What a lecture!! We had a packed house and John delivered one of the best lectures I have seen. Besides being a stand up guy and a heck of a pool player, John floored me so bad during the lecture I stood up and demanded he share the goods. (by the way, I don't recommend this kind of behavior, but John was cool and besides, he was going to teach it anyways.)

His coin work was amazing and he brought a guy up from the audience who was a layperson that came with a fellow magi. John showed him how easy it was to perform some of his coin magic and the layperson was doing the trick in under a minute!

It is very refreshing to come to a lecture and actually learn something. A lot of lectures are sales pitches. They show you the tricks, quickly run through how to do them and then they show you their table of products to buy what they just showed you. But John was meticulous in showing us the ins and outs of his effects even to the point of discussing presentational theory. Besides some of the magic being easy to pick up, he showed us some killer stuff that was very commercial and doable on so many levels. John also had plenty of product to sell and teased us with some great magic. My guys ate it up! I got so many raving reviews about John's lecture that I had to let everyone know you gotta get this guy! I am so glad that I did!

Cheers,
Aaron

Ditto to everything Aaron said, John put on a great lecture. If you haven't seen him take advantage of any opportunity that you get.
