This book teaches card tricks, and it assumes the reader is a beginner. It starts with basic controls, then moves on to forces, false shuffles, palming, changes, peeks, and flourishes. Next comes a section on card tricks not requiring sleight of hand, so you can start doing magic while you’re learning the more difficult material. This book was written by the same man who wrote Modern Magic, one of the most popular magic books ever written, Professor Hoffman, so you know the descriptions are excellent.
