I don't understand why this is marketed so deceptively. If you read the description, you're probably under the impression that this is geared towards mentalists; however, nothing could be further than the truth. All of the methods require sleights, some quite advanced, that are either explained far too superficially, or not explained at all.
This manuscript is suited for card guys who want to do some mentalism; it's not at all suited for mentalists who want to do some effects with cards. Why can't this be made clear in the description?

49 seconds Even the title of this book is deceptive(buy it and youll find out what I mean). This is an incredible routine. Actually, there are several routines described, all of which are designed to give the impression of a superhuman memory. All of the routines are well designed, and will genuinely convince your audience of your memory skills. The Memory Routine is the only one I have used in performance but I could not get over how convincing it is.
Im still to perfect the sleight of hand required for the 49 seconds routine, but once I have it perfected it will be one of my go to card effects. An anytime, anywhere blockbuster. The Memory Routine is already in that category.

have long been interested in mnemonics & magic so ordered this manuscript mostly out of curiosity; it parallels some of the work done by famed memory expert, also a renowned magician, Harry Lorayne but makes some thought-provoking reading

Though there are some terrific routines in this booklet, there are far too many typos and missing information. Considering the author, I expected a far more professionally written booklet. He also mentions some slights that I do not know and would have to research.
In reading the description, I was hoping for a truly mnemonic routine; but there were none. The routines make it appear you have a fantastic memory, but in realty, you are learning techniques that mimic a fantastic memory.

although some sleights and routines aren't the easiest to understand, this book offers information and routines that are creative stepping stones to these types of routines. In short you learn some valuable starting information with card memory et. Worth the money in my opinion....
Heres what got to me, some of the sleights in select routines were explained in a way that made you feel like a 2nd grader in a college class. Like can you be more descriptive, or is it just me? also the book should offer more different types of routines, i was expecting more of a variety.
