"There are only a few people in the world that I would consult with, share ideas, get advice, and their critique about magic, such a man is Norman Beck." -Asi Wind

"Norman Beck fools me every time I see him. He was kind enough to let me put one of his effects on my last TV Special. He is very clever." -David Blaine

"Norman Beck’s disarming character, wit, and charm hide his impeccable skills; the world is lucky he became a magician instead of a con man." -Jared Kopf

"Watching Norman Beck perform magic is a little like watching Forrest Gump run for President. He’ll fool you badly (and you’ll like it)." -Stephen Minch

"I have seen Norman in action a number of times. He knows how to entertain an audience. I think he always makes this the primary goal when he selects his effects." -Chuck Smith

"Norman is brilliant. He has created some of the seminal tricks in Magic and you should listen to what he has to say and use his ideas. Some of the biggest names in Magic already do!" -Peter Samelson

"Stormin' Norman Beck is of my favorite people and magicians. He’ll make you laugh with his zany humor and that good-old-boy twang, and he’ll fool you with his diabolical thinking, methods, and routining." -Steve Forte

"My good friend Norman will make you laugh and fool you! Don't miss this!" - Bill Malone

"Thank goodness Norman Beck is on the side of the good guys. A lot of magicians like to think they have the skills to be a professional con man or psychic. Precious few actually do, but Norman is one of them. Behind that slow-talking, dull-witted Okie mask lies a clever-like-a-fox mind and one of the best friends a man could have. Whatever branch of his wide-ranging interests and expertise he cares to share -- close-up and card magic, cheating, how to win friends and influence people, and more -- I recommend you pay close attention. And try to stay on his good side." -Jamy Ian Swiss

"Norman Beck is one of magic's hidden gems. Until now, he has not been well known to most magicians (although that is in the process of changing). But, in underground" networks, he is both established and respected. His magic is charming, clever and commercial, and those qualities also define his lectures." -Max Maven

"Norman Beck is a deep thinker with an entertaining delivery. Those 'in the know' will need almost zero encouragement to attend, however you will want to make sure those unfamiliar with his reputation are well informed of his credentials and that which he has to offer. Magicians from all over the state drove hundreds of miles just to attend one of his first lectures - myself included. Not only will smart magicians learn a lot of great material, those of all levels of expertise will have an entertaining and elucidating experience" -Brad Henderson

Gold from a true gentleman Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 4th, 2014
This was a great lecture on a number of levels. Great material with much really useable real-world stuff. More than that, however was the wonderful love which Mr. Beck had for magic and his obvious care for his friends. His stories were worth the price of the lecture.
I have seen a lot of lectures on Penguin and this was truly one of my favorites. Worth many times what it cost.

Magic's Best Kept Secret Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 4th, 2014
I have gotten several online lectures, but this was by far my favorite. Mr. Beck displayed a sharp wit, a helpful and endearing personality, and some very unique methods. Norman had many great stories and had a joke for any topic brought to his attention! These are my highlights of this lecture: a card control invisible from all angles, one handed bottom deals, many anecdotes, and a lot of helpful advice. If your looking for practical advice and some eccentric new effects, then this is for you!

Hidden Treasure Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 4th, 2014
I had the pleasure of seeing this lecture in person, and although not much is known about Norman Beck he is for sure a gem of magic. There is a beautiful control (that at every single angle the camera could not even catch it) and force taught that you will certainly use. He's a very funny guy and some of his word play and patter is worth the price of the lecture alone. There are some very unique methods used I had never seen before and are super fooling. You will not be disappointed with this lecture!

Solid Real World material and insight Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 10th, 2015
Mr. Beck's lecture was full of valuable insight and material that has obviously been refined through both application in the real world and study of other methods.

The control that he teaches to get a card second to the top, as well as his routines for the card under the watch and the Card in Spectators pocket could have been put on a DVD and sold for the price of this lecture.

The real gold of the lecture was hearing his stories from his long career.

Brilliant Lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 25th, 2016
This is my kind of magic. Brilliant effects, funny lines, fooling routines and some really clever thinking. I love the two bridge effects and the 4 pile monte in particular, but there was so many gems in this lecture. The three money effects were genius and make me wish I lived in America so I could perform them. English money won't work with them but they were fun to watch and have got me thinking about different things I could use. Norman also shares one amazing control and two incredible forces I will use. This is my favourite Penguin Lecture so far. I learnt so much.
