Ironically maybe you should let it go? Doing a simple Google search of your name doesn't reveal much, a few people on the Café mentioning effects done on the phone, but nothing on Youtube or the likes. Contradicting yourself in my opinion.

And we can continue talking about a book if its sold out, people may discover it and want to buy second hand copies. As a matter of fact before I bought a second hand copy of TT a few weeks ago I read this entire thread through again before buying it.

Time to ask my friends for help could someone (Derek, Luca or Steve young) contact me with reference to this wonderful peice of mentalism now you have owned it for a while with any advice.
I am looking to purchase a copy from my good friend David Thiel in support of what happened, I have been in contact with David and know that I will need to contact Atlas to be approved to purchase a copy from him.

I look forward to hearing from someone soon.

Warmest regards
Rob

Just wanted to say that Atlas is not only a great thinker/creator etc.,
but a big time decent guy.
I came about appreciating his work sideways..wasn't sure what to think at first.
Then I picked up his Penguin lecture, and it was off to the races.
The more I saw/read, the more amazed and impressed I became.
I wanted TT bad, but honestly was not aware of most of these posts,
reviews, etc.
All I knew was that every single thing I had seen so far,
was progressively better/unique and complimentary to what came before.

Anyway, guess if I had a point to make, now would be the time.
I contacted Atlas about the possibility of getting a copy,
not realizing the demand for it.
I just wanted the information.
I would have taken hand written notes on scrap paper.
And, I wanted to touch base with him and express my appreciation etc. in general.
I have to say, he handled my crappy humor,
and less than thought out babbling, like a gentleman Smile
He was able to point me in the right direction,
and now I am happily awaiting a copy.

I wasn't sure if this was something I should post.
I didn't want to return his favor,
by indirectly adding to his headaches.
(I.e. More pains like me harassing him)
But, I hope this is vague enough to minimize that possibility,
yet clear enough to speak to his character.
And if anyone still has an interest in a few months,
maybe I'll be able to toss my review/impressions in the ring here.
But to parot other reviewers,
In my experience, if Atlas releases it its gold.

All the best fellow mental cases Smile

You should have tried going on the Podcast thread and telling everyone that Ken dele... I mean, tell them that the recording accidentally got deleted again, so it will be another month before episode 8...

Atlas, I have a feeling you are a man to be avoided (much like Ebola) on April 1st Smile

Finally, after a lot of dilly-dally, I've decided to make just 3 photocopies of my TT and offer it for sale for just $499 each. Any takers?

Hey RexDeash,

Thanks for your 'interest' and calling the bluff. Just a little bit of fun, I thought Smile

I just checked on this thread and hadn't seen this comment - Funnily enough, that's exactly how I viewed it prior to releasing it!

Best,
