I am a big fan of Richard Mark & Mark Salem, They are great, I already ordered it.

Description of the Ad:

Do you want to provide powerful entertainment and astound audiences with your mentalism? Become a Mindreading Phenomena using the incredible CEREBRATE!

Close up, platform or stage this secret system provides a mystifying experience as close to real mindreading as you can get. It can be customized to your performance persona and performed before one person or a filled auditorium.

It has been tested in performance and allows you to read thoughts, perform a book test with any book, a telepathic character reading and perform a Q & A in real time with nothing written or prearranged without the use of hidden gimmicks. All the details are contained in this 35 page 8x11 book, practice laminates, video downloads and additional templates.

IT IS ALL IN THE MIND!

Here is what the experts say about CEREBRATE:

"Cerebrate is a diabolical enhancement of a classic principle. Practical and deceptive in application" -Ken Weber

"From the minds of two of most creative guys in mentalism, Richard Mark and Marc Salem, Cerebrate is a well crafted system that works perfectly in completely impromptu situations and is equally suitable for stage and platform work. There's absolutely no doubt that I will make productive use of the system in my own shows - and I predict that serious mentalists everywhere will find themselves doing the same. Highly recommended. " -Bob Cassidy

"If I did mentalism, this is the brilliant system that I would use. It simulates reality, and is really flexible and loads of fun." -Marc Salem

Funny how it's "book with gimmicks" yet the add declares "no hidden gimmicks"

There are no hidden gimmicks involved in the system. The book comes with a few props, though, that are used in different presentations.

I purchased this beautifully produced package at the recent Meeting of the Minds in Chicago, but I have had little time to study it, so I am not in a position to provide a review. I am, however, familiar enough with it to respond to some of the above questions.This is a system that is described in the accompanying ungaffed, 35 page instruction book. The instruction book is simply that and not a book test. As described above it does come with templates and practice laminates that can be used in various presentations as Bod said, but there are no "hidden" gimmicks.
I hope this helps set aside what began to sound like discrepancies between the promotion and the actual package.

Jheff said in the email he sent out today that he'd have it up on Marketplace of the Mind this weekend and reviewed by the end of next week.

No. The system would work in any language, but of course you'd have to make up your own laminates in the language of your choice.

Hopefully jheff will shed more light on what this actually is and what it actually does - because no one here is saying anything.

Sorry if I wasn't clearer, George. Richard Mark may have it available directly, but here's what Jheff, owner of Marketplace of the Mind said in his newsletter
yesterday:

"CEREBRATE is a new item from Marc Salem and Richard Mark.
You read that right. I don't recall Marc putting anything
out commercially so this is certainly a landmark. Of
course, Marc has been on TV, Broadway, and stages across the
world doing mentalism and Richard Mark is the author of MIND
WARP and MIND WORK. I'll have this one up on my site this
weekend and probably reviewed no later than next week."

You might check his site over the next few days to see if he has it listed.

Well...I'm officially intrigued enough to order it.

How's that for 'blind trust?' Bob says it's good. Marc Salem rocks...and...lots of other guys I trust say it's good too. So I order it even before I really know what "it" is.

:)

An adventure!
