The latter is obviously so difficult as to be considered ridiculous... but Daniel Madison has never been a man to take the easy way out.
Three things is based on an interesting premise - if you could control every card in the deck - from the spectator’s choice, through multiple cuts and shuffles, right down to the final reveal, how would you prove it?
Daniel discusses the psychology of his presentation and why it works for him - but with elements of card cheating, mentalism and magic throughout this three-phase routine, you’ve got a lot to worth with to make it your own.
The next time someone asks you to show them ‘something’ - show them three things instead.

First of all, this is a great product for those who knows sleight of hand very well, but suffering from lack of ideas. The way he discusses about the philosophy under this effect will give you an idea how to use your skill, and how to make a strong impact on people watching you. If you understand the idea behind this, you will be able to build your own routine stage by stage, and each of every stage will be much more stronger as it goes on. You only need two things for doing such a great routine; patient, and practice.
You have to know your own slight of hand for this trick, he doesn't explain how to do the different shuffles he does in the video. He reveals the trick, but not how to do the techniques for it, which upset me. It's not worth paying for.
As with everything Daniel Madison(DM) releases you get so much more than you anticipate. However do not mistake this for your average tutorial. No in fact it is much more powerful than that; what DM has released is an idea. An idea that can be shaped to fit your needs and your routines. Now there is nothing in life that is without cons and Three Things is no acception. With Three Things you must already know certain sleights. If you already have an extensive working knowledge of card magic, plus you have watched DM's Mechanic DVD/DOWNLOAD then you should be fine. Otherwise you will need to watch Mechanic and already know sleight of hand. Overall the idea behind Three Things is powerful and well worth the time and energy that you put into it. If your looking for a way to show your skill with cards look no further. 5/5 stars
