I'm very lucky because, just like a lot of you out in magic land, I come across David Roth
references all the time in books, DVDs and all sort of magic literature. In my case, however I get
to go hang out with him in Manhattan every Sunday and Monday when he's working at Fantasma. I was
thrilled to take the seminar live online. David is a true grandmaster of coin magic (and a very
humble one at that) and I love to hang out with him and absorb his conjuring ways. David has been
stearing me in the right direction since I met him. In this lecture he's teaching the very stuff he
took on Letterman. Strong magic and beautiful routines at that. Coins across a la Roth is going
straight into my own routine. (after I ask David a slew of questions when I see him.) Thanks David
and Penguin! Well worth the mere $20 you charged. Have him on again soon!

I downloaded and have just fininished watching all 2 plus hours of what I consider to be some of the
finest teaching and performances of doable coin magic.This is not knuckle busting stuff and Mr Roth
shows us his classic signature routines in a relaxed expert manner.Yes like all good magic practice
will be required to get the routines upto scratch , this is not self working gear.
you are a beginner or experienced performer this is superb value in this day of the $30 one trick

Excellent Lecture...I like his approach to magic, and his attention to the smaller details. The
hardest part about magic sometimes is knowing that what you are doing is actually convincing. He
gives tips, and does his best to alleviate mistakes and tells when performing the various slights
that he teaches. Easily worth the money!!

I bought this for the coin box work, but everything is top notch. There are several items I had not
seen published before as well as some of the classic work. I don't have any of the Roth DVDs so
can't comment on any over lap of material, but the coin box work alone was well worth the price.
He is the master and mentor in coin magic to me and so many others ,if possible, I would love
another live program with David can't get enough.Thanks
Excellent lecture. he's a genius. u will love this one if you like coins for all venues, and the
boxes a must his are the best get them with the transcript it help me a lot
If you love coin magic some of the tricks will definitely go to your repertoire.Surely it was a
lecture much more worth than the meager amount Penguin Magic is charging for.
If you love coin
magic and would like to learn some really cool practical things go for it.
He even goes over
subtleties over palming and retention of vision vanish.
I own several Roth DVD's and lectures, and this is, hands-down, his comprehensive lecture. David
covers topics of both high importance and interest to coin magicians, such as palming, the retention
pass (and the theory behind vanishes), as well as a multiple-routine lesson in Coins Across. David
emphasizes magic, bestowing wonder on spectators, rather than complicated technique and
This is not an introduction to coin magic. He teaches the moves
well, but not as detailed as the step-by-step instruction on his DVD's. However, if you've watched
the first 2 Expert Coin Magic Made Easy DVD's, you'll be astounded with this lecture and be ready to
perform (to quote David): "some coin magic that looks like real magic".
I have been in the magic business for 47 years now and have seen the industry go from just books to
a world of training material. I first began to rent video tapes from Videonics back in the late
70's or early 80's. The computer age has really made the ability to acquire quality instruction so
my beef is somewhat minor but legitimate. I could never understand why a lecture or a video tape
would be sold without the ability to obtain the props. David Roth is one of the most amazing coin
workers ever seen. His coin box routine equal Michael Ammar's Cups and Balls. It is a work of art
and he goes over the entire routine. The only problem is if you are needing a slot box okito coin
box that he uses you will have to hunt for it. Other wise the David Roth Live was well worth the
money. I did find a couple of people that would make you a slot box but be ready to pay.
