Hello everyone, anyone know how many card switches are in Ed Marlo's card switches book? Which of his books are good? Also, would anyone recommend the video 45 by Jay Sankey? Thanks

It doesn't matter what the book, pamphlet or manuscript is! If it has Ed Marlo's name on it, get it!

I agree that Marlo is one of the gods of card magic. If you are new to magic, as we might surmise from your posting in this thread, then I'd suggest you start with Marlo's "The Cardician." You will certainly want to get all of Marlo's "Revolutionary Card Technique" (of which the booklet on Card Switches is but one chapter) eventually, but, if you are new, it may be a bit beyond you. If I've misunderstood your skill level, apologies and a STRONG affirmation of the recommendation that you get anything with Marlo's name on it.

Ah...the MASTER!
Ed Marlo is to card magic what Albert Einstein is to physics. His MINT books are nice books, but for basics, definitely try to get the Revolutionary Card Series. I finally learned to do perfect Faros with the faro shuffle titles in this series after struggling with Hugard's Expert Card Techniques. Then move on to his private manuscripts, if you can get them, especially the Riffle Shuffle Trilogy and the Marlo's Magazine series, composed of 6 volumes. Heck, grab any of his publications, even those authored by Jon Racherbaumer, who is actually currently working on bringing Marlo's Riffle Shuffle Trilogy into an updated organized volume. Smile

I would also agree. I have 95% of what Marlo had in print. It's all great stuff. A lot of his stuff is in books/pamphlets authored by Jon Racherbaumer. Some things you may find floating around are the Kabbala's, Hierophant's, all great magazines with good things.

I would also agree with John, if you are new to card magic, start with the Cardician, RCT series. Then get into more advanced things.

But, if something of Ed's comes available, buy it now and read it later. His things are becoming quite hard to find.
