Mac King, U.S.A.

"...an excellent no-gimmick bill switch and an excellent newspaper tear...a very strong effect for laymen." "Highly recommended!"

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 for that!

Terry Ford

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.
