I'm ever the optimist. Although John Bannon has written some great books, I'll say that his best book will be released at some time in the future.

Barry, I second that . . . the question is when will the future turns into today?

I hope that John reads this and speeds up the work . . .

Kenno, is that "Call of the Wild"? If so, it's sold as an individual packet trick. Currently my favorite version of Wild Card.

I guess my taste differs from so many...IMO DMF was ok....i got so much more material out of Smoke and Mirrors and Impossibilia. If I had to pick one, it would be Smoke and Mirrors.

Unfortunately, I have my vote on DMF, like many other said, Smoke and Mirrors has sentimental attachment, for me, DMF is my first Bannon's book that I bought.

After that, I bought back Smoke and Mirrors and found out Timely Departure is such a great routine.

Again, sentimental attachment, my vote to DMF, also, S&M have coin routines that I do not perform so, card magic rules in my case.
Most memorable moment - with Maestro Juan Tamariz & Consuelo Lorgia in FISM Busan 2018.

I can't vote since I only have DMF, but I love it. I religiously perform the routines in DMF all the time, especially Bullet Train, Secrets and Mysteries of 4 Aces and Degree of Freedom, and I could always get great reactions with these. I've ordered Smoke & Mirrors, but like what Steven said, I will probably still prefer DMF after all due to sentimental attachment.

I've only just received Dear Mr. Fantasy, so I'm still working through that, but I like both Impossibilia and Smoke and Mirrors equally. For card work, the latter certainly takes the cake, but I love the chop cup routine and some of the cups and balls moves in Impossibilia. What sold me on Bannon though was the Twighlight Zone Assembly - I'm surprised more people haven't mentioned it. I absolutely fell in love with the patter.

Deep astonishment. Let it breathe.

I have DMF, Imp. and S & M. I prefer the variety of effects from S&M but I enjoy the style of DMF and his thoughts on presentation. I cannot WAIT for Cardzilla.
