It's great! Seriously great! A beautiful book full of workable routines and wonderful ideas. Very, very inspiring. The Welcome chapter alone makes it totally worth the investment. Love it!

My copy arrived the other day and I have been slowly digesting it - I actually got the chance to read it from very early on because I did the design / layout of the book, but actually reading the final thing is much more relaxing and I don't have to work out how to fit it all together - the printers did a great job. Diverse, approachable, engaging material that is recognisably Colin without being so fixed to his performance style that it won't fit in with yours.

(I reckon a lot of people will find a new pet effect in By Association too - strong, organic and very doable, who's with me?)

"by association " is very strong, indeed. no wonder it was held a secret, UNTIL NOW! Smile

Brilliant book. Best read for me since... Dunno, Alch Tools by Paul Brook. Easily Colin's best work to date, and that's saying something!

Well done amigo. So many workers in there it's not real Smile

I received my book a couple of days ago, I thought I would offer a few of my personal thoughts.

I can only echo what everyone else is saying. The material in this book is great! Strong working, any place, any time material. I like Colin's genius thoughts on several principles that he has craft-fully reworked to be beautiful pieces of modern day mentalism (while still being grounded in classical principles).

The word association effect from within the book was my particular favourite, it's stunning and oh so devious!

I also love the attention to detail Colin has paid on each effect, taking into account each action/ moment that is important in the routine. The psychology of why things work and how people think is covered in great detail.

There is a certain ploy that Colin uses close up and I love how bold it is!!

If that wasn't enough the book is PACKED with great justifications...My recommendation GRAB IT!

P.s Did I say I interviewed Colin in the book! x

The many recommendations in this thread have me sold. I bit the bullet and just purchased.

Here's hoping I didn't miss some sort of brief shipping window before Colin departs once again for locations unknown, as I'm chomping at the bit to receive the book. Mesmerised Deck sounds like it may fit beautifully into the flow of my performance, and I simply cannot wait to try it out.

Amazing... it took just 11 days to get to the west coast of the states during the busiest shipping season of the year.
Will dive into it this weekend...

Still waiting in New Orleans too, though I'm pretty sure they still use ponies here.
Every problem contains the seeds of its own solution. Unfortunately every problem also contains the seeds of an infinite number of non-solutions, so that first part really isn't super helpful.

A routine called "By Association" I really like.

To all who are waiting for the delivery. It's worth it.
The book looks and feels beautiful. The style of writing is engaging and we'll paced. I have read it once through and at one point thought I'd lost the plot. Later I discovered the plot was like a lot of Colin's work is. Well hidden in plain sight.
I enjoy learning from a practitioner who certainly knows his way about, as I did from his Opening Minds DVD and Blackpool 2013 lecture and notes.
His delivery is no nonsense, to the point and easy to follow
Others have commented on the content and I will only add ditto.


Yip I'm a fan
