I just wanted to say that this past Friday (Dec. 13th) Darwin Ortiz gave one heck of a lecture based on his new book "Scams & Fantasies with Cards".
The lecture was put together by Michael Canick of Canick's Booksellers (www.canick.com)here in NYC. Ortiz is a true professional, he almost canceled the lecture due to him not feeling well but realized it would be almost impossible to contact all attendees at the last minute.
Ortiz performed and explained some incredible card magic! He was very courteous and insightful, humorous, witty and very informative. Overall, a truly nice guy.
Thanks Michael for helping to keep magic alive in NYC! Keep 'em coming.
