"For the casual performer this is gold. I loved this. Beware that these are OPPORTUNISTIC methods. This is NOT something to rely on to perform at a given moment. Rather, these are tools you have (or that THEY have) and that, when the opportunity arises, will give you invaluable information. For free! Info which will make you look like a mind-reader, a shaman controlling the elements... If you know Francis, you know his material is solid, tried and tested. And this makes no exception. A no-brainer."
- Phedon Bilek
"P.O.K. is a very interesting compilation of practical tools that given the proper setting and context to apply them, will allow you to have several miracles at your disposal."
"If you want to have mentalism available to you when the moment is right, then I would pick this up."
- Alejandro Hinojosa Cantu
P.O.K. (Pieces of Knowledge) is a collection of thoughts centered around the theme of situational mentalism.
You will learn how to recognize and exploit your environment. And when the time is right, you will have some killer miracles up your sleeves!
First, bear in mind that none of the effects you will read are intended to be performed "straight out of the box".
Instead, you will be equipped with a set of impromptu tools and hacks to use at a moment's notice in the appropriate circumstances, thus taking advantage of a particular situation to create stunning feats of jazz mentalism.
In other words, you may not necessarily be able to use all the effects at your next gig.
Yet, when the opportunity arises, you will be ready to stun your audiences (and badly fool a few fellow performers along the way!).
Decoder: A pin-number/credit card routine where you easily demonstrate your ability to obtain a four-digit passcode at a moment's notice. No preshow, nothing is written down, no math.
Linked: During a corporate event, you are able to walk up to people and reveal their names, date of birth, as well as a wide range of information about their lives. Nothing is written down, no questions asked, you do not touch the spectator's phone, just direct mind reading.
Cloud Buster: You are seemingly able to predict and control the weather at will. For instance, you can summon the rain, snow or even hail like a real wizard. This is the kind of stuff that could genuinely start a cult!
Voyage: This piece of knowledge allows you to divine a location. This could be a place the participant is originally from, or where they have recently been on holiday. This information can then be directly fed back within the context of a reading or other mentalism effects.
iSpy: A collection of pieces of knowledge that will enable you to obtain private pieces of information using a smartphone. Instead of routines per se, they consist of interesting features you might want to take advantage of in the right context. Of course, it goes without saying that you should only make use of the following hacks for entertainment purposes. I shall not be held responsible for any ill-intentioned usage of this material!
