Roberto Giobbi's newest survey of sleightless card magic, CARD COLLEGE LIGHER, gives the famous Giobbi treatment to 21 baffling card tricks by some of the craft’s greatest masters, including Vernon, Annemann, Leech, Maven, Fulves, Hummer, Vollmer and Krenzel. These tricks do not require sleights, but they all show the cunning perspective of a professional performer, guaranteeing astonishing and entertaining results. Following in the footsteps of his CARD COLLEGE LIGHT, Roberto Giobbi teaches the secrets of professional-caliber card magic, providing insights into the presentation, psychology and routining that make these simple tricks into seeming miracles. He gives the reader all the tools necessary for a professional-quality performance.

Giobbi also explains how these tricks can be arranged into highly effective and entertaining routines. The reader will learn the secrets of expert organization and combination that make good tricks even more baffling. These lessons serve both the beginner and the advanced card-magician who wish to do magic that allows the audience to stare relentlessly at the fingers without discovering a thing.

I have the first book, many "gold effects" inside the pages of Mr Giobbis excellent magic production. Book 2 is probably of the same caliber.

Recently iI fooled a math teacher (university level) with one of the effects from Card College Light.
It was an inexplicable experience for the academic guy. And, its selfworking. Fun.

I have the new card college lighter book.
and there are a number of effects that are very good. some are versions of effects that can be found in other books of self workers but some are new and novel
for experienced magicians there are a few that you might learn and use for those impromptu situations, novices will probably use more from the book.
Im not ging to review every routine in the book but from memory

There are 2-3 four ace productions, (1 is very nice)
These are sometimes combined with a "find a card" or "triumph"
There are at least 2 effects that are 'mentalism' effects that essentially discover the total number of a group of cards taken from the deck and hidden
There are a couple of poker deal effects.
There are a couple of Gag effects both based on old prinicples and topological card effect that reveals 4 kings.

Overall I would say that this is a useful book from which to learn a few good quick card effects but they not earth shattering in terms of methodology. The author provides plenty of tips as to how to get the most from them presentationally
