This book is an excellent source of learning the card moves and sleights. Very detail! Should have this book!

Here are some more great Jerry Mentzer books for basic card skills:

Cunning Card Miracles
Packet Tricks
Forcing a Card



It says that "Packet Trick" ($8 in Themagicwarehouse) is intended as a companion book to "Counts, Cuts, Moves and Subtlety". Can anybody give a short review on this book? thanks.

http://magicref.tripod.com/booksjr/mentzerpacket.htm Here is a table of contents. It is a very good book (I have it and it is an excellent book) and it is a natural follow-up book to the former book. BTW any book by Jerry Mentzer is worth it.

If you've ever had trouble with a standard Jordan or Elmsley due to the fingertip grip, you may like the Veeser concept taught herein. You may also find that it feels and looks more "natural".

LOVELY book. Well-illustrated, packed with useful stuff, CHEAP.

I've owned mine for about 24+ years now. It's where I learned my cuts and counts in my early days. Definitely worth buying...

Just pulled this book off the shelf after a decade. I forgot how amazing it is.

With all of the garbage out there, sometimes it is the old and simple stuff that is still the best.

This has withstood the test of time beautifully.

Also, one of my "Must Have" Reference books if you ever want to do a packet trick. I find it is also a great tool for tweaking an effects moves for a sometimes better presentation. Especially if you are changing up some patter and this move doesn't flow as well as that move. But mostly I use it as a "go-to" reference for better explanation of moves than what you often get in your written instructions for "X" effect.

Just a update---- Effective immediately Eddy Wade has assumed control of Magic Methods, the magic mail order operation originally founded by Jerry Mentzer in 1969.
