With endoresements from David Copperfield, Derren Brown and Cyril, I doubt these DVDs will receive any bad reviews!

I don’t know quite where to start…

First, the production is like nothing the magic world has ever seen. The effects are outstanding as are the explanations. EVERY detail is discussed in depth. You get four DVD’s with PROFESSIONAL effects and routines. The magic world has never had anything like this before. If you are interested in something to headline in your act or publicity stunts for television / local or national news then this is the ultimate instructional set. The price could have been $1,000.00 and still have been considered money well spent.
Outstanding in EVERY WAY! I have viewed thousands magic DVDs, this goes to the top.

Bill Abbott is selling “CHICO” for $550.00. This product is 15 minutes of solid entertainment and WELL worth the price!

Now take into fact that you are receiving the following and who the teacher is:

Disc 1 - Firewalking
Blowtorch
Directory

Disc 2 - Stone Breaking
Arrow Snapping
Bottle Break 1

Disc 3 - Frozen Alive
Strait Jacket
Apple Tear

Disc 4 - Walking on Glass
Bar Bending
Bottle Break 2

$190.00 is a steal!!!
To anyone wanting to publicize their show or have a “headliner” for their act, this material IS worth $1,000.00. I have seen a lot less go for a lot more.
I guess it all depends on where you are in your career.

You did not see the smiley in my respond? Plus after that I asked seriously. It doesn't matter how much cost or they sell always the buyer decide want to buy it or not.

I don't quite understand. Most of this stuff is readily available out there. Nothing the magic world has ever seen?

Sorry if I seem cynical. I don't doubt the info is good and the production quality (I could care less about the sizzle in that regard).

I initially was intrigued by this til I saw that almost everything (except frozen alive) is something I know and is readily available through any debunking manual.

Still just for the frozen alive I might get it. :)

Well I fyou are just looking to know the secret behind it then, yes the info is readily available. But if you are looking to perform or already performing the material then there is always something to learn when it comes to stunts. Someone could provide a subtle nuance that you had never thought of that adds to the performance.

Keep in mind though, this material is always without question best learned, in person from a qualified instructor. But as trained performer I must admit that I see this as a wonderful piece of reference material.
