The book has some billets on it and all the copies are signed. I donít want to ruin the experience.

I prefer to refund your money, than giving a digital version.

I will refund your money and you will still get the book. Iím so sorry about this. I have sent all packages on time. I have photos of each of them being sent. We are living a very interesting moment in history.

Can you please PM your email so I can refund immediately? You can pay me when you get the book if you enjoy it if not no problem.

Stay safe and be well brothers.

I heard my local area's post office is operating with 15% of their staff. Im guessing its similar across the board. It's super annoying for us waiting for stuff, trust me I know, Im still waiting for several packages to arrive Smile Safety first and all that!

Hope everyone gets their stuff soon!

Take care,
Dan

A package I ordered from Penguin took a mighty long time - far, far longer than usual. But it did eventually arrive.

These are strange times - it is just a case of being patient, taking care and keeping safe.

I'm still waiting too. Frustrating, but I will try to be patient.

If ANYONE receives a book, please post here to let us know.

I am tracking the package. Finally saw some movement. Still in Mexico, but was accepted by a facility. So there is movement!

I just noticed today that I was sent the PDF as well, so I'll share my first impressions (despite only a quick read through, and being strictly amateur).

The negative for me first, is that the ad copy begins by saying something about 'nothing beyond a piece of paper and a pencil, which is what I was interested in. Only 1 (I believe) of the methods taught uses just a pencil and piece of paper. I don't think the copy is misleading because it doesn't say that's what's involved, but it strongly implied it to me, and means that none of the techniques are of any use to me.
My other negative is that I'm sure I've seen some of the techniques before, including the one with 1 piece of paper, though I couldn't say if the handling was the same.
I'm well aware of how magic products work and what to expect (variations and slight improvements rather than amazing new techniques that let you see inside a person's mind) but for the money I was expecting a bit more innovation.

Into the positive though, everything claimed in the ad copy seems to be true. Everything seems pretty solid and I'd be shocked if it hasn't all been used a hundred times by Josť (no pipe dream stuff).
I really liked the 2nd section (?) which is like an illustrated bullet point list of presentational angles and reveals, I'd buy a whole book of that for all kinds of techniques! The art is nice as well, very clear and I think pretty stylish.
The essay section had some good ideas, that was good reading too.

it's very clear that Josť has a lot of confidence in his ideas, which is conveyed and passed on through the text. Especially combined with his offers of refunds and sending out these PDFs, he very clearly believes in his product and I'd have total confidence in buying his products in the future.

I'm still not sure where I sit in regards to the book, for me personally I didn't really get much I'll use and it was a lot of money, but on the other hand it's obvious the care and pride that Josť takes in his work (not a rush job or half-assed cash-in) and I'm pretty confident that some people will find some really awesome material to elevate their work.

Best billet book Iíve read.

ďThis is one of the most amazing books Iíve read about modern billet techniques. Everything is practically self-working technically speaking. Worth every single cent.Ē

Iím currently working on a book just about reveals! 100 + reveals and presentational angles all fully illustrated.
You will love it!

A new review was posted today at e-mentalism.com

YOU HAVE TO READ IT!
James on Jun 08, 2020
ďI never liked mentalism routines with billets but after I read the material of this book I totally changed my mind.

This book is a must have! Just imagine: you are out for dinner, one of your best client recognize you and approach you to say Hi, then he ask you to perform something for his friends, your phone is dead, the cards are at home, you canít risk with propless mentalism, what do you do?

Well if you read the material in this book youíll be able to perform miracles with two of the most common object in the world, business cards and a pen, and the best part is that everything is direct and sure fire.Ē

This is excellent.

Great book that gets straight to the point with many highly practical ideas that I'm excited to use. Besides offering several great new techniques for peeking, Jose offers his thoughts on how to work existing peeks, like the AN, to get more out of them (there's a wonderful ploy here that conceptually turns the AN into a full billet peek).

One of my favorite non-peek pieces is what feels a littke bit like a PIN guess using two secret digits - very cool bit of knowledge at work here.

Didn't find anything at all that felt like fluff. It's all very practical, workable and well though-out. This counts among the (much!) better mentalism books I've read lately.

Highly recommended.

Cheers,

T.

I too have just received the printed book and have just finished reading the first section. This is really excellent material and have already come away with an approach I will definitely be using.

Also, pleasingly, the book is well-produced and illustrated. It is a real delight to read and I can see this becoming a classic as far as billet reading and handling is involved.

Jose has done a brilliant job.
