"One of our greatest living magical performers." -Derren Brown

What will he teach?



The legendary David Berglas shares with me, and you, a rich and compelling retrospective of his stellar career spanning well over half a century. He has literally appeared in every form of media known to mankind, and performed in every type of venue... including places you'd never expect. He takes us behind-the-scenes to reveal the immense amount of thought and effort that went into performing his very first publicity stunt. And, when you realize he conceived the solution to this incredible challenge without ever having performed anything before, you begin to appreciate the brilliance of this remarkable man. He then proceeds to show us some of his other big stunts, including revealing information by tracing it out with a motorcycle. That's pretty bad-ass!

David also talks about his early TV work, some of the famous people he's met and performed for, and his involvement with the Magic Circle. We also get a chance to chat with his son, Marvin, about what it was like to have a famous father and how it inspired him to start his own successful magic company. David then shares more great stories about celebrities and his involvement in motion pictures. Plus, we get a glimpse at the third generation of the Berglas magic dynasty.

You really owe it to yourself to listen to this fascinating man whose elegant complexity of methods baffled generations of audiences and magicians alike. Yes, you'll learn some secrets, big secrets... but, more importantly, you'll learn a new way to think about your effects, your career, and yourself.

If you want to learn about the commitment it takes to become a legend, and what it's like to live the life of an International Man of Mystery...you absolutely have to tune in here.

Who is he?



David Berglas is a psychological illusionist and mentalist. Known as the "International Man of Mystery", he is said to be one of the world's leading mentalists. The "Holy Grail" of Card Magic is known as "The Berglas Effect" which is also known as ACAAN (Any Card At Any Number).

Some of the celebrities he has entertained include Winston Churchill, Aristotle Onassis, Paul Getty, Lord Mountbatten of Burma, the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Michael Jackson, the Sultan of Brunei and most of the British Royal Family!

Along with being a creative consultant on films such as the 1967 version of Casino Royale, Tim Burton's Batman, George Lucas's Willow, he was one of the first magicians to appear on British television with his own show Meet David Berglas in 1954. Numerous other television series followed and were highly acclaimed in Holland, Sweden, Norway and Germany.

His many honors include residing as President of the International Brotherhood of Magicians (British Ring), 1976-1977, being President of The Magic Circle (1989-1998), in 1991 he became the subject of television's This Is Your Life, and the Magic Circle presented him with the coveted "Gold Medal" in the year 2000, which was only the sixth ever to be awarded since 1905.

If you could ask ONE question to one of the world's most creative professional magicians, what would it be?

Living legend indeed Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 11th, 2015
If you truly care about every aspect of magic and mentalism (there is no difference as far as Mr Berglas is concerned), history, method and presentation, then this is a must watch. Ignore what one obviously foolish young man said about him being old and outdated. If it wasn't for Berglas, mentalism wouldn't be what it is today, and there certainly wouldn't be performers such as Jermay and Brown pushing the limits of what's possible after such a high standard has been set, by this man alone. Penguin sell lots of quick brainless tricks for naïve young boys to show off to their friends with, that's fine. But for the discerning connoisseur, this is for you.

Very good!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 1st, 2016
Well... This is a pretty great interview!!! David talks about his life, how he got into magic and about how he became a great performer. I would call this less of a lecture but more of an interview. For you secret hunters, you will learn the secrets and communication behind magics most puzzling mysteries, but overall, this is a great interview with a great mentalist. BTW- the berglas effect is not explained

Charming interview Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 2nd, 2015
Berglas definitely delivers more than the other big names penguin has featured recently. He reveals methods to some of his most puzzling mysteries. He won't tell you how the table trick is done cause why spoil all the magic. Very moving and inspirational. However I wish I hadn't waisted money on it cause now I need to buy his books.

Not Bad Report this review

Here in the states, David wasn't as viewable so I don't know so much about him. There were some good techniques discussed. More so than many other recent lectures.

the Worlds Most Amazing Man! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 22nd, 2015
David Breglas is “the Worlds Most Amazing Man!.” His contribution to the art is beyond the comprehension of the masses. Berglas’s showmanship, charm, charisma and highly nuanced understanding of the human mind is a study unto itself. Thanks David, for always saying Yes!
