Comments (Zigby7): This is a combined volume of three of Jerry's previous publications: "Super Dupes" deals with emphasis on gambling routines; "Odd Lifts" deals with a single category of sleights with heir tremendous usefulness to the card worker; and "Secret Subtractions" is versatile, flexible sleight used used to duplicate the results of various addition and add-on moves. This section contains five effects using this sleight. Caveat: Not for the beginner. This is a blockbuster of useful card information. These combined books constitute a major useful encyclopedia for anyone interested in excellent card magic in their performances.
