The 4 DVD set might seem expensive at first glance, however; it is packed full of useful and fun magic. The DVD set is produced by Luis de Matos and is a first class product. Easy navigation and fun to watch with many different angle and perspective shots make this set a joy to watch.

Woody is fun. You will become infected with his enthusiasm and impish personality. Woody talks a lot on this DVD and although his English is very good, his accent is thick. Not to worry though, as the DVDs are subtitled so, if you miss a bit of what he said, you can read it at the bottom of the screen. Woody spends a great deal of time talking about his philosophy, performing concepts, and subtleties throughout the four DVDs.

It would be difficult to believe that you won't find something on these DVDs that you will want to perform. This is a 4 DVD set of card tricks . . . and if you are thinking, "I've seen enough card tricks!", I can't blame you. But, I would encourage you to watch these DVDs. Woody has found new ground of performing with cards. His presentations and methods make these card tricks very, very fun.

As of this writing, I have three different friends that have this set and each one of them are working on a different trick in the set to include in their performance repertoire.

A particular point I enjoyed with the DVD set is that you get to watch him perform a formal show at the Lagrimas Hotel in Coimbra. Very few DVD's allow you to see a full live performance with real spectators. This alone is a real gem in the DVD set.

Read the advertising and see if there is not something that will pique your interest as I could write a great deal about each and every trick on the DVD. If I did that the review would take longer to read then watching the DVD set. So just go give Woody your money and enjoy some very fine card magic.
