Phase 1: START SIMPLE

The performer attempts to read a spectator's mind.

The performer displays a stack of index cards / business cards / napkins. Each card has an emotionally-charged word written on it. The cards are mixed. A spectator is asked to select one of the cards and remember a time they felt that emotion.

The performer begins to vicariously experience the emotion... vaguely at first... almost like a psychic reading... but the performer gets more and more specific and eventually names the emotion exactly.

Phase 2: BUILD ON IT

The performer attempts to transfer his/her psychic abilities to a spectator.

One spectator selects an emotion card and thinks about a time in his/her life when he/she experienced that emotion.

With the performer's help, a second spectator is able to intuit the emotion the first spectator is thinking of and name it exactly.

Phase 3: MAKE IT MEANINGFUL

The performer attempts to name specific details from a spectator's life.

The cards are mixed. A spectator removes one of the emotion cards. The performer asks the spectator to think of a specific name and a time period they associate with the emotion they have chosen.

The performer removes a notepad and pen. One-by-one the performer writes down the specific details he/she is sensing from the spectator's life. The performer is specific. His/her intuitions are committed to writing so there can be no mistake.

The performer is accurate to a degree that proves shocking to the spectator. This is an emotionally-CHARGED climax that can go in many directions. The performer is guaranteed three hits.

A Framework for Cold Reading

EI provides the performer with three phases and five guaranteed "hits". The methods Luke teaches are surefire and can be depended upon in performance. EI does not rely upon cold reading or guesswork.

That said, EI is ALSO an ideal framework for cold reading. Within the context of EI, performers can apply cold reading techniques without fear of failure. The three-phase structure of the routine and the FIVE GUARANTEED REVEALS ensure a great performance regardless of the accuracy of the cold reading.

"I wish I had a routine like EI when I was learning cold reading." -- Luke Jermay

Hear me out on this(Luke's best and strongest trick) Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 6th, 2008
I've been a member of Penguin Magic for quite a while now, and I know for a fact that Luke gets some serious criticism for his previous tricks displayed on Penguin. We have a tendency to look at his smooth and unique handling of a fundamental trick as too basic or impractical, which are things that Luke has shown himself aren't true. But, I digress.

Whatever you think of his other videos, whether you liked them or not, this blows every single one of them out of the water. this is the strongest three-phase mentalism routine I have ever laid my eyes upon, and I've been practicing street magic with a concentration on mentalism for four years now, going down to Mexico every year to work with the locals. the effects are as strong as they show it to be in the trailer. The build and climax are a perfect fit. this is Mentalism at it's finest point.

The video's production isn't something to scoff at, either. The effects/transitions fit well with the style, and Jermay's teaching is his best yet. This is Penguin's best, and I will stand by that.

There's always some harsh critics out there out to get Jermay, but I ask you to please take what they say with a "grain of salt".

This is Brilliant.
This is Simple.
This is Mentalism at it's finest.
This is Luke Jermay.

I have been purchasing Penguin Magic for many years now. I rarely, if ever, write a review for a product. Although I am content with most of the things I buy here, I just had to stop by and write a review.
This material is amazing. I have always been interested in mentalism. However, nail writers, sloppy methods, and memorization have shied me away from it. However, these methods explained on the DVD make mentalism practical anywhere.
Luke is a brilliant teacher on this DVD. He is very thorough and precise in his teaching. He does offer even more advice which is invaluable. YOU HAVE TO GET THIS! I cannot recommend it enough. However, I want to get greedy and have no one but me know this three-phase routine. SO actually, don't add to cart. DO NOT BUY! I want it all to myself.

Not just a Trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 8th, 2008
I never write a review for my tricks but i always read them before i get a trick, now this this is not just a 3 phase trick that you go out and perform a couple of times and wait for the next penguin video that comes out. Luke teaches you a whole framework of mentalism, he actuly gives you many methods that you can apply on any other trick, ive actuly made my own tricks today just on these methods i learned. I saw the DVD download last night and went out to a club, there some friends asked me to do some impromtu mentalism, this is what i did, i actuly ran out of business card because all the people there were so amazed, this is more than just a trick this is a philosophy that you can apply to your future mental acts, the actual learning is only about 50 min, but this is a 2 hour and 30 min, video so you actuly get 1 and 40 min of other mentalism stuff, a whole section just on cold reading so i have 3 words for you ADD TO CART you wont regret it trust me.

I'll start off by saying, it wasnt "great", but wasnt "bad" either. Very shocked and disappointed at the method. All I can say, is it was nothing really "new". Now on to the not so bad parts. I love hearing Luke's philosophies and way of thinking. It was almost like having a mini-lecture on this DVD, which I very much enjoyed. Ill give it a thumbs up, only because there's no "in between" rating available.

Luke Jermay is by far my favorite magician. I own all of his material. I would have to say the minute I downloaded the video I knew how it was done. This disappointed me because I spent a good chunk of change. There is also a version on 7 deceptions. I liked the trick but would give it an ok rating. The bonus of this effect is all the other information he's giving out that go along with the trick creating different possibilities. Good but not the greatest. Still worth adding to cart to listen and watch jermay which is a treat in itself.

Mentalism doesn't get any better! This is Luke at his very best and the material on this dvd is devastating. What you will learn can be applied to so many various effects and the sky is the limit. Use your imagination and you can use this as one of the most powerful mentalism routines ever! What can I say guys, this is absolutely bloomin awesome! This is what mentalism is about...
This is Luke Jermay.

OH!MY!GOD! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 14th, 2008
THIS EFFECT IS A TRUE MIRACLE. I'm serious if you don't have the money than just sell your clothing because the reputation you'll get is incredible. I got over 5 shows booked just for doing this effect to around 20 or so at a bar. IT IS THAT GOOD. IF you wanted to start a religion this is what you'd do! Never buy anything else, forget all you've ever learned about mentalism and throw away those magic books kids this is all you need! PLEASE TAKE MY ADVICE...buy it, buy it, oh and one more thing...BUY IT!

brilliant...stunning...powerful Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 15th, 2008
although the techniques aren't a big revolution or brand new it's how they are presented in such a way that it is an art, a miracle. Believe me it's well, even if you know the technique and have your own thing just try to forget it and buy this. the way luke teaches it the way all this stuff is done IT WILL impress. if you like reactions maybe not the best mostly because your going to covering your ears from the scream from the shock or maybe no reaction because they simply cant speak after seeing it.
This is hard hitting mentalism with an "emotional" hook. What ever you do don't let this slip through your hand.
luke jermay all the way!

Creative mind! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 18th, 2008
Luke is for sure one of the most creative magician/mentalist in the modern days. The methods here are not new, in fact they are kind of old, but the ideas that Luke used to present and put those long-existent techniques together definitely make this routine a great work. The routine itself is not my favorite, but this routine allows me to explore the way Luke thinks, how he creates, and how he applies his ideas in real world, which is what I like to see and to learn - Be a real creative magician.

The bottom line is, if you are looking for a mind blowing one-of-a-kind killer routine, this may disappoint you. But if you want to learn how a great mind works and what a real creative magician thinks like, this is definitely an "Add To Cart" item.
