The best book of card magic for those starting out or for those who do not want to become the next card technician. Written in 1949, I have come back to this book time and time again. Written as a course in card magic the book teaches a slight and the provides EXCELLENT tricks to use with the slight. The entire book is worth the trick Design for Laughter which after leaving magic is the only one I remember and show.......outstanding...........get this and you will have a good solid start.

Look at your book shelf. When you get there, if you don’t see this book on your shelf you are no card magician. Period. This book is near perfect, even by today’s standards. It’s not as old school as The Expert at the Card Table, but yet it’s not as new school (or as expensive) as Card College. This is a book I go back to time after time, and I always pick up something new.

My favorite thing to do is to find a routine, maybe a self worker, learn it, then absolutely kill my magic buddies with it. They flip out, asking where I learned this ‘new thing’ and I tell them, “Oh it’s in this old book” and they all wonder what deep underground manuscript I have that was passed down from Vernon to me. If I really want to make them hurt, I tell them the truth, and say, “It’s in Royal Road.” Then everyone reacts again. The fact that I fooled them with a trick from a book they’ve all read gives me so much satisfaction.

My hope is that I’ve inspired them to go back... [Read More]

An excellent book......a true-must have for any card worker. There're a few places where the authors word things in a slightly, ummmm........well, cocky sorta-way.......but heck.....they were good at their art!

The illustrations could've been tightened up in a few places (even for its time).....but is still a necessity for any cardician.
