"This trick is perfect for beginners to professionals. I believe it will fool not only the audience, but also most magicians. The Trick That Can Be Explained would be good for closeup, restaurant, walkaround, or parlor magic, and I think the reaction from the audience is worth the price." -Arnie Levin, Linking Ring Magazine
"This one is a blockbuster for any working performer." -Marc DeSouza, M-U-M Magazine
"I would encourage you to look carefully at his presentation. It isn’t overwrought; in fact it’s almost easy to miss in the text. Consider specifically his use of the Tamariz Theory of the Magic Way to both eliminate the methods, highlighting the strengths of his approach, and establish a rhythm, a direction, at the conclusion that leads the audience to a point of heightened focus, tension, and then release.
That’s what makes this piece strong, and one would not be getting full value from their purchase if they overlook that." -Brad Henderson, Genii Magazine
"It is clean, and everything ins in the spectator's hands. No outs or switches, the prediction always matches." -Bob Gill, MagicSeen Magazine
"It comes proper old school in a four page booklet which is brilliant because within 15 minutes you have read that and you can learn how the tricks done and it happens within your mind. You read it from here, create your own presentation, your own personality is brought to it and you have something original and amazing which is how it should be done which is what we are losing from magic."

"There will be those of you who will make this a staple in your act. The ending is a stunner and something you'll want to do over and over. I hope, if you buy Mark's effect, you'll be one of those guys." -Rick Carruth - The Magic Roadshow, Reviewer
"Any effect where the spectator has this much control has always intrigued me. The more they control the deck and you don't, the more convincing the magic is. This covers all the bases nicely. If you make the purchase, this is something you will use. Highly recommended."
