Sorry to repeat myself, but...

Great book! Medium skill level, exceptionally creative thinking. Well worth the small investment, and currently on sale (25% off with free shipping if you order from Kaufman by January 31st).

Salby,
PM me if you have any specific questions. This and 5X5 are two exceptional books. Both have a variety of material. 5x5 has a bit more on cards than this one but, again, I recommend both.

One big difference between New Magic of Japan and 5x5 Japan is the material. Several of the effects in New Magic of Japan are for Parlor and Stage. Why most of the material in 5x5 Japan is more for close-up venues.

I liked 5x5 Japan better for that reason.

They're both good books.

Salby, perform a search on YouTUBE for username "almanacia" to see some highlighted routines from both books. The performer does an AWESOME job in presenting them. I was on the fence in purchasing these books until I found almanacia's videos. You wont be drawn to every single routine presented, but you will be inspired and you will not be disappointed with your purchase!

Regards,

Barrett James

The same guy made a YouTube video that influenced me to buy 'By Forces Unseen' as well.
