Alex Elmsley is best known for his namesake false count, the Elmsley Count. This DVD series is Mr. Elmsley teaches his best known tricks intermingled with interview segments where he talks about things such as the origins of the Elmsley Count, or what he originally called the Ghost Count.

The tricks are quite good. He starts with the trick that "started it all," the Four Card Trick. There are so many variations of the Elmsley Count that it is nice to see how the inventor teaches it. It's not the finger tip method but a left to right hand count - a bit different that the left hand dealers grip method that seems to be the most popular today.

Twisters Flush is a nice impromptu packet tricks. I really like Dazzle, it is a hilarious effect but you need to find several different backed decks to construct the gaffs.

Overall, this is a great DVD and you'll learn a lot of useful packet moves and false counts such as his Everchange Count. It is produced well and includes "super practice sessions." If you've never seen this format before, the magician review key sleights at a slower tempo. The degree of difficulty is pretty easy once you master the false counts. Highly recommended.
