I just did a search through the Café archives and found very few comments about this book.

I'm just curious if purchasers felt they got their money's worth from it.

As a big fan of Harry Lorayne I guess I'm biased but I think the book is worth every penny.

I'm no good at writing reviews but the material is typical Lorayne and the book has many, many gems.

I'm very happy with it. It's not "Close-Up Card Magic," but it's in my Top 5 Lorayne books.

The ad says $B!H(BWhat a M-E-S (Memory, Estimation, Sleight of hand) is a complete manuscript that I had intended to sell separately for $100.00. It's a killer. It's included in Personal Collection!$B!I(B

I am interested in memorized deck effects. Dose this have anyting to do with a Mem deck?

If it has nothing to do with Mem deck, what on the earth is M-E-S?
I have no idea on that.

Jay elf: I know it's too late to answer your question, but M-E-S stands for Memory-Estimation-Sleight of hand, and it's NOT a memorized-deck routine. I've NEVER taught a memorized deck routine, because I don't USE memorized-deck routines, because I NEVER USE MY OWN DECK. Got it? Question: You know the best way to get "an idea" or to answer your "what on earth" - BUY THE BOOK! HARRY LORAYNE.

Thankfully it's on PDF format now so anyone can get their hands on it. Been wanting this puppy for years. Greig,(one very happy magi). Can purchase it direct from Mr Lorayne or the Magical Research Centre.

Whether you get this as a PDF or are lucky enough to score a physical copy - physical copies are expensive - the book is worth every penny either way; VERY highly recommended.
