While this may sound condescending, it is meant as the highest praise for Greg and Federico....These guys have WAY too much time on their hands.

The methods and concepts described with this routine are fantastic. The instructional CD-Rom is detailed, and props are supplied for gaffing your own book.

I can't specify enough how they give you the methods but it is possible to change some of them to make them more personal to you. I really enjoyed Becker and Earle's Double Vision and this takes that about 3 steps further. Unlike most book tests where you are revealing a word on one page....this allows you to describe words, drawings, serial numbers, phone numbers, pictures, etc. There are at least 5 to 6 things you can describe on each page.

This is a fantastic book test and one I am looking forward to performing.

IceKnight: I have a bunch of comments and review material and ideas in the SESSIONS need ten more posts and you'll be there!

This is a great contribution to the game and it has the ability to make you an amzing personage! While there are 6 or more things to do on each page, keep in mind you are doing two or three pages (or even more!) with EASE.
Once you set it up (a bit of work) it is good to go forever (as long as your book holds up) PLUS you can do other books in other ways and have almost a complete act out of the darn thing.

It is truely a work of genius and art. Don't delay.

And as to personalizing it to only you...this is pretty much automatic as you select your own book...BUT you can make changes in the entire process and create a 2nd book to use with entirely different information...or a bunch of books using the various methods.

I'll just say this here...the entire 12 or 18 effects you can display (on 3 pages) rests on you're having only ONE piece of information...which you easily obtain with an almopst self working ease.

I can't recommend this highly enough.

Do your 10 useful posts and see it in Sessions.

First, a big thanks to Michael & Doug for your kind words on the Freestyle... and Michael it does seem like we have a lot of time on our hands if only the medication would kick in.
To those considering Freestyle I'd like to remind you that this is a book test that first requires you to put some time into the book you are using. You won't get this effect today and perform it tonight. It takes a bit of work on your part to go through the book of your choice and start to work in the codes and ideas.
I've actually been impressed by the thinking that some of our clients are putting into their books.
I'm sure I'm going to run into them one day and they will proceed to kick my a** with their book test.
From the things I've been hearing I believe we've created a monster... but a friendly monster.

One of my favorite quotes: "A critic is a legless man who teaches running."
