I Create as I Speak - By Lewis le Val 1 & 2 BUNDLE - INSTANT DOWNLOAD
- Product Review (submitted on 29 August 2017):
I suppose the natural progression for many aspiring magicians is towards mentalism. It was not really something I wanted to delve into due to the 'high-risk of failure' aspect. With the type of audience I have, who thrive on mishaps more than miracles, I needed something more fail-safe. Nevertheless I took a furtive glance at mentalism and in all honesty, I was a little disappointed. To my mind mentalism was merely audience control, something you possess or do not, there are thousands of amateur magicians on youtube that have skills but no presence.
The disappointing aspect of mentalism was the fact the techniques I found I had been using since very young. I felt a little cheated but on reflection it was an epiphany of sorts. The techniques though familiar were honed and there was more of an insight into manipulating audiences. I feel I can communicate with most anyone on any level, be they dockworkers or CEO's. Mentalism gave me a little guidance for my rudderless ship.
As I direct result I purchased this package and whilst sceptical, I see how this can and does work. I was tempted just to buy the second part of this package but am pleased I opted for both. The first is worth the price alone in my opinion, mostly because I instantly saw so many routine options. As a stand alone without a little magic and mentalism, I would maybe not be so enthusiastic, but to combine all three the routines are without limit. The first two effects highlighted in the book are fine for people who just want to perform, but for those who really want to take their acts to the next level it is essential to purchase part 2.
I don't think this is for everyone though, I gave a 2 star for simplicity which I deem fair for those who just want a handy little addition to their routine without delving too deep. For those who do want to go in depth, this is as stated very much dependent on your own personality and presence. Very interesting reading
