Beautifully crafted book with stunning dustjacket art. The photos are reproduced on the glossy paper better than any book I've seen. Amazing original routines. The card stuff is so different from the usual variations of the same old stuff. Intuitive Concentration is like the game concentration played with cards and you win each time. Best there are no marked cards, you can use borrowed cards. ESP Duel is an OOTW with the spectator shuffling. It's very clever easy to do, and would fool magicians. I do mentalism and Triple Psychometry is going into my show. A number of cards are secretly placed in three envelopes with colored labels and while blindfolded you reveal the number of cards in each envelope and which of three spectators holds which colored envelope. There is no peeking. It uses no sleights. Fantastic section on the linking rings. Many original ideas and moves plus Larry's take on the traditional ones. Beautufully performed on the DVD. Another trick which is going into my act as A Curious Type of Arithmetic. I don't usually use other people's patter but this one is so well written that I will recite it as is. In the apparatus section there is an unusual magic production box called the Treasury Vault. Complex engineered box that is used to produce a shower of coins or other loads. Another apparatus section effect that I will use is Aunt Tilly's Will. This is difficult to describe in a few words. There is an easel with 25 tiles that have different numbers of cats and dogs on them. A spectator acts as the heir to the will in this play and must solve Aunt Tilly's riddle or her cats and dogs inherit the fortune. A wonderful effect using a forcing matrix that is entertaining and bewildering. Larry supplies free downloads on his website for the artwork and other material to make up the trick. I was a big fan of his previous book Kingdom of the Red, but this book surpasses that in its variety of quality usable material. Very happy with my purchase. David [/quote]
