I realise that searching through books is seldom page after page of usable mind-blowing material but more of a treasure hunt. I love that feeling of chills up the spine when you read a routine and realise the strength of what you've found and also that you are in a position to obtain the materials pronto. Found such a routine in a series of mentalism booklets called Sensational Mentalism. I was sat in bed with my hot chocolate and felt like rubbing my hands together like a schoolboy.

Wholeheartedly agree. And there's a lot of wading through antiquated language... but every now and then you find a gem. And then discover it's been repackaged as a video download on some website. Wamp wamp!
