“I think every magician should own this and be able to do this. It’s one of those tricks that really plays in to people’s emotions.”
-Paul Romhany, *Reviews Vanish Magazine

“When it comes to anything and everything amazing with iPhones, you MUST explore the in-depth work of Michael Murray.”
– Gregory Wilson

“I cannot recommend this enough, ‘Perfect Opener’ is one of the most genius and bold ideas I’ve read in a LONG time. Michael is the master when it comes to iPhone routines and this book is a testament to that.”
– Colin McLeod

Jheff's Guide

WHAT IT IS:
Book, 54 pages

HOW ACCURATE OR COMPLETE THE BLURB IS:
It’s accurate on the contents, but doesn’t really describe the main effect.  Basically, two participants enter their pin codes into an iPhone and then lock that phone.  The performer is then able to unlock that phone and the other participant’s, as well.

WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED THAT YOU NEED OR NEED TO KNOW:
Obviously, you’ll need to know how to operate an iPhone.  You do NOT need one to perform this, but having one helps in practicing the necessary procedures which are not difficult.

SUITABLE VENUES:
Close-up, Walkaround

JHEFF’S JUDGMENT:
Though I do have some issues with the logic in the construction of the main routine, they are relatively minor.  This is strong, fairly easy-to-do material, and so long as you’re comfortable working with people’s personal info (pin numbers), and the use of iPhones, then this is certainly worth getting.
