Comments: Third in the magic of Wayne Dobson "Dobson's Choice" series. From the publisher, "Much of the material in this book can be injected right into a magicians act, with little or no modification. The effects themselves have been simplified to remove the difficult sleights and complications that intimidate some magicians. These routines have been honed to perfection over thousands of performances. This stuff is sound workable material."
