Being interested in stacked deck work, particularly pertaining to mentalism, and having learnt and used the Aronson stack, I really looked forward to Mnemonica.

When it arrived, I flicked through it, and thought, "oh s**t, this is all about faro shuffles", and placed it onto my bookshelf where it remained until a few months ago.

Then one day, when I unexpectedly had a completely free day, I took it back down and started reading it properly.

I read it right through, and my original impression was completely wrong. It is a goldmine of fabulously inventive and devious work with a stacked deck.

To such an extent one effect impressed me so much that I have unlearnt the Aronson stack and replaced it with the Mnemonica stack (not an easy thing to do). This effect can't be done with other stacks.

I now think so highly of this book, that if I had to part with all my library apart from one book, this is the one I would keep.

So, whoever buys this from Patrick, you are in for a treat.

OH MAN! Do I take it off the market? I will leave it up for a few days while I read through it again.

Darn you Quentin Reynolds you make me doubt my own sanity! :D

p.s. Cindy sends her love. We hope you are well.
