There are so many Penguin lectures available now, that one would be hard pressed to identify all the gold nuggets within.

What are your favourite single tricks, bits of business or advice from within the magnificent downloadable collection?

For me everything in the Bob Cassidy lecture was great and I also enjoyed Alan Rorrison and of course Max Maven but honestly I think they all offer something and think they are better than most DVD's.
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

Tough question... Can't choose a favorite but here are my top ones...

David Williamson- Lecture was GREAT, but I really loved his color changing triumph (forget the actual name). The trick and presentation was just amazing.

Max Maven- I really liked the card trick with the three different color decks, the one he said no one will perform.

Colin McLeod- Love the opening trick and a couple of his card predictions and effects. Especially the one that I think is the identical effect to Paul Vigil's Diplopia, but with an entirely different method. Thought that was a pretty cool thing to have in my arsenal. I remember reading a David Copperfield interview years ago in which he said he had multiple methods for each trick. Not sure if that was actually true, but I alway thought it was a pretty cool concept.

Oz Pearlman- What's in a name? His effect is so strong
Joshua Jay- wonderful storyline with Hitchcock, I believe he also teaches Timeless, but his material is strong, stuff for close up and parlour
John Guastaferro- He teaches his rope routine "Full Circle" and his color changing deck, great economical handling

For me it was R Paul Wilson's Ace Assembly. I had been Mcdonalds aces for a while but this quickly replaced it.

I would agree, that was definitely a highlight!

Lonnie Chevrie coin in bottle. Killer. Just wish I could find the correct bottle. Also enjoyed his coin routine with the funnel

Yes, I suggested it.

Here's what's included:
Kenton Knepper - Coin in Balloon
Jay Sankey - Carbon Paper
Dan Harlan - The Incredible Shrinking Rubber Band
Daniel Garcia - Pop
Harry Anderson - Skippy
Eric Jones - Oil and Water
Woody Aragon - How to Find Your Other Half

For the price, an unbelievable bargain.

Joshua Jay's Hitchcock

Ian Rowland's Thetalia

Devin Knight's Blindsight - there was a lot of cool usable material in the lecture

I loved Max Maven's lecture but then, I think Max would be enteraining reading the phone book.

Rob Zabrecky's take on the Sneak Thief plot was hilarious and brilliant.

The whole lecture was great, but that routine was particularly special.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Scott Alexander lecture. It's the best value I have ever gotten as far as downloads go. If you are interested in his Needles effect, he teaches you how to make it. I use it all the time! Everything else he teaches on there is real working material and great advice.

The entire Tom Stone lecture was amazing. It is the best in my opinion.

I felt that the Danny Archer lecture had lot of variety, and all the effects have been road tested for years by him.

I've only seen a couple of these, but I really learned a lot from and enjoyed the Jay Scott Berry lecture.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Of the bunch of lectures I have bought, Mark Elsdon was the stand out for me.

The 'down the pub' persona he has is great and unpretentious, yet he comes across as very well read and as a guy who takes the art seriously.

Plus, some of his tips regarding equivoque are absolute gold.
