Re: MirACAAN by Dorian Caudal

I watched one of the videos. It reminded me a bit of the lazy man's card trick! Maybe that is part of the method! Not that method :) I cannot comment on the book since I haven't read it and I do not wish to comment on the performance. I shall merely say that I wish the author the best of luck. Crea...

Re: MirACAAN by Dorian Caudal

Tom's review was honest, as I said, but he focused his review on some parts only, thus making the initial review incomplete. Not in his opinion, as you stated, you contacted him crying and he said he had nothing to add to the review. Please, mr goat, can you stop polluting this thread ? You are cle...

The link I provided above is for the second version of the book, MirACAAN 2.

Personally, since I don't use a memorized deck, "Think a Card" has been the most valuable thing from the book for me. Considering the type of reaction it gets, it was worth the years I spent working with David on the book. Exactly, Think a Card is really powerful when executed well. It's ...
