Al Schneider's magic is always so clean and seemingly effortless

I have admired his approach and style for years. Great thinker...his contributions to magic have been a true gift to the magic fraternity.

I’ve worked on this lately and tried it out some. I bump fists at the end. It went well. I really like it.

Al's work over the years has been very valuable, indeed. Great thinking.

One bump in the road, at least for me, was his last book - Al Schneider Magic from L&L. The writing is incomprehensible. Very difficult to read, for me. Did anyone else experience this??

I have a couple of his earlier works..."Al Schneider on Coins" (1975) and "Al Schneider's Matrix" (1980).

His writing style is straight forward and informative enough to grasp what he is teaching...at least for me. Honestly, I enjoy watching him teach through DVDs. He has a very relaxing and somewhat whimsical speaking style that keeps me engaged...along with his powerful close-up routines with coins, cups and balls, and other classic effects.
