His 2 ahead coin routine is great. The origami bunny is probably the best item on the video, but of course, he doesn't show us how to make it. You have to buy a $40 origami book to learn it. Probably some sort of copyright issue. Smile

The bunny fold is shown in Workers #1 (the book) - so you don't need to buy a $40 origami book, and you get some other excellent routines as well!!

All 5 of the Workers books are brilliant. A mainstay of my stand up act is Michael's presentation of 'Lucky Lady' - which appears in Workers #3

Buy them all, now, - you won't regret it!!

I have Michael doing the Card, Forehead and Saltshaker, on both his Power of Palming Video, as well as his Very Close Series from L & L. He seems to get a better reaction with the live audience in the L & L video. The routine kills though.

Pothole has garnered some repeat buisness. I also enjoyed incorporating Erma la Fource, Butte Ox 2 Butte Ox, The Lie Detector and his Close's Clones into my act.

The 5 volume book series is probably one of the best investments you can make. Not just from a stand point on how to learn some killer tricks, but on how to shape your act and to think about the theory behind magic.

We haven't heard from the thread originator - CopterChris - Have you bought any of these volumes? - If so, what do you think?

I just purchased workers #1 and will report later....thanks for recommendations on the rest of the series. Anyone able to compare to his video series? He's selling the set of 3 for $45 at his website.

I think Stupid Travelers is killer.
