Disappointing Report this review

This is the typical way mentalism has NOT to be done. To many props, to much cards, not to mention that you have to buy6 of 8 magicians found this helpful.
apps, special decks etc. The performer seems very nervous, very bad presentation and very poor effects.
Perhaps fine for begginers but very poor for magicians with knowledge.

Terrible! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 1st, 2015
I haven't written a review in about two years, despite having bought over a hundred products in that time, but I wanted to correct the terrible misconceptions that some of the other reviewers have been spreading. This is among the worst lectures in the history of magic. You will gain nothing useful from it. There are a couple of formerly decent tricks that he completely destroyed with his variations. Then there are a couple of awful tricks that are purely Max's. His presentation is so dry and boring. He also probably messed up his own tricks at least fifteen times, especially while performing MUD. It's pathetic. Additionally, you need to buy something from Max to do anything. I don't understand how anybody found anything of use from this. This was over three hours of my life I want back...3 of 3 magicians found this helpful.

There seemed to be only one effect that didn't require the purchase of something from Max and that effect was an awful lot of setup for an effect I found rather dry.3 of 3 magicians found this helpful.
I did not like his performance and he seemed to fumble a lot. He comes off as more of a car salesman as he spends much time explaining effects that can only be done by purchasing his expensive products and an IPhone. Sorry Droid phone owners. A big disappointment. I think there should be a limit of how many effects in a lecture require expensive products pedaled by the magician. I prefer Greg Rostammi for apps as his are priced much more affordably
Not too great Report this review

I dont have a problem with max. I think his stuff is great but for some reason the lecture itself I found very blah. I should have waited to purchase this and not rushed into it. I will not use any of this stuff, maybe 1 thing for the lecture. Alot of the other stuff requires other purchases such as a special deck or online subscription. I have purchased many other lectures and to be honest this right now is the worst investment I made in terms of live lectures.5 of 8 magicians found this helpful.

I had never heard of max before this lecture. This man is a creative thinker. You can tell he puts a lot of work into creating his effects. Mental killer and MACAAN are freakin awesome, but the one that impressed me the most was MUD. Such an awesome principle that's super clever with multiple applications. I will definitely be on the lookout for anything max releases after seeing how clever he is. IMO this was a great lecture!!!4 of 6 magicians found this helpful.
Informative Lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 3rd, 2012
Max was kind enough to share over 3 ½ hours of material and thinking. He presented material that could benefit everyone from hobbyists performing for family and friends to working professionals. The Q&A had invaluable advice and I would have bought the lecture for the Q&A alone. The other two stand-out items (for me) were his take on the Spectator Cuts to Aces routine and a mind reading/multiple card revelation effect (an effect Max has kept under wraps for over 20 years).3 of 4 magicians found this helpful.
Great lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 3rd, 2012
Max's lecture was outstanding with the wide variety of effects he demoed with just a few props.....trust me this guy is a real world thinker and creator of top shelf performing pieces....he just scratched the surface of what he is capable of in the lecture ....the performing part he leaves up to you and your capabilities as a performer....do yourself a favor and check out his webssite or contact him regarding other effects he has created you won't be disappointed ....3 of 4 magicians found this helpful.
Mixed Report this review

The last few minutes redeemed the lecture. Unfortunately, I found many of the routines somewhat convoluted (serial number revelation to card trick to disappearing card to disappearing bill to bill in strange location to card on bill to... I lost track!).2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
I also found little new in the methods -- only their combination was innovative. Max's presentation was not terribly inspired (although he was playing to a group of seasoned magicians and not a lay audience) and his technique at times painfully transparent.
He demoed some very nice apps, and if you are into that you might have got your money's worth... although the majority of the routines that he showed require you purchasing a gimmick or an app from him! More like a sales promo than a lecture.
In the last five minutes he taught (seemingly begrudgingly) a nice impromptu set with cards (in the spectators' hands no less) which was refreshingly simple, direct and usable.
nice job! Report this review

I thought this lecture was a lot of fun and filled with unique insights and effects. And certainly the best interview yet. If only we all could work magic in gentlemen's clubs. I've seen quite a few penguin lectures. To see the very top guys in the business fumble props, mess up sleights, and show nerves clearly demonstrates how difficult these very one sided lectures must be. I thought Max handled it as well as anyone. Did I love everything? No. I don't agree with his thinking on the bill effect at all. In fact I hate it. But as I said on the cafe, it's one trick in a 3.5 hour lecture, chock full of interesting stuff. Nice job, Max.3 of 5 magicians found this helpful.
You get nothing out of this lecture Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 2nd, 2012
This lecture was not good at all. None of the tricks were that strong and the MACAAN that the other reviews praise seems over complicated and not strong because you are using technology.3 of 5 magicians found this helpful.
His first trick is a lie detector effect that goes on for too long. A lay audience would loose interest and it has no really big finish to it. The next trick with a bill just has so much going on that it losses impact.
A lot of the lecture consists of tricks with the App that Max has created. If you don't own an iPhone or iPad then that is a large section of the lecture wasted.
The Q and A was quite interesting but apart from the Q and A and the envelope switch, this lecture has taught me nothing.
