"Tyler Wilson is quite inconsistent: One moment he makes you cry with laughter and the next he fools your socks off! His problem, really, is one of talent: Way too much of everything!" - Pit Hartling
"Devious thinking is the way I like to describe Tyler's material. You will learn and be inspired by this crazy mother*ucker." - Helder Guimarães
"Tyler Wilson is too wise for his years, and too skilled, and too funny. He makes me nervous, but you should see him anyway." - Stephen Minch
"Fortunately, after Tyler Wilson turns your brain inside out, he doesn't tear it in half as most magicians do with Card Warp. (He just leaves it before you, dangling from your spinal cord as you try to reconcile the miracles you've witnessed.) You're in for a real treat - don't miss him!" - Jack Carpenter
"Reinventing The Real is the best and most exciting book on close-up magic I've read in a long time. In it, Tyler Wilson shows himself wonderfully inventive, a serious student of his craft and very funny. The only fault this book has is that I'm not publishing it.” - Stephen Minch
“There are very few magic books that make me laugh on purpose. This one did. I have not met Mr. Wilson, but it is clear that he is impressively well read, and threateningly clever. Had I not read it first, this material would have fooled me. Thus, I’d probably find it difficult to like him." - Max Maven
"Wow! Reinventing The Real has so much variety it could have been called Kamasutricks. The book is an inspiring read. It's full of unique presentations, methods, and strong effects. Make room on your bookshelf and get ready to add to your repertoire." - Ray Kosby
“Reinventing The Real is a well-written and well-produced book with great magic, solid methods, terrific presentations and spot on references and credits.” - Jason England
What will he teach?
B52 Shooter Imagine a deck unequivocally shuffled face up into face down, and then magically separated so explosively that the cards look like they're doing parkour. With a new presentation, new method, and new climax, it's almost unfair to call this a Triumph. So we won't.
Stick it to the Man Imagine a spectator frantically sticking Post-it Notes all over the magician's body. While seeming purely random and in complete control of the spectator, a prediction is revealed to perfectly match her choices and movements. This is a fooling and highly memorable routine which proves that mentalism doesn't have to be boring.
Occam's Edge Keep imagining, but this time imagine that you could slowly vanish a card using no gimmicks and no sleight of hand. In fact, you use literally nothing. This is a new concept that is fantastically versatile, with applications ranging from vanishes to appearances to transportations to transpositions, and many others.
Shortser Cut Imagine even harder that with a stack of coins in front of you, you could reach down and instantly snatch any amount that the spectator calls for. Doing it once would be cool, but this is a three-phase powerhouse that gets more and more impressive each step of the way.
Coke Inhabit Imagine way, way harder that you flipped the classic Coin-in-Bottle trick on its head. This is an entirely new concept for the trick that lets you give the bottle away as a souvenir, with the coin still inside. No folding coins, no gimmicks, no kidding. There's a feature about this routine that we're holding back — we don't want to ruin the surprise!
Inspected Gadget Imagine as crazy hard as you possibly can that you held the cleanest Card-to-Envelope in your hands. This is the innovative new principle that all the big named magicians are raving about. It's clean, easy, practical, and deeply fooling. The best part is that it's not limited to just cards and envelopes: this principle is as versatile and customizable that you want to make it.
All this, plus over two dozen more highly original tricks and techniques from one of magic's most passionate and captivating performers.

Tyler came to our Penguin studios with a single purpose: to destroy every lecture record we have. And he succeeded. Clocking in at nearly six hours, never have we packed so much fresh, innovative magic into one event. It's like you're getting two full lectures (just don't tell our pricing guy that!). Permeating through every minute, you'll experience Tyler's unique blend of funny and painfully unfunny, and you often won't know which is which.
You know Tyler from his highly acclaimed, and best-selling books, Dominatricks and Reinventing the Real. Here's your chance to see his material jump off the page and into your brain. Illiterates rejoice! But routines from his books are only the beginning. From there, you're treated to old killers that he's held back from publishing for years, and new killers that he totally wanted to hold back but needed the money.
Come see this creative powerhouse at work, at play, and at his best. Here's your chance to experience this one-of-a-kind, record-breaking lecture. We can't wait for him to break us again.

