Re: The Miracle ACAAN // Interesting Story

"the response has been overwhelmingly brilliant,..." Are those responses from relatives and freinds? Certainly not from RATIONAL (as Richard puts it) human beings. Please don't insult our inteligence, my brain cannot take your CAAN (not ACAAN) anymore. I'm having a mental breakdown. :eek: ...

Re: The Miracle ACAAN by Lloyd Barnes

"I think it's better for others to see the negative reviews along with the positive."


What POSITIVE reviews? Who, when, where? Am I missing something?

Re: New Book Coming on the Card Magic of David Berglas

But Bob, there are other ways to retube your Mesa Boogie MK IV, and I'm not saying that your way is bad but there are definitely easier and faster ways. I retubed mine with a PT-6969 V. That way, you don't even have to mess with the sockets. Just my two cents!

Re: New Book Coming on the Card Magic of David Berglas

Friboudi, just because the Berglas Effect is on a piracy site doesn't mean it is Richard's book. You can't be serious. And you expect us to thank you?

Occam's Razor: The simplest explanation...

How about pure chance, that would be the simplest explanation!

So, is he using a stooge who can read the number on a paper stuck to his front zipper pants or some elaborate high tech secretive Taiwanese invention?

Re: New Book Coming on the Card Magic of David Berglas

Simple, but I feel that I have to reiterate. The first time the host throws the ball, it doesn't matter who catches it as any card can be called by the catcher and no stooge is necessary. The camera shows the ball trajectory landing clearly on a random spectator (3:12-3:16). The second time the host...

Something similar to the EMC perfomance; a method possibly using STOOGES!

Here is the poorly edited ACAAN by Lu Chen:

Take a closer look at 8:08 and at 8:38... precisely 30 seconds went by but the cards have magically moved!

Re: New Book Coming on the Card Magic of David Berglas

Besides using conferderates (rose thrower and catcher), what about the video editing never showing the rose catcher in the action of catching the rose? The misderiction occurs when the rose is thrown on a cameraman. The spectators (at least on video) never see any catching of the roses. It appears s...

Lu Chen performs his ACAAN here (last week at EMC), in front of David berglas himself: http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMjgzOTIzMTEy.html Enjoy! There is something disturbing about Lu Chen performing the Berglas Effect in front of Berglas. Imagine how Berglas must have felt when he saw this CLEAN vers...

Richard, of course you say to everyone the same thing " be patient", but you have to understand that it's not an answer that satisfy any customer in any kind of business, even more if the customer have pre ordered ( give you trust and money ) and paid for premium/standard shipping. "...

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.

Is this thread only going to be devoted to ordering and reception issues rather than deep discussion about the book itself? :/ Here is a link to a short discussion about the book.

Re: New Book Coming on the Card Magic of David Berglas

First, I'd like to thank Mr. Kaufman for all of his efforts in bringing this amazing book to the magic community.

I am curious about the number of books that were published and how many are still available for sale.

Thank you.
