How to perform feats of MATHEMATICAL WIZARDRY!

They'll marvel at your amazing number tricks, games, lightning calculation, your magical knowledge. They'll think you're a genius!

You are going to love the things this book will teach you. Absolutely nothing to carry, no gimmicks! Just great number magic! These are, anywhere, anytime, on the spot number miracles.

Sample Effect

A member of the audience multiplies two 3-digit numbers together, and then reads you every digit in the answer except for one of them, and you can instantly name the missing digit!!! (This can be done as a mind-reading, a memory or a lightning calculation feat)!

And, that's only one of so many amazing, mind-blowing feats of lightning calculation. Harry's selected only the most entertaining effects! He's also introduced new touches to improve presentation for many familiar routines.

Armed with this book you can become the "life of the party" with just paper, a pen, and a calculator. Harry has collected this stuff since childhood, and culled out only the best of the best. You'll instantly square any 2 digit number; add columns of numbers at a glance; prove that your mind is the best and fastest machine out there, by multiplying and dividing faster than a calculator can!

Well, I'd seen Mr. Lorayne performs one effect from the book in an IMS Gold Series and I liked it a lot so I decided to purchase it, mainly cos it sort of promissed "things that'll make me seem like a genius" and the similar. The truth of the matter is that this book is arcane.It had nothing new to add to my knowledge and had I known that- I'd never buy it.
It starts with a trick that's titled "1089" and though I'm not gonna reveal what it's about- I'm more than certained that ANYone who knows the LEAST of math-magics would know the effect.I just thought that the book starts with the 'basics' and it'll eventually become better, but no, to my disappointment. I can only assume that those tricks WERE ONCE good, but in today's world they're best described as obselete (apart from "nice effects" which -again- I had already known).
In conclusion- it's not a total waste of time, it can more than serve the youngsters who really have no notions (nor basic mathematical thinking) about math, but if one wishes to expand his(/her) mind and knowlede about math-magics- then I'd say that it'll feel just like reading a newspaper from the past- it may get you a tad exited but that will be all it'll do.
