I would rather hear Matt comment on the material after several months of fine tuning and readjusting. I think that is what the Fisher book is all about.
You are quite correct, Lee, in stating that one has to live with a book on card technique before
reaching conclusions, and I expect to do just that with Aaron's book. I read important books slowly and I'm only about 50 pages in to "The Paper Engine."
I've enjoyed Aaron Fisher's work in his lecture notes and the Labyrinth one-man issue, and I'm enjoying this book. He is obviously a man of great talent and skill. I had an initial reaction to the Gravity Half Pass which I posted, probably because I'd looked forward to it with much anticipation. I'll be working on it.
By the way, I consider Lee a good friend, as well as an extraordinarily talented magician, as he well knows. I take his comments as part of a serious discussion, not as a put-down. If friends can't tell each other what they think, even on a public forum, what good is friendship?
Thanks for your response Lee, and for your friendship. We might not aways agree, but friendship should allow for that.
