If there was ever a magic book that everyone should read, this is it. Bruce Elliott’s writing style is very readable, and his choice of material is excellent. He teaches real classics of magic, such as the Egg Bag, the Misers Dream, the Ambitious Card, a Four Ace Routine, and of course, the Cups and Balls. Additionally, the text is sprinkled with words of wisdom and performance tips. Highly recommended by David Roth, Conjuring Arts Research Center’s Master in Residence.
