Hanan,
I hope those smileys mean you're joking, and that you're not seriously offerring an illegal photocopy of the book for sale, right?

Ladies and Gentlemen: Larry Becker is bringing out a new version of "Stunners" in October! Look for the ad in the November issue of Genii.

I paid 250$ long time ago.
Larry Promised that it is a limited edition
so not may magician will have it.
Then he released the soft cover
Now he does it again.
Can you cancel the page in Jenii ?
Can you do something to sop him

Lior, Richard, Paul, Joe (and all!)

Screw the coffee. Lets have a beer! I'm working Magic in the Rockies next week. Meet me there and I'll buy. Jamie's working it, too, and he can drink beer with us!

Then we will all be happy.

That's all anybody REALLY needs.

Best-

Cassidy,

Can't make the Rockies event as I am lecturing that week and can't schedule around it but if I can take a rain cheque - kewl! As for the bong, well it sure wasn't me but the "tea" will be brewing in June for sure and if it doesn;t show up by then, we'll see about replacing it for you!

I heard that the book is not that good.
Can you name 5 strong effects that changed your life for the
money you spent on that book?

How much does he pay for an ad in Genii?
Maybe this is the reason Richard doesn't
say anything

Or maybe it's because Richard has no legal or ethical obligation to do anything about it; he is not responsible for what the advertisers state in their ads. Would you expect the NY Times to pull a Sears ad because Sears was selling something they didn't think Sears should be selling?

Hi fellers,
I'm new here and I must say I'm a bit surprised at all the name-calling and cussin ... Let me say first of all that I love Lior -- he's a great performer, funny, and one of the most intelligent people I know. In my opinion, you ignore what he says at your own risk.
Mental Mysteries by Larson Sr. is indeed a great source if (as with most books) you're willing to read between the lines.
Important phrase here: "Read between the lines."
More later.

I just moved from Israel to London.
Lior is a big name in Israel.
Most of the magicians over there are doing
his act, his style etc.
I think that riggs is right
Read Lior's post again for a lot of
good advice.
I don't know him personaly and I am sorry that
he doesn't post anymore

He can't post here anymore as the web site won't allow him in. (He was banned).

Is it the civil fight with Richard?

I saw somewhere else in this forum that
Racerbamur says that only 5% of Magicana
is real world stuff.

The Harry Lorine reviw is not civil

This is where Lior is coming from. He works for Fortune 500 companies, He works on television in front of audiences of hundreds of thousands at time."

Yes, but that doesn't mean he's any good. Just because he works for large companies and on TV doesn't mean he doesn't suck! I'm not saying he sucks, because I've haven't seen him work (and after reading his snotty posts, frankly I don't care to). However, plenty of people can make the same claim and they stink to high heaven.

Just curious, what would you define as " good" And, how does a person get that apellation. They do something you like or approve of?
Certainly , working for "decent " fees is one measure of success. For example I don't like "rap music" I consider "rap music " an oxymoron. But that's only my opinion. Rappers, have a huge audience and the ones that make gigantic money, I assume to be "good" at what they do. Even if I don't like it. I recognize there is a market for it.
Richard. if I may call you that, do you consider lack of commercial success, makes some one good? Vernon and Slydini never achived commercial success. But (I don't think, that's what made them "good" My mento, Chet Miller once booked "Slydini" for his local Country Club.
He went over like bad breath. The members felt , since they were the employer, the entertainer should come to them, not vice versa. I'm old enough to have seen Vernon and Slydini perform. They were great! But I understand, why, they weren't commercially succesful.

Again, Richard, how would you define good, or at least "doesn't suck"

Just because a person is financially successful (i.e., popular) in his or her particular field does not make that person artistically successful.

Yes, that's why I separated good from success.
So your definition of good is "artistic success"
which is even more nebulous. If by artistic success, do you mean, having mastered techinical aspects of a craft. Again, referring to the Slydini analogy, after the show Tony repeated over and over to my teacher, that he'd fooled them. But, had not, managed to communicate with his audience. So, was he "artistically succesful" because he fooled them. Or sucked, because he didn't entertain them.
Financial success in entertainment is often as much a measure of marketing as performing. The talent of getting shows is often separate from performing shows. Repeat shows probably require both skills
The magical arts are dominated by amateurs. Many have told me, they thought of turning "pro" but didn't want to make the financial sacrifice. I usually say: Copperfield made seventy million last year, not much of a sacrifice (big grin).
I find they often have different standards than
"muggles". The heroes of magic conventions I've attended are often unknown to the rest of the world. They are "good" in the magic convention venue.
Now back to what's good and Lior in particular. I've seen Lior perform a couple of times. In a language, that is not his native one. He owns the stage. He knows how to reach the audience. They laugh when he wants. They want him to succeed. They are in his side. His stage persona is very likable. Now this was at a Psychic Entertainer's convention. So not totally objective. So in my opinion, he's good. But I've given my standards for good, would love to hear yours

Why do you hate him Richard?
The best thing for you to do is to publish a book
about his magic.
All his stuff is very strong and very different from all
the rest that you know.

I know that this is your board and you are the chief
but please try to be less aggressive in your posts

Maxim,
You're correct. This is my board.
You are incorrect in your statement that I "hate" Lior Manor. I don't even know Lior Manor except through the obnoxious posts he made on the forum. Since it's my board, and I thought he was being too obnoxious, I removed his ability to post further messages.
End of subject.
Now perhaps someone might return us to the thread: Mentalism publications.

I just saw Lior's show here in London.
It was for 450 people.
Never saw something like that before.
He has all original stuff,very clever and funny.
It was hour and a half.
The people next to me were blowen away by the mind reading stuff.
Now,when I say original,I mean original!
Try to see him if you can.
He told me that he will be in Europe to the end
of October and then in the USA to the end of November.
