Having a book that goes into a much greater detail about the tricks you enjoyed on a DVD is a very fun idea.

Richard divides the chapters in to two basic parts. A history of the effect and his analysis of his handling. I found the chapters very fun to read. They are thoughtful and if you are interested in adding one of these effects to your show, he has given you much more (than what was on the DVD) to consider. This is an excellent teaching tool for anyone studying the material.

Side note: I would not purchase this book without the DVD. Get the DVD first and if you find the material engaging and interesting then purchase the book.

Some of his analysis is directly related to what happened with the audience on the DVD. You get to hear what he was thinking with the various audience members that came up to help in the show. Other analysis is about his thinking in performing and blocking the trick.

At the end of the book he gives you additional material not associated with the DVD. One in particular was very fun (for me) It is a simple but devastatingly surprising card trick.

Easily worth the 30 clams.
