I'm a beginner at sleight of hand and this book had been referred to be many times by magicians more advanced than I. I decided to purchase it one day and was amazed at how complete it was. It covered everything from flourishes, palming, false shuffles and cuts, glimpses, reverses, crimping, jogging, even had entire chapters on the Faro Shuffle, Mentalism, and another on Presentation and Misdirection. This book is still referred to as the 'bible' on card magic by my teacher. And I find myself flipping through it's pages constantly, always learning something new. And with 318 Illustrations, it was easy to follow. The book covers beginner to advanced moves. So it'll stand against the test of time. And for the price... Well worth it's contents.
