I received mine last Friday, and I'm way out on the Left Coast.

My book is #46.

Great book, full of great ideas and tips based on real world experience.

The eagle has landed. Looking forward to reading the two books. I’m about half way through the first book and am rather enjoying the stories. Looch's stripper story had me laughing out loud.

Very nice books. I don’t know why but I smell books when I open them. These books have a unique smell that if I ever smell anywhere again will make me remember the time I was absorbed in The Black Project.

Good times.

Thanks Looch.

I'm extremely happy that you guys are receiving your copies and subsequently enjoying them. I look forward to hearing more of your thoughts once you have had time to digest their contents.

A couple of people have contacted me regarding the price of the book on the site.

I appreciate its not a cheap book, and when The Black Project was released several people who have bought my material for years independently got in touch and requested a little more time to put the money together to be able to purchase it. Each of these requests were fair and genuine and as a result I said yes, I didn't want people missing out (especially those that had supported my work for years) just because their current situation dictated that they couldn't purchase at the time of the introduction.

as a result I am currently extending the introductory price until midnight on Sunday 16th August. At that point the general sale price WILL take over

Please note: Only the preorders will get access to Hangar 18 (Not the current orders, that was the deal) so if you want to take advantage of the introductory price do so before the 16th

Thank you for your understanding Smile

Just got mine in New York. Beautiful looking set of books. I am confident that what is written between the covers will be jsut as impressive as the covers themselves.

I've had my copy for a week or so and have been struggling to put it down! Soon as I opened the packaging I thought "wow", as it's such a stunningly beautiful set of books. I've found myself saying "wow" again several times when reading it! It's also brilliantly written and very easy to read.

I'm absolutely thrilled with my purchase and feel it's well worth every penny. If anyone is on the fence about getting this, I strongly suggest you do so before they sell out, as I'm sure they will.

I'm very proud to have this in my library and am excited about using several of the routines and I'm only on book 1 so far...

I've just finished book 1 and this has satisfied my purchase already... And I've got a second book to devour now!!!. There are many working mentalists out there who have no doubt spent a combined small fortune on eBooks that promised so much but provided so little and ultimately left you disappointed.

Here TBP is brimming with valuable (and blooming astonishing) working routines, ideas and stories. Plus this is a beautifully produced hard bound book set and you could always sell and get a return once you feel you've fished with it.

Like Iain I too had many WOW moments reading the first vol. I just have read the 1st effect in Vol 2.. If you perform or want to perform a bank night type effect Looch has just set a new gold standard.

10/10 so far for Vol 1

I have used my week off well, and finished TBT

I made a short post earlier as I'd got into book 1 and was already happy with my purchase.

Now having finished book 2 I am even more certain that buying this was a good move.

What did it for me in terms of making it value for money?

Quality? well you would be hard pressed to find a better book anywhere in terms of quality of manufacture.
Effects? of course there are great effects described in silky ink flowing across velvet pages (OK enough of that I think)
Essays? it's great to read episodes from real world situations, and to learn form other peopl's successes and mistakes.

Mostly I think it's Looch's style of operation I like.
No histrionics,
No flash bang look at me,
Just easy, hard-hitting effects presented with the minimum of fuss.

260 quid well spent as far as I'm concerned.

So before the book went out we had a few individuals post complaining about the cost of the book, etc. They said they would never buy a book for this price. Now the actual book is out and the most important reviews are in from the individuals who actually paid their hard earned money for the book (including myself). Each and every post of an actual purchaser appears to be beyond satisfied---to me these are the comments and reviews that mean something. Well done Looch!

I'm genuinely overwhelmed at your feedback guys. As I'm sure you are all aware TBP was a labour of love and me at my most honest. My best work is in there with every little subtlety and nuance thrown in for completion. One of the most difficult decisions was to include my working repertoire in there. Its difficult to open yourself up and give the pieces away that you use week in week out to earn a living. By doing this it has ignited a creative fuse and pushing me into developing new material for shows! In a way I feel more creative now than Ive ever been Smile

Kind regards

I'm really enjoying TBP so far (with only one extremely minor little niggle). As fuller reviews come out I'm sure that more will join the bandwagon.

Plus, we've got Hanger 18 to look forward to once access is granted; I admit to a little frisson of excitement waiting for the unlocking.

We're having a magic jam tonight (magic and mentalism combined) at our local watering hole for a group of knowledgeable (and working) performers; they will definitely be asking about 2Minds and The Black Project. I'm looking forward to their questions!
