DJT Lecture Download

In 2014 Penguin Magic flew me out to shoot a lecture in their studio with host Dan Harlan.  I had a blast and shared many of my time tested routines.  The lecture runs a little over two hours. There is a follow-up session for another 45 minutes where I share some fun stories.  See below for a list of what is taught.

This still remains as one of Penguin’s highest five-star only reviewed products.

“In the first hour DJT broke the record for most magic per minute!” -Dan Harlan

“Diamond Jim is a wonderful thinker who really understands the construction of powerful magic effects. I thoroughly enjoy his work because he fools me on a regular basis. He’s also got a super sharp wit that totally cracks me up. This guy’s lecture is a must-see event.” -Geoff Williams

“Jim Tyler is truly a Diamond in the magic world. Time and money spent to listen and learn from him is not an expense, it’s an investment in your future.” -Shawn Farquhar
