Card College Volume 3 teaches the Zarrow and Pull Through false shuffles very clearly and cleanly. I would recommend it highly (plus a lot of other useful info).

After several months of practice I am beginning to see a gradual improvement . . .

Herb Zarrow on the Zarrow Shuffle is the best place to learn the Zarrow Shuffle. Here is a catalog listing so you can read more about it!

If you are looking for a couple of straightforward overhand shuffles, then look to Royal Road to Card Magic. This has many fundemental sleights and techniques. An alternative source for a good overhead shuffle (and other sleights) would be Card College Vol 1.

You should also check these 2 sources:

-Allan Ackerman Advanced Card Control serie - volume 5
-Daryl's Encyclopedia of Card Sleights - volume 2

My favorite false shuffle is the in-the-hands false riffle shuffle taught at the end (bonus section) of the Gary Ouellet's "Close-Up Illusions" companion video. It is very deceptive and quite easy to learn.

Hope this helps.
