I find it reasonably accessible to read, decidedly a dip in and out reference text mind you.

Can you point me in the dircetion of the post where I said that there is no value in this book? Or the bit where I suggest no-one should try and interpret it? Or the bit where I suggest no-one should try and interpret it's underlying principles?

I don't believe I said any of that. I said that the book is dry, and shouldn't be suggested to begginers. I maintain that that's completely true.

Good point. I withdraw my sarcastic post. I was probably irritated because you posted a contentious opinion intentionally, received some sensible replies and then restated your position (while agreeing with the sensible points). This seemed a little Trollish to me. I acknowledge that you didn't say the book is worthless. Apologies.

In that case you're a gentleman and I apologise for any perceived trollish behaviour!

Getting back into mentalism, I went out and got me a copy of this one, great stuff, second time I have owned this (I have brought Corinda's book three times!) great stuff, good for building your own routines.
