"This book is a shining gem of a collection featuring supremely practical effects and marvelous examples of rock solid, real-work scripting.
Among my favorite effects are an inspired variation on Frank Garcia’s “Wild Card” and a really lovely variation on the “Split Deck.”
I was especially impressed with the generous spirit of the writing here. As the authors share one smart alternative handling after another there is a sense that they are completely focused on you the reader and care deeply about imparting their creative knowledge in as clear, humble and patient a manner as possible.
Such a gift!" - Jay Sankey
"Obviously, the title will turn off those of you who don't use playing cards for mentalism effects. Too, this work explores very creative uses with gimmicked decks, such as the Wild Card set, the Split Deck, the McCombical Prediction Decks, and an original deck called the BMD (Blatantly Marked Deck).
There's also some work with the tarot. All of the routines with these decks have a subliminal, or Kenton-esque, edge to them. And all of the routines are intriguing and well-thought out.
This is actually a more accessible work by Kenton (and friends) than some of his others which require you to be have a certain familiarity with Kenton's performing philosophies (i.e., "Kentonism"). If the premise of this work interests you, then you'll enjoy this." - Jheff
