I believe every single person that has ever been given an object to hide in their hand has had the thought of putting it in their back pocket. Knowing this, we have an extra moment of ďknowingĒíduring the routine. If you can routine it to speak to this you donít have to worry about not knowing. Learn to read your audience. I know...you still get jerks sometimes... thatís life. Watch my TEDxHKUST (stuart palm). You will see how to take advantage of this. Generally the reaction of the audience will tell you if they put it in their pocket. Also, women have the thought of putting it in their pocket also, but are slightly less likely to have a back pocket especially if youíre working evening formal type events.

I'm a collector of the which hand method.

Thereís also a great subtlety in Tequila Hustler iirc that addresses the pocketing of the coin/object concern. Itís a preemptive subtlety which works incredibly well.

Don't buy this book.

I have been using this method for a while it's fantastic, it's one of the best things I have ever learned to use for mentalism performance.
I hate that this book is coming out...
Of course, I have ordered it because it is now the only method I regularly use for my Which Hand routine and I very much look forward to reading Tim's full volume of notes on how he performs with it. You can watch the way I use it in the clip below. I have owned a few different things to aid in this type of act over the years, each of these other methods was at least double the price of this book and I now don't need any of them and some are broken anyhow.

Not having to ever use those devices again has been a fantastic liberation.

Don't buy this book.

Don't buy this book unless you want the satisfaction of feeling completely congruent with what you are doing and what you are saying you are doing in this type of routine.

Sorry, I bought the book.

Fantastic performance.

Apologies for the late reply gents, it has been super busy this end since the MINDS conference last week. I am happy to say that all orders for the book only placed through until Friday evening have all been posted. All orders for the book and accessory pack have been labeled up and I am just waiting for the decks to arrive (which are expected to land on Wednesday of this coming week). The moment the decks land I will begin shipping them out.

For those who missed out on getting the accessory packs please do not worry, I have ordered when I realised the interest in them was so high and expect them to land in stock in a couple of weeks time. The moment these land I will email everyone who ordered the book only with the link to buy the accessory kit should they wish to do so.

Best Wishes Michael

I should also add that inside the book Timon does address the participant playing the coin in the pocket too Smile

I have also finally got on top of the 2700 emails (no joke) that came in over the past week so should anyone have any questions on this book or their order, please donít hesitate to ask, I am here to help Smile

Written by Timon Krause, produced by Michael Murray and printed by Haresign press. Does it need more of a review than that?

Copy number 407 received today and first off: the included letter to crediting letter was phenomenally written. The first page was incredibly thoughtful and it has only gotten better when I read the welcome section. I can tell that this book is going to blow me away by the prose alone.

His exact words ĎOnce you have become profficient with this you will never need the m****t detector again 😉í

Mine arrived too. Hatís off to Haresign press. The design is top notch (for me nothing can top the cover to Atlas Brookings Rouge Manual to Deception)

The writing style is clear, concise and witty (when appropriate). Iím only a few pages in, but Iím already smirking at what lies ahead. I can see this becoming the go-to method for which hand in many circumstances.

I agree with Michael. The method is brilliant and a real ďduhĒ moment when you first read it but having futzed around with which hand for years now (I first did this using a marketed effect where your ear did the work Smile ), even though reading Timonís method is a real ďduhĒ moment, without Timon explaining all the nuances that he has acquired throughout the years it would not be workable with such reliability.

After chewing on this all night, I honestly believe that this method will eventually replace fl*x for me as even with what I have been using that for (controlling the ďoutcomeĒ), Timonís method actually also allows me to do this. I have only read the method portion of the book and canít wait to dig into the scripting for his actual routines!

... tore the box open and read the first few sections. I could not wait try it. I was 80-90% on my first live practice set (with my son). I must have tried to guess 11 or 12 times and missed twice (which were totally my fault). I am so happy right now. I canít wait to work through the book and practice some more. Thank you Timon.

So this is also good for casual strolling then? It seemed a stage piece with the final prediction. Please tell me no so I'm not looking for reasons to click buy (if you still can).

Expected to receive Phasma first as I placed my order for that before this one, but I received this book from Mind FX today.
Unfortunately have not had a chance to look through it yet but hopefully this weekend.

The routine that he did for P&T is just that, a full routine using the Which Hand method. The prediction portion is in and of itself a method for the prediction itself, not Which Hand. You can use his Which Hand method for any which hand routine you wish to use it in as the method is just that, allowing you to guess which hand a object is being held in My the spectator. Itís not a convoluted method. Itís completely impromptu. Youíre doing it for real as there is no mechanical manipulation involved nor is there any verbal manipulation involved. The book goes into great detail about scripting and things like motivation for the moments you are gleaning the information you need to know which hand the object is in. This is to camouflage the method (not that the method is obvious, itís sort of like a psychological misdirection since one of the key to any great piece of magic includes being able to cancel out methods your audience may come up with on their own let that be them guessing the actual method or any method regardless of how ridiculous it may be, a presumed method makes a effect remembered more as a puzzle in the end rather than a point of pure astonishment, in this instance however in the main routine Timon gives you his full script for, heís giving you his full script where the plot is influence so you are intentionally leading the audience down the wrong solution path for both theatrical purposes as well as psychological misdirection away from the actual method). The method itself is essentially invisible and lacking any real process so this is as clean as it gets. You can use it to perform Timonís routine from P&T (hopefully you would tweak it enough to make it your own rather than just copying it verbatim) or you can use it to perform things similar to Colinís work on which hand.

This essentially replaces fl*x for me as a method for which hand. This also replaces tequila hustler for me as well as this is cleaner and much easier for the audience to follow along. Iíve tried Timonís method out a few times now after learning it from the book and itís quite easy as long as you follow Timonís best practices advice. Itís so easy to learn and practice in fact (if you apply his best practice advice) that Iím actually glad I didnít buy the accessory pack because I donít think itís really necessary. I do however know that some people like to practice something on their own until they are fully capable confident with the material before ever trying it out on actual live people so for them, I can understand and see how the accessory pack would provide excellent value (mainly the deck of practice cards).
