Very good Report this review

Very good book. I should warn people that in the book he doesn't include dimensions or very detailed explanation on how to build the illusions. I don't see this as a negative. In fact, I see it more as a positive for a couple reasons:
1. He covers a lot of illusions (I think you get more bang for your buck).
2. You can use dimensions to suit your own size or needs.
It is a great book with many many ideas and enough information so you understand the effect and the mechanics of how it works along with illustrations.
For someone who is a bit handy at building things, this book is great!

Totally Awesomeorama!!!! Report this review

I have recently become a big fan of Andrew Maynes work. In the last couple of months I purchased hid DVD's In Half, Bisection Unlimited, Illusion EFX and Levitator. I loved each and every one and have already built a couple of the illusions from them. This book is a great read and has a ton of illusions and concepts. Even if you only end up using one or tow of them in your show, it will be money well spent! He has some pretty unique ideas and I really enjoyed going through the book. Makes for a good read!

More of a brain dump Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 28th, 2014
The book (or rather photocopied b&w pages around a plastic binder) has a large number of "concepts" contained within as opposed to illusion plans so do not expect to be able to produce these illusions without guidance from probably a professional cabinet maker.

The illusions contained within do follow the traditional ways to make people appear/disappear but the value comes from the novel ways to perform the effect.

This is a collection of brain dumps (one page explanation and one page a hand drawing for each illusion) from which the reader is meant to take advice and polish in order to develop and build their own illusion.

Certainly a valued book for those wanting to get away from the norm of an off-the-shelf illusion.
