Comments: From the Introduction by Stephen Tucker: "Forget The Magnificent Seven and The Famous Five, instead... prepare to encounter Six Masterpieces from the fertile mind of Wayne Dobson. The six jaw-droppingly good routines in this book were originally destined to be either marketed, as individual tricks, or unleashed on the unsuspecting magic world in the form of, what would have had to be, a high priced DVD...To do this, he has had to put his thinking cap on and adapt all six routines so that you will be able to perform them with props that you either already have, will be able to buy or can make at very little cost."
