Just wondering-- does this book refer to Feints and Temps for explanation of moves (such that I'd need to buy that book as well), or does Secrets Of An Escamoteur stand on its own?

thanks,

Secrets of an Escamouteur does indeed stand on it's own ... and very well so I might add.
But if you have the chance to get a copy of Feints and Temps of Harry Reiser, the book its OOP, by all means do so, it's a fantastic book.

I don't think "Feints and Temps of Harry Reiser" is OOP. It is currently available on the publishers web site and I just picked up a copy a couple of weeks ago at a local magic shop.

Sorry, my bad.

Why is the book called Secrets of an Escamoteur? Harry Riser is not even from Alaska. :)

Alright, I have to ask an honest question: Has anyone that has bought this book actually taken the time to learn (and test on an audience) the linking ring routine taught in this book?

I'm not judging the quality of the book, I'm just inquiring if anyone has actually taken the time to learn it.
