For those of you who want a short synopsis, here it is:
Between the covers of this book, youll discover a wealth of original magic using cards, coins, balls, dice, ropes, rings, bills, Scrabble tiles, and much more. There is ingenious apparatus that you can build, elegant card flourishes to execute, and self-working miracles with cards and coins that are designed to bewilder and entertain. 240 pages divided into 28 chapters are filled with a variety of sleights and effects geared for the beginner as well as the intermediate and advanced magician. All sleights and routines are explained in step-by-step detail using 450 sharp black and white photos. A 95 minute companion DVD supplements the text and photos with additional video explanations and demonstrations. This book reveals for the very first time prized secrets and techniques that were developed over many decades of performing and creating magic. Moreover, these secrets and techniques have been incorporated into structured routines with precise scripts. The net result is a collection of mystifying and entertaining presentations that takes a trick and transforms it into a memorable theatrical experience for the audience.
