"I love this DVD! I remember the first time you FRIED me with Grandmother's BLT over 10 years ago and I have been doing it ever since. Breaking the Second Rule is simply brilliant and such a practical way to switch a deck. I'm going to start working on Sublime as I just started doing my multiple selection routine again...I LOVE 'the moment' where the knife comes out of the box! Also, I REALLY like your 'thoughts' on the psychotic prediction...this is something that I WILL start doing immediately..."
