Comments (KochMagic): "If you don’t know and use the side steal, you should. If you already do, this book will help you refine your understanding of the technique. One of the best ways to learn a sophisticated card move like the side steal is to divide the move in small steps, learn each step, and then go on to the next step. In the case of the side steal there are many individual elements so the step-by-step approach seems justified. One must learn how to handle the peak, obtain the break, sidejogging the peaked card, and then palming. But so far, no new ground has been covered. Many writers advocate a step-by-step approach. What is believed to be new here is that each element is considered separately as an end in itself. This means that when learning the method of sidejogging a card, the reader will also learn individual tricks which exploit the single technique. When confidence has been gained, the reader can then go on to the more sophisticated applications of the incomplete side steal."
