Greg Arce says: “David has constructed an easy to follow path for the taming and use of your nail writers. He not only gives you some cool presentations, but also provides the underlying back stories as to why he does them his way. He also gives you a tour of all types of nail writers and how you practice this particular skill. Those that never tried will learn a lot and those that already use them will get some clever ideas and subtleties. Along with nail writing ideas he adds his take on using body language and cold reading skills. Well worth having these ideas on hand."
