Is it what I thought?

Its more than a book, Scott has made some video explanations that work alongside a program you can download to your phone and when you hover the phone over the book - a video starts playing IN the book !!!

Positives: It's always nice to get a peek into a creative mind like Scott Olgard, The Creative Element is a wonderfully adventurous approach to magic books and card magic

Negatives: Some of the tricks are kind of gnacky and they may work for Scott and his performance, but I didn't feel confident they would work for me in mine.

Overall score: let's toss out the traditional score of 1-10 and make this something that we all can appreciate and understand.
