On the 2010 DVD, Paul mentions that a book will be coming out with thoughts from other performers on using his envelope system. Any idea if that ever came to pass?

On a related note, after a couple of years, is anyone out there still using the Impossible Envelope? I don't see much mentioned about it anymore.

It's not currently in my act, but it has been and I do rotate and reinvent things all the time so there is every chance that it will be making an appearance again.

The thing is that it is a tool rather than a complete routine and so if I invent a whole new routine and what a way of revealing a prediction then that one of several answers to the problem.

I'm a firm believer in not trying to reinvent the wheel and whilst a routine and idea will be something all new and shiny, the things behind it are usually as old as the hills.

As for the book: I personally haven't heard anything about it being released but then I don't know everything that escapes.

If you liked that and while waiting you may find Alvo Stockman´s Post Mentalism worth a look.

I understand that Paul got side-tracked with the release of the book, too many other projects came rushing in. No doubt he will release it in the future.

The IE is a great effect!

Do you use the IE? If so, what effect have you created to use with it? Or do you do something similar to the effect taught in the DVD? I consider it more of a utility than an effect. One of the reasons I haven't worked it up yet, is because I haven't created the right effect for it yet. But now I'm getting closer.

No, not to my knowledge.

In fact I haven't heard much about Paul, these days. Is he still performing?

After the scandal he's seems to have disappeared.
