A powerful choice of effects that don't involve sleight of hand Report this review

I really like this book, and the one that follows ("Card College Lighter"). This reminds me of the "Scarne on Card Tricks" book that got me started in card magic many years ago. Each of these effects can be performed with no sleight of hand, but they make it appear you are working miracles. I love effects like this that allow you concentrate on presentation and not worry so much about that pass or slip cut you've got to execute perfectly with everyone watching your hands.
The good thing about this book is that the effects are already grouped into threes. This gives you (if you so choose) a ready-made routine with an opener, middle, and closer. They flow seamlessly between each other. But you can also choose to take any of them as a standalone effect and create your own routine. Some will require a bit of set-up (especially if they are part of a previous routine that would have naturally done the set up for you, like revealing the four aces or something similar) but many are ready to go when you are.
Not every effect is a gem, but there are so many good ones you can't complain. The book is professionally done, and Giobbi does a great job of explaining how to create your own routines and what to look for in them. This book isn't just for beginners, though they will probably benefit the most from it.

I love self working and sleightless card magic and Roberto Giobbi delivers on all fronts. Each trick is well written, through with patter and concept and has beautiful artwork, Already an experienced card shark? No problem - this book contains powerful magic and great concepts - this is not your Dad's beginner card magic book - this is the Card College Son - you're about to get schooled! Out of the three in the series - this is my second favorite, but if you have ZERO of these - START HERE
