Who Is The Mindreader?
A while ago Corey Burke was weekly magic failure. He either doesn't know or doesn't care, as I am still getting his newsletter. Right now he is doing advertisement for a soon to be released product called: The Revelation Effect.
According to Mr. Burke he does it for a friend called "The Mind Reader". Well whatever!
But what is "The Revelation Effect"?
Both pre launch websites are bullshitting you into loving this upcoming product.
Number 1: telling you all the 3 common truth secrets to become a great mentalist.
Number 2: telling you an anecdote which is probably a lie, yet even if true, doesn't tell you how good the product is.
So if I get this right, and I might be dead wrong here, the following has taken place. Corey Burke who is The Mind Reader does a series of free tricks, by that method he gets a lot of people to subscribe to his newsletter. The whole purpose is to have a lot of people's email addresses interested in magic.
Now he can write up his bullshit, about a probably not so great mentalism effect, and hype that stuff before it gets released, probably selling a few copies more.
This might be good business practise, but I feel a bit used. Just saying.
