O vídeo Pocket Power (50 minutos de duração), apresentado pelo jovem
mágico norueguês Jarle Leirpoll é muito bom para demonstrar os
efeitos que o autor descreveu no livro de 64 páginas que tem o mesmo
título. Entre diversos efeitos, Jarle ensina como retirar do próprio
sapato uma lata cheia de refrigerante e como "transformar" uma
nota de dinheiro em outra sem o uso do conhecido aparato manual. O
vídeo e o livro podem ser adquiridos através do site do mágico em:

I finished to read (not to digest...;-) Pocket Power. It's really a
great book! I like Norwegian Travelers - it's a very good piece of
magic. I have also finished reading Leading With your Head, and you're
right: It's a very good book about misdirection. Thanks for the advice!
Guillaume Singer, France
I should admit now that I am a fan of yours! I have your book Pocket
Power, and like it very much. the advice contained within it has help me
use moves that otherwise I would have considered too risky. So thanks
The theoretical parts are sublime! I’ll read them again and again, and
study them as well as I can, because that’s very important for me. The
Coke In Shoe is a must! Man, I really love that one!!! I don’t think I’ll
ever take it out of my repertoire. And the No Gimmick Bill Change is
without any question a true gem!
Loved the Stealing chapter. I also must say I laughed (out loud,
sometimes…) with your subtle jokes spread in the text. Nice!
Your book as become a reference for my work from now on. I’ll read it
again and re-read it, ‘cause I just love it.
Thank you once again for sharing your thoughts, ideas and knowledge
trough the book, and for helping me find my way to grow up in magic.
João Peneda, Portugal
Thanks for one of the MUST HAVE books out there!!! I recommend Pocket
Power often. It keeps me thinking and focused on the naturalness of it
all. Thanks for giving this subject so much time and effort....it shows!
I'm ready for MORE !! Deck switches for sure!
James Colvin Sterling, Va. USA
I have been a big fan of your magic since I saw you at the
Blackpool convention a few years ago. I own your Pocket Power book and
video which are very wonderful indeed. I also bought your Card in
Mousetrap at the Blackpool Convention a couple of weeks ago, which I
can't wait to start working on. Your Bill Switch is one of my most
popular effects; my audiences are always talking about this effect. So I
owe you a big thank you.
