I think only about five to six tricks are really good, but that's personal preference and it does not need to be more than that for me to give 5 stars in this case, because those 5 are VERY strong. Personally, I don't like tricks that involve pad-locks, manilla envelopes and I also don't understand Jay's enthusiasm about predicting the date on a coin all the time, which he does on different products of his. Also "Mona Lisa" which everybody seems to like I don't, because there is a 1 in 4 chance of this happening anyway, and that's not strong enough. Especially for a trick that takes so much preperation for the performer. And is also nothing special to watch. (the spec. moves around the 4 pieces of the ML - computer-printout - and no matter how many times he does that when they are unfolded they will basically all be where they belong. It would be more fun with the real Mona Lisa.)
Ok, let's say 6 tricks are not only good but kick-xxxx and 6 times 5 bucks is 30, there you go.
Projection: Jay and a spectator have on deck of card each and turn over a card behind their backs. The cards match. No ex-change of the deck, magician always acts first (shows the card first etc.). Fantastic.
Lottery: right. Already explained in a different review, absoulely mind-boggeling. Especially since the spec can change the order of the cards and still the prediction turns out to be right. Best trick? I agree.
Perfect timing: forgot the name of the trick: behind his back the spectator will mark any one out of 3600 possible minutes the face of a watch made of paper. Boris predicted this beforehand. Will need quite a bit of preparation, though.
Speechless: A prediction is written on a playing card and placed face-down on the table before the spectator names "any object". Sounds trivial but is like "dropping an anvil on a child's head on a hot day". (Sorry about that, but Boris says so. And he's right.)
Impulse Control: Loved this one, and it's so easy to do. On top of the deck Boris puts a card of another deck (different color) which has a question mark on it. He claims that he will control the spectators choice. The spectator selects a card from the deck and it turns out, as Boris turns over the ?-card, it is that very card.
Unconscious knowledge: Jay's version of the stop trick. Spectator thinks of a card and names a number between 1 and 52, it's his card.
Distant relations: Spec writes whatever name on a piece of paper. Jay puts it in a paper-clip and burns it without opening the folded piece of paper. He writes the name on a second piece of paper. That's because he's mental.
Facsimile is also strong, he guesses what's written on your business-card and makes a drawing of it, though it's more fun when there is someting special printed on it, and that might not occur all the time.
So, 5 very strong effects, three strong ones and just a very funny Jay Sankey. Also, everything is very well explained. I also think this one is a lot better than 22 blows to the head which I found average.

SWEET! Awesome video with many many astounding effects. By far my favorite mentalist instructional DVD! Every routine is very well taught by Mr. Jay Sankey, very visual.. easy understanding. He is very funny in this too so it makes it alot funner to learn and understand. I tried several of these effects on my family and they were amazed. Every single effect taught in this video, you WILL USE one time or another, and they all get great reactions. I can't recommend this enough. ADD TO CART!

This DVD was actually pretty funny, despite how un-funny Jay can be sometimes! The Mona Lisa trick alone was worth the price of the DVD.

Jay did it again. He went out of his way to create an entertaining, but high quality product.
There is soooo much material on this DVD to watch, but it's just hilarious to watch as well.
This is good if you want to add some mentalism to your act without needing to carry around a bunch of crazy props.

I saw Sankey Lecture in Cincinnati, and picked up this DVD. It exceeded my expectations. The effects are very strong, and so simple. The entertainment value is alone worth the price. I plan on using three or four effects from the DVD. They are very strong and practical.
Note: I do not like how people review products when they don't even own them. It clutters up the review pages. How can someone knock Sankey's new DVD when they don't even own it? Just my 2 cents... Jason

Look, magic is for entertainment purposes and the point of entertainment is to capture your audiences attention and to keep it within your grasp. With magic, you capture it by performing feats which people would never think possible. That is what you are missing.
As for the DVD, I think that it is a very good DVD with some amazing effects in there. If there is one thing you will buy, GET IT!
