Broke after a few weeks, only one side of the earphones played sound. Annoying having to buy it again. What a shame.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do NOT BUY, 10 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Terrible product, do not buy. Never before have I had to return a product, but with this one after just 30 mins I was online looking for my refund. I was tested hydrostatically which is the most accurate way and I got 11% body fat. I'm lean and can see some abs. This terrible product said I was 22% body fat! Such a scam. Then after the gym it said I was 17%. State of the art equipment, I think not. Do not buy this or any tanita products, they do not work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book for the beginner - Less so for the more advanced, 30 July 2011

If you have studied RR and are familiar and comfortable with the different shuffles and sleights, then you are probably not going to learn as much from this book. For the more advanced, see it as a celebration of cards - there are a lot of informative facts and stories that you will never have heard from and some pretty good tricks too. For such a good price, it is still worth a read as you will surely pick up a thing or two.

For the beginner, this is a good place to start in card magic

4.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable encyclopedia, 30 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Okay guys, this is THE next step after the royal road to card magic. Please remember though that ECT was written BEFORE RR. The royal road was written because it was felt that ECD was too complex for the beginner. That said, it is still hard. The reader should read through the book with caution and with good time. It is also important to remember that this book is from the 1940s and some of the ideas are outdated. Unlike the RR, this is not so much a book written in logical order. For example, the book has 17 different methods to palm a card which no one would realistically learn. People will palm cards using one method normally and then use those which pleased them from the book but certainly not 17 different methods. Presentation is so much more important than skill and this book risks transforming the heavy reader into a card nerd more focused on the mechanics than presentation skills. To cut to the chase, read through all of the sleights, find which method for each sleigh works for you and LEARN and Practice it. Do not try to learn and perfect everything, it just won't happen.

The tricks in the book are great as is the adivce on presentation
