This DVD project is truly amazing. First of all the DVD quality and production is so beautiful and well put together and the packaging is stellar. The Lennart Green deck is awesome and has a beautiful design. Stolen cards is an excellent trick and the deck that you get is very entertaining.
1st DVD- Lets just say the performance is so fun to watch and be amazed by.
Then there is the explanation. It shows you how to do everything. The camera angles and diagrams are awesome. You will love this DVD. The only complaint is that the 7-heap cut is a little hard to pick up on, but you will get it after a while, and you will use it. The top shot is only taught on the first disc and is too brief of an instruction. That is the biggest problem of the set.
2nd DVD- This DVD has awesome moves. (About 35) They are hard, but you will learn them eventually. The card separations rock. I love the false rosetta shuffle, its amazingly convincing, the best fake shuffle ever! This DVD goes into deep explanation, and it is worth $100 alone at least. An awesome trick using the mirror count is explained in the bonus section.
3rd DVD- The tricks in this DVD rock. There are 7 of them. My favorites are The Rainman and index red and black which is an out of this world effect that is amazing. Stolen cards is on this DVD and like i said it rocks. A bonus effect is on this disc also which is a solid through solid match routine.
4th DVD- This DVD like the others is awesome. There are 3 card tricks, 3 money tricks, three shell game, an awesome gag, and a cool origami trick. I love the Poker Plus moves and the gag.
Interview- The interview is stunning and interesting, and a highlight of the project. I wish it was longer than it is. It already is about 80 minutes. There is another card trick taught in the interview that is really cool.
Overview- I cant recommend this set enough. It is awesome and every card magician needs it. Trust me and invest your money in it. This is the best purchase I have made in magic ever!

What I loved:
- Full Performance explained. Not like the FISM act on the Green Collection that was only half explained. Here you learn the full act.
- Special Moves, Shuffles and Steals are amazing. Some are very hard to master. Other will take you a week to start using them. Long week
- Interview was really the best. I love a close Interview with the magician. How he started. Very emotional Interview. An Interview like this should be included in any great collection.
What I didnt love:
- Lennart Green its a great magician, he is a MASTER but a terrible teacher.
- Some routines were not very good or entertaining. At the end of the day, you as a magician are an entertainer. You do magic so others can have fun. Lennart Green achieve that with his style that is unique but if you learn some of his magic you really need to adapt it to your own style.
Overall, I highly recommend this collection if you are a Green fan, Love card Magic, Have experience with card manipulation. If you are a beginner you better start with other great collections like Michael Ammars Easy to Master.

First off, let me say the limited edition is just packaged beautifully and comes with Lost Cards, which I've annoyed, er, entertained many people with and it's a jawdropper, and the best thing is it's practically self-working! These cd's really give a good look into Mr. Green's devious thinking behind his ingenious and sometimes very subtle methods. The first disk is one of his killer performances and explanations for everything--every slight, every nuance. Very cool. Disk two is sleights and controls and false cuts/shuffles. I guarantee you will find some invaluable stuff here...not everything is simple, mind you, but there is some incredible, practical stuff here. Disk 3 is several KILLER self-working tricks (Rainman is just amazing and thoroughly astounds people). Disk 4 is some miscellaneous things, like a shell game and his again INGENIOUS twists on coin sleights and effects. There is also a series of interviews which at first I didn't care about, but when I watched them they became my favorite part of the package--Mr. Green genuinely seems as humble as he is talented and is quite candid about his life both inside and outside of magic. Don't skip the interviews! So treat yourself, save up for these CD's and I guarantee you will not only just enjoy watching them, you will learn something, perhaps many somethings, as I have.

Lennart has his own unique style, laid back and relaxed. He comes across as though he is struggling with the cards, making sloppy moves and mistakes - but in reality he is performing miracles with absoloute precision. This is truely great stuff. Some of it is difficu;t and will require a lot of practice but well worth it.
Great for all levels.
There are some self working tricks on DVD 3 which are totally amazing - I have performed Index Red and Black, Stonehenge and Two Dragons getting amazing reactions - so easy when you know the methods, yet some of them still amaze me as I perform them!
Highly recommended and worth every cent.
So much to learn! Report this review

What a great collection of DVD's. For starters, the performances are wonderful. I watched all of them before I even began watching any of the explainations. In my opinion, that alone was worth the price. But the explainations were fantastic, shown from multiple angles, and nearly all of them were new to me. Admittedly, I am a novice in magic, performing for only about a year. However I am convinced that there is a wealth of information here for even a seasoned professional. I highly recommend this set.

The price was high but the value was higher. Lennart is a genius. If I ever get an opportunity to see him in person you can bet I will be there.

This 'masterfile' goes into a lot of detail about everything Mr Green does. He teaches you a whole lot. There isn't just slights, productions and a whole lot of false shuffles; there's gags, small tricks and clever techniques.
He does a good job in teaching and explaining his genius and the different camera angles often help.
The interviews are actually wonderful to watch. They are far more interesting than I originally anticipated. Must watch.
Many of the things this guy does are quite advanced. They will take a lot of practice and patience.
The main problem I encountered with what he taught was that it was very table oriented. I'm the kind of guy that usually finds himself performing standing up and a lot of the techniques that are included in the DVD are very table based. You also have to watch your angles with some of them.
Other than that, I LOVED it. As Mr Green reveals his tricks, you can tell that he aches with every word. He does not want to reveal his creative brilliance and so I understand it pains him to 'give away' his magic. What he reveals, however, is truly remarkable.
If you're patient and disciplined you'll relish this DVD set and I encourage you to buy it.
If you're just looking for an exposure of some of his tricks: don't bother.

Wow, there is so much quality in these videos I can't do it justice with this review.
This author I was reading (I forget which book it was)
mentioned that he saw Lennart Green in a bar do the
Crazy Man's Handcuffs with 2 corks from wine bottles.
I've been searching for that, and it's listed in the contents as "And Many More!!!" in volume 3.
He does it at 1 hour and 35 minutes and 23 seconds into
volume 3, on top of a building with matches.
You can also use toothpicks, cigarettes, and possibly chapsticks (if you have Octopalm, which I bought from Penguin). Nevermind on the chapstick idea...I just tried it and it's too heavy; but I'm definitely doing this with matchsticks (you don't need Octopalm for matchsticks).
In addition to his excellent presentations and teachings, there is also a great 20 minute interview with him at the end of each volume. He tells great stories, for example about Rene Lavand, the amazing one-armed magician who's probably better than you if you're reading this.
