I have purchased this DVD, and other beginner DVDs (Ammar, Kaufmann, etc.). I feel that the Ellusionist video is better than any other DVD I have purchased for people trying to get started in sleight of hand card magic. If you are an absolute beginner and want to learn sleight of hand card magic, then "Crash Course 1" is the best DVD I have seen on this subject. As far as the "Ninja 1" video, I do not like the fact that the pass is revealed in the plot, so I would change the nature of the plot to not reveal it. Regarding Brad Christian's pass mechanics, I think that his pass is as good as any other pass I have seen. I own Ninja 1 (and 2) as well as Kaufmann's "On the Pass", and Cassford's "Pass with Care". Although Ninja 1 does not teach the pass as well as Pass with Care, that does not mean the Brad Christian has a bad pass as Mr. Swiss implied. BTW - I am 43 years old, not one of the kiddies that Mr. Swiss refers to. I do have a personality, unlike Mr. Swiss's stereotype descriptions. I wouldn't take a bullet for Brad Christian, but I would recommend that students of magic purchase some of his products (not all, but some). I won't comment regarding the aspects of "Street Magic" in the article. But I will say that Mr. Swiss was a little heavy handed in his criticism of Brad Christian and the Ellusionist web site.
