I bought this book almost 30 years ago---while watching Norman, Gordon, Haydon, and Fechter all perform at the Forks. Lots of great stuff in this book, but to me the best part (and rarely mentioned) is his explanation of the Curry Turnover Change at the end of the book. 50 pages to one sleight! With fantastic Ed Mishell illustrations. In this book he was as good as any illustrator before or since. Both the mechanics and the misdirection(motivation and timing)---are explained well. The first trick--The Little Card That Wasn't There--can be a killer---I still do it. It is a trick some laymen do (glide based)---but improved. Put five cards on the table, spectator is SURE their card isn't one of the five, but then.... I've never seen Lorayne teach any of these (curry change) routines on tape, but I'd like to. Folks say there are better changes of a card around---and there probably are---but I don't get caught with this one when done at the right moment.
I've also done Lorayne's simple version of the Dunbury Delusion (called Revelation) for 30 years. I use the Kelly Bottom Placement as a control, a jog shuffle, and the glide. For laymen, the coins seem to take the heat off the glide. Read the book to see what I mean.
