"This is some of the most enjoyable mentalism I have ever read or tried.
All of Scott's books are to be savoured and used. 5-star material, easily adaptable to anyone's style. If occasional math frightens you, don't let it - he holds your hand and makes it as easy as 1 plus 1.
I don't know where Scott St Clair has been all my life, but I am glad he is in it now.
His material is very highly recommended, and used, by me."
MY THOUGHTS: "This is an extremely smart book with some real gems in here. The material is not only very clever but also very practical. The book itself is 112 pages with nine routines ranging from a book test to cell phones. The great thing about this book is the effects can be done close-up or on stage or parlor, they are THAT versatile. If you are looking for really solid and audience tested mentalism then this book offers that and more. NIPPIN has become my favorite ‘unlocking’ cell phone effect which offers a unique twist where you touch your finger to the spectator’s finger and you unlock THEIR phone! The structure of this routine makes this an incredibly strong piece and it all happens on their phone. The first part of this routine is the spectator is able to unlock YOUR phone. This is the type of routine you can do anytime and using a borrowed phone. It’s the best version I’ve come across of this type of effect. Another favourite is a routine called LOGO – this would make an excellent routine for trade-show workers using a companies name. In this case the reveal is LEGO but done in such a clever way using a calculator where you turn a random number chosen by the spectator upside down and it reveals the logo. One of the things I love about Scott’s material is that it can be a stepping stone to other ideas and routines. There is a beautiful piece at the end of the book called PAPA. This is a great example of weaving a story with a strong piece of mentalism. The method is something we know however there are some additions that would really fool those who know it. I can see this being an extremely powerful piece of mentalism that would really leave an audience with a strong memory of the performance. You will also learn a great way to do a one-handed switch of a billet. It’s so natural and by simply placing a billet in a spectator’s hand you switch it for another – all using one hand. Testify is an incredible book test using a Harry Potter book. I have no idea how many books Scott must have gone through to get this working but it really is something very special, and one of the most unusual book tests I’ve seen. I don’t know where Scott has been hiding all these years but I’m glad he has released some of his work. His thinking behind every routine or ‘tool’ he shares in this book shows somebody who definitely thinks outside the box. From being able to divine pin numbers, reveal a word in a book, to effects using a calendar, post-it-notes and photographs this book will have material every mentalist can use. I can’t wait to see what else Scott has coming out because I’ve become a huge fan." – Paul Romhany – Vanish Magazine
