This is a great system. I have two concerns.
1. The price is very high. The reason it is
high is to prevent just ANYBODY getting the secret to this great method. So I understand why it is
high, but I think would have been just fine to filter out the real magicians and those who just
2. While the method is great, keep in mind this is not like traditional
Two-person codes. This is a simplified code, meant for basic, but powerful, tricks. If you wanted to
have someone point to any object in a room, or draw any picture, it requires a good amount of memory
work. He does go through a method that he calls the Alpha Code, but says to only use it when called
upon, and use it sparingly. This method is more of "How many fingers am I holding behind my back?"
type of code.
Cons aside, I got a hang of this method right away, and was able to
teach my partner in a quick manner. Having tried the one in 13 Steps to Mentalism, though it is
almost comparing apples to oranges, this method is a lot easier to remember, and to store in your
brain. The 13 Steps method, while more flexible in what objects you could do, called for list
memorization and awkward speech. This is a great trick, and if you can pick up a used copy, or
happen to have the cash, this is a must have for any two man routine.

What a great system Dan Harlan has created and the reason it is so great is because its so simple
to learn and difficult to forget once learned. Me and my partner tried to learn the system thats in
the 13 Steps to Mentalism by Corinda book it took months to learn the basics and the problem was, if
you left it alone for a couple of weeks you would forget things because there was so much to
But Speakeasy is so simple to learn and remember. The fun me and my partner have
already started having with this new system people keep asking me if she is physic and even the
sceptics cant work it out. I could not recommend this DVD enough

To fully understand my skepticism let me tell a quick story: Back about 6 months ago I purchased a
book called the artful dodges of Eddie Fields. In it, there was a story of eddie helping George
doing a 2 man code known as "the best in the business", though the secret method was not tipped, and
was said to be VERY difficult, taking a year's worth of practice. They would litererally able to say
peoples name's, read off serial numbers off of dollar bills, and much more. People would be
Long story short, I needed a system that can do just that. That infomaion could be
comunicated effectively and secretly. The method must be flexible. Simple. Pushing it, a spectator
could hide any item they own behind their back, and the person with their eyes closed could name the
object. Could it do all of the above and work as a reliable system? Yes. For the money to be paid,
you will be doing miracles. Legit ones at that. :)

Dan Harlan puts out some great stuff and this is no exception. This is by no means a one trick pony.
You can code practically anything to your helper. It is extremely simple and easy enough to
More complicated sets will take a bit of practice to get down fluently, but your
helper needs very little practice (practically no prep work).
If this is something that sounds
interesting, I highly recommend this DVD.

I was afraid that this would be more memory work. But it's so easy, that I was amazed. I have
tried to learn other systems and this just kills all of them. What you see in the demo vid is 100%
TRUE! If you want to learn a sytem of two pearson mindreading you will learn this in just minutes.
Fact is, this system should sell for 0 or more!Put together a show with all what you will learn from
this system and you will have an amazing act that you can charge at least 00.

Dan Harlan is a fantastic teacher. He is very entertaining and a freaking Genius! I have been
practicing this with my partner for the last two weeks. This method is brilliant and easy to learn.
I like how much he simplified things for those of us...that don't wanna memorize ourselves into a
As Dan states...there is so much you can do with this system...He presents a ton of
ideas and leaves room for you to bring your own creativity to it.
The one con about the
dvd: is that the live stuff at the fair is hard to hear...quite distracting while you are trying to
take it all in...But he makes up for it with his time alone teaching...and makes up for it EVEN more
when he lets you view some stage footage. So honestly...once you get the method down...when you go
back to review the fair footage...you won't be so freaked while you are trying to see and hear Dan
and Jen in action at the fair.
If you are interested in this kind of code/partner
speak...GET IT! You will not be disappointed. It is fun. It is easy. You will get it quickly...but
you will need to practice to be smooth...and it will all be worth it.
And guess what...it

Don't Buy This!!! It's too good and I don't want you to have it!!!
You will find nothing but one
of the most brilliant and easy to master mentalist techniques of all time that will make you and
your partner to be as close to legit mindreaders as ever possible...so I highly discourage you from
proceeding further if you know what's good for you!!!
And just remember that it doesn't help
that Dan is an excellent teacher and is incredibly helpful if you have questions or that he has more
in store than what's actually on the DVD if you are so inclined...seriously, who needs that level of
awesome FN rockingness???

Dan & Jen do an excellent job of teaching the best (as far as I'm concerned) word transmission
effect there is. This system is sooooo EASY to learn and then teach to your confederate ! EAST as
counting on your fingers. Did I mention that it is EASY... easy to learn, that is ? If you need to
"Transmit" info, then you WILL Love this method. Not only will you be able to send numbers, but will
also be able to send color, shapes & ESP Symbols too to your partner !! Great for Birthday &
Corporate events. Thanks again Dan & Jen, Your the BEST !!! Peace always to a GRReat Duo.
