“Like Mitox, the book is a melange of effects, essays, drawings, quirky quotations, and longer routines and variations. For me, the value is in News Deck (an amazing mind reading feat with newspaper clippings), SIRVA (a remote viewing routine and a fabulous ‘Lesley-esque’ utility), and the Quinta force with many variations. The book also has two fully scripted seances!
Overall, we have a lovely new product that will no doubt receive the kudos it deserves!”

“OK, I can safely say it is excellent. I thought Mitox was full of great ideas but this is even better. The Quinta force is very clever indeed and I will definitely be using this in one of its guises. The card effects are also perfect for the type of thing I perform and I am looking forward to roadtesting them. Congratulations to Phill! I heartily recommend this for addition to any serious mentalism library.”
“I have just read both Mitox and Yokai and I agree completely with the sentiment expressed in previous posts – these are fantastic books. First class thinking and amazing value for money. I used Quinta in a close-up show on Friday evening (Chinese coins and a Lota Pot, inspired by Helmain (sp?) but with a story line around the First Emperor and the Terracotta Army (a propos the exhibition currently at the British Museum)) – it went down like a dream.”
“I love the Quinta force. I’m currently writing an opening effect to a new show I’m trying to put together, and it involves Quinta — I have people from throughout the audience call out numbers — eventually different ones are used in different ways, one of them for the Quinta force. Don’t want to go in to too much detail since I’m just putting this together, but bottom line, I love the idea.”
