Just ordered the book from the flourishman a couple of days ago. Anxiously awaiting my copies arrival! For those that have ordered one from flourishman, how long did it take?

Yes, amazing it is.

Delivery depends on where you live. International take a lot longer obviously. I live in Australia and it took 3-4 weeks. But that was over the Christmas period as well.

I've talked to guys who said they waited twenty years for a resource like this, so shipping time isn't that much more to wait. There has never been such a massive amount of information packed into one place. There are 2800 photographs, funny and informative descriptions, and priceless advice. The writing is top-notch, light years above the clumsy prose you find in most magic books. There are 80 original creations like the L-Cut, Fan Twirl, Right-hand Indices Fan, Deck Twirls, fancy overhand shuffles, fancy deals, fabulous table cuts, tons of armspreads and on and on and on. The Double Armspread and Overhead Spring alone are easily worth the price of the bookGo to flourishman.com and Handlordz.com to see tons of video of the Flourishman. check out the review on this very Magic Café. This is a quality product, produced by someone who really understands all aspects of the art.

Can you order it from any book store, or does it have to be flourishman.com?

You have to get it from flourishman.com I couldn't wait for mine so I actually did a priority mail when I ordered my book.

Jerry actually made this book himself. He learnt how to print books!

I ordered mine from the man himself. Jerry. He amswered any questions I had once I received the book. Awesome guy! You were able to order it from Superhandz as well but I guess its sold out. Zur's info is where to get it only.
I have tons of magic books. The EOPCF by far exeeds any book (Like Jamil said)as far as priceless tips, pictures, info ect. You can pretty much learn just looking at the pictures. Two words "Buy It"!!

My book is great like all others but it is not perfect, I heard a few of the books have pages misplaced at some places, in my book, its not very misplaced but one page is turned the wrong way, in other words, if you take page 4 out of a book, rip it out. turn it over and glue it back. So after page 3 comes 5 and then 4 and then 6, that's how mine is.

I also heard that one guy got the whole chapter on armspreads up side down and another guy had 6 pages in his book missing.

But I think it doesn't matter, its a great reference.

I guess it's like getting a defected DVD. It happens.

Hehe yeah, but jerry is a cool guy, I heard he sent the dude a corrected version of the book totally free, no shipping cost or anything, that's really good for that much work.

The book is in its third printing. I talked to Jerry, and he says about six books total have been defective, and of course he replaces them frr of charge. I'm sure he would even replace Harwins book free of charge as well if Harwin were to ask him. Anyway, to focus on minor production errors in a few books out of thousands is certainly misguided. I can only imagine the flustered Harwin standing on his head to try to learn the motions on the upside page.

There is an opportunity here for a post concerning Harwin going the wrong way but I won't touch it. The point is, it is sleazy to say the book isn't perfect and then talk about rare production errors. The content, presentation and scope of the book are what matters.

My only problem with the book is, it doesn't have Jerry's Autograph in it. I forgot to ask him to sign it! My book was in perfect form front to back. Jerry was even nice enough to add two bookmarks with it that have the "Flourishman" logo on them. What a guy!
