I really wanted to like this lecture. I've been following John Born since the Cutting Edge Cards and Coins DVD came out years ago. But this lecture was lacking.
Although the magic John teaches is quite beautiful, most of it you will not perform. It requires a lot of gimmicks, some you have to make, some you can buy here at Penguin, and others you can only get from John's site. All these gimmicks are pricey, and if used for these effects only, aren't worth the price. The most amazing piece Mr. Born taught was a full coin routine. The only problem is he starts the explanation with when you do it it won't look as good because it uses a gimmick that you probably won't find. The only reason he has it is because he got lucky combining pieces with one trick with another and they don't make them like that anymore.
I gave the lecture 3 stars because John is passionate about magic and a great teacher. But I can only see 5% - 10% of magicians only performing what is taught.
A bit dissapointed Report this review

The lecture in it self is a good lecture, and John Born is an incredible performer. However his matrix routine is heavily gimmicked and you won't be able to do it. His ACAAN demonstration was also very good however I don't think most people will do it because it requires a LOT of practice and still some will have trouble, but I can't say more without revealing the method.
However the lecture was good, and I really liked the first trick he did. Also his views on combining music and magic was good. If you are looking for coin magic he does show some effects and one slight that is really nice and that doesn't require gimicked coins.
Conclusion: It was a good lecture, but i got two tricks i will use, and I don't see many people using more than three of his effects at most. If you got the money go for it, but if you are a student like me and can't afford that many lectures you should buy something else.

I have been subscribing Penguin Live for over a year now. I would say most of the lectures were good in terms of how they teach it, etc, but they weren't very "unique" in some cases. They sometimes were mere "variations" of traditional plot.
John Born's magic is, although using the "traditional" plots such as "Any Card at Any Number", "Matrix", etc., his approach and mastermind behind each trick is brilliant and unique
I would say this was one of the top five lectures I've had in almost over 50 lectures

This was a great lecture. Very informative and professional. John did a great job. His style is unique and intriguing...his skills are polished and clean.
If you are like me and have read all of John's books, but have yet to see him perform, you need to get your hands on this lecture.
If you have never heard of John Born...you need to get this lecture.
The ACAAN was worth the price of the lecture. ;)
two thumbs up ! Report this review
