Of course. If you look at the review I give details of the routines and the techniques.

I understand that negative reviews are often taken personally, but I think that we are in a difficult situation with magic DVD's- you have to buy sight unseen and there can be no returns. Therefore we need honesty in reviews and contents

I have tried to be honest and I am not trying to be unpleasant to anyone.

I respect your feedback even if it's not positive with a few exceptions:

1. RZ center tear is completely my own variation!
2. RZ Modified Switch is my modification to Annemann's and I also explain in detail the creative thinking techniques that I applied to it. After looking it up I can say that Osterlind may have something similar but not the same.
3. PAM TW force is WAY more than a minor modification to PATEO and I also explain my way of thinking.
4. Acidus Alkalinus is Acidus Novus but with different approach to the peak.
5. I don't try to show magician breakers or present moves that you've never seen anything like it before.
However, I do demonstrate my approach and way of thinking in a real world working mentalist arena, and trust me the material on this DVD is defiantly not just for beginners.
6. The routines are basic with one purpose – to be a vessel for the feature the techniques.

Shane, I encourage you to watch Requires Only You again without trying to be fooled. Pay attention to the subtleties, way of thinking and the approach. I am sure that once you apply this way of thinking your opinion will change.

By the way, I am a big fan of the sentence: God is in the small details.

I don't want to get in to an argument and I do not want to be unpleasant. I find watching a performer's style interesting but that is not how this DVD is billed.

Thank you for keeping this civil. It shows in your attitude that you are a good person.

I have read your replies and stand by my original comments.

Kind regards

Jheff of Marketplace Of The Mind puts Requires Only You in the Honorable Mention section of his Best of 2012 list. See here:

He also gives the DVD a very good review:

Jheff is not an "easy" reviewer so it is hard to imagine this being a DVD best suited for beginners without him saying just that. Interesting that two people have posted otherwise; now I have to get it and decide for myself!
