Andi and Josh from Vanishing Inc. out did themselves with this book design and layout. It is hands down the great looking book I own, not to mention the content!
John Guastaferro's essays will get you re-thinking a lot of how you perform the current tricks you already do. How the smallest change in patter, timing, structure of the effect can change your spectators reactions immensely.
John's effects are straight forward, clean handling, structured around a great presentation. What more can you ask for. 20 effects (that you will use! no filler in this book, you get nothing but gems), 5 essays, and to top it all off it looks good on your bookshelf.
Any serious student of card magic that doesn't own this book is missing out.
One of the best books I own Report this review

I got this book for the Homage to Homing trick. I am not disappointed. It is one of those tricks that floors people. The best part is that it is completely impromptu. Although you do have to have some previous knowledge on card technique, it isn't too hard. The level of difficulty is intermediate to advanced for some of the effects, but nothing too daunting
So far, I have learned two tricks (including Intro-verted) and I am anxious to learn more. I felt justified for the the two tricks alone, but there is so much material to keep me busy for until the summer. This is a definite buy if you want material that isn't overly exposed out there
Great book Report this review

Great book for card magicians. Many of the routines are "workers" and need no setup or difficult sleights. Instructions with lots of pictures, easy to follow. Recommended.

This book is unbelievable. I've read half of the book and it's already worth the $50 I paid for it. The tricks are intermediate and require previous knowledge in sleight of hand, but if you're like me and made it through Card College, looking for some tricks with good structure to apply your skills to, this is it. I don't know why this book isn't more popular! The only fault of this book may be that a few of the effects are a bit to long and winding, but just don't use those--go for the gold. There's tons of gold in here.
