I thought this DVD would be good, but I didn't expect Luke to tip techniques that Professional
performers use world wide. There are hundreds of books written with effects, but you'd spend decades
to learn how to "speak" like a Mind Reader. The how and why of what you say is as important as the
effect you perform.
It's the use of words that sell what you do and Luke doesn't hold back!
You can apply what he teaches to ANY mentalism you do now and improve the reactions you

This DVD is aimed to mentalists who want to take their performance to the next level. If you are
familiar with Luke Jermay's work you will not be disappointed with this DVD. However, if you are
looking for a DVD that will teach you revolutionary ground-breaking effects in mentalism this is not
it. I am not saying this is a bad thing, it's just a different product and you should know what you
want to buy before you make a purchase. Buy this if you already know how to perform mentalism but
you want to take it up a level.
There are routines included in the DVD, but like I said before,
if you already perform mentalism then I am sure you already have your favourite routines. Rest
assured that the material covered in this DVD can be applied on all your routines.
If you can't
see the value of this DVD then you are not ready for it yet. To me, this is solid gold.

Couldn't say enough good things about this excellent DVD. Probably one of the best DVD's on the
subject that I have watched. Whether you are a beginning mentalist or experienced, you will learn
much from this modern master. Highest recommendation and at the price??? an absolute giveaway.

I gave this 5 stars not only because it's great but because it was exactly the type of thing I was
However, there are 3 things you should know when considering this product
that I haven't seen in most other reviews.
1. Primarily only playing card and word reveals
are discussed but not only are great methods for these explained but also how to apply the same
theories to other reveals.
2. One of the effects taught which could be a whole show itself,
especially for walk around, requires the purchase of another common effect (if you don't already
3. The effects in the performance section are not taught and it is only meant to
show you how to use what you've learned. But if you're experienced you'll probably recognize the
The information, of course, was very good. My complaint has to do with the quality of the video,
which was terrible. Even inexpensive cameras today (I've been producing a music internet tv show for
several years and I started with $80.00 point and shoot cameras and they did a good job.) Smart
phones today make more than acceptable quality.
Maybe I'm more picky, but it was hard to
watch with the poor quality of the video.
Luke Jermay gives you, the advanced mentalist, a master class on how to act and talk like a
mentalist. Pshaw, you say. I already have my patter down and am good at what I do. Maybe so, but
Jermay will make you exceptional at what you do. His theories--this is almost completely a theory
lecture--on scripting and nuances are excellent--great mentalist, great teacher, great lecture. Now
some of this stuff is a little controversial (Richard Osterlind would totally disagree on how to do
a book test revelation), but even if you disagree with Jermay, your mind will be opened to an
overarching theory of how to make mentalism routines look like real mind reading. How cool is that?
If you want to stay at your current skill level, don't get this DVD/download. If you want
to advance to a higher level, this is a cheap and easy way to do it.
I've always been doubtful about mentalism plots -- think of something, yeah I knew that. But Luke
Jermay's DVD has helped me see that the effect could be so much stronger with the proper approach --
an approach that emphasizes the important elements of the presentation. This has caused me to
consider whether I could actually do more work in mentalism myself.
i love,as french,Luke Jermay.
A simple cards trick becomes a miracle.
The audience believes
that Luke is a real mind reader,and, here,in this dvd, he teaches us, how to do it, how to use
words ,and cold reading to transform everything, into a miracle of the mind...
I have seen and
met him, and i know him. He is, really, at the top of the modern mentalism, the mentalism of the new
Mentalism with nothing, no props, only a pen, paper, and your mind...
This is for review on an intellectual level. Jermay discusses things you can use and if you apply
them your performance will be all the better for it.
A raw, natural, exceptional message.
I love this kind of stuff.
