I know this topic will probably start some heated debates, but the purpose is really I have money to buy one or the other. I'm fans of both and have several videos and books from both. IMO I was disappointed by the Best of Jay Sankey series and to be fair I don't think that ETMCM 4-6 were as good as 1-3. While Jay seems to re-release his own material quite often, some of Michael Ammar's(or the stuff on his videos,not necessarily his own, I know) can be some what long-winded, especially for our attention deficit-disordered society! I look forward to everyone's thoughts and feedback. Thank you.

<<Yawn!>> The series stared out great, but now it's obviously all about the money. Save your money. Go with the new Al Schnieder DVDs or better still, grab some Darwin Ortiz or Peter Duffie.

Agree. Buy another magician. Learn different trick.

I think volumes 4-6 of ETMCM were the best, especially volume 4. I would agree that the material on 7-9 is not as strong. Some of the material is flat out boring. That said, I think the tapes would be great for a beginner and there are a few great tricks sprinkled about. If you will be basing your view of them on the first 6 volumes, I would go with another set of dvds.

I didn't think Sankey's Revolutionary Card Magic was too great either. I bought it expecting to learn "revolutionary" techniques, but they are far from that. Also, most of the effects require gaffs/set-up to accomplish. Like the others, I would advise you to go with a different DVD set. I don't have ETMCM, so I can't comment on that.
