I read a post elsewhere on the forum that Juan Tamariz was working on an english translated book of Woody Aragons material. Anyone have any ideas as to when this is due for release ? I've read a few of his effects translated and there's some great ideas there especially his peformance of Aronson's shuffle board

I'm also looking forward to this. I have no idea of the time table, but I really enjoyed the routines I've seen from Woody in Steve Beam's Semi-Automatic Card Trick books.

I'm glad there is an english language book on it's way I did try to translate his "Woodysmo" book but found a bit hard going and although I got the general gist of the methods there are some still some parts of each effect I can't work out. It contains the Shuffle Board effect above and also his routine for the Ten Card Poker Deal which he does in the videos below. Just a shame I can't work out the 2nd phase hopefully it will be in the english book.

^^ Hey, I will (hopefully) be getting his book soon. I will be having it ship from Spain, when I receive it (in a couple of weeks) I can help you out magicphill. I know both Spanish and English proficiently so it shouldn't be so hard for me to give you a translation.

If you're interested let me know!

I'll publish the book by myself.

I apologize all my videos are in Spanish, but, if you understand me in my native language, there is another video with my routine "The Human Scale", a version of the classic "Weighing the cards", which is a Juan Tamariz favourite.

It will be available from Woody or your favorite dealer worldwide. It is being printed in the USA. It will most likely be $49.95 and is quite a massive book. I believe you will really enjoy and get use from the thinking and effects.
