Can anyone tell me their feelings on Dominique's Book "Magie Duviver" ? Also how do you feel on the Cheetah's Handbook for those who own it? I am interested in purchasing both. I am very into Dominique's video's and magic of the likes of John Bannon, Hamman, and Kenner. I like the "new" thinking styles of magic if you will. So can anyone tell me their opinions on those items? Thank you!

"New" thinking? Not sure what you mean by that. All the folks you list have been around for many many years...

I strongly recommend you use the "search" function of this forum.

Cheetah's handbook is very good. I really enjoyed reading it and will use three or four of the routines from it

The Duvivier book, in my opinion, was one of the worst purchases I have ever made. Out of over 20-odd tricks, only about THREE of them used things that are normally found in a magician's case. Everything else was gaffed and required a LOT of work to make. It was, in my opinion, nothing more than a dealer's catalogue with the directions included as I doubt many of us could make many of the items in that book ourselves.

Your mileage may vary, but I felt that I had been thoroughly ripped off when I finally read it.

Thanks for the info Lee, that seemed to be the general consensus. His magic does seem to be a bit "gaffy" if you will. Although, the gaffs seem to be worth it as shown in his videos and in printing...
