Without a doubt, this reprint of "Effective Card Magic" is one of the most outstanding treatments written on card magic. An entire act of card tricks could easily be culled from this book.

Format: Paperback
I hope a lot of people take the first reviewer's advice and stay away from this book. Then, card magicians like myself will be able to fry you with effects in this "childish" tome.
For those interested in some good card work and clever moves that still populate card literature, you need to read this book. It's simply part of your required reading. The section on dealing seconds is one of the most detailed in all magic, and it gives a clear practice regimen to assist the student in learning to do the move.
Again, please -- don't buy this book!

If I could have, I would have gave this book no stars. This book is for three-year olds. NO, and I mean NO audience would be entertained by this book. The tricks are so easy and noticable that everyone would know how to do them. For example: 2 of hearts plus 2 of clubs equalls 5 of spades, oops I mean 4. You just have to set the deck. You can come up with more entertaining and better tricks than these even if you are just a beginner.
