Key points: Being able to secretly control a spectator's chosen card to any position of the pack is an essential skill for EVERY card magician.
How are the production values: Big Blind Media is wonderful, great shots, well edited and laid out with navigatable menus.
Is it well taught: This is my third BBM with Liam as the teacher, I would highly recommend these DVDs for anyone who wants to further their skill in card magic
My thoughts (what I personally liked/disliked): I liked that this isn't "JUST" sleights, but you will learn some magic tricks on here as well. I also liked that this is comprehensive enough that even skilled magicians can come back to this again and again for a refresher.
Overall score: 9/10
