I'll be completely honest. I struggled greatly with this book. I got it as a freebie with the "Wesley James" DVD-set that covers this book. I stayed true to reading it but found S.W. Erdnase (or E.S. Andrews or whatever his name was) style really hard to follow. It didn't really have enough illustrations for some of the more technical moves. On top of that, at some points, it seemed like there was no rhyme or reason to what was coming next in the book. Unlike Royal Road, this book felt less "journey like" and more sporadic.

All that said, I think it's important to read this book but, as with Royal Road, I would encourage reading it with the DVD-set as an accompaniment. I found engaging my mind with the book and then moving on to the visual/audio of the DVD to be an effective way of learning.

Either way, $9 is not much for a classic piece of literature from the magic/gambling world.

Hint: By the DVD set (if I haven't made that clear enough yet)

The revelations book and videos would probably be even better.