I have purchased many live lectures from Penguin for quite some time now, and this was one of my favorites. The first trick Tyler demonstrates is a transposition that I already love (also the namesake of the title of the review, trust me on this). I couldn't watch the whole thing in one sitting since it was so long and full of so much material, but I have watched about 3/4's of it and all of it has been incredible. Highly recommended!6 of 6 magicians found this helpful.
One of the best lectures I've ever seen Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 5th, 2016
I rarely review magic products, but this lecture was absolutely fantastic. I wasn't planning on buying this until Andy from the Jerx blog said it would be worth it, and I'm glad that I did. As he pointed out, Tyler isn't one of those guys who's constantly rehashing tricks on DVDs and in downloads, so this was my first chance to see him perform on video.3 of 3 magicians found this helpful.
Tyler is a true expert in magic. He has some fantastic handlings of the classics, original presentations, he teaches some cool and uncommon moves, he has an enormous historical knowledge, and his theory is smart but not preachy. Best of all, you get to see a lot of the material performed for a live audience of non-magicians.
I honestly don't understand why anyone would give this lecture less than five stars. It's six hours of fantastic material from a really talented and funny guy.
Great Magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 27th, 2016
This was a lecture with some really, really good magic. The jokes may not be for everyone, but we all need to lighten up a little. Tyler is a great teacher, a great thinker, and cares a lot about credits. The scholarship of caring about the work that has gone before, and crediting those workers, is missing in a great deal of magic. Tyler cares and it shows very clearly that he is not just a great teacher but a great scholar.3 of 3 magicians found this helpful.
Well worth te price, but know that there is some adult content. But the adult content is funny so it's OK.

Great Sense of humor. Funny stuff. Tyler finds the easiest way to create a great effect. Lots of unique and inventive ideas. Not overburdened with slights and card effects.2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
Great lecture, bruh! Report this review

This is one of the finest Penguin lectures I've ever watched. Full of great, well thought of magic (and much, much more). I can't believe there will be someone who won't start performing at least one of the tricks from the lecture.2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
Not enough non-card tricks? Tyler did six non-card tricks. This is the most action-packed lecture on the site. It was like The Expendables meets Human Centipede meets Fuller House!
Fantastic lecture from a great thinker! Report this review

The magic is amazing and so well nuanced.
I absolutely recommend this lecture.
Clever, funny, creative, important magician Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 1st, 2016
One of the best lectures I've seen in a long time. The material is diverse and of a very high calibre.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
Lots of refreshing, exciting effects that also give plenty of scope for the performer to show their personality.
B52 Shooter is probably the most talked about effect and it's terrific, one of my new favourite tricks to practise and perform.
Tyler's handling of Professor's Nightmare is brilliant, allowing you to show the individual pieces of rope visibly stretching and shrinking.
A nice prediction routine, lots of strong card tricks and moves, all reflecting Tyler's different and exciting way of approaching magic.
He's clever, funny and clearly a keen student of magic as he credits his sources throughout, sometimes naming magic books going back to the 1700s.
Lots of fun and very useful and educational. Highly recommended.

Wow, that's all you can say after watching the lecture, whether its's due to all the amazing magic you've just learnt, how Tyler's mind works (and remembers) or just because you've spent 6 hours watching a man slowly undress!1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
Seeing the effects performed infront of an audience was helpful in understanding how they should play in the real world.
I only wished the lecture was cut into one big file to better understand the flow of things, without too many cuts but can understand why they did it. Also providing the performance in one show would be helpful too, just to see how the flow of a show goes.
It's impossible not to find something in this lecture that you'll want to do, whether it's Inspected Gadget, Tyler's take on card warp or any of the dozen card tricks this lecture is definitely worth the time and money.
Couldn't watch to the end Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 20th, 2016
This lecture started off with promise (Oxford English Dictionary page 815, 1st column) and soon due to his (pronoun, male, Oxford Style Manual)constant (Webster's dictionary, page 49, 2nd column) referencing, I started to find myself getting more and more (Oxford Dictionary, page 660, 2nd column) irritated (Webster's Dictionary page 127, 1st column). By the time we got to riffle shuffles (Tarbell Volume 1, page 270) I could take no more (57 minutes in, Kyle's patience, snapped).1 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
Thing is, the references were done so fast they were of little use other than to distract and show off, so all in all it just became an annoying waste of time. I finally just gave up and resigned myself to the fact this one wasn't for me. If reading the paragraph above wasn't annoying, then maybe you'd like it.

Pros:0 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
This lecture contained some smart thinking and interesting variations on effects. Tyler clearly cares about magic and his methods are well thought out.
His performance style isn't my favorite (to watch) as it becomes a bit much after a while.
Also, while I absolutely appreciate proper crediting, his fast rattling off of credits (for sleights such as the double turnover, for example) and giving page numbers was over the top.
The sources he listed were (to my knowledge) the first published examples of the sleights, not necessarily the sources with the best written descriptions. So it felt like he was trying to show off his skills of memorization of source pages more than trying to direct viewers to learning the sleights. I found this part to be very annoying.
