It was a good DVD but I wouldn't say you NEED this DVD. I've been performing restaurant magic for awhile before this DVD came out and after watching it, it only reinforced a few things that I already knew. A lot of it is common sense...so I guess a lot of people here at penguin should buy it because of that.
I have been working restaurants for 9 years now. Yes, I learned something from this DVD! It is very well done, it goes into things that people (yes even veteran performers) overlook. I put away all flash paper after the night club fire in Delaware (or Jersey or wherever) because my restaurants got afraid of it. Well I brought it out again and it KILLS!!
Kosmo is THE magician's magician (even though Daryl uses that term) he has forgotten more than the rest of us put together will ever learn. If you want to be a success, get this DVD, learn it and use what it teaches you.
