3.0 out of 5 stars Sack this man's editor - if he has one!
I bought this book to unpick some of the tricks and psychology behind people like Derren Brown. It's right to say that the meat of what Royle offers is there: he dishes the dirt on the world of pyschics. But, and it's a big but, his style is like a cross between a teenage diarist and self publicist.

I bought this book to unpick some of the tricks and psychology behind people like Derren Brown.

But, and it's a big but, his style is like a cross between a teenage diarist and self publicist.

Read it if you can bear it. It won't disappoint you in terms of the information but it really is hard work.

And yes, you could get rich doing what he suggests. But you'd have to lose your conscience first - or do what Derren Brown does so well: admit that all he does is based on trickery - and then still dazzle you with it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Quite a disappointment once the magic failed to appear..., 13 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Confessions of a Celebrity Psychic: How to Become Rich and Famous as a Fraudulent Psychic Entertainer and Consultant (Paperback)
After reading several very promising reviews about this book I was more than a little disappointed when I read it for myself...

Although quite full of fairly interesting facts the book as a whole fails to hang together in a very cohesive way, and I was left with the impression of having availed myself of a fairly incoherent string of consciousness rather than being given a very carefully reasoned schooling towards a magical education.

The book is also quite badly written in that it is full of grammatical errors and quite annoying in its use of some very puzzling and ad hoc capitalization. For all those reasons, then, I'd give this one a miss.

Other people have said this about the contents:

"The methods that Jonathan explains are both practical and professional and indeed for the modern publicity and success seeking Psychic

Entertainer they should prove invaluable! Royle made his name almost a household

word in the UK and in his book he generously reveals his bizarre and unique methods, for the very first time! I feel that all Mentalists,

Psychics and Hypnotists can learn much from his modern & pioneering approach!"

MR EDDIE BURKE - MENTALIST & HYPNOTIST

"Mr Royles suggestions, advice and routines are solid, practical and seem to be grounded in experience! Someone who tried this approach

would probably recoup their investment quite quickly and its true to say that Jonathan

Royle has used the techniques he reveals to garner an awful lot of Publicity"

MICHAEL CLOSE - MARKETPLACE SECTION

MAGIC MAGAZINE - JUNE 2002

If you are a Psychic Entertainer or Reader looking for something novel to add to your repertoire that will get you noticed then this is the

book for you! If you'd rather not get great advice on how to gather lots of Free Media

Publicity for your talents then bypass this book!

As far as readings is concerned you will learn about Belly Button Reading and Pet Paw Readings. His method of Belly Button Reading -

nicely named as Navel Gazing - is a case study of how to take a standard New Age

belief (such as Chakra Points) and turn them into a convincing, commercial and fun method of reading.

You may not take up Navel Gazing Yourself but you will certainly be inspired to come up with your own original reading methods. This is

also the first time I've seen mention of Psychic Healing in a text for Mentalist's and his

handling of it is something I find acceptable. You don't make any outrageous claims and what you do could well actually help people!

What's great in particular about this book is that it doesn't just give you some great "how tos" but also tells you WHAT to do with the

methods. You'll find out how he has successfully used his methods of Belly Button

Reading and Paw Reading for pets to regularly get on Radio, Television and to get lots of features in National Newspapers and Magazines.

As if learning how to read Belly Buttons and Dog's Paws isn't enough you also get a heap of stunts suitable for the Psychic Entertainer that

are practically guaranteed to get you noticed! Whilst some of them may not be

entirely original, Jonathan gives them an update and puts his own unique spin on them. Some of them are risky however and it has to be

said you'd need to be pretty sure of your aims to want to carry them out.

Where else would you find valuable information on publicity gaining gems as "Hosepipe Readings" or creating designer babies by

Astrology?

All in all, this is a valuable resource for anyone interested in gaining a reputation as a Psychic Wonder Worker - Royle's Cold Reading

methods are amazingly simple and yet uncannily effective & Powerful!

FINDLAY HOSIE - PROFESSIONAL PSYCHIC ENTERTAINER

His knowledge emanates from the page, and enthuses the reader with new ideas, principles and concepts that would otherwise have not

been apparent.

The originality of thought that he injects into each stage of the courses he has written, means that any purchaser simply has to attempt

the techniques which are contained inside, to be assured of success.

He is a confident and calming tutor, you just know that whatever questions you may have will be answered within the body of his eminent

texts, and that your education will be a full and thorough one.

Jonathan clearly scribes, with detail and effort, in such a manner as to inspire and to give you that 'Eureka' moment. That's the moment

when, at last, you fully understand what has been eluding you and that has failed to be

taught to you, in some so-called 'manuals' on the subject.

Everything is written in a language, which we all can understand, and in a

manner which makes pleasant and stimulating reading. I would unreservedly recommend any Psychic and/or Hypnotic training product by

Royle!
