"Josh Jay rocks! Great magic, and I
loved the intimate insight into the behind the scenes shots while touring with
Josh. It feels like watching a real world documentary on topics magicians care
- Michael Ammar
"You will see Joshua at his very best!
A clever, likable, and entertaining magician. The tricks are good but the lessons
he teaches are even better."
- Bill Malone
"In an overflowing sea of magical DVDs,
this one stands high above the rest because of its tremendous value, its excellent
content and it's just plain fun to watch!"
"I'm very impressed. The tricks and
explanations are good, but this DVD shows the off-camera side of Joshua that
has not been captured on video before. Better than going to a lecture; it's
like spending a couple of days with him. Bravo."
