'I started reading and was thrilled both by the effect and the method. Basically Christopher uses an old idea by Ted Annemann and combined it with a second method and finally added a clever scripting that grants a great impact on any audience. What is so great about it is that the revelations of the thoughts get more and more impossible while at the same time cancelling out all the possible solutions you might think of when seeing the trick performed. I should have read my Annemann more intensely. Lucky me, Christopher did it for me and added some great twists to make this a real winner. All you need are some pay envelops, your own business cards, pens and a pad of paper. Nothing is gimmicked in any way. You can even do this impromptu! And what is even more important: There are no slights or fumbling involved so you can really concentrate on the performance which is the main goal when doing mentalism routines. Overall: 10/10. There is nothing more to say!' - Stefan Olschewski
'There is some very clever handling; I especially like the first phase in this context. It is a great throw off for the phases yet to come. Chris also supplies some very valuable audience managment tips that are applicable to many effects. I know the plot has been suggested by others but I don't know that it has ever been released in this kind of detail from someone who obviously has used it a great deal and skillfully communicates his passion for his presentation.' - Bill Cushman
'The routine is fantastic, but when you see how beautiful the e-book is put together, you'll fall out of your chair. Seriously, this is one of the nicest I've seen in a while.' - Michael Paul
'This is a good deal. Solid mentalism. - The Magic Cafe - Rowdymagi
'I just got this, all I can say is WOW! this is the way an ebook should be created. Besides the top notch quality of the ebook this is a real worker. Straight into the act this will go. - will4gzus - Forums
'Just downloaded this. Very nice and well structured. I've looked and tweaked with a number of CLUE effects, none as well scripted as this. I think this is a real winner.' - Paul Sharp
