Man! I'm exhausted . . . for $20 bucks you sure get a heck of a lot of stuff.
This DVD covers every conceivable scenario, situations, event, happening, venue, topic, angle and thought regarding marked decks, particularly the Speed Reader Deck. I've personally used the Speed Reader Deck (which does not come with this DVD), and I love it. It's very easy to use, and it has a lot of advantages over other marked cards.
So I'll first say that if you don't use marked cards, after watching this DVD, you'll change your mind. Thomas pointed out so many situations where a marked card just gives you that little extra edge that can really push you magic into a completely different realm. You end up being able to take advantage of "happy little accidents" (thank you Bob Ross . . . God rest his soul). These accidents, mind you, are ones you are oblivious to if you don't use marked cards.
We were shown 6 different performances of Thomas just sort of "playin' around" with some spectators, and in almost every case, had a happy little accident that move the magic into the miracle category. There are so many things that I would guess you never thought of when it comes to marked cards.
So if you don't use marked cards, you should (and you will after watching this DVD). But what about you folks who already use marked cards or have your own preferred marking system, etc.? That's fine. You should still watch this DVD. Much of the material applies to marked cards in general. I'd say that maybe 25% of it requires the Speed Reader Deck. However, you may even reconsider the system you're using once you see the Speed Reader Deck in action.
Though the teaching is a little dry in quite a few spots, the bottom line is this: if you do card effects of any kind, you should own this DVD.
