I am planning to purchase the book titled "Small and Deadly" by Paul Hallas. Before buying I was looking for reviews and Table of Contents of the book. I was able to get some reviews on internet. I request if some one could post the Table of Contents(TOC).

swamy,
The book is called "Small But Deadly" and it is a very informative book on packet tricks. Once you start reading it, it is very difficult to put down. It is more on the history of them as opposed to teaching them. You will learn some but not all mentioned.

thanks Rennei for the information.

Yes I am aware of the fact that it is an informative book with considerable history. I am interested in knowing all about packet tricks as a whole. May be this book will help. For e.g. tricks like "Twisting the aces" by N. Trost, Kaleidoscope by Roy walton, Razzle Dazzle by N. Trost are all out of the market and hardly there is any information on the internet and many performers are not even aware of it. Not getting any information of the past is sad.

Considering from the information point of view I am buying it. How much information is available and how much I will be benefited is a ??? till I read the book.
