Hi there. I'm thinking of getting this book. I'm not a beginner and like everybody I like commercial magic that can be added to my repertoire. Please advise me if it's worth the money. Is it similar to some kind of other card magic literature like Focus or Carneycopia?
Thanks in advanve,

Hi Pavlo:
I'm not sure what "I'm not a beginner" means - As with most books - There is a lot to learn - This book is one of the few books that I don't refer to as often as I should - I bought it when I wasn't ready to devote the time necessary to really study this book - I'm glad you brought it back to mind - I look forward to rereading this book - This book if I remember right is packed full of sleights and there is a couple of dissertations on the psychological aspects of performing the tricks therein - the book was published by L&L so the quality of the product is quite high - It's rather a nice book - I wouldn't dissuade you from buying - But if you have other choices available, you may want to explore them

That was no help, was it?

Good luck

What's interesting about this book is the healthy section on the effect wherin a spectator simply looks at a card from a spreak pack and you divine it. A lot of subtle psychology makes this a master class effect. This large section of the book is what I'd check out first were I to buy it...
