This is really good stuff. Here's my two cents on each trick:
TOUCHING ON HOY: It's a little risky, but pure "mind candy" if done right.
DANGEROUS OPENER: Finally, a Russian Roulette without risk!
PRE SHOW SCRIPTING: Not really a trick, just some good ways to get more information from the spectator without them noticing.
PSYCHIC VS PSYCOLOGICALl: An awesome essay on how Luke makes sure that his show satisfies both the believers and non-believers of of the sixth sense.
BLOWING BUBBLES: Sure fire way to make a spectator forget exactly what they were focusing on. I believe that this was also featured in Building Blocks.
PHONE PREDICTION: Not as clever as I thought would be, but I do think that I will use this.
PK LIPSTICK: A great twist on the "Ash/lipstick from your palm to theirs" thing that Criss Angel did.
BLINDFOLD SEQUENCE: I really like this one. It uses a couple gimmicks, but you could find 'em here on Penguin for under .
OVERALL: This is really something that you need to get if you do pretty much any mentalism. I also recommend 7 deceptions.

The thinking behind the effects in this book aren't terrible by any means... a little too derivative perhaps, but certainly ok. The problem for me is that just about everything in the book is predicated on dual reality or pre-show work. There's nothing inherently bad about that, but my own personal bias is that I prefer effects than are more direct and designed such that they don't require these sorts of crutches.
If this isn't a problem for you, you may find some workable ideas in here. But for me, I honestly don't think I found even one.

I like Luke Jermay. Maybe it's that bias that makes me think everything he puts out is fantastic. I like the creativity and complex thought that goes into his work. I haven't actually used any of this material because of the set-up that goes in. i like a more limited setup or off the cuff style of mentalism. This is a great read though. For fans of Luke Jermay this is a must own. If you are not yet sold on his greatness, then it wouldn't hurt you to pass it up.

There is nothing more to say of Luke Jermay other than that he is a genius. This book has some genius effects that are quite reliable to perform, much more than his suggestion work. This book is basically an entire show. You are injuring yourself by not getting this. Enough said.
I prefer 3510 than this book Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
Since I've read all Luke Jermay's book that can be found in Penguin Magic, I think 3510 is much better than The Coral Fang. The Coral Fang is more expensive than 3510, while two of the my favourite routines in this book (Touching On Hoy & A Dangerous Opener) can be found in 3510 also. And I don't really enjoy the "The Psychic vs. Psychological Performance" chapter of the book. Besides, I never do pre-show work so "The Pre Show Scripting" chapter did not interest me. In conclusion, buy 3510 instead of this book.
Brilliant, but the presentational wording is stilted and could be more deceptive... Report this review

I love the routines in this book.
However, I'll give one example of some wording/patter
that could be greatly improved.
The way Jermay scripts Touching on Hoy,
you would probably not want to do this TOH,
and also PK Touch, in the same act.
This is because,
amazingly, Jermay uses the same wording
you would use in PKT (which makes sense in PKT)
in this routine (which is unnatural and makes no sense in TOH).
Not only does the wording sound very weird,
but I think it risks exposing the DR.
I have changed the wording from,
"I'd like the person who felt me touch them to think of..."
or "If you felt me touch you just now, think of..."
"I'd like you, the one I just touched, to think of..."
There's probably even a more natural way of saying it.

Luke Jermay always amazes me by his clever thinking. This may be a small manuscript, but it is jam-packed with GREAT mentalism that really hits anybody right between the eyes, even the skeptics. And I totally agree with the description in "Touching on Hoy": It really is the best thing in the entire book!
However, this is NOT, I repeat NOT for beginners. You need to know a few suggestion patterns, rapid inductions, etc. Before you get this, you might want to check out "Building Blocks" or "13 Steps". If you have either of those, this book will be pure gold to you.
Luke is quite possibly the best instructer ever Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 7th, 2007
I must say that everything Luke puts out is gold. The Books The Downloads The tricks and the dvd are all gold . Having Luke's name on a product is like having the kosher sign on a bottle of pickles, its good.
