"Luke Jermay is one of the most creative performers I have ever met."
- Teller

Luke Jermay has performed his Questions & Answers routine throughout the world, including a two-year run on the Las Vegas Strip. "The Three Types" is the result of years of experimentation to create a powerful Q&A routine that could be performed in any environment with very little setup.

The most important aspect of "The Three Types," though, is not it's practicality, but the clever concept of "invisible billets" that lies beneath it. With a topical presentation surrounding personality tests (as made popular by websites and magazines), Luke has discovered techniques to reveal information that could apparently have never come from the brief information that the participants provide.

"The Three Types" is a triumph of careful routining and presentation, clever construction and classical methodology. Whether you've never performed a Q&A routine before or are looking for a contemporary, practical presentation for an existing routine, this complete ten-minute act is for you.

"Luke blows my mind with an amazing idea; an idea that really does make the billets truly invisible. It's almost a complete act that enables you to stand on stage and appear simply to read people's thoughts... All of this comes with a compelling presentation, engaging plot and a strong theatrical structure. What more could you want?"
- Marc Paul, from the foreword

"Be glad Jermay uses his mental powers for good!"
- The Las Vegas Review Journal

Pages: 50 - 9" x 6"- Softcover - Perfect bound - with ilustrations.

This book is worth alot more than what its priced for. I have always wanted to learn a Q&A routine but I was always overwhelmed by its methods, but this book made it simple and easy to understand everything from the reading to the actual scripting of the routine. I honestly think this is a must have for anyone starting out in Q&A routines for this book will be the basic foundation for your knowledge in Q&A.

Powerful as the routine is, this is not a Q&A. In a Q&A, the participants think of questions (typically about the participants' futures) and the mentalist apparently reveals answers to those questions.

The Three Types is a mind reading act in which the performer appears to use great powers of psychological analysis to read minds. It is a great book for those who like patter relating to psychology (like what Derren Brown does) and I may use this book if I ever go in that direction. As of now, this book is not for me. I believe it dilutes the power and appeal of an act to explicitly announce you are not psychic.

Brilliant book Report this review

As far as this book goes, the thing that I like about it the most is that it discusses the concept of using billets in a psychologically invisible way. Great book even if you don't use the routine.
