Dear All,

FIVE hours ago, something exciting happened! The doorbell rang, and my postman handed me BOF 3! I have been LOST in it since then. I've ignored the phone...let my coffee get cold and forgotton to collect my wife from a meeting! How absorbed is that!

It's TOO EARLY to make detailed comment, but - as with all of Harry Lorayne's writing and publishing - it is TOP NOTCH! As a publisher and author myself, I know how HARD he must have worked!

I have 4 contributions myself, but those aside - the list of contributors is exciting. The first effect I tried was/is a killer (no, I won't tell you which one)...as was the second!

Now, I'm off to read and TRY the rest. Off to my local Café...can't wait.

WELL DONE, Harry! And - THANKS!

Paul Gordon

If yours made it to the UK today, maybe I'll get lucky and receive mine in Seattle today. I can't wait to dive into this!

Dear Magiguy,

Maybe Harry sent to contributors first? Not sure, but I seem to be one of the first to receive a copy - and I'm abroad! Paul

Paul is being harrys friend so that is why harry is giving him one. I like Paul and his magic and I like harry too as well.

If you like harrys books also get pauls, especially nocturnal creatures and card magic companions, they are good too. Paul is also having a trick called the dogs ******** which is makings me laugh.
Think not what magic can do for you, but what you can do for magic.

Thanks, Juan for the kind words! The Dog's BX had them in STITCHES (laughing) at The Blackpool Convention last week! It's RUDE but VERY funny!

Having now read ALL the book, I can tell you it is - as Harry might say - a goodie! It really is jam-packed with strong tricks; all well written. I, obviously, will be going back to it time after time. It's a book to treasure. I'm not going to pick out any favourites as that's simple personal choice. My advice - buy a copy NOW! Another WINNER from Harry Lorayne!

For the record - all the out-of-U.S.A. orders went out first. Hundreds of U.S.A. orders were picked up by the Post Office on Feb. 26th. Reason? Packages that are picked up must be already stamped. I could do that with the U.S.A. packages because the single-book orders all take the same postage. Not so with out-of-U.S.A. Different postages for different parts of the world, and too many stamps to stick on them. So - had to have a couple of assistants "schlep" those to the Post Office physically, just to make space here. Nitty-gritty - out-of-U.S.A. packages went out a few days before the U.S.A. packages. And, important, it takes longer for a package to reach the west coast from New York City than it does for an airmail package to reach England, Australia, etc. So, hope I've cleared that up. And for the U.S.A. folks - thanks for your patience, hope you find the wait worthwile. Those who haven't ordered yet, the sooner you do, the sooner you'll get the book. Best - HARRY LORAYNE.

Hi Hairy, I am now being retired so I am not any more a 'worker' so I am not looking there for your book. Ha ha.

I am looking in 'books' because it is a book.

If you put it in workers I might not be seeing it.

Then you might be thinking I am not your friend so will I be being in your next book "Worst of friends" Ha ha.

Regards from Spain

Juan

"Workers" is for discussion of particular sleight of hand tricks. This thread is for reviews of books, lecture notes and e-files, so people who are interested in hearing reviews of the book will come here.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

So how is the material in this book, does anything in particular stand out?

After a quick glance through the book, as I just got mine yesterday, try the first trick in the book: Harry's "Guess Quotient" (p. 19).

And try out Peter Duffie's "Cal-Q-Lator" (p. 297) which is a very clever Lie Detector trick of the variety where the lie detector keeps checking the spectator's veracity. In setting it up, you can change the suit order if you like, and you can change the suit (or suits) that have the picture cards, and you can cut as often as you like at the beginning.
