How has Magic changed your life
The importance of consulting with someone
and answering the heckler who says, "If you're a mind reader what am I thinking of right now?" (I loved his response)
Is it well taught: Peter follows a train of thought, but he's a very organic teacher and he allows the moments to flow into each other. He tries to cover all of his material, but at the same time really tries to answer the questions of the audience.
My thoughts (what I personally liked/disliked): I loved his stories, examples and theory even much more than the tricks itself and I think that's the benefit of getting something like this.
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) like most of Peter's work this is really geared to stage mentalism. These are not tricks that work as well on your friends.
Overall score: 10/10
