Hey Syd, just got done checking out the online vid and that is a cool effect!

As for Joggin's concern about availabilty I have to disagree. I just read through the "purchase" page and I understood that only "500 would be signed and numbered by you and JC". The fact that 1000 will be sold in the long run really doesn't bother me either. I happen to own a few other books that have probably gone to thousands (and possibly thousands Smile ) of magicians worldwide including "Expert Card Technique", "Classic Magic, and JC's other fantastic book "Commercial Magic". I would never "reconsider" getting those books no matter how many copies of them were printed.

Keep up the great work.

It was a nice thought to limit such a fine booklet. I am just discouraged in knowing that twice as many people will have it as well.

Recieved the booklet the ther day, and I must say, Syd and JC both have amazingly good effects.
I immediately found a few effects that I fell in love with, if anyone cares, those effects are "Thank you Le Paul", "Even more four on the floor" and "A logical lesson" (A logical lesson can, as already mentioned be seen at http://www.meandjc.com)

I strongly recommend getting this, before it's too late, the guys are awesome!

Also, the illustrations in the booklet are very nice, done by rfa productions, that also illustrates for Channel One.

Brilliant booklet, it will get a nice place in my bookcase.

PS. The interviews with JC are gold!

Syds effects are great, nice to see these younger guys collaborating with us older generation. Show's there appreciation for some of the old material. We need more collaborations like this!. Thanks J.C. and Syd.

Thank you Larry and DeFlare....

JC appearing at LVMI next year is gonna be great. We are thinking about putting together another booklet for release at next years event.

Anyone going to Magic In The Rockies in Sept.? JC will be lecturing and performing behind the bar all weekend. Anyone in or around Colorado should attend. Other names coming include Eric Mead, Doc Eason, Bob Sheets, and Nathan Kranzo. Should be awesome.

One last thing, I have recently added a mailing list to the website. Anyone interested in hearing more about the magic of JC and myself should add themselves to the mailing list.

Thank You,
Syd Segal

Hey Xander, just noticed your reply here...

The 2nd book got started, then got put on hold. Unfortunately, I have a normal day to day job that keeps me busy for quite a bit of time. In May, I plan on going to Japan for a couple of weeks, and taking about a month off from work. Hopefully then I will be able to put some work back in to another booklet from JC and I.

On a side note, JC shot a DVD last year at the Magic Castle. Due to some difficulties and oversight of the producers, the footage had to be scrapped. This Wednesday, JC will be in Las Vegas lecturing at Boomer's and while he is there, he will be re-shooting the DVD! This DVD will be titled "Seven More Secrets" and will contain all new material from JC's working card set. Trust me, the material here is awesome. A lot of thinking, fine tuning, and testing went in to these methods and I know this DVD will not dissappoint.

Keep an eye out around the end of this month, early April for its release on http://www.jcwagnersmagic.com

Best,
S.Segal

Love the effects, but not too keen on the writing style. I think some of it was supossed to be funny, but I didn't really get it.

I recommend the book though.

I got my book in the mail last week. Great service, and a great looking booklet! I haven't had time yet to go through it in depth yet, but at first blush it looks wonderful. I'll try to post a review here down the road a bit.
