Expert at the Card Table,
This review is from: The Expert at the Card Table: Classic Treatise on Card Manipulation (Dover Magic Books) (Paperback)
this is a very good book for learning all the basics, and even later on much more complex sleights ect.
i do feel however that the lack of pictures can sometimes make it very difficult to work out what he is saying.
in the first couple of chapters there were two moves that i couldn't do as i didnt understand then, and they may only have one picture which didn't show the bit i was confused about.
although sometimes the picture was the confusing bit and it allowed to learn the move.
this book is good, but can be very confusing at times, and in turn quite frustrating.
i was able to get a film called 'weapons of the card shark'. which has most if not all of the moves in it, but in a video form which is much easier to understand.
