Comments (CoronaSmith): This is Dorny's best book. One of the highlights of this book is the "Who's Who and Why" section which will tell you a lot about the colleagues of Dorny. Also included is a good patter section and a number of tricks ranging from cards, coins, mentalism; most of them contributed by other magicians like Hugard, Blackstone, Jordan, Brema, Hilliar and others.
