The Essentials In Magic Series:

For Less than $10 bucks you get an incredible deal. This series of DVDs is one of the best "bangs for your buck" in magic today.

First of All, you get Daryl . . . one of the best teachers in magic. He's fun to watch and he makes learning whatever he teaches very easy.

Here's how I look at it . . . if it only cost me $10 bucks to learn how to perform CPR on a gnat and Daryl's teaching . . . I'm buyin'.

I have been doing sponge magic for a long time and I love it - it is one of my favorite genres of magic. I have researched, read and studied many, many books and techniques on the subject and I have seen quite a few DVDs covering sponge magic as well. This is certainly one of the best resources I have ever seen for beginning magicians that want to start learning how to do sponge magic. Once again, this DVD shows exactly why Daryl is one of the best and most sought-after teachers in magic today.

The production quality is absolutely phenomenal - it is well-lit, the audio and video are both crisp and clear and everything... [Read More]
