I have finally found a card trick book that actually presented entertaining illusions without hours of practice trying to master multiple sleight of hand techniques. In fact, I picked up a half-dozen card tricks in about a half hour.
Three ingredients would have made this book a ten: 1) More ideas on presentation and patter. 2) Better illustrations. 3) Some of the explanations could have been a bit clearer.
All an a good book for amateur magicians of all ages looking to add quality card feats to their bag of tricks.

An excellent book from Karl Fulves. Although the title might suggest anyone can perform these tricks, you should be aware that some knowledge of basic manipulation is required. Having said that, it's an excellent book for anyone prepared to put in the time required to learn the magic.

If you have friends like mine there is absolutely no way they will let you get away with setting a deck. As soon as those cards come out they'll want them shuffled which is fine for half the tricks in this book which at best are obvious ie. note the bottom card style tricks. The majority of the rest of the tricks require that you rig the deck prior to the trick. I bought this book to entertain my mates at the pub. Frankly i'm very disappointed. The outline said that the tricks are self-working based on the statistical distribution of the cards in the deck, or something along them lines, but i'm afraid thats just not true.

The level of detail is insufficient for kids and the diagrams are relatively basic.
I guess the tricks themselves are OK, some relatively obvious one, but then what do you expect from the title.

This book is just too cheap for kindle, the information is fantastic, start to finish there's something for almost all skill levels. If you're intermediate to advanced you won't use the 'tricks' but you're sure to get some new take on worn principles. To reviewers rating it down, false shuffles & cuts get stacked decks into play, look up the half pass for reverse effects.
The price is worth it for the near forgotten Long Distance effect alone (try getting work this way, mail business + playing cards in advance with a note for the time of call etc.) Guaranteed to utterly destroy a future client if combined with a blind book test.

This is a first class publication for magicians of all levels it is very informative in an easy going sort of way, the demonstrations are clear and concise and would be easy to follow regardless of your skill level.
Once again I have received a book from Amazon that was in tip top condition , which arrived promptly and has been read from cover to cover several times already.

Some of these tricks are mind -boggling. Some of them are so easy to execute.......but I still do not understand why some of them actually work.
