What can I say, Paul Gertner is a legend. This lecture was everything I expected and more. I've been a fan of Paul's for over thirty years and have seen him lecture before. He's the best at creating memorable Magic.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
Paul is probably best know for his "Steel Cups & Balls" and lets not forget his very popular "Unshuffled" card effect. Just to see Paul perform these two signature effects was worth the cost of the lecture for me.
He spends a lot of time explaining how to properly perform "Unshuffled" and shares stories of how versatile and effective this effect is in the cooperative world. Take it from me, if you put in the practice this effect can make a career.
Paul is a wonderful performer with great stories to tell as well. Paul has won numerous Awards in Magic, including FISM. He is the only Magician to be on the Tonight Show with Carson three times and was invited to Carson's home as well. There's a reason for his success, he's one of the best on the planet. Thank you Penguin for another great lecture. If you appreciate elegant magic, order this lecture, You'll enjoy watching this living legend work and teach it all to you.

Paul Gertner´s magic is strong. This lecture made my day. So many great magic effects packed into one lecture.1 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
This lecture will make you smile big, fun and practical effects, sure.
And, I like Paul´s performing style, smooth and clear.
Unshuffled - my favourite. A true worker for laymen.
Gertner's Fechter or Fechter's Gertner Report this review

If you stacked Fechter on top of Fechter and merged them into one person, you MIGHT be able to gain all the wisdom and "secrets" of Paul Gertner. And if you could do that, you'd be hard pressed to film it all in ONE day.
You're wasting your time reading this. GET this.
Immensely inspiring Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 6th, 2016
This is easily my favorite of the Penguin lectures
I have seen so far. The reason for that is that
you not only get a lot of great tricks (like probably
the best cups and balls routine ever, or the wonderful
Unshuffled), you also get a lot of inspiration. From
tips that will help you in magic *and* in life
(see the Johnny Carson story, for example), to tips
specific to magic, like some really great little
details on the classic force.
All of that, and you get to spend 3.5 hours with a very
likeable and genuine human being whom you just can't help
This one is a home run, Penguin.
Paul Gertner LIVE Rocks! Report this review

I love this video! I was so happy to finally find an awesome presentation of the top change and specifically, Eddie Fechter's "Be Honest, What Is It?" Of course the entire video is great. I especially like Paul's unique cups and balls routine with the metal ball bearings.
Definitely worth the price and then some!
Outstanding! Report this review

Paul Gertner presents an enormous number of effects and explains them well. There is something for everyone at every level. This lecture is well worth the money. A lot of the effects Gertner presents are ideal for trade shows and walk around. His cups and balls routine, using steel balls, is a modern classic. If you love magic, you'll love this lecture.
Great Lecture!!! Report this review

Well instead of saying how great it was, and it was!, and saying everything everyone else has said, still Great! - The thing that hit home with me is his insight: to try to get you to know (relative) who you are compared to what others think you are - is the same or close... - as close as one can do, in other words your inside self sees the outside self as others do, not an easy thing to do... regardless he's one smart guy! :)
