"You can look at a book. You can read it. You can hope to understand what the principles are... but, to not see the creator perform it, there is something missing, until you have the opportunity to see the master perform. And then, you say to yourself 'Oh'! I understand something now,' something that you can't interpret or get from a book."
- Jim Cellini -

"What I adored about Slydini was not his ability to deceive people, but rather the magical feeling that he generated in people."
- Bill Brunelle -

"The Slydini magic, I loved. The Slydini philosophy - I thought was in a class by itself. That's where I got a special thrill!"
- Bob Yorburg -

My problem isn't Slydini. My problem is his students. Slydini was great because what he did matched his personality. To learn from Slydini, you learned to imitate him. That was his teaching style. The problem is that what works for a distinguished Italian gentleman born in 1900 isn't going to work for most people watching this DVD.

Well, dear readers, I fear I was an idiot. Once again I let my preconceptions get in my way. These DVDs belong on the shelf of every magician who's serious about producing a truly magical experience.
