Close Culls by Harapan Ong . - Book

Alongside the double lift and the pinky break, the cull is perhaps the most important move in card magic. Few people do the move correctly, and even fewer use the move for anything other than secretly sorting cards. That all changes with Close Culls.

"This is an excellent book for learning the Hofzinser Cull and some clever applications."
- Justin Higham
"Harapan Ong, the brilliant young card magician from Singapore, now living in London, a Member of The Magic Circle, has written Close Culls, a brilliant book on one of card magic's most useful, yet most often neglected, sleights ? the Cull. The well-illustrated book contains a chapter on how to perform the Cull which has many useful tips, plus several variations, and 12 good tricks which use the techniques taught. The level is intermediate to advanced, and if you put in the work your magic is sure to improve."
- Matthew Field
"I've seen Harapan perform some of these tricks live and he completely fooled me even though I knew he was culling. So I bought the book and wasn't disappointed. It takes a unique look at what the cull is truly capable of and teaches some brilliant tricks along the way."
- Stephen Long

Lots of neat ideas using the Cull Report this review

(This review is for Close Culls by Harapan Ong . - Book)
Although this book is a rather short read, the ideas Harapan details using the Cull is eye opening for those who are not too familiar with the move. I do not find many of the effects to be particularly amazing, but some of them are fun to perform because they are done using the Cull rather than some otherwise more conventional methods.
If you have already studied the Cull and use it on a daily basis, then you might be able to pass on this book. If you would like to get an insight on how to use the Cull in some unconventional ways, then do pick this one up.
Overall, I enjoyed reading it. I respect Harapan a lot and this is by no means a jab at him, but I personally believe that this book is priced a bit more than its worth. $20, in my opinion, would have been a fair enough price.
