This is an exceptionally high quality release that includes both a full performance and
multi-camera, in-depth explanations of the complete routine along with detailed instructions on the
As magicians and mind readers we worry about our 'moves' and if spectator's will
catch them. While I watched Lewis' performance, I didn't see the moves as they were completely
invisible. So I went back and watched the performance a second time, and again saw nothing. While
watching the explanations, the moves are so clean and hidden. You do have to practice of course,
but the amount of time required to master the moves is minimal, perhaps an hour or so.
bought AOK when it first came out and loved it. AOK2 provides a brief re-cap of the original AOK
routine, then goes beyond with much more, including new insights on the original handling.
Once you learn and master the core handling, there is so much you can do with this approach.
Drawing duplications, psychomtery, name, place or PIN reveals, close-up Q&A...and on and on.
So many new releases disappoint. AOK2 over-delivers. Master what's taught in this download and
perform highly entertaining and deceptive mind reading anywhere, anytime with a about 12 blank
business cards and a pen.

Apparently there are many out there that are afraid of one single sleight in this
that makes it tick. I had no trouble with this at all. Believe me, if you just learn the thing
half-way, it will be enough. It is completely invisible.
My problem with the original
version came later when you had to do something else. Not a sleight really, just a weird action that
drew attention every time I performed it. Most of the time it didn't diminish the effect, but it
bugged me that they looked when I did it, even with proper misdirection. The girls even looked at
Lewis in the "live performance" segment of the original.
I'm happy to say that AOK 2
addressed this issue indirectly while trying to give a solution to that first problem. Now I can
perform it without the weird moment.
This is such a perfect mind reading concept that
allows a full peek at all the information, several if need be. Lewis completely breaks down every
aspect of performing AOK with information that will help you become a better mind reader no matter
what you perform. It's like a long one-on-one with Lewis in a private room with tons of useful
I loved the original AOK and love it even more now. The only reason I gave it
4 stars instead of 5 is that the problem I had with performance has never been addressed directly in
any of the downloads, just skimmed over as if it is nothing. It's not. If completely noticed, it
screams trickery in an otherwise perfect piece of mind reading. However, this AOK 2 was sufficient
enough to give me another method.

This could easily be used to guess three bits of impossible information as mind reading act. I think
if you do it that way your losing out on the massive potential to engage in emotional connection
with your spectators. Lewis is great reader which makes this effect stand out. I am reader and when
I done this routine I have had people cry happy tears as connect to memories being unfolded in front
of their eyes. Wonderful routine

Note: I didn’t ever purchase the original, so I can’t speak to the amount of value added by the
second round release, but I’m happy I held out for this version because I truly cannot imagine this
effect being further improved. I can’t find a single fault to convey. It is, in a word, perfect.
This routine is up there with the Name and Place routine by Bob Cassidy and Sneak Thief by
Larry Becker as the most wonderfully motivated technical method that is perfectly ingrained in the
plot and structure of the effect. Most of the routines I’ve seen that use this principal have some
kind of drawback - either that the spectators have to expose their choices prematurely or that the
cleanup and matching of thoughts to guesses doesn’t happen until the very end. AOK solves for those
imperfections. The method utilized does not feel like a routine that utilizes this method. It’s
really, really lovely and effortlessly congruent. This was the most delighted I’ve been by a
mentalism routine in quite a while. The presentational touches were delivered earnestly, and the
performances exuded heartfelt sincerity. I’m very impressed by this young man and look forward to
following his career.
I struggle with Mentalism such as book tests or methods that involve m****** billets because my eyes
are horrible, but this download... I am only 40 minutes into this and I am almost tearing up because
how beautifully well thought out this is... I can finally do Mentalism now because of you Lewis....
you literally gave me a gift with this routine, wow... literally thank you so much... you literally
don’t know how happy I am right now. If you do somehow see this... thank you so much, from the
bottom of my heart. Fan for life, especially now during the pandemic, this download was the only
positive thing in my life in weeks. I cannot wait to use this.
if you dont know any methods of peeking or if you not that confodent in knoing what to say as a
reading for hits then lewis will go over it all with you and make it all claer everything is done in
detail over the corse of two videos and a pdf book
it will take time but its a worthy
investment of it, i will be doing the first method as it suits my style best but there are mulitple
ways of getting said info for everyone.
he really lets you not panic about the peeking of
the info but more on the presentation and the conection you have with your audiance
all this is going to be gold dust for anyone that into or just geting into mentalisam
Spectator response is fantastic. It requires very little practice. Le Val's teaching is superb.
I’ve been performing the original AOK for five years and thought the AOK 2 would enhance the value
of this effect for my audiences. I was right, but this is so much more.
This is no longer
just a mind reading effect, it is an emotional experience for each and every participant and
I'll stick with the method for AOK1 as I do not have any issues with the move. However, the value of
this download is that it's a valuable sequel to AOK1. Like a good sequel, it does not replace AOK1
but complements it. The alternate methods do allow for flexibility but the presentation and the
approach covered in the second video is where this package shines. In addition, his ebook on
graphology is very workable (reminds me of his Carney Cartomancy Download). Overall, in video game
terms, this is like a very well done DLC to the main game.
Amazing download with a ton of very useful information and advice. My favorite mentalism video
right there with Sybil but even better priced for something with no holds barred.
