Comments
(Brian Rasmussen): This book has effective yet simple card routines to more difficult and stunning show pieces requiring some advanced sleight-of-hand with cards. This is a book you can learn from over time as your skills improve. Specific key sleights are mentioned for most routines. Also contains a nice essay in the foreward and a helpful tips section on the pass.
