Jon Racherbaumer wrote Big Easy Card Cunning and said "These are effects card experts are not ashamed to do".

It includes a collection of 31 of the author's best creations that require a minimum of sleights. Copyright 1992.

Does anyone have this and know what effects are included? Are they effects printed elsewhere?

I can't find a Table of Contents at my usual sources. Thanks!

Thank you, Jon. Of course it is!

I am a big fan of yours and a new premium member to your site. I should've checked your ebooks page again before posting. I am still overwhelmed by the wealth of material on your site. Double wow.

My only regret is that I waited so long. To all readers of this post, if you are a card guy (who isn't?) and haven't signed up for Jon's site, please do yourself a favor and do so. Even though I don't believe one can have too many card tricks, there's enough material on there to last you a hundred lifetimes. :D

p.s. Thanks for Counthesaurus! It's a great reference guide I will refer to over and over again. Not to mention a lightning rod (correct metaphor?) to spark creativity when coming up with "new" effects.
