Amusing............but Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 26th, 2012
How can anyone talk non-stop for over 2 hours without even taking a sip of water? Paul can because he is so adept, polished and relaxed at performing in front of an audience that he’s totally at ease. He is an incredible public speaker.

While it is easy for some viewers to be overcome with Paul’s high-energy talent for story telling, I found that his lecture was almost void of any real instructional material that the aspiring mentalist/cold reader could readily put to use.

Except for the very few moments where he rushes through the meanings he has applied to certain playing cards and suits, the rest of the time was spent demonstrating his glib ability to impress the audience with his talents to speak multiple languages, sing, name drop and manipulate people to get what he wants. At best, this lecture offers an insider view on the practices of a “fortune teller”.

If you are looking for a tutorial on mentalism, this lecture is not it.

Disappointing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 7th, 2013
Paul is a fantastic performer, and he oozes charisma. But, the content of what he teaches here is just not that impressive. He goes into work on predominately two items, doing tarot with playing cards, and a personality test. The personality test was boring, and I don't imagine any audience watching it. One on one it would play better, which he explains, but, my problem is, a personality test isn't very mystical or entertaining. It kind of felt like sitting down and taking a magazine quiz with someone. No thanks. The other item was doing tarot with playing cards. It isn't really worth it.

Not interested in card reading Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 21st, 2012
Paul mostly goes over two forms of the presentation. One with cards and one with some sort of "Heroes Journey" sheet. I really wouldn't want to present it in either of these ways. What I wanted was a much more general overview of cold reading. Not one tethered to something like a card reading. There is a bit of good info in here but mostly stuff I would never use.

Enlightening! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 25th, 2012
Really and truly an inspiring lecture. It opened up for me entirely new approaches to cold reading and connecting to participants. I feel like someone knocked out a wall and built an entire new addition to my brain, with bay windows overlooking a lovely new view of humanity as a bonus.

Great overview for quick readings Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 3rd, 2012
Paul explains in a simple way how to give anyone a a quick reading with either a deck of cards, or with a question answer handout using stadard testing system.

I thouroughly enjoyed this product and recommend to anyone looking to start coldreading or have a new approach to your readings...

Perfect for starting out In mentalism Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 29th, 2012
A perfect lesson on how to start. The story to tell, how to perform and what to do.

How to size people up and what to say to make you a believable mentalist / medium.

A must see if you are thinking about doing something with cold (or hot) reading. You can use the knowledge to be part of your "normal" everyday routines, or build a whole cold reading act.

Great Intro to Mentalism Lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 27th, 2012
I watched the lecture after the fact, but I have to say it was great. There isn't a lot of "take this step, then this step" sort of instruction, but instead a lot of knowledge and wisdom gleaned over years of performing was shared. The type of knowledge that if you take it and really work with you'll be able to come up with your own techniques, effects, and character. So for anyone who is considering mentalism or just looking for a few tips to up their game, watch this lecture. You'll be glad you did.

Excellent! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 26th, 2012
As a young magician I have yet to really start to study cold reading and thought this lecture would provide a good insight. It did, but this is not simply a lecture on cold reading. Paul talks about magic and mentalism in general and provides great advice on how to research material and utilise all of your knowledge and skills beyond magic within your performances in order to provide the best entertainment you can. Great lecture.
