Question - Does all of Aronson's book require you to know a memorized deck in order to perform most of the effects in them?

They don't require a mem deck for all material

SS is the best for mem deck workers!

I like Bound to Please the most; since that one went into great detail regarding his memorized deck. All of them are full of clever routines.

O.k., it's hard to say (for others) but I've all of Simon's books, there are all fantastic, superb material to work on and with, but my clear favorite is SS, not only concerning his books, for me SS was by far the best book I've read the last ten years. But I admit to be a true fan of Simon's deep thinking...

The Aronson Approach was my first introduction to Simon's detailed and subtle thinking, and it quickly became my favorite card book. If you like details, the kind that are borne from experience and deep thought, then reading one of Simon's books will feel like sharing a cup of hot chocolate with a magic mentor next to a fireplace on a rainy night. I love his writing.

Trust me. Buy all his books. There's only four (one, Bound to Please is a compilation) available at this time. You won't regret it.

For me Try the Impossible was best, barely beating Simply Simon. This may be a little off topic but I remember some poster here saying that Simon was releasing a new book soon. Anyone eles hear about this?

I read a few descriptions from an online magic shop and it stated that Aronson's Try the impossible does not involved any necessary memorisation or stack deck, is that true?

I am interested to invest a copy but I am still in doubt. Smile

Hi Andrew,

Try The Impossible contains both impromptu material with any shuffled deck and tricks that require a memorised deck. There is also a large section of routines that use the Aronson Stack, but where you don't need to actually memorise the order. That is probably what you have read about. Those routines use a deck stacked in Simon's memorised deck order, but you don't have to learn the memorsied deck in order to perform them.

Be sure to look in the DVD section here for Aronson's new 3 DVD set from L&L Publishing.

Simply Simon is my current favorite. They are all wonderful.
Humans make life so interesting. Do you know that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to create boredom. Quite astonishing.
