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

Dont listen to these negative reviews Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 23rd, 2014
I bought this several years ago and have performed it countless times and got amazing reactions. In fact after each show I've done I always had spectators come up to me after the show and tell me their thoughts on this one effect, out of the entire show, THIS was the one that stuck out to them the most. And I'm not even a mentalist. I learned a few things the the area of mentalist but still, out of everything, this is what stuck with the audience the most. So many people think "If the method is easy, the trick is terrible" which is ridiculous! More often than not, the simpler the effect, the better reactions you get. No the method is not obvious, remember this is for laymen. Unless your primary audience is magicians and you NEED to fool then, then you shouldnt have a problem.

Get this DVD, it is amazing and has served me well! Is it easy? Yes! VERY easy, still doesnt change the fact the effect is brilliant and dont be afraid to change up the presentation to fit your own style.

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.

Good Money Maker... But Old School Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 8th, 2010
When I bought this I was impressed. I've been doing magic and such for a few years professionally as was not new to the mentalism scene. I bought this on a whim, and it really impressed me.

Yes what he teaches isn't new techniques and yes it does rely heavily on showmanship and presentation, but it is a good routine and an easy one to get gigs with. This has happened to me as the story below will show.

I was working in my office and my boss called me into her office for a meeting. As I was in I see the head of department, plus one of the execs there. Apparently she had told this exec that I do magic, and the exec wanted to see a trick. Not having anything on me I decided on a whim to do EI. Asking her for her own business cards I performed E.I. I ended up getting 4 high priced shows from that 2 minute trick and a couple of wedding gigs - which I put down to this trick!

I think that really says enough about this routine...

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 am a mentalist and I have had this on my shelf for a long time. While doing some research for an upcoming performance, I decided to take bit and really watch it. This is GOLD! He really teaches this very well and shows multiple performances along with detailed teaching. Very well done.

E.I. review Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 14th, 2008
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.

E.I. Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 10th, 2008
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.

Amazing! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 28th, 2015
People who dislike this trick all say the find the method dull or boring... But they have completely misunderstood magic and mentalism!!! The method doesn’t mean zilch!
The method is easy to do and perform, and that is the only important thing. And the effect is amazing, easy to do, and the best way to practice cold reading… what’s not to like?

Great Lecture Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 14th, 2015
This is amazing that I payed only 18 dollars for this DVD (open box) It is one of the best DVDs that i have ever seen. The fact that the newbies "kew how this was done right away" means noticing . This is genuine gem and any mentalist or magician who did not buy it is creating themselves. Luke is a very great thinker , You, if you are a working pro will find this DVD will find it's worth in gold.
Highly recommended.
