Joshua Jay is a great performer, having grown up with card magic which plays a major role in his life. Study his DNA and you will probably find hearts and spades... One can safely rely on a book by this author to be knowledgeable and conveyed with enthusiasm. That said, I have a quibble. The book's cover style hints that it might favour a younger readership, but it would have been helpful if the product description had said it was a children's book. The simplicity and the somewhat gushy writing style will act as a great magic primer for ages 7 to maybe 12 years old, after which teenagers and older will need stronger meat. In summary; a good book, offering a mix of quite basic magic and card manipulation skills, (albeit with one or two card routines that will need practise), but really only suitable for pre-teens.

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

Great present for 7 and 11-year-old grandsons who love doing card tricks.
It really encourages them to read and try out the tricks - entertain their families and themselves.
Very educational and fun.

The book is very easy to follow for an 11 year old budding card trickster.

The CD makes it even easier to understand

This is perfect for teenagers that have mastered the basics and understand how mathematical tricks work. The photos really help too.
