"Why is this called The Elvis Peek?"
Because there have been numerous Elvis "Sightings" for the past 40-years.

If this is about Elvis Costello (the other 'Elvis") it could be because he was signed to "Stiff" records.

I was fortunate enough to get a preview copy of this and although I loved his previous work, I already had 2 great full view p**ks I've been using for several years. I know we all search for that one ******r t**r that is better than the rest and that one full p**k that is better as well. It seems that most suffer from unusual "procedure" in some ways. Yes, I'm able to justify it well enough to work but it always locks me into a certain pattern that is required to make everything work. The Elvis Peek solves all of that in such an elegant solution that I can use it in so many ways to switch it up depending on the routine or even situation on the fly. My others also always required such a quick view that it was ok for a small word, number or VERY simple drawing but drew too much heat for anything more complex. This solves all of that giving you chance to get a full question or more complex drawing with ease! I'll admit that I can't see using any other method after this. Without going into too many details, they write something down on a card, they insert it anywhere in a stack of cards (On the table if you want), they mix the cards, you have them visualize it and then give them the answer. It's clean, adaptable and very deceptive. Yes, it took a few minutes to make up the first time (VERY basic) but that's it! This will clearly be my new go to method. Thank you for the thinking and care that went into this wonderful new release!

Stunninger was kind enough to send me a copy and it's what we've come to expect.
Practical, workable simple and direct. His explanations are consistently easy to follow and well paced.
Recently I've been using full card peeks more often and appreciate not having to rush that special moment. This gives you plenty of time and is about as straight forward as it gets.
Bills engaging routine justifies the moment perfectly, and has a built in time delay.
This is something I'll absolutely be using.
Bill is the humble opposite of a squeaky wheel, but anything he offers is worth paying close attention too. This is a no brainer to have in the arsenal.
Thanks tons for sharing Stunninger I'm excited to put this to use.

Oh! I hope this isn't tipping too much but..
It's called the Elvis Peek due to a cover move involving fake side burns and gyrating. The core idea traces back to the very situational Bob Hope peek in 13 Steps I believe.

Can't sleep so I'll toss an entry into the bucket: It's called the Elvis Peek, because Elvis "Peaked" in 1961 with his "Something for Everybody" album, which is the same year that 13 Steps was published as a book. The coincidence is simply too strong, and because the "Elvis Peek" is also "something for everybody" it just works.

This is, of course, wrong, but someone else beat me to trying to make it about Elvis Costello, so I ran out of ideas. I'm not even going to try to work out a connection to baseball player Elvis Andrus.

"Why is this called The Elvis Peek?"

"Elvis" is a shortcut from the spanish term "el vistazo" which means something like "the sight", "the insight".

It's because you take the peek after it 'leaves the building'

Was sent the Elvis Peek by Stunninger and as is the case with his other material - the directions are thorough, the method is simple and the actions are motivated. In the context of how Bill is presenting it, everything feels natural and will go unnoticed. Nice work Stunninger! The hits keep coming.

When Elvis appeared on the Ed Sullivan show they filmed him from the waist up such was the sheer sexual provocativeness of his gyrating hips.

With this peek, the main misdirection is your gyrating hips as you channel the supposedly hidden information. It's the only way.

I am sure the clarity of Stunninger's peek will dispel any 'Suspicious Minds.'
