You get something like 4 hours on this download which is more than advertised , much of it being around Peters philosophy rather than out and out performance.8 of 10 magicians found this helpful.
When he does effects they're generally not brand new but more old principles that he has added subtleties to. The best is probably the addition to Lift which, although risky, is great fun and adds an extra layer of mystery.
Some of the early effects in the lecture, like the ACAAN , don't sell well and scream force and restriction to me. That they are so lauded says more about the soft "magician" audience for this lecture who are prepared to accept convoluted methods for defining a choice. For me, and it's not just Peter who does this stuff, picking a choice through complex numerology is just naff.
And the card jazzing lacks real clarity for me and again suggests that some of the presentations for a lay audience would be terribly confusing.
Some good nuggets and subtleties but nothing terribly new..,and he is a bit of a windbag !!!
Very good with reservations Report this review

Turner is an excellent mentalist. He's creative and seems like a nice guy. This is, by far, his best lecture yet. There is a lot of stuff here to think about. That said, I do have to call him out. When he does Fate CAN, his explanation is absolutely terrible. I hope that it's because he just can't explain it well and not that he's trying to hide the ball to get people to buy his monograph which contains the effect. In addition, Dan Harlan, usually so good at moderating these lectures, does nothing to help. There is no way that Turner's explanation of the effect is clear (just look at the number of comments from people who bought the lecture), but Dan is star struck, asleep, or in the bathroom because he let it slide. Penguin Magic, here's a suggestion: If a performer is going to give a half-baked explanation of an effect to shill his stuff (and there's nothing fundamentally wrong with that), at least insure that the lecturer says up front that you need to buy his book to fully understand an effect. Don't let it appear that he's explained an effect when he hasn't. That is just frustrating and wastes people's time.4 of 5 magicians found this helpful.

This was a fantastic lecture, and highly recommend it to any mentalist. His old lecture focused in things that involved stage work, such as pre-show and dual reality, but this one seems to be more geared towards close up performance. This lecture was just flat out brilliant.3 of 4 magicians found this helpful.

This is a review of the first 3 hours (I haven't yet got through the whole thing).2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
Great lecture overall.
Touches on a lot of points that you'll probably be able to add to what you're already doing.
The Lift was very good. I already knew Brown's method, but Turner's touch was to "tie it up" so that you're clean after it. Though I did find it very weird how he was touching the guy in several places on the man's body (elbow, etc.) for no apparent reason, when tapping the guy on the hand would suffice.
What I was most looking forward to was the Jedi Push.
Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed.
This is not the way Derren Brown did it (and Peter openly admits this and says that he never figured out Derren's way to do it).
I was hoping to stand behind a person, and on my signal, he falls back.
What perplexes me about Derren's performance of this is that the participant is facing away, so he can't be cued or signaled.
In Peter's version, the participant is face to face to Peter, with opened eyes, and Peter gives a very obvious hand signal (he doesn't hide it, it's like a Darth Vader type thing).
It's not bad, but it just looks like suggestion or a hypnosis stunt; whereas I was hoping for something truly mystifying.
The "spider" thing done on Dan, I loved. All you need is a business card and marker (or napkin and a marker). I love stuff like that. Reminded me of Atlas Brooking's superhero P.A. (though it's not a P.A., the effect was as simple, impromptu, real-looking, and minimal props).
Peter Turner demonstrates and explains "jazzing" (not sure if he would use this term). It's like Dai Vernon's Trick That Cannot Be Explained. The outcome is different every time, like multiple outs. This means the material is not easy (similar to cold-reading, it will require a lot of practice with humans, and a lot of failing before you get really good).

I love Peter. I really do. I could watch him perform all day long. He can not teach an effect to save his life. He goes on so many tangents that I have no clue how to preform most of the tricks on here. These are no longer live, if it was in sure people would have asked so many questions on how the hell he does it. I'm not even sure he explained all the tricks he did.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
I guess it's my fault, this is the 5-6 thing I've bought from him, and he never does an amazing job teaching his work. Even in the pdf, he doesn't explain how to do ACAAN that well. Like I said, he's an amazing performer and creator, as far as teaching I learned maybe 3 tricks from this. And half learned all the other ones. The three I did learn I would never use as they aren't that good.

I have decided to write a more detailed review of this lecture, reviewing individual effects as opposed to the entire lecture itself.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
FateCAN-7/10, This effect is decent, and pretty well thought out. It can sometimes play out clean, and other times play out really suspicious. Though a pretty good ACAAN, I prefer his old one. I dont see myslef performing this one .(ACAAN)
Lift V2-9/10, I love this! I watched the explanation and thought," There is now way I could get away with that" I was performing for some family members(my test dummies lol) and it went over really well. I can see myself performing this often. I forgot to mention that Peter talks about how to clean up the D**l R*****y in Derrens original routine.(A PK routine where you control someones movement)
Jedi Push-10/10, This is definitely my stand out trick from the lecture. It works with any body type. So I can grab any two people on the street and do this. O have performed a couple of times now, and it has insane reactions. I have came across many variations of this effect, including Aaron Alexanders and Athem Flints, but this one is definitely my favorite.(A PK effect where you knock someone down without touching them)
5 Keys to Balpate-8/10, This effect doesnt really have any new methodology. It is Peters fantastic presentation that sells it. I cant really say much more without giving it away.(An effect where you have to guess which passcode out of five is your spectators)
Serial Killer-7.5/10 A really impressive demonstration of the mind. I dont see myself performing this regularly but if I had nothing else to perform with, I could see myself doing this.(Random additions on a calculator equal a serial numbe on a dollar bill)
Jazzing with Playing Cards-6/10, Nothing really new here, but still fun to watch.(Peter doing random stuff with playing cards)
Many principles and lots of theory are discussed throughout the lecture, and thats where the real value is. This lecture was amazing(I should also mention every single routine is suitable for both close up and stage.) Thus lecture is well worth the price.

Not a good trick from Peter, not up to his standard.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
Much better than the first! Report this review

I have to say, I wasn't terribly impressed by the first Penguin lecture that Peter gave. But THIS one is MUCH better. I haven't had time to mine it for all of the treasures yet, but the second half features effects that I WILL use. And those effects alone, more my style and performance, are well worth the price of admission!1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
4.9/5 Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 21st, 2016
Peter Turner's Penguin LIVE 2 is a very smart purchase for those who enjoy his style. For those of you who have purchased his previous lecture, I would encourage you to look into this lecture. Peter states in this lecture that he has matured since then and has found a symphony between the sure fire method and the methods for which he is well known. Those of you who hate Turner's approach completely, I cannot speak to what your experience with your lecture will be as I approached this lecture previously liking his material. I enjoyed this lecture immensely and retained some tips that will better improve my stage performance.1 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
(p.s. I gave it 4.9 because I am unbelieving in a perfect score, the lecture attendee has to alter the material to fit their personal style)

The very definition of 'Value for money'
This is more of a mentalism masterclass hosted by one of the worlds leading thinkers of his field than a lecture.
Pete goes through some of the cleanest ACAANs and PK style effects that are currently out there. Better than any of the methods which he teaches he spends an hour an a bit speaking with Dan about mentalism theory, constructing acts and even confidence when performing material that isnt 100%. When you buy this lecture you get a chance to explore the mind of Peter Turner and that is a very rare, valuable opportunity worth 10 times the asking price of the lecture alone.
If you enjoyed his first lecture or any of the countless PDFs and books that this man has authored than this lecture should already be in your collection.
Giving it 5 stars because 6 starts isnt a real rating.
