Ok , I don't usually like reviewing as I do not see myself as a worthy critic of such intelligence and knowledge, but , I received Proteus with open arms excited at the prospect of becoming a mind reader. Soon as I opened the book my heart sank as I encountered my JANET AND JOHN reading book big letters and little words I learnt from 5 years old. I thought hey ive just spent 50 quid give it a go . AND WOW am I glad I did . After scrutinising the book for 3 days and nights, I mustered up the courage to try it out on my wife BIG MISTAKE SHE CAME UP WITH DOLL, Ok it must be me. I askwed a young lady work colleaque to give it a go. WALLOP! I AM A GOD. FANTASTIC I HAD TO PERFORM IT TWICE FOR HER 1ST THE HOUSE 2ND THE SUN , DO NOT UNDER ESTIMATE THIS BOOK , Thankyou PHEDON AND ALAKAZAM . john Thorpe AKA JON.I.AM
Learned this and tried first time on my wife and son. My wife imagined a snowman and my son imagined a chair.
Proteus is a thing of absolute beauty. It is not just an effect but a dynamic strategy. An approach that can be shaped and built on to suit your needs. And you should shape it and work on it. This will involve you working to get really good at it and it will be worth it. I had the fortune to speak with Phedon and have the effect demonstrated in person over a video call. Such a great gift. He showed me how he has invisibly embedded the work of this piece into a delivery that makes it feel incredibly clean. I wish I could say more but I don't want to give anything away. I heard some criticism from certain people and I really have to wonder what these guys are on and what they are looking for. Anyone with a brain will totally love this.
That's it I'm off to a Croft farm in Scotland to talk to the animals and then a brief stroll across a nearby loch!!!! And then I shall take a long lie down in a darkened room to contemplate further the meaning of life and magic. This effect is as good as it gets in terms of practicality, ease and 'naturalness' of use. It is clear, concise and imaginative in its teaching, charming and elegant in its presentation; and above all thoroughly entertaining. What a joy learn and perform. Congratulations Phedon.
I first tried Proteus on myself using the book... OMG The book told me what I was thinking of. I have had Proteus for 2 days and already performed it on 4 amazed clients. It is a joy to perform and not at all difficult to learn. Phedon is a genius. I can not wait until his next release because I will snap it upWrite Review
