Singapore's Harapan Ong has caused an online sensation with his technical abilities. Videos began to circulate some years ago showing a pair of hands doing extraordinary things. His style is natural, unassuming, and soft. But Aces appear, selections transpose, and magical things just seem to happen in Harapan's hands.

Principia is our very favorite kind of magic book: the kind of book that you pour over every page, trying out each and every piece inside. EVERY single effect in the book (and there are 60 effects described) is practical, fun and radically new. You also receive a special packet of gimmicked cards to use for some of the effects.

The concept of Principia is a magic book fused with a scientific paper on physics. By day, Harapan is a physics teacher and he uses the same laser-focus and precision in both his career and his magic. The results are magnificent.

Harapan's specialty is the under-the-spread cull, and he has created several new techniques in association with this classic tool. The book also features impromptu magic, gaffed card magic, and dead-on easy tricks you can do the first time you try them. We predict that Principia will be the most talked-about card book of the year, and that it will be studied and returned to for many years to come.

Hard cover. 253 pages. Includes set of gimmicked cards.

The author does not let you off easy. You have to study like you were in college to achieve great miracles.

Having only gone through the first five items in this book, I can say that this is material that professional magicians would be glad to use on a daily basis. This is especially impressive considering the author doesn’t perform magic for a living. From self working effects to knuckle busters, this has something for everyone. This is easily my favorite purchase this year.

Most of the information is good, entertaining, and useful. But some, actually quite abit requires moves that I did not know, I’m not a pro at handling cards. When it comes to do the (Frank Birch) one handed cut, but flip the bottom card over. The move in the footnotes states, “ found in the book “Card Handling For Pro’s”. OK, I guess I’ll move on to the next trick. It was a bit disappointing.

Principia is a book chock full of great card Magic. I will begin by saying that. However, even though I’ve been doing Magic for just about 40 years now, and can perform a few key card sketches VERY well, this is a wonderful book, if you are willing to put the work in and the time to learn all the material properly. The effects are fantastic; however, some of the slights and moves in the book will require a fair amount of work. This is definitely a book for the intermediate to the advanced card magician.
