“Lincoln produces one of the finest boon style writers, ever. Now, he has produced a DVD to match with plenty of ideas and discussions with some of his very creative friends on the subject of mentalism. If you are a mentalist and don’t do nailwriting now–you should, and starting with Lincoln’s excellent boonwriter and this DVD is a great place to be. If you use nailwriting, you should definitely check both out!”
–Allen Zingg Mentalist and Creator of Allen Zingg’s Master Course in Billets (four volume DVD set)
“I have always been a fan of Lincoln’s Best Boon writer. It really is the best I have ever seen. Lincoln knows the importance of making a personal connection with spectators, and the routine by Greg Arce alone is worth the price.”
– Kenton Knepper
“I can recommend “Shh… The Sneaky Handwriting Handbook vol.1” without reservation. And this is true whether or not you have or ever plan to use a NW as I’ll explain in a moment.
Lincoln takes to the streets and shows you performances of 10 effects with his LBB. You get to see some seriously strong spontaneous reactions from a variety of people. One of my favorite NW effects is here; Greg Arce’s Adams Prediction.
Lincoln is a very enjoyable performer to watch in action and he demonstrates a wide range of effects possible with a NW. But these 10 effects are the small tip of a large iceberg. With a NW and the info shared on these DVDs, the number of effects possible is truly infinite.
The explanation section on “Shh..” is thorough and full of great ideas to inspire your own creativity. Lincoln shows the nuts and bolts of the LBB and how to get the most out of it. The majority of this section, though, is applicable to any NW.
Lincoln shares a ton of subtleties about everything from how to display the card after writing to how to effectively personalize each performance. Using a NW with a variety of envelopes and wallets is explored. He gives solid information on how to manage participants in different circumstances, including some interesting ideas about what to do if they insist, “show me yours first!” All this on the first disk.
As good as this all is, and it is very good, it is disk 2 that I’m most excited about. And this disk is why I mentioned above that everyone will want “Shh…”
Disk 2 is comprised of four interviews. Lincoln “stalks” four mentalists; Andy Nyman, Greg Arce, Francis Menotti and Jon Stetson and talks with them extensively about anything and everything to do with mentalism.
The interviews are casual and wonderful. There is so much good information shared I wouldn’t know where to start. It is pure pleasure to see and hear these gentlemen talk about what they know and love best. And for that we have to thank Lincoln. Profusely.”
