Elliott J. Bresler – Switchcraft
I’m Elliott Bresler and my e-book， Switchraft， is now available at imentalism.com.
The billet switch is one of the most powerful tools in Mentalism. I’d always marveled at the wonderful assortment of entertaining billet routines in the literature. Later， I came to realize that those effects are just the beginning. With a billet switch， you can present just about any mental effect imaginable. There really are no limits.
Unfortunately， I’m absolutely terrible at sleight of hand. I tried the classic switches and failed miserably. I searched and searched for easier billet moves. I found a few “close calls”， but as much as I practiced， I was never able to get 100% comfortable with them.
Finally， I decided to try creating some new techniques; moves so easy that even I could do them.
I set two goals for each technique. They were：
- The move had to be VISUALLY PERFECT! I perform close-up and one-on-one mentalism. My spectators are usually seated right in front of me， and sometimes stare directly at my hands. I needed techniques that could withstand that kind of scrutiny.
- The move had to be EASY enough that I could actually pull it off
Thankfully， after much hard work， I finally succeeded in meeting my goals. Over time， I created a series of moves that are so easy， even I could do them. A fair number of the techniques could even be classified as SELF WORKING. Believe me; if I can do them， you can too.
Of course， the book isn’t just about moves. Once you master the techniques (and you WILL master them)， you’ll want to put them into action right away.
In the book， I’ll teach you the theory behind billet routines. When we’re done， you won’t need other people’s effects. You’ll have all the tools required to create your own customized routines anytime you want. Of course， as examples， I also teach a lot of my own strong material. Still， nothing beats a customized effect of your own creation. You’ll see.
The introductory price is just $19.95

Here’s What People Are Saying About Switchcraft：
“This book is filled with love… Yes， love. Elliott loves billets and he loves switching them. There is a lot of great work inside. If you are a pro， amateur or just plain billet crazy， then this is something you need to put in your library. You won’t be disappointed.”
“I simply love your original Switchcraft and all the supplements. I cannot believe you continue to send new material every so often. I applaud you for your fine work and deep insights! Thank you.”
“I gave your book a quick once-over and find it to be much more than just switches — I will spend many happy hours absorbing it all! You have included some great thinking in all phases of billet work including complete routines and photos to make learning easy. Your work should definitely become a classic in the field! Thank you for making this work available to the community.”
“This is a brilliant primer on billet work. It has some novel improvements on published techniques， most of which are clever and easy to learn. The book should serve as the first book for someone who is interested in doing billet work. Through his careful scholarship， Elliott has screened through most of the literature in the field and presented basic ideas that are pregnant with possibilities. I wish I would have had such a book to learn from when I started billet work 40 years ago. Highly recommended.”
“I do believe that Elliot’s work belongs on a bookshelf next to Al Mann’s epic Purloined Thought. His book will go down in history as being truly
