This is a good history of marked cards. It covers different styles, handling, and some very neat effects you can do with your deck of choice. Boris has a section where he discusses his Deck. I got my first marked deck 55 years ago and know my way around probably above average. I rated this 5 stars because it really is the most comprehensive book I have been through. Kirk Charles has done an outstanding job with his research. Also, the handlings are above average and the illustrations are first rate.
Very Solid Report this review

It's a good book, quick and easy to read. It's a must if you are a beginner with marked deck. Nice tricks inside to make sure you don't spoil everything.

I can't believe I haven't heard more about this book, especially at this price. It has a great history of marked decks that you can buy or make, and some great effects to go along with it. I had hoped to buy Boris Wild's "Transparency" when I can afford it, but in the mean time this will keep me plenty busy for a pittance.
