Comments (Andrew Loh): This is one of the best card magic book simply because each of the chapter will explain certain card moves in great details and its applications in the card effects which I think is mind-stimulating to fellow readers. Also you will discover how those card moves would fit nicely to each of the card effects and thus, create an excellent piece of wonderful card magic. I really highly recommended this excellent book!
