"NOTHING TO CARRY! Everything in this book can be done without props, a whole book of effects without props, fuck me how often do you see that?.
You'd be stupid not to click the buy button."
Keith Barry, Professional Mentalist & TV Personality
"I own all of Paul's books and there is always something to learn from him."

"The Knights Tour. This is the killer app that sells this book. Lets face it, if you know what the knight's tour is, you probably know how to do it, at least one method right? Paul's real contribution here is the structure of what he does, and his in depth outlines and ideas for how to present the KT in a way that doesn't just draw the punters in, it rounds them up, lasso's them and practically forces them to be amazed. It is amazing, and reading Paul's description I can really picture the electric effect it would have on an intelligent crowd.
There's not much to 'tip' but without going into too much detail Paul's presentation reaches outside the boundaries of a conventional magic 'effect' and creates something different. The real effort goes not into the performance of the actual piece but in the framework that sets it up and persuades people very powerfully that what they are about to witness is something genuinely rare and amazing. This 'outside of the box' stuff is which is where he is strongest as a creator and his KT has got it just right.
Paul's writing is effective and inspiring. "
Phill Smith, Professional Mentalist & Author, UK
"Great stuff. Loved not only your routines, but all the little subtleties, touches and sneaky bits within them.
Fantastic, you've got another winner"
Greg Arce, Professional Mentalist &b Author, USA
"These effects are virtually propless - I highly recommend this book."
Alexander Marsh, Professional Mentalist, UK
"The Chrysalis of a Polymath is excellent, it is like a cross between Harry Lorayne's 'How to Develop a Super Powered Memory, a little bit of Corinda's '13 Steps to Mentalism' and Rain Man's biography! Tossed out thoughts is, in my opinion, Paul's greatest effect in publication and Data Spaced comes in a close second. Both will become regular features of my performances. TCOAP is right up there with The Alchemical Tools as essential reading for all mentalists.
10/10 pure and simple. "
Harry Guinness, Professional Mentalist, Ireland
