A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Real Magic at your Fingertips

Jeff McBride, renowned performer and one of the finest card manipulators of our time, teaches you the inside secrets of professional card manipulation. Routines, sleights, productions and flourishes are clearly taught and demonstrated, along with sample routines and the seasoned advice that only a working professional can provide. Many of these sleights and techniques have been closely guarded for years - never published, but only passed on from one professional to another. These can only be found exclusively on this set of studio - quality DVDs. Jeff leads you through each and every item, while giving you the little tips that make learning easier and performing more entertaining.

Never has video instruction been more valuable. You see how the sleights should look, precisely how they are timed and how they are performed in the real world. Now with the help of Jeff McBride, you can learn the baffling and sophisticated card manipulations you have always dreamed of performing!

I heard great reviews of this tape, and don't know why people would say the stuff they did.... maybe i'm not advanced enough, but i think that the first video at least sucks. Overall there is about 20 minutes of teaching... ...there is about 15 minutes of him talking about what he likes in magic... ...20 minutes of the cameras just going back over the tricks and showing them at different angles but not saying anything, and about ten minutes of him showing the tricks at a favorable angle to a few fake audience members... ...the teaching goes like this..... "I hold the cards like this (then the camera zooms on his fingers for about a second), and then I do this", and then he does the move. And then he says the same thing all over again. This is about the extent of the movie. Everything in this video involves palming cards, which he conveniently does not teach... overall, if I could return it, I would. I thought this was crap. I could have just downloaded a movie of someone doing the moves in a mirror and picked up the same amount of knowledge.

This was the first video set I ever bought; back when they were vhs. Jeff McBride is an excellent instructor. The material progresses from easy to very difficult, but if you move through everything step by step you will be able to grasp everything taught. Card Manipulation is extremely difficult to learn even with video, so do yourself a favor and buy the best resource on the subject

Jeff McBride is an AMAZING card manipulator who has more talent than most anyone will EVER have in the field.

Because of that, this set is the ULTIMATE set you can buy if you hope to learn card manipulation. He goes over EVERYTHING in detail in high quality, easy to understand video. If anyone is qualified to teach this stuff, Jeff McBride is. He also teaches you the tips and subtleties that he has learned over YEARS of proffesional performances.

Highly recommended!

I'll tell ya, I've seen alot of different tutorial's and instructional videos on how to do this or that, but this one by FAR is the best I've ever encountered. Jeff explains everything and shows you step by step how he does what he does. Each DVD is broken down into smaller segments (I guess you could call them mini-routines) and at the end of each one, all the moves are repeated twice, with a closeup of his hands and in slow motion. The only way you would not like these DVD's is if you had no desire to practice. Alot of these moves defiantely require practice, but that's what magic is all about. If there was one DVD set I could recommend, it would be this one.

I just want to say that Penguin has lived by their name. If you want to advance your sleight of hand magic, just go for this dvd. I was completely satisfied and I am sure everyone who purchases it will be also. Great stuff.

It can't get any better then this. Jeff McBride is without doubt one of the best cardmanipulators in the world. On this DVD he share some great card productions and flourishes. You will also learn a few full card manipulation-routines and tips on how to make your own. His teaching methods are just great, everything is explained VERY well.

The guy with the bad review must be commenting the wrong DVD. These three DVDs are the best I own (and I have a few). What he must not have realized is that these moves taught on the DVD won't take you ten minutes to master. No, it will take you months of practice (if you're new to magic) to get these moves down. I sat down one day and spent ten houres on just one production. So, if you're looking for magic that will take you ten minutes to learn, this is not for you. But, if you're looking for a challenge and being able to perform the most beautiful magic there is, this one is for you.

One of the best DVD I have Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 5th, 2004
Jeff McBride's the art of card manipulation DVDs are some of the best DVDs that I own. He teaches things very clearly for the most part, meaning that everyone's hand is differnt so what may work for one person wouldn't work as well for another. So, you may have to slightly modify how the card is plamed in your hand when you do the manipulation. He also dosen't teach you the basics in palm a card, but you can figure it out with out to much of a problem just by looking at his hand. Jeff will show you a sample routine however, he shows you the manipulations and then you have to come up with your own routine. I use these manipulations almost every time I perform a trick. whether it is doing a lepaul spread, a thumb fan, one handed fan, circular fan for a person to select a card. again I highly recommend theses DVDs. They will take practice to master, but it is some of the funnest magic that I know.

I have no idea about the guy with the bad review but these 3 DVDs are AWESOME and do NOT suck. If you want to be able to manipulate cards by making them appear, vanish, and reappear, and learn some excellent flourishes (Rolo Deck, Waterfall Shuffle, One-Handed Shuffle, Charlier Cut--or one-handed cut, LePaul Spread, etc.) then get this DVD NOW!! Don't even think about it. Save up your money and get it! He does go over the teachings real well and the "Talking" that he does are tips and ideas. It has this awesome Super Practice mode that teaches you every single trick and flourish in slow-mo in a very up-close and great angle-to-see teaching. This is very professional magic. Almost all these tricks were the hardest tricks I've ever learned how to do. Some tricks require little practice while others require a very extensive amount of practice, but that's the beauty... if you can do it (with all the practice) you know someone else (without practice) CAN'T do it.

Manipulation routine shows the artistic side of every magician. This DVD will give you all the tools you need to construct your card manipulation routine. All you need to create a powerful routine is right in this series of intructional videos. All you need to provide is the time to practice, and a creative mind to put the pieces together and you will have an act that will make people say "NOW THAT'S A MAGICIAN!!!"
