Comments: Illustrated by Jon Dyke. From the introduction: "What do we gain by using the absolute minimum of sleights, and substituting instead set-up decks, feke cards and subtle routining? First we can put nearly all our concentration on the presentation of the trick. We should feel much more confident and relaxed. Secondly, we do not have to worry about angles; the audience can be as close as they like, but will see no ' funny moves.' In this book you will find some card routines to suit most tastes in intimate card magic. All these effects are commercial and have been thoroughly audience-tested. They have all been devised by the blending together of ideas acquired from various sources over the last ten years in magic. Only one sleight, the Paul Curry Turnover Change is used."
