I love this book. I've had this book and 2 other of Karl Fulves self working card magic books since the 1980s. These books are all classics which give you an abundance of self working material. By self working he means you don't need sleight of hand or complicated moves that require weeks of daily practice. However, some tricks do require learning the routine and the use of simple props to do them right. Besides cards most of the props are simple items that are easily obtainable.
The tricks range from very easy to difficult. The easiest tricks can be learned in about 10-20 minutes whereas the harder ones can take about 30-60 minutes or more to learn. Each of his books, including this one, should provide you with at least a dozen very good tricks. This and the book "Scarne On Card Tricks" (probably the best one ever) are fantastic books that contain many amazing self working card magic. In my opinion, this is a perfect starter book for beginners.

I got this because the other reviews said how good it was, but i opened it and gave up almost immediatly. The instructions are difficult to follow.Published on December 26, 2002 by kristen
The tricks in this book are not totally self working. You have to remember a lot and tell people what to do.Published on March 9, 2002
