It is worth noting that Darius and Phedon shot their work on film. The color range, the contrast, the sharpness, is far more pleasing to me than those shot on any digital medium, and yes, there is a difference. I sincerely hope we continue to have the choice of what format to use as technology races ahead and industry standards change and begin to limit our options. There is much that will be lost if film goes away completely, and I fear we will not fully understand exactly what until it is too late.

I love it and I will definitely use it!! You are here for a real treat. If you ever dreamed of doing the perfect drawing duplication with nothing written down, look no further! Highly recommend! Buy it, use it, and stun your audiences with it. Absolutely nothing is left out of the demo. There is no other process. That's it. He nailed my thought 3 times in a row.
It is truly the most magical thing I've experienced in a long time. Proteus is a piece of art, all you need is two minds and a piece of ground to floor you audience! He actually read my mind in a matter of less than 20 sec. I was fortunate enough to be involved in the "field tests," and both the simplicity and impact make the effect one that should be in the working repertoire of every professional mentalist.
If I were to make a list of required reading for budding psychic entertainers, this book would definitely be on that list as it is a study in how to perform truly prop-less impromptu mind reading. Thank you, Phedon, for allowing me to witness the birth of what is certain to become a classic!

Customer Reviews showing 1 - 10 of Showing the Most Helpful Newest. Real Mind Reading? I bought this because I believed the hype like everyone else. I spent a lot of days getting it down and gave it many tests via phone, which is what Phedon said in his book that he did.
Many people thought of objects that were not covered by the system. I did the script as he said, and even messed around with it for a while. I even bought other ebooks that were supplimentary to the book. When it did hit successfully, it felt more like fishing or 20 questions to get to where I was going. It did not feel like real mind reading. Furthemore Phedon himself has a nasty habit of putting the inadequancies of his book on the buyer, including saying that people who don't like it are not real mentalists and are not as advanced as him yet he claims in the book to be a coin magician.
I find it incredibly tacky for a creator to insult the purchasers of his product. He could simply say that he stands by it and that he thinks that it is good, perhaps apologize that it is not for them and move on. Instead he feels the need to be rude to people. This is a disappointing release but it is worse when the creator is not a stand up guy. Did this review help you? Don't be fooled by the hype. This isn't what it's cracked up to be. From the ad blurb and the list of testimonials, you would think this was the greatest thing in mentalism to be introduced in the last century.
It isn't. You cannot ask spectators to think of ANY drawing and expect this to work -- even if you ask them to keep the drawing simple. There's a limitation I can't discuss because it would reveal the method. I've tried this on several occasions and each time it failed, as I knew it would, but I wanted to prove it to myself.
I see from other reviews that some performers are very happy with this. More power to them. But for my money, Mr. Bilek should have stayed with coin magic. Perfect Writing, Disappointing trick. I couldn't wait for my pre order of this trick to arrive and was unbeleiavably excited when it did.
The method sounded alright and the memory work was described well and throughly therefore making it easier.

In fact the writing in this book is very very easy to understand and very well put together. That being said out of the thirty some times I've tried this effect I've only hit four times. I've followed the scripting exactly and read through the entire book three times. Imho no matter how you word this, it feels way too similar to 20 questions rather than a mind reading effect. Here some things I forgot to mention, maybe the penguin team can merge this review or just publish both.
I wanted to clarify that this method is psychologically by nature and only as good as the performer is. If you have no experience you will be significantly lower and become frustrated.

Do you want to respond to this review? A gem, but not for novices in mentalism or beginners Report this review Pro Privacy ON login to see reviewer names on July 19th, Hello, after getting this book and performing it I wanted to share my experience. If I read the other reviews I thinks there are some points you have to know before you buy this, otherwise it is too much money.
First of the book is well written and easy to read and understand.

I liked the writing style but that could be a personal preference. The main effect is mind peek. It is a tool and in my experience the best method for people's mindreading. I have had success with many other methods in the past but this is in my oppinion the best I have tried so far. Actually I really enjoy performing this because if it hits it is so strong and feels like real magic.
But it is not real magic. I am sorry to say the only real magic is what our spectators experience if we perform well. That sense of wonder that will never leave them. To get there it is not enough to buy this book. Any book or trick or method will not be enough to achieve that. So if you are a beginner or someone that one has a passing interest in mentalism and is looking for a trick to impress his friends. Move on. This is not for you.
I do not mean this insulting in any way but just as a honest warning. If you however want to really leave a lasting memory this is method that can achieve the sense of wonder I was talking about earlier. But you need prior knowledge, in spectator management, controlling the conversation and just basic skills in mentalism. You also need to have confidence.

Most who successfully perform mentalist will know that the performers confidence carrier over, especially in psychological methods. So if I read in a review, it failed as I knew it would fail, then we are talking about a selffullfilling prophecy. This holds true for many mentalism methods. If you have experience an but in the work this mothod is due you will have fun and success. For me it is just a tool and it opens up a world of possibilities if youncombine it with other mentalism principles.
This is just the beginning. You can Finessen it to you crowd of spectators and create wonders. Because that's what it is all about. To take people out of their daily lives on a journey of wonders they will cherish forma long time. So lastly this book shows the whole uncut performance in the video trailer. If you have no clue how it might work, not even a part of it, I would not recommend to buy it unless you are serious about entering the field of mentalism. If you do decide to enter this is the key to a new world and you will have fun.
Now Imwrote much more than I wanted to and I hope you will excuse that but I wanted to make my points clear beyond any doubt. Enjoy Stefan. Proteus is perhaps not for beginners or dabblers but lethal in the hands of a seasoned mentalist.

I read the reviews from the pros. I did the research, and every moment I spent waiting on my copy to show up in the mail was maddening. But I had no idea just how good this would be. I was skeptical at first, but being a non-verbal communications specialist, when I saw Peter and Dave's reactions I could tell that their reactions were genuine.
Peter was absolutely blown away by the effect and his bewilderment is not something that is easy to fake. And those gentlemen see a lot of magic and mentalism so I knew this was something special. There IS a process and there are certain pieces of information that are crucial for your to convey to the subject before you ask them to think of something.
Otherwise it won't work. But if you put the time in, and you hit those important notes, you stand a VERY good chance of knowing what they are thinking of. If you do this for two people at once, your chances of getting at least one of their thoughts correct just went WAY up. Make no mistake, this is not self working. There is a little memory work involved. Also, this will not work on everyone all of the time. There are cultural and personal differences that may affect the outcome. But think of it this way, there are zero props involved in the method.
That means you're ready anytime, anywhere.
