This is getting silly; you're not going to let go, are you, Ian? The concept, title, you refer to is Total The Series, Plus. So, to use "my vernacular", I teach about SIX different versions of the idea. Many different ways of PRESENTING IT (wish I knew how to bold and italicize PRESENTING IT) - as a straight vertical column, in cross form, wheel form, right-side up or upside-down V form, etc. You're again, referring to ONE of the many. I guess I must be "daft" to think for an instant that you know what you're talking about.
Also, I'll put some of my phrases here - meaningless if you're not there in the book - but just want to show "presentation", which is what you're "spewing" about.
Okay, at a quick glance-through: "Tell your spectator to..." "You don't look." "Draw the adding line..." "Turn away as quickly as you can." "You can say that you've memorized all the numbers and will add them in your mind." "Explain to your spectator...you don't look as he does it." "Look at the filled-in cross for A SPLIT SECOND - and say "I've got it!" "When doing the...you don't want to make it too obvious that..." "When my spectator is adding all the numbers...I help him." "What I do is SKIP AROUND, crossing out numbers as I..." "In the above layout, I'd have him..." Instruct your spectator to..."
ALL THE ABOVE ARE PRESENTATIONAL SUGGESTIONS. I am KNOWN for teaching presentation of my effects and routines. I really don't know what in the world you're talking about. Do you? I know you're "trying to help" Ian, but please forgive one of my rusty platitudes: IF YOU REALLY WANT TO HELP ME, DON'T HELP ME! It kind of fits perfectly here.
And, NO, YOU DO NOT HAVE MY PERMISSION TO "RE-WRITE" IT HERE. And, there are so many effects in this book THAT ARE PROBABLY HUNDREDS of times better/stronger, etc., than the one you've decided to "pick on" that it would never, as you put it, "increase interest in it" - a) IT WOULDN'T. b) I'd rather you didn't help me to "increase interest in it." Remember? IF YOU REALLY WANT TO HELP ME, DON'T HELP ME! Why in the world would I ever want you, need you, of all people to, ask you to, help me "increase interest in any of my items!?!? I WOULDN'T; don't need your help. I purposely mentioned the section of the book above so that those who have it and are interested, can go there and see for themselves. Those who don't have the book, can purchase it when I re-print - I sure as hell don't want them reading a re-write of one of, ANY of, my items, by you. I really don't think I want to discuss this with you any more. You're so wrong, it isn't funny, and I realize that I simply call attention to it by responding. But I know from experience that you are a "persister." You are, of course, entitled to your opinion, but PLEASE, please, DON'T HELP ME!
Take care, HARRY.
