Almost 30 years of studying and performing magic have given the author the experience to know what works before an audience. This knowledge has been used to invent and select only the best in cutting-edge card effects. Combined this seasoning with fifteen years of international lecturing to magicians and the result is strong performance material that is properly and clearly taught.
Volume One set the standard for semi-automatic card tricks. Choice material with strong impact and clever presentational ploys helped to make the first volume an instant bestseller. In Volume Two, you will find almost 70 professional card tricks and routines. These are not your typical self - working card tricks. Clever principles and devious subtleties have supplanted sleight of hand. Unlike many self-working tricks, these do not appear to be self-working to the audience. The latest technology along with entertaining bits of byplay have been used to create magical effects which will not only amuse but also astound.
In addition to dozens of effects by the author, contributors include: Simon Aronson, Jack Birnmam, Doug Canning, Aldo Colombini, Tom Craven, Ron Ferris, Joel Givens, Wayne Kyzer, Stewart James, Tom Ladshaw, Marv Leventhal, Simon Lovell, Gene Maze, Steve Pressley, John Riggs, Joe Rindfleisch, Scott Robinson, Allan Slaight, Richard Vollmer, and Steven Youell.
