Comments (Uli Weigel): Photography by Lewis Ganson. Another classic book with plenty of classic effects and techniques. The original "Twisting The Aces" is within these pages, as well as the famous "100$ Ace Routine", Vernon's "Oil and Water", mental masterpiece "Out of Sight-Out of Mind", great Chapters on the Riffle Shuffle, the Force and Crimps. A must.
