To be able to receive this information for the price is among the best deals I have ever come
across. The routines in this book will give you the ability to convince people you are genuinely
psychic. Use them wisely, and carefully.
For Andruzzi just may be the greatest routine I
have ever come across. Think about it...with no gimmicks whatsoever, you stop your pulse, then
proceed to stop a spectators pulse. What could possibly be stronger?
Cold Emotion is a
great routine which uses Luke's "E-Motion Deck," a brilliantly constructed, but very simple to make
and practical, deck which will give you an incredibly powerful routine if you are a decent cold
reader, and will give you a great framework to learn cold reading if you have yet to master the art.
These routines are somewhat difficult to perform effectively, but nothing this good comes
without practise. If you are well versed in mentalism already I suggest this book, but if you are
not an experienced mentalist this is not a good place to start.

I'm quite confused that both the product description and any reviews would refer to one of these
effects and claim that you can "stop a spectator's pulse". You can't, and you don't. This is not
at all what happens in the effect.
This effect, like most of the other material in this
booklet, are predicated on the power of suggestion, bluff, and cold reading. Some people may
actually enjoy this kind of psychological play-acting, but it needs to be made clear that this is
what you're getting here. You will not be learning much in the way of methods or gimmicks with
which you can perform effects; instead you will be learning ways to allegedly psychologically
manipulate your audience.
Despite the author's claims, I have a hard time believing that
any of this is 100% effective. And even if it were, is there really a sense of accomplishment in
using the stress of performance to get an intimidated audience member to say something you both know
