ok this isnt going to be for everyone. im sorry but im not a huge fan of jermay and banachek...im
not sure why. theyre both VERY good at what they do. i first bought this in 08' and have not used a
single thing since. nothing. they should put an experience level on this stuff. ive been performing
and studying mentalism now for a healthy 3yrs and this is just starting to come around. its more
like hypnosis without hypnosis. i mean this is as ballsy as you can get without putting someone
if you bought mind eraser and had a hard time dont bother with this. this requires
rehearsal, balls, lots of studying, balls, and lots of confidence. and balls.
i dont need
to mention this but this was annoying a bit. i hate to attack the mans personality but every
explanation has this blah, blah, blah, im done, feel to it. finish explaining then look bored and
awkward till they cut. it also has a kind of 'fuzzy' feel. like a vhs.

This material isn't for the beginning mentalist. Not in the slightest. I think the beginning
mentalist would become very frustrated. The experienced mentalist, however, will love this stuff. It
isn't easy though. It takes conviction. I love Twisted Palm. It is not something I would do in all
of my palm-readings, but I do it when the moment fits. Burst Bubble suggestion is also a fantastic
and eerie moment for the spectator. i was a little disappointed at first that some of the routines
were already in print in 7 deceptions, but then I realized how beneficial it was to actually see
them performed. Overall this is a fantastic collection.

WOW. I've been into magic for quite a while, and this DVD blew me away in a way that nothing has in
a very LONG time. If I had known the strength and quality of the material on this I would have
bought it a long time ago. I already started using For Andruzzi, which is stellar, but every other
effect on here is top notch as well. If you're a fan of Jermay's work, or suggestion-based effects,
this is definitely worth getting. It's really helpful seeing the routines previously published in
his books performed live for real spectators. This is the best performances I've ever seen from Luke
as well, which are very inspiring to watch. And again, lethally strong material. A+, 5 stars, 10/10.

The "For Andryzzi" routine is my favourite in this DVD, and it's probably also my favourite
prop-free mentalism routine. Audience reactions were great and I never fail to amaze people with
this routine. Just this item worth the price of the DVD. Not to mention the "A Twisted Palm"
routine, which based on similar techniques of "For Anduruzzi". "The Burst Bubble Suggestion" is also
great, but I've figured out a way of performing similar effect with similar principle that can
better suit my style. I gave it 4 stars because I don't really enjoy "The 7th Deception", "And If I
fall" and "Synchronized". "A Darker Dai" is nice but not perfect, because it requires quite a lot of
props, and I would not perform it, but overall, I recommended this DVD mainly because of the "For

I personally think that this DVD was some of the best mentalisim material I have seen in a long
time. Luke Jermay does an excellent job in the detailing of these routines. One thing I would say to
anyone wanting to buy it is it is great but definitely not beginner material.
This DVD wasn't what I thought it would be. It's mostly from his differnt books, but I can see this
being really popular. I haven't watched it in a while but now that I go back, I really like it
There are a few things on here that I perform consistantly and have loved. My audiences are
amazed too. This is the stuff that really hits hard and you can do with a lot of practice, but once
you get down. I also liked how it was kind of like a group learning session DVD. I suggest buying
this if you want to learn AMAZING mentalism
