Ok...

you own the get nyman one so the international lecture might not be the best buy, I therefore suggested the bob cassidy mental miracles DVD because it has some very very good stuff on it!!!:-)

hope that helps

If I don't own get Nyman would the International lecture be worth it? Or should I still go with Bob Cassidy

Hi Celloboy,

Personally, I liked Mental Miracles more that Get Nyman. Bob Cassidy is one of the classics in mentalism.

But again, it depends on what your style is and what other DVDs, books you have.
I hope this does not defer from you original question!

Thanks A lot Phil, that's really helpfull. I jsut wanted something new and I'd known of the Nyman lecture video for a while and am travelling to london tomorrow so thought I could pop into international magic and get it if it was worth the money!

Thanks to everyone that offered a point of view. Much appreciated.

No problem.

I have Banachek. I have a rather wide collection of Mentailst stuff. I was just unsure about this video. I am not a beginner, I ahve been doing mentailsm for quite a while now.

I haven't seen this particular Nyman DVD but I have seen Get Nyman, and read plenty of reviews of it. Here are my thoughts:

I bought Get Nyman and watched the performance DVD with a friend who isn't into performing magic but appreciates watching it. She was pretty underwhelmed - although the 'dancing deal' to Kylie Minogue was absolutely hilarious and raised good laugh. A few of the tricks were impressive, most weren't. Some of the effects, my friend managed to guess the method. Most of the ticks are not breathe-taking.

However,

I really enjoyed watching the DVDs and I still do. I have watched Bannachek PSI series and Derren Brown's Devil's Picture Book, while I was impressed with the DPB, I can honestly say I enjoyed watching Nyman's DVDs, so in that sense, I think it was money worth spent. If the International Magic Andy Nyman Lectureis as entertaining then I will probably buy it.
