"Michael O'Brien has proven himself to be a master of the rings and I cannot think of a better
teacher than him. His performance is a work of art. So sit back, relax and watch an expert
perform some of the best routines you are ever likely to see." -Matthew Garrett (UK | 2010 Magic Circle Closeup Magician of the Year | Creator of NINJA+)

"This is the best version of the Chinese Linking Rings I have ever seen. The fact that I get to
touch and participate in all of this; it felt like a better dance than I have ever seen. That was just
a delight." -Brian Brushwood, (USA | Scam School)

"Triumph is a very powerful plot in magic. 'Tour de Force' is a beautiful, simple handling of that
effect." -Jonathan Bayme (USA | Theory 11 CEO)

consummate professional through and through. His Pokemon card trick has been a part of my
family strolling set for over a year!" -Cody Fisher, USA

learning and adding to your repertoire. This is very highly recommended." -Paul Romhany (USA | Vanish Magazine)

The title pretty much says it all. If you're looking for stuff that works in the "real world". Look no further. Michael is an amazing performer with years of real world, expert experience. I've personally witnessed these routines SLAY audiences all over the place. There is 1 routine that is worth the price of this entire lecture, and that is....Im lying. There is a lot more than just 1! His chop cup routine, Card to pocket, Pocket card at any number, Linking rings, and SO MUCH MORE. Michael's insights and tips alone are worth the price of the lecture!

Do yourself a favor and pick this up. You wont be disappointed. It has something for everyone! It doesn't even matter what skill level you are, you'll learn some valuable things in here!

Learn these routines, and you'll be well on your way to having enough material to entertain audiences all over the world, and earn a living from it. Just like Michael!

Stop thinking. Pick it up now! You can thank me later!

Real World Worker Material Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 29th, 2019
I first leaned of Michael O'Brien a few years back as he began posting several of his routines. I received his first book and gleaned so much material from it. This presents a very unique niche in magic. Michael has stuff that you have to practice and work on, especially timing, but it's not in the "impossible to do" realm. Instead, it professional material that is for use in the Real World. It's fooling, entertaining and clever!

Keep an eye on this young man... he's going places quick!

I've been a fan of Michael O'Brien's as he has released more and more great close-up over the years. His deck switching device is the deck switch I use most often. So it was great to see his complete act in one place with all the info and tips. An in the audience member's hand chop cup is a highlight as well as a card to pocket brilliantly dressed up as a mega fun Pokemon routine. A true gent and professional at work here.
