I have Greg Wilson's "On the Spot" James Coat's "Mastering the Art of Pickpocketing", Remington Scott's "Art of Pick-Pocketing" (though I have yet to watch it) and "Techniques of the Professional Pickpocket" What other good resources are out there on this art? I would prefer video instruction rather then a books instructions but all are welcome. I was bummed to find out that Bob Arno and Apollo didn't have any material on the subject.

Well, I have very few resources on it, but I'd recommend just practicing (on friends, inanimate objects, things that won't beat you for taking their watch/wallet). There's only so much that a theory can teach you. It's something that requires a certain finesse that is gained through experience.

Thanks, I've practiced on my younger brother (I stole three things but he noticed two, not bad for my first time =D ) and I have a friend who I try all of my tricks out on first who said he would be my "mark"

Side note: Recommendation!

I learned a great watch steal from Michael Finney's sponge ball routine on World's Greatest Magic: Sponge Balls from L&L Publishing.

Really? Do you happen to have a link to a video? I was planning on getting that DVD anyways to improve my Sponge Ball routine but now I have an extra reason =D

I'm sorry, I don't, but there are several reviews on this forum and the Cafe you can check out. Let me know when you get it, maybe I can answer some questions you might have!

I apologize I phrased that incorrectly. Do you have a link to a video clip of that specific routine?

I was planning on getting the spongeball toolbox but will this one be better? Especially with the added watch steals?
