"This material is so fantastic - I bought the rights to it!" -Kenton Knepper

The groundbreaking material contained in 7 Deceptions is in a class of its own. After seeing these creations, Kenton Knepper was so stunned that he actually bought the publishing rights from Luke-the first time Kenton has ever purchased another's material. With endorsements from names like Docc Hilford, Steve Banachek and Kenton Knepper, you can rest assured that this is real-world material.

  • Stop your own pulse...with no gimmicks! And-stop a spectator's pulse without even touching them! No stooges, confirmed by another audience member, this is the real work! A spectator simply looks at a playing card and you cause them to actually forget this card-they can't remember it! This really works!
  • A spectator's actual phobia is seen to go away through a magical, psychological event. The spectator takes home a special paper to remind them of this dramatic change. Is it real magic?
  • Two different spectators see two different words on one ungimmicked piece of paper without a single switch. You may also add to this, causing a third spectator to read a third word. A fascinating principle explained in full. This technique opens up many brand-new doors.
  • During a palm reading, the lines on the spectator's palm apparently move and twist on their own. A stunning combination of linguistics, psychology and neurology. And lots more, including in-depth extras from guest contributors and fans of Mr. Jermay.

(This review is for 7 Deceptions book by Luke Jermay)
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 isn't true?
