The long-awaited True Astonishment Box Set from Paul Harris is finally available. Instead of just telling you about its nine DVDs, sack of gimmicks and awesome wooden box, we decided to show it to you via a video review.

This is your chance to own a piece of magic history. Please click on the image below to learn more.

    Great review, thanks Chris. I'm all over it, as soon as I can afford it. I promised my girlfriend I wouldn't buy any new magic for 6 months--oh well. I knew I wouldn't last long.

    realizing the retail price for this item represents a sizable investment for many people, maybe even for some of your more serious collectors, am wondering whether any provision has been given to possibly selling it DVD by DVD? or perhaps without the crafted, puzzle-maker designed, box? just wondering ...

    The way the ads read Paul isn't performing much of the magic on these 9 DVDs. And only 4 or 5 tricks per DVD, please tell me these DVDs aren't only an hour long each-- if that's the case they could have put the whole set on 3 DVDs. I've been a HUGE PH fan since the late '70s but I get the feeling he's just milking his reputation with this set. Everything seems to be an extension or remake of one of is existing effects, very little new cutting edge material. If there's one thing I've learned over the years about Paul Harris it's that he is without a doubt the laziest man alive. Paul's best ideas are already in print. Back in the '80s his videos went for $69.95 each, and there were 5 of them. I waited 20 years and bought them all on 2 DVDs for $20 each. I think I'll do the same with True Astonishment.

    Hi Sean, the tricks range from self-working to intermediate. Some of the tricks will take a lot of practice, but I think it's worth it. Thanks for your question.
