It's a great book, however you are going to need a lot of practice time to learn the contents. If you are interested in difficult sleights...some which may not be overly practical...then this will be a good buy.
My only complaint is that there are far to many variations of the same sleight (such as the second deal etc.)...this is not neccessarily a criticism, as some may prefer to have many to chose from...but it means trying a lot of different variations until you find one that suits you.

Don't forget, you can visit my site and follow the Marlo button and select his work by book. It will then print out the items contained in the book!

I think that Marlo's RCT is one of the classics of card magic, but I consider it a "post graduate" course. You may be better served by first working through Roberto Giobbi's Card college series before you tackle the Marlo book.

I also think that a magical mentor is a prerequisite for this book. Many years ago, I remember skipping past a number of the moves because I didn't think that they would work. I later saw David Ben perform those same moves flawlessly, and returned to the book with a newfound appreciation for the material.
