This small booklet/lecture notes is a collection of the work by David Gabbay. This is another half good/half bad booklet for me.

For starters, the writing is difficult to read. Not just because of the typos, but because of the odd ‘jokes’ and sentence structure. Take the third sentence in the booklet, “The TacsMan” (name of the effect) is a fun little ditty.” Then later he says, “By blending methods, it seems to create a greater degree of fooling.” This kind of writing takes away from the clarity of these effects, and makes this a difficult read.

Window to the Soul(1.5 stars)

Instant stooge, plus the wrong angle can tip more than just your stooge as to what's going one equals awkward handling and less than practical effect.

Fair & Square(4 stars)
