The authors, both noted authorities on magic, present complete, easy-to-understand explanations of shuffles, flourishes, the glide, the glimpse, false shuffles and cuts, the pass, the classic force, and many other techniques. These will enable card handlers to perform over 100 mind-boggling feats of card magic, including Thought Stealer, Gray's Spelling Trick, Do as I Do, Now You See It, Obliging Aces, Rapid Transit, Kangaroo Card, A Tipsy Trick, and dozens of others. Illustrated with more than 120 clear line cuts that make the explanations easy to follow, this exciting introduction to card conjuring will enable even beginners to develop professional-level skill and the ability to perform tricks guaranteed to astound family and friends.

This review is about the incredibly poor quality edition produced by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Their's is a very low quality, print-on-demand, version of the book which has two inch black margins, pixelated illustrations, and lacks substantial portions of the text. Presumably, CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform is one of those companies that exploits the easy availability of free texts to sell print-on-demand versions with no quality control. Also, their edition is almost twice as expensive as the much higher quality Dover one. As far as I can tell, their's is listed first because they lie about the publication date and exploit some sort of searching bug in Amazon. This is a dishonest and opportunistic way to sell overpriced, lower quality, goods online.
Don't waste your money on the CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform edition, buy the Dover Edition instead: The Royal Road to Card Magic
