I have always been interested in the magical branch of pickpocketing, like after a show they ask were's my watch, or hat and you say right here in my hand or something like that, so does anyone know a book or DVD that was made specificaly or has some material that explains the art of pickpocketing. Any suggestions would help! And to answer some people questions yes I am only using this for my show and for the spectators entertainment only. :D. Anything at all will help.

I agree that Stealing the Show is a great source. It's personally my favorite. Pickpocketing takes a lot of practice though. It's not something to get into if you aren't willing to spend the time to practice. And Stealing the Show shows a way to practice without human interaction.
