This is David Devlin's approach to Max Maven’s Positive/Negative, which was published in SYZYGY, and then published once again on Max’s VideoMind DVDs from L&L Publishing.

I think David has THE BEST approach to this effect, I have seen several and this is THE ONE.

The biggest differences between my method and others is that there is only one prediction and everything can be given away no matter what. Smile

How does this compare with scott guinn's approach?

Not sure. I have never seen Scott's version. This is something that struck my mind one day. I worked it out on my own with some influences from Kenton Knepper, Dave Forrest, and of course, Max Maven. I have performed it many times. It has floored everyone who has seen it. Best part is that everything may be given away as is. There are no switches or anything like that. Smile

Scott's version is only one prediction, and everything can be given away no matter what as well.

Why reveal the method used for another version of the effect? How would you feel if someone bought "Absolutely Not" and posted the method in ad copy for a different version of Positive Negative?

This sounds like Scott's version. I'd recommend you look into it before selling this to make sure its not the same thing.

It´s funny that you mention Kenton as a influence on this. He has a version that reads the same as your description on his Wonder Words Vol. 2.
Also I don't think that is responsible to release something that maybe it´s already approached by previous authors.

Hoping that all this solves well.

I have sent an e-mail to Mr. Prager asking him to take it down until we find out for sure if this is the same as Scott's or not. I truly did come up with this method on my own, but it may be that this is a case of reinvention.

Does anyone have Scott's contact information they can PM me with?

One question I will ask about Scott's version: is anything written i.e. a written prediction? The answer to that question may clear up the whole thing. Smile

Thank you. I would have PMed him here, but it is my understanding that he doesn't do magic anymore and does not come to The Café very often. Smile

Didn't realize he's no longer doing magic. I do know that before he released his version, he received Max's permission. If you had done that, you would have avoided this situation if they are the same. From the review I linked to a couple of posts up: "This 16-page e-book takes Max Maven's classic Positive Negative routine to a new level. What's improved is that, no matter the outcome, the business card the message is written on can be handed out as a souvenir. ...Scott Guinn's version plays pretty much like the original except there's one verbal addition that allows the card to be accurate and passed out as a souvenir."
