This classic book is a must. Even if the tricks are classics that tend to have a single effect, instead of the modern tricks with several phases and multiple effects.
You will not find contemporary tricks using false counts (Elmsley, Vesseer, Jordan and Hamman counts). The Nikola system described in the final chapter is no longer used in these days, as modern magicians tend to use the Aronson or Tamariz stacks. However, this is one of those rare books that will make a better magician of you, by allowing you to study and understand the creations of the most brilliant card magicians of the first half of the 20th century. You will appreciate and understand modern card magic (Tamariz, Ascanio, Aronson and others) much better, if you understand how it is different from previous card magic, what has been done to improve the methods, where does it come from, which problems were solved, what was added and what was removed. With this book, you will learn how to improve your magic. And you will find many great tricks for your performances too. – Wilhelm Eberhard
