Thanks RASP I'm pleased that you liked it Smile

The regular edition is all complete and is being prepped for print. I am away camping for three days and whilst I'm there I will be finishing the remainder of the limited edition content. This will then be proofed and be sent to print early next week. I trust that you will love what you read Smile

Best Wishes Michael

Hey Michael,

As I keep saying, relax and take your time!

The longer you take, the more "goodies" get added to the limited edition so most of us are more than happy to wait for the finished product.

You can take another month to finish as far as I'm concerned.

Enjoy your holidays, you have earned them.

Happy camping Michael!

Just waiting for a delivery date from the printers for the regular edition.

The limited edition isn't far from reaching them too.

RASP, thanks for the kind words, feedback from my proof readers has been highly positive so far so I'm quite excited go this to reach everyone and hear what you all think Smile

Keep up the good work Michael (and your proof readers)!

I'm sure it will be worth the wait, no matter how long it takes.

I hope to have the delivery date of the regular edition tomorrow and then the pre-order price will end.

The pre-order price on the limited edition will stand for the moment until I get a confirmed delivery date on that one too (this is likely to be under a week though).

I will keep you all in the loop Smile

The limited edition content is presently being proofed and I should have this back, amended and off to print early next week. Here is a glimpse at some of the limited edition content that awaits -

Here is a glimpse at some of the extras which are in store Smile

The Observatory - Teach a spectator how to discern which hand an item is being held in using nothing but body language tells. Best of all you can leave them to talk afterwards.

Your Intuition (by Peter Turner) - A powerful routine previously unpublished where a spectator is able to correctly discern your PIN code.

Orchestration - A method where by a spectator can discern which side a coin will end up on whilst in their own hands. This can also be used to control almost any 50/50 out.

My First Letter Ploy - This is my method for gaining the first letter for use with MOABT.

It's Your Call - A method for allowing your spectator to correctly reveal a word/object or drawing that another spectator has chosen.

Fragments of my Imagination - A series of thoughts and ideas for some commercially available items.

Think a Drink - A spectator correctly intuits a drink that you are merely thinking of.

Jazz Mentalism (by Dave Humpfrey) - One of the strongest five for five ESP match ups ever created (this was my most used ESP effect up until the creation of Tattle Tailed (Which is also in the book)).

Crowd Control - A method for implanting thoughts and controlling your spectators actions, all without saying a word.

Family Ties - A super strong routine which proves that fate may truly control our actions.

Cold Reading as Mind Reading - A subtle change of focus provides a dramatic change in context.

Just finished proof reading the extras for the limited edition book.

Thought it would be easy to express my thoughts on this wonderful treatise, but in fact I'm lost for words.

Michael has a way of looking at things, solving puzzles, creating effects and routines in a unique and sublime manner. He also has an uncanny ability to take existing ideas (always with the creators blessing) streamlining them, and in the process takes them to another level.

This is definitely a book that deserves to sit on your bookshelf next to Corinda and Annemann.

Only 300 of the limited edition books are being printed, of which Michael has reserved 100 for those that expressed a definite interest. There are now only TWENTY copies left to purchase!!

Sounds great!

And THANK YOU Michael for taking the time to add so much great material to the limited edition book rather than rushing it out last month to meet your original "deadline."

Can't wait to get it!

I can't properly express the level of respect I have for Michael. His stuff is excellent. This is the sort of book that will improve your mentalism, and his ideas will stimulate your own.

His work is both beautiful and inherently versatile.

His work regularly makes appearances in my performances.

And much as I respect his thinking, it pales in comparison to the magnitude of his personality. Watching him perform is always a treat: Modelled (perhaps unconsciously) on the old time con men, he is a fast-talking, smooth operating, devious trickster that charms you while making his miracles and leaves you so disoriented that you end up wondering if maybe the Sun circles the Earth after all. He was built to run rings around every other performer working the trade show market.

Anyway, the point is that if you are on the fence about Michael's work, don't be. Get this book. It is something that you'll revisit constantly.

Best,

Atlas
