You may or may not be into card magic it doesn't really matter. Vernon's approach to card magic, and indeed all his magic, transcended mere technique, elevating his presentations into a true art form. His charm, charisma and gentlemanly manner all aided his likeability factor but above all, it was his NATURALNESS.
This factor above everything else, in my opinion shines through his work. It is
now legendary. Read the books David, not just the effects but REALLY read the books: they will almost certainly change the way you approach magic. They did for
me and, for countless others of my generation who were awestruck by the 'Vernon Phenomenon'. Read the books! Take care. Best of luck in all you do.

Vernon worked a problem until it just seemed like magic in his hands. I'm making my way through Ben's book on Vernon and have to say these books are a MUST read in addition to Vernon's own books.

Also, on a similar note, Pepka and I just interviewed Bill Palmer for The Magic Lantern and he talks quite a bit about knowing Vernon and what he learned from him.

Totally agree with the above posts. To get a real flavor of the "Vernon Touch," check out More Inner Secrets, p76, 'The Trick That Cannot Be Explained.' A great example of Vernon taking something and turning it into a showpiece. If you feel like getting more, I recommend Dai Vernon's Book of Magic. It covers most aspects of performing, and is also great.

Oh, I am totally into cards. I own his first volume on DVD - and I have watched that. I love the ol guys - I got to meet Billy McComb at the magic castle one time. Sweet guy. Man, can you imagine the day when Jay Sankey and Daniel Garcia are feeble old men and our kids call them the "masters?"

Eh as long as it IS them and not Chriss Angel.

You really need to read Inner Secrets first. It will show you how Vernon approached the problem of making the Ghost Count logical.
