This is the fourth installment of Roberto Giobbi's Card College, and it is amazing! As with all his books, everything is VERY clearly explained in writing, with pictures so clear, it's even possible to learn the techniques just from seeing the pictures alone. In addition to just describing the techniques, he also writes about the psychology and timing behind each move, how to make the move work and why it does.

Some of the topics covered are card/packet/deck switches (in 3 seperate chapters, forces, estimation, sandwich techniques, about 10 different passes (including half passes), and the tilt. There are more, but these are the things deserving the most mention.

There are many great tricks in the book, but in my opinion that isn't what the book is about. They are good tricks, and although I don't use many of them myself, it complements the teaching of the sleights well, showing how they apply to tricks.

One last thing that must be mentioned: The last chapter in this book is an essay on theory. Very good stuff.

So in conclusion, if you perform card magic BUY IT!

I've said it before and I'll say it again. The Card College set is the absolute, hands down, BEST POSSIBLE resource on card magic. Anyone can learn from these books as they are so well written and the techniques and sleights are described so clearly. In this volume (4) I particularly enjoyed his detail on "the pass" with about 10 different techniques to accomplish this sleight, or rather: sleights. No better way to learn card magic than having Robert Giobbi hold your hand.

Hi. This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer, B_Magic!

The Card College series is similar to books like "Modern Coin Magic" for coin workers, or "Royal Road to Card Magic" or "Expert Card Technique" for card guys...it's a MUST HAVE. The book is a staple in card magic that will not only give you a fantastic start into card magic, but will give you an excellent source of sleights and effects for years and years to come.

I bought the Card College series years ago, and even after making a successful living in magic for over a decade now I still benefit from the books. Everytime I flip through the books I find something new, or something I'd forgotten, or something that I'm now ready for that I wasn't before.

You simply must get these books. If you are even reading any reviews on these books just add them to card now. It's well worth it.
