Did people buy a PDF? Or a physical book?

A physical book, but the PDF is being sent out first.

I really hope that deadline is met, for the sake of you guys that paid. But, I still have tremendous doubts.

He sent out an email today saying there is a two days delay... So Monday it will hopefully be out. I have hopes that he tells the truth this time. My only concern is the content. Is there contributions from Weber, McBride, Brookings and others as he promised? And is this book written in a hurry? I hope it is not a rushed project as he has had 6 years to finish the book.

You do get the book as well - as he could be saving money if there is no actual book just some pdf he's knocked out to shut everyone up

I am NEVER purchasing ANYTHING from this guy - WOW!

There seems to be a disproportion level of vendors in the mentalism field of unscrupulous vendors Rick Roth, Bob Cassidy, Marc Strivings and now this clown.

And they all make top of the line stuff, the best, I don't get it.

BREAKING NEWS! I quote Mark: "Just a quick message with the news you may have thought would never come - MR3 is finished."


"IS finished". If he is only sending a PDF instead of sending a book, why the wait from the 15th to the 28th? Does it take 13 days to warm up his email sending finger? Now there's an extra two day delay on top of the six years?? I wonder if that could be because it isn't actually finished.

Didn't think it could, but this just gets worse.

Genuine question, are there people still excited to read this book for it's own sake? Or is it more a case of just getting something for your money?

No, that's how long it will take him to get to the Cayman Island were he can not be extradited.

To be fair........

Finishing a book - and it being ready to send out, are two different things.

Finishing a book – means completing it, as in writing it all…

But – after completing the book – you then need to do lots of things to it… which can go from formatting to proof reading and many other bits and bobs.

It would be normal for there to be weeks of work needed [for any reasonably long/normal sized book]

So it is not strange for it to not be ready to send straight away – or for that same person to think they can polish it up in a few days, but it then takes longer…

I’m not on his side, I’m just saying the assumption that finishing a book means its ready to send out, is not correct…

If your assumption was instead that the author was in fact a weasel – then after 5+ years you could be spot-on

At this point everyone who paid REAL money would I believe accept a rough draft PDF.
Bad spelling; poor grammar, warts and all!

Tim, the whole situation is ridiculous.

What I mean, is this guy is out of excuses, he need to delivered anything right now.
With understanding of eventually sending what he promised and took money for.

I have seen the same thing happen in the past with Bob Cassidy, and currently with Rick Roth of Outlaw Effects. The results were the same, you'll never see the product. Say good-by to your hard earn cash.

BTW- publicly shaming these guy's never works. But everyone in mentalism community needs to know about Rick's and the others so they can avoid the same dilemma.

Calm down now. I have never been this optimistic regarding the progress.

I don't understand why it would have taken him longer to send out PDFs of the whole book on Friday than just the first chapter?

I also know of at least 2 other projects that he's at least 6 months late delivering. I will never order from Elsdon again.

Obviously because the rest of the book was one of these:

a) not written [least likely]
b) not proof read [edited/corrected]
c) not formatted

It's kind of pretty obvious why someone might be able to send one chapter and not the rest

Pay £100 for a book and get one chapter as a PDF 6 years later, bargain! 😆
