5.0 out of 5 stars a fondamental reading for any seriuos card worker, 11 Sept. 2010
Although published in middle of the past century, this is and will remain (for many years more) a cornerstone of card magic. The 3rd edition (which I'm concerned with) has two more chapters by such experts as Dai Vernon and Dr. Jacob Daley. Their intelligent contributions still live with us in writings like Expert Card Technique. Wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best handbook on wing chun, 28 Feb. 2010
I'll strongly second some of previuos reviews, expecially Doctor D's. I think it's the most intelligent presentation (not excessively complicated neither difficult to read and follow) of this art. It's partial with the Wong Shun Leung expression of wing chun (as I am), but the clearness of this book removes all the esotheric thinking often behind this system and reading it may be beneficial to all martial artists (expecially wingchuners, of course). No martial art can be learned from a book but, please, consider this book and the other of this series. They're worth checking.

4.0 out of 5 stars Krenzel's Ingenuities, 28 Feb. 2010
Although You'll find some self-working items, there's not easy stuff here. You must love card and coin magic and for the "easy items" You need a basic to intermediate background of the principles behind the card magic. On the other side, the name of the author on this book is a guarantee. If You check his latest title (Relaxed Impossibilities) You'll maybe find less esotheric (I mean complicated) magic. Actually, for the true lovers of sleigt-of-hand, everything by this author is worth checking(look for his first works!)

4.0 out of 5 stars very good presentation of wing chun, 2 Nov. 2009
This book gives a general overview of the wing chun system. In an easy prose it deals with the history, philosophy, and some energetical concepts related mainly to the practice of the first form (fully explained). There's some imperfection (I spotted a misplced photo in the explaination of the form) but as a whole it's a very good work on wing chun. Michael Tse, in the introduction, preconed future volumes dealing with more advanced forms. We can only hope. Thanks to Ip Chun and Michael Tse, we have another book for every wing chun enthusiast but please don't expect to learn wing chun from this (or any) book.
