Let's just start by saying that everyone should own the book "Royal Road to Card Magic". If you don't, use the search box above and go to that page and order it. This DVD is a great companion set to the book. I would read the book as I went to sleep, carefully inspecting diagrams and re-reading paragraphs until it made sense. The logical evolution are these DVDs. As brilliant as the book is (and it is really great) this DVD set takes abstract concepts and shows them to you. It wasn't until I watched this set that I realised I was doing a few key moves wrong. The content is absolutely solid and it follows the book perfectly. If you are a beginner magician I would still recommend picking up Born to Perform Card Magic first - simply for the fact that it gets you performing tricks more quickly - but once you are ready for some more in-depth study, the book and this DVD set combined make a great resource. It takes discipline to keep to it because R. Paul Wilson is quite dry in his delivery but the results far out-weigh a few moments of boredom. Definitely buy now.

Nice review. Thanks. But to me, Paul wasn't being boring, he was, in my opinion, trying to stick to the task at hand, that of teaching & not showing off, & also, by him staying in a straightforward mode as he does, it makes it less likely that others will try & copy his manner, & will, as they should, adapt the material to their OWN personality, rather than being another dvd clone magician, which there are FAR too many of in my opinion. {JMHO} :)
