Not to be disagreeable, but I just got the Stealing Pips DVD today, and while I think it's a great DVD, I'm not sure it's for beginners. I just started into card magic about a month ago, and Oz uses a few terms I'm not familiar with. I'd definitely advise the Royal Road to Card Magic book first (cant' recommend that one enough) then maybe the Michael Ammar DVDs (I think these are easier sleights for the most part).

Again, Stealing Pips is wonderful material, but I think beginners would be overwhlemed. I'll probably be asking where to find explanations of a few of the terms myself.

Eric.

This Dvd has been marketed to be mainly at intermediate levels. It has very visual changes and moves. However it does require some skill and understanding of cards. If your son is not a complete novice then this Dvd may be a really good thing. If he is a semi-novice you may want to get a book or dvd that teaches the skills required to do some of the techniques.

A good resource would be "The Royal Road To Card Magic".

I think this DVD is marketed for intermediates and rightfully so. It teaches some good card magic sleights but other sleights should be mastered first before trying to tackle this DVD.

I considered myself a beginner when I bought Stealing Pips. With practice, they are easy to master. Oz does a great job explaining every little sleight used in every trick.

A really good Dvd to get is "Basic Card Techniques" by Richard Kaufman. He explains everything in detail and like the title suggests it's all the basics to get you started. Good information and theres no fillers. It's all cards.

I dont feel that it is suitable for beginners. If you can find me a beginner that can confidently perform the Bertram change than you have me sold. I would have held off until he learned some basic sleights.
