I have been really impressed by his columns in Genii (or is it Magic?) and am really looking to buy his book. Does anyone have Vortex and can give me some reviews?

Thanks!

Just a little heads up (and I am posting it here because it will get read by MAYBE 2 people), if you are at all interested in this "topic", keep an eye on the PenguinMagic blog (blog.penguinmagic.com) this Friday for a treat. :)

Everyone that I hear talk about Tom Stone mentions him being the second coming of Tommy Wonder. From what I've seen, I'm inclined to agree. His magic is well thought out and actually looks magical. From that bits and pieces I've read of his book, I thoroughly enjoy his approach to magic.

One of the teaching points of martial arts, very nice. Instead of working on your strongest points, work on the weakest until you have no more weaknesses.
