This is Watkins' third book. I saw that he released it on Facebook last night and I decided to get a copy right away. Anyone who has read his other books knows that his work is hard hitting and incredibly practical. The material is great for walk around and close up mentalism.

I decided to to come on quickly and let the community know that the first part of the book is worth the $60 price of admission. It focuses on billet work, switches, center tear ideas, and his "Failed Psychometry" principle.
Along with the text you will get some video links to performances and explanations.

All in all, just that section alone gets a 10/10 from me.

You can pick up a copy directly from Watkins at watkinsmentalism@gmail.com

I am enjoying this book so much. There are definitely hints of Cassidy and Kenton peppered throughout. Watkins' work on dual reality is brilliant, especially when touching on some of his subtleties with the "Challenge Cards".

The method behind getting the secret information is not as important as what you actually do with that information and how you reveal it, which is a subject heavily covered in the book.

Also how you justify using a billet and the justification behind tearing it up is also covered extensively, adding to information from his positive/negative release.

The subtleties are what really make this book a 10 for me. "PIN CODE #2" had me smiling ear to ear when I read it.

You can tell he has performed this material hundreds of thousands of times.

More than 5 times a day for the last one hundred years, a sure sign of quality Smile

Now that is funny LOL.

I was impressed with Watkins earlier releases so I'll have to pick this up. He has very solid reasoning behind his methods. I like his style alot. I found his routines clear and direct and most importantly very believable to who he is performing to.

Watkins and I discuss his third book on my "Remote Viewing" pandemic interview series here:

https://www.facebook.com/100000216024309......7879223/

I'm a huge fan of Watkins. I wouldn't be surprised if he's performed the things in the book five times a day for the last hundred years! It's always a blast getting to run into him in NYC.

I think Shadowplay is the closest thing to a walk-around Mentalism Masterclass that I've ever seen. I'm pretty sure you'll get plenty of stuff that you'll actually perform, but the book will also get your mind going and adjusting things you currently perform.

I got an early copy due to one or two of my effects being mentioned in the book as some form of inspiration, so my copy didn't have the video links yet, so I can't comment on them.
