"Myke, you are a great and very generous man, who is always willing to give more and more. A true genius mind."

Salah AAZEDINE

 

"Over the many years that I have been in this business I have devoured countless books, DVD’s and effects in search of ideas that I can adapt for use within my own work. Effects of this nature are very few and far between. What’s even more rare is to find an effect or idea which is so clean and polished that I’m happy to add it straight into my set without change. Myke Phillips has not only provided me with the latter on multiple occasions, he has also provided me with the one routine that I use on an almost daily basis. I am confident that “Olivia” will provide each and every reader with a goldmine of ideas to explore, I for one am very excited about this release and you should be too!"

Michael Murray

 

"Some are well read & full of knowledge. Some are creatively genius, and some are natural entertainers...But its rare to possess all of these gifts.

Myke Phillips happens to be one of them!" 

Bobby Motta

 

"Myke is a dynamic forward thinking Mentalist and his critical eye for detail allows him to create some of the most astounding, baffling and modern Mentalism effects that I've ever witnessed".
