Wow! What a great series! Osterlind is a fantastic teacher. This is totally worth your while to
check this out. My only criticism in this lesson was that I couldn't quite clearly see what was
being written on the billets. However, Osterlind's instructions were so clear that it wasn't too
much of a hindrance in learning these moves. And because of that, this gets my highest rating. Five

Osterlind presents great material and explains it well. I am very pleased I purchased this. However,
I don't know if it was my Mac or what, but it ranged from difficult to impossible to see any writing
on the paper because of the lighting. You can still figure it all out, but it requires very careful
attention. Again, I hope it was only my screen, not yours. Nonetheless, I have the moves all figured
out and eager to use this material!

The most practical work on billets I've ever encountered.Osterlind has a gift for providing real
working methods that allow you to focus on presentation rather than convoluted and unnecessary

Richard Osterlind is not only a masterful performer, but also a gifted presenter. Combining his
personal experiences and techniques with interesting insights about the effect’s history and
evolution, the presentation is both informative and engaging. The additional effects are as
impressive as the main presentation. Well deserving of five stars. Highly recommend it. Can’t wait
to get his other works. Thank you Richard.

I already have Osterlind's book on the Perfected Center Tear, and I have his Mind Mysteries Vol 1
DVD. I'm only halfway through this video and I already feel like there's enough here to make it
worth what I paid for it. Being able to see Richard do the moves, slowly, is invaluable. Hearing him
describe the history of the effect is also an education in itself. I'm glad I bought it and I'm
looking forward to the rest of the series.

This is one of my favorite downloads to date and was exactly what I was looking for in regards to
CT's. Richard always delivers both in performance and teaching skills. I noticed that other comments
mention that the writing on the billets during demonstrations cannot be seen and this is true
however I don't think it makes any difference when it comes to learning what is taught here. - If
you are looking for an easy and effective CT then this is the download for you. This is now the only
CT I use.
Before I got this I had never learned a center tear but I know that I'd have to peek at some point
and I was scared to try that so I never bought anything on the topic. I bought this because I was
going to go through all Richards steps to become a mentalist and I didn't want to skip anything.
Well now I own it and btw get the paper from Richard, anyway I've been doing this a few months now
twice a week and I'm not afraid of anything and I never got caught and the reactions are VERY
STRONG, MORE THEN ONE PERSON THOUGHT I WAS "PSYCHIC"
I had to get this after buying Oz's Into the Abyss (great also). Oz didn't give much information on
billet reading but kicked it to Osterlind. Excellent work.
Absolutely superb tuition, relaxed style, detailed handling. You will learn THREE major billet
techniques in great detail. Practical step by step handling and lots of variations with the history
and evolution of each.
Worth much much more than the price charged.
advice from a gentle man and Gentleman!
I will download more of these wonderful lessons.
One of the best things I ever ordered from Penguin. Inexpensive and freaks people out. All with a
pen and small piece of paper. PCT takes some practice but a slam dunk winner. And you end crazy
clean. Richard is a real talent.
