Just curious... Think a Card, ACAAN, or the Berglas Effect? (I suspect the first...) Eagerly counting the days until folks begin posting butchered and/or faked video presentations of the latter. Chalk it up to morbid curiosity. (One individual in the militarized Green Zone went so far as to call those who choose not to tackle Berglas' monster "dumb.") ;)

No, there are quite a few people whose books were mailed out on May 27 that still haven't received them. All I can tell you is that my printer mailed them incorrectly and they are on the way.

Especially when you are informed that a friend who has ordered much later than you already received his one. BTW is it normal that I didn't get an order confirmation email? The only proof of ordering is the paying as seen on my credit card bill dated with 12th of May.

I am very much enjoying the journey of reading this book.
I have a long way to go but it will be worth it.
Thank you Mr. Kaufman and Mr. Berglas.

Really? I didn't know that somebody here in korea also ordered this book.
Then I can expect that my copy would arrive this week.... Did you pre-ordered?
I ordered in March or April. Can't remember clearly....@_@

Eoin - yes, about two weeks ago (although wouldn't have made any difference as all pre-ordered books were mailed from the same place at the same time)

Friboudi - yes.

I am very happy to say that Berglas arrived today in Vancouver, BC, Canada - hooray for the Posties being back at work!

Just received it now, so only flipped through it so far, but it really looks amazing.

I pre-ordered the book in February. ^^;
As I know, all the pre-ordered book was shipped same day.
Just relieve your concerns.
It doesn't come earlier even though you are lost in the book.
It will be well worth your time and money, I think.

(And, if I remember correctly, I know you although you don't know me.
I saw your nice "clipshift" video.
You may also know "Haehoo" and "Trick".)

For some reason the discussion on exomagic involves people who seem to believe that The Berglas Effect is not described completely in the book exactly as David does it, which is not true. It is described exactly as David does it.

There are also people posting who are making statements about how purchasers will be disappointed because the deck has to be handled. Sometimes you have to handled the deck, but many times you do not. If you read the book carefully you will understand how to increase the odds of not having to handle the deck.

But, all of this is explained in the book, and you have to read and understand the entire book (not possible in one read-through) before bitching about the contents.

Someone could be disappointed to discover that he must perform something :-) LOL and the effect is not a miracle.

David is just a human and not a god.

However, the effects look like a miracle, there are many techniques to make the spectator to forget any handling.

Thank you very much David and your wonderful book.

It's something like this: "Hello. I am ANOTHER crazy Italian, I am lying that I have the book, I am doing a [censored] ACAAN. PLEASE MAKE LOVE TO MY SLIPPERS. Now I join Richard Coughman's GIN FORUM where I make fake nick and try and sell [censored] 12 buck PDF of my [censored] version of ACAAN and then I get all annoyed when people realise"

Ok. I agree. He's a joke. What about Subtle Scam sold by an Italian who goes by Tommy? Is it the same guy? There are positive reviews on the Magic Cafe.

Does anyone have any experience with Subtle Scam? Is it real or just antoher ACAAN scam?

No offense, but being from Italy and having only 2 posts is not a great reference. I'm hoping to get a response from
someone more credible, with more posts and perhapse not someone who could be related to Tommy.

Thanks.

I'm sorry but this is enough, "not shipped correctly" isn't an answer that satisfy me anymore about why i still haven't received my book. I don't know what "correctly" means but for that much time delay it must be posted at the wrong adress, because right now this book had time to make three world travel and never experienced that much delay on anything shipped from any part of the world ( nearly 45 days ! )

As a customer who paid a high price for a book i deserve more than "we don't know when it ll arrive".

Can i have a replacement copy ASAP and send you back the other on when it arrived ? I m leaving on holidays in ten days, and i surely want to have this book with me.

A very disapointed yet hopefull customer.

ps : Even more disapointed knowing for sure that this book is awesome.

Yiyong : Merci pour la lecon de morale, mais tu ne me connais pas, et je ne te connais pas non plus. Donc tu peux te la garder. Si t'es pas content d'un plat dans un restaurant et que je suis la table d' cot je viens pas te faire la leon parce que tu l'a renvoy en cuisine. J'ai pay un produit + les frais de port et il n' est toujours pas arriv apres 45 jours, j' ai le droit de reclamer, c'est mon droit de client et y rpondre s'appel tre commerant. De toute faon c'est pas tes oignons vu que c'est mon achat et mon argent.

Richard : Thanks for ignoring me and +1 the other comment from Yiyong... Great Great consumer service ( you have my money i don't have my book, i need a little more respect than that ). I'm sorry i'll continue to complain if the wait is still going, it's my buyer rights. I know there was "shipping problem" but is it enough to ask me to not be concerned how it wasn't fixed after 45 days ? No. My money, my concern.

I'll be very happy to join the discussion about how the book is cool and how i enjoy it when i'll recieve it.

Anyway have a great week.
