Hi everyone,

I need your help!

Can those of you who have any of these 3 books by Allan Ackerman:
- THE ESOTERIST,
- HERE'S MY CARD,
- LAS VEGAS KARDMA
Please give me a review and also mention the strong and weak (if any) points. Do not only say if they are good or bad, please explain why they are good or bad in your opinion.

Thanks in advance! :-) :-)

I have all three. They are all excellent. Allan has a gift for knowing strong effects and how to routine them so that they play even stronger. The student who carefully studies the construction of his routines (even if the student doesn't perform those routines) will come away with concepts not easily gleaned from most magic books. Allan is one of the most overlooked writers in our art. I feel that these books make up something of a post-graduate course in routine construction and entertaining performance of card magic.

I have some of Allans videos from A1 Multimedia and he is very good as a card expert. But where can I find these books to the best prize?
