Though there is a thread in Inner Thoughts dedicated to this book, PRODIGY PEEK by Fränz has not been shared here.

To borrow from the ad...
"WHAT IS THE PRODIGY PEEK?

The Prodigy Peek is a groundbreaking concept for close-up mentalism that will allow you to read minds and predict your spectators' thoughts with ease. It’s practical, deceptive and extremely versatile. The Prodigy Peek is ideal for walkaround performances, but it can easily be used on big stages as well.

WHAT PRODIGY PEEK OFFERS:

an amazing, fast-paced routine that involves 2-3 spectators
a perfect justification as to why the thought needs to be written down
structural misdirection to gain your peek
great control over critical angles
fast and easy reset"

Also, Nique Tan has a great video review of this book

This is something that has become an EDC for me.

Thanks for sharing, Wravyn! I had not yet spotted this. Very interesting. How does it play? Can you compare it to other routines, esp. in terms of reactions of the audience?

If you already use a CT or peek wallet for gathering your information, you can understand the reactions one can achieve. Prodigy Peek is a wonderfully constructed routine which has justification for why we have things written down.
Myself, I had a difficult time in my own mind with the 'write and put here' aspect of routines; if I am reading minds, why the need for them to write it down and place it in my wallet or tear it up? This release has brought a solution.

If you access to the inner thoughts section, see what others have said.

Thanks! Will check. I use t rex all the time. But hey, if something else is worthwhile to learn as well I’m always interested…

Oh wait… I just checked and I already took part in that topic quite a while ago. I just didn’t recognize the name of the routine. Well, at least I am consistent… 😂😂😂

Can this be adapted to one on one or is it necessary to involve multiple spectators?

Is there an advantage to this over Lewis Le Val's Mana? Seems like a similar premise?

I was wondering about this as well.
The ad copy mentions using 2 or 3 spectators.

You could probably adapt the core principle for a one-on-one performance. However, the Prodigy Peek and its variations explained in the book involve at least two spectators. In my experience, this is actually an advantage as the routine plays much bigger because of it.

No doubt about it. But being amateur I mostly perform one on one and rarely for multiple people. That's why I'm asking.

Yes, it is possible for one on one performance.

Does anyone except Penguin stock this? Ideally in the UK?

Penguin quote over $40 for shipping which is more than the price of the book, unless you go for the 2-6 week option which is potentially a loooong wait!

Hi guys,
on my website you can find an overview of the different purchase options:

https://wunderwinkel.de/english/prodigypeek/where_to_buy/

Please note that Prodigy Peek is not listed on Lulu. You can only buy it there by following the link on my website.

If you're still undecided, check out the latest review by Chris Edwards. I think he kind of likes it 😉 .



Best regards
F.

I’ve just watched the Chris Edwards video review of this. It seems like a great project with tons of potential for all performing scenarios.
