Thank you Richard

Postby Grippo's Wish » January 29th, 2015, 11:58 am

Hi

I wanted to thank Richard for his excellent offers.

Last month I received "Feints and Temps of Harry Riser", a book I wanted to purchase since it came out (like 20 years ago?). It's more than excellent. I smell the pages every time I open it. Very, very good magic.

Also, I received "The Nex Jinx". Again, I'm a big fan of magazines and this one rules.

Lastly, I yesterday received "Berglas Effects". SO happy to own this book. Every time I remember I payed $25 I laugh on the inside. It's absurd, really.

I didn't know there was a chapter on "Mind Mapping". And Equivoque. Wow, what a book (it's late I know, but let me enjoy it please...).

So again thank you Kaufman & Company.

I'm a supporter of Genii Magazine as well.

And I want to use this thread to thank Richard too.

This week I received Complete Works of Derek Dingle, Amazing Miracles of Shigeo Takagi and Mastering the Art of Magic. My cyber monday purchase.

Thank you for these great material (as writer and/or publisher) and thank you for the deal.

He's a no good bum.

But seriously folks, "The Feints and Temps of Harry Riser" is one of my favorite books. (I edited it.) It has a ton of great tricks and Harry's thinking is well worth studying for magicians at any level of expertise.

If you haven't read it, it's something to consider.

You won't find this sort of stuff on YouTube.

The first card trick in The Feints and Temps, "The Instant Speller" is a killer. Once you understand Riser's method of estimating the number of letters in the chosen card, counting to the card, and the required outs if you miss, you'll have a friend for life.

You will also learn a diabolical card glimpse I first saw in Harry Lorayne's Quantum Leaps. I still remember what Lorayne wrote about this glimpse: If you don't practice and learn this, you're making a mistake.

Thank you Richard!

It's all very kind. Helps give me the motivation to continue reading through the entire 378,000 words of the Tenyo book one more time.

That list of books leaves off Richard's most important publication.

The upcoming Lubor Fiedler book! :-)

As always - thanks for all you have done for magic, Richard. I am going to name my first born child 'Kaufman and Company' as a small mark of my respect.
