I really want to thank you for sharing with all "the magic fraternity" these so precious touches...You could have kept this for yourself, and it would have been legitimate...This is a real gift to Magic....may be to good...I just hope everybody will appreciate the amount of love and respect you have put in this masterpiece... ....All the methods you use to attach the different "tools" during the presentation of each trick are so diabolically clever and practical....At every moment, "this sacro saint " misdirection is the key word, and used to perfection.... I really think that what you give here is the most versatile hidden friend, both for close-up or stage, which any lover of our Art can dream off... Gaetan Bloom
Wow! The DVDs are terrific and I think smart magicians will be rapturous. These DVDs are an important contribution to our art. Bravo. John Racherbaumer
My congratulations to all your production team for the terrific product you made. Nowadays there are a lot of DVD's, most of them are unnecessary and offer just small variations, and they are made with little love and obviously just to make money. Yours has many aspects that make the DVD's very valuable. They are the result of part of your life dedicated to study and practice the "Invisible Hand", as you name it, with a nice metaphor. It is uncommon that someone takes the time necessary to make such an exhaustive and deep research on a subject. I enjoyed in particular the historic backgrounds as well as the systematic approach that, as you know, is a subject of my interest. The didactics is exemplar and show your ample culture, knowledge and intelligence. The magic tricks you explain, and I saw up to now, are all terrific! You transmit your enthusiasm on the subject and you have an excellent ability to communicate through such a difficult media as is the DVD. Roberto Giobbi
