Customer reviews for James Went's Meditations

Simon Sutherill

At best I’m an amateur magician but more likely described as someone with a passion for magic. I’m not a great fan of “4 of a Kind productions” and I had never found a sandwich effect which has excited me. So why on earth did I purchase James Went’s “Meditations” download from Vanishing Inc Magic? To be honest I’m a sucker for quotes from magicians for whom I have the utmost respect. The product description included Andi Gladwin, Anthony Owen, Dave Forrest, Michael Murray, Andy Nyman, Roddie McGhie all waxing lyrical about James and this product. Phil Shaw shared a link on facebook adding his glowing recommendation to the mix … So I bought the download purely on their words alone.

This is, quite possibly, the best purchase I have made all year. Considering I’d initially counted out a lot of the content by being a naive idiot with my pre-conceived ideas about “4 of a Kind productions” and sandwiches, my biggest take home is “Roy’s Sandwich” (yes, a sandwich effect!). This one effect has changed my mind about sandwiches and therefore alone it was worth the cost of the download(s) and more! I will definitely be practicing and using it. The effects are all great and I can see most of them easily fitting into a worker’s repertoire.

The techniques and thoughts which are taught are well explained and I think will be an invaluable resource for anyone.

Jame's comes across really well and I really couldn’t recommend this enough!
