This was a pretty good lecture but there was something about it that just seemed to make it lag. The information was still good, but I was not incredibly entertained by this lecture.

There was some very good ideas presented on here and Chris does a very good job of teaching things. You will find mostly coin magic on here and few other effects with sundry items.

For me, the highlight of sorts of this particular lecture was the thoughts and ideas that Chris had for the David Roth 'Coin Flurry'. Personally I have never been a fan of the 'Coin Flurry' and in fact, one might say I just hate it for a number of reasons. Chris is probably the first or second person I have ever seen that actually give a genuine motivation to/reason for the 'Coin Flurry'. He tells a story and it is one that most people born before the year 2000 can connect with. Just great thinking here.

Because I occasionally use the set myself, I also enjoyed his idea for the 'Triple Threat' coin (a.k.a. the Triple Nesting Coin). More than anything, it is not something you see a lot of performers using, let alone explaining an effect to use it for. In this case it is a very clean (read: clean-looking) version of the 'Coins Across' plot, but it will not be for everyone.

There are a few clips of Chris performing some of the effects for a real spectator/participant in a live setting, which are shown throughout the lecture to illustrate certain points that Chris makes throughout. I believe it was Gregory Wilson that first did this for the At the Table lectures and it is a very good idea - they can not only illustrate certain points but also, critique their own performances and say what they could/should have done differently at various points.

Chris also talks at length about his creative process and doing work for television and creating acts for competitions - at least his experiences with doing so.

If you like coins, this will be a good lecture for you to get a few fresh ideas from. If you are not a coin person, I would suggest looking into getting a different lecture from this one.
