Lennart Green is a card master in a class of his own. His presentation and technique are highly
entertaining, original and education. However this DVD set of Volumes 1-3 is not without flaws. It
contains the act that made him famous, but it does not contain the full sets of explanations for
all of the sleights which he uses. Admitedly, if you watch his performace and instructions
carefully, you can figure out some of the secrets which he does not reveal. On balance, volume one
is probably the only one worth owning and spending years studying and perfecting. It is
encyclopedic, and one day it will become a classic (if it's not already). Volumes two and three are
a little too thin on the contents and the value. I did not like volume two at all, and volume three
I found interesting (the highlight being the fractal harmony stack which he uses), but not worth the
full price. I would recommend buying volume 1 in DVD format, separately if you can, and ignore the
other two volumes. In this set the parts just do not add up to the whole. Note: The material
presented is somewhat advanced.

OK, this set of videos, is not for you people who are new in magic. The sleights that he performs
are very amazing, yet a bit difficult to master. If you are just beginning, you should buy Rocco's
D'lite or something. For those of you who are experienced in magic, this is ONE OF THE BEST VIDEOS
THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN, and it will help you incredibly, practice is needed for this video, so have a
lot of time on your hands!

For all the good things I have heard about Green Magic, I really think that this set was grossy
overhyped. If not that than at least over priced. The amount of material in each does not seem to
justify the price tag. As for what is taught, I'll admit that they most likely will impress laymen,
there are a lot of other things out there that would be a better choice over this. For example,
Greg Wilson's card work (Card Stunts, Pyrotechnic Pasteboards) is extremely visual and in my
opinion, much more impressive. I think the two things that Lennart Green does best are the top shot
and the snap deal, neither of which are taught in these 3 volumes.

This material is challenging. Lennart Green is a card master and his unique thinking really shines
through. The FISM Act on is the best item of the whole set. I remember watching this on World's
Greatest Magic 4. It honestly looks impossible and at first trying to execute it might feel that
way. The other item that I like is the angle riffle shuffle. I love this shuffle and it is very
deceptive and once again, a challenge. If you like card magic and want to perform some deceptive but
challenging material then these videos would be a good investment
Lennart Green has some amazing tricks up his sleeve. These DVDs cover a lot of his material-
including his famous snap deal technique. Straightaway I knew I would love this DVD and I wasn't
wrong- most of the effects on here blew my mind. Worth getting!
This material is great. I love it because there is vital information in here that will raise your
skill to the next level. My favorite out of the three would half to be vol. 2. Don't get me wrong
I love all of them but 2 would be my favorite. I can't wait to get volumes 4, 5, and 6. I already
have volumes 1, 2, 3,and 7(green light). Lennart is truly remarkable. I know he doesn't present
his material well both in performance and explinations, but you can't deny his skill as a card
worker. Maybe that's why he's in constant demand all over the world. ADD TO CART.
I don't understand that anyone can say that this DVD's are a waste. Yes...they cost you money. They
aint the cheapest. If you are looking for "just some good tricks", don't buy this. If you know some
sleights and you want to learm more, BUY THIS.
Lennart Green isn't just showing you some
The way he performs and explains, is so much more then learning some tricks. In my
opinion a lot of DVD's let you copy some good tricks. Lennart Green learns you some tricks and in
the meanwhile, he teaches you how you can use the teached sleights in many other effects. He
encourages you to play with sleights and use your own in between. He shows you some trick and then
you can play with everything you already know, combined with some very good new sleights.
only say EXCELLENT.
Why a 4 instead of a 5 star review....Because it is only DVD 1-3 and not
1-6. I think you should buy them all.
This is without a doubt the best video package. Just the first video alone is enough info to last
you a lifetime. (obviously though the other two have some of the greatest tricks ever) 2 thumbs up
The tricks are very good but he teaching is terrible! He speaks in bad english and its near
impossible to understand. If you can understand him, then it has great tricks and flourishes.

I'm not new to magic but still find this DVD a waste of money. I find Green's magic old fashioned
and boring but thats just my opinion. I think magic should be amazing, cool, and maybe even a bit
