Contemplations is an 100-page PDF ebook, which contains seven routines, five essays and a "bonus" ideas section. In this lengthy ebook, you will learn how to affect the mind-body connection, solve crimes with your mental abilities, teach people how to access their subconscious clock (with a wristwatch) and how to control people's minds with three words. The secrets of "real" mind reading with dollar bills and the ability to use your fingertips to sense the colors of playing cards, are revealed. Most importantly, there are a number of essays that challenge us to think about the plausibility of our routines, how to improve rapport and that include practice techniques befitting a mentalist. I am truly proud of these ideas and I am confident that you will be pleased. That is my sincere hope.

Sean's creativity and obvious passion for the art of mentalism is clearly evident. The purchasers of this well-written manuscript will love the thought-provoking essays that are supported by a strong selection of fresh ideas and routines. These presentations are not only baffling for your guests but are also enjoyable to perform. Already, I have applied principles from these effects to my resort performances. Sean Water's "Contemplations" is a wise, smart buy.
