If you have read the description of the four effects included with The Xpert, and these effects appeal to you, then by all means get it. I can assure you that nothing has been left out of the descriptions, as I have a personal distaste against deceptive advertising (like you, I have fallen for it repeatedly).
Also, in addition to these four effects, there are a couple more on my website, including the Bending Coin effect, which I've been told is worth the price of The Xpert all by itself. It's certainly the effect I do most often with The Xpert.
Finally, I should tell you that I'm working on a booklet or a DVD (I'm still ironing that out) as a followup to the one included with The Xpert, which will detail several other routines -- many of them submitted by Xpert users both famous and underground. That should be coming out in a couple of months.
If you would like to read some reviews of The Xpert, these threads just about cover it:

Also, there are 12 pages(!) of discussion at the Cafe, and a rave of a review in the September 03 issue of Genii.
If, after reading all this, you have a specific question about The Xpert that is not answered above (and good luck coming up with one), feel free to drop me a PM.
Thanks to Neil Tobin for this bit of writing.
