Comments: From the intro: "The Card Shark is a unique book written about card manipulations, sleights, flourish's and protection against card cheating. Since the book emphasizes card sleights and not simple tricks, it will require many months of practice before the reader can master all of the manipulations. The book has been written for the novice, amateur and as a guide for the experienced magician, it can also be used for player protection, in card games."
