whisper that is advertised? (I hope that makes sense.) and Finally, does the audience member who selects the word remain in the audience the entire time while the magician is on stage? Or is there any point in time in which the magician has to make brief contact with the spectator who selects the word? I hope those questions are generic enough to be answered. Thank you!

@False-Shuffle:
My apologies for the confusion. Whisper is not the method for working out what word is thought of by a spectator. It is the method for having someone else reveal the thought, instead of you.

I have one question about this:

Can you do this with just two people, say a couple, who can talk to each other afterwards? If not then I fear its designed for stage. But DR is forever doomed to be avoided by the close-up people.
I call myself "Thomas Cooper" here because this stops the magic café appearing when people google my stage name.

Does anyone else find the term "Special User" to be a bit condescending?

Thomas,
Let me give you an example instead of just my opinion, if that's okay?

I was performing, admittedly a stand up performance in a restaurant. I had the woman take a book and think of a word from the book in the usual way. At this point I could have told him what word she was thinking of, but instead I asked boyfriend or husband (I don't know which she he) to come up because HE was going to read his partner's mind, "after all he thinks she can do it already?" I said, in an attempt at being witty.

He came up, I performed Whisper with him and he told her what she was thinking (he actually wrote it on a pad, she called out his word which I think was Candlestick and he turned his pad around to show that's what he had written).

After the show the young guy came up to me, with his girlfriend and said to me "I don't know how I knew it was going to be Candlestick."

I was also blown away, you know them moments when you are suddenly reminded of how powerful this stuff is? That was one of them, for me.

BTW the first bunch of books shipped 2 days ago so we might get some reviews soon too, which I am looking forward to reading.

CHEERS!

I had many solutions for this problem and my simplest solution is this one:

The best version doesn't use the pre-show and I use also for ACAAN.

A short honest review:
It works. This probably will be in every mentalists arsenal in a couple of years. But for now I'm happy to be among the few who will use this already.
Kennedy's video actually for me gave away the method, so I hope it will be removed soon. But in the book there are plenty of subtleties and routines that make the book worthwhile. For a performing entertainer, the price is right. If you only want to know the secret to this method and don't use it, it's expensive.

Anyway with whisper you REALLY can make a mind reader out of a spectator (for a minute or two) and when handled right, the spectator won't know how she did it. My "worker of the week". I will probably implement this concept in every performance from now on. Play time!

I think I have a very basic understanding of what makes up Whisper... to an extent (thanks to the video).

I was unsure on this but now I'm seriously considering investing in it, I could be WAY off but if not then this is some clever s#!t and something I think I'd utilise.

Any word on how many copies are left?

Cheers.

I just purchased it based upon more comments and reviews I have seen. I look forward to reviewing it and posting my own thoughts when I get it and have a chance to digest it. As for the price and limited editions, I much prefer a high price for something that is truely quality with a very limited distribution than something than everyone and their brother can get for $25. Just my opinion. And I certainly hope that the ad is correct that only 150 copies will be sold and that is it.

I really want this, but when I read:

After the show the young guy came up to me, with his girlfriend and said to me "I don't know how I knew it was going to be Candlestick."

I received the book and have read portions of it, not finished yet. PWRIS, the couple can talk afterwards and will still not know exactly how it worked. It also depends on how nervous the spectator is on stage and how much he remembers after the show. If everything is remembered exactly, the couple will still have a small effect and mystery to take home. I try to think about the audience at large, what they take home.
