Mine as well. Someone mentioned earlier that this book could be the publishing event of the year [in magic]. I couldn't agree more!! L&L is usually VERY good with shipping so I am hoping by Saturday to be lost in this - just in time for the end of the torture known as summer session grad school Smile

Ahimsa,
Vlad

Not sure what answer I expect but...I have Al's 4 DVD set. Is there a lot of updated or new material here or mostly the pleasure of having it in print? Thanks

Did you read the Table of Contents in the book's description?

Just think Leo, you could have bought two DVDs with maybe 6 or 7 tricks for the same price. Enjoy!

I love his honesty in the book. Page 194 is a perfect example.

This is one of the best magic books on close-up sleight of hand magic I've ever read. This should be getting a lot more attention than it is. Back to practicing...

I opened this yesterday and it has been a while since I have encountered a book that shakes me out of my comfort zone. This book should be required reading for anyone desiring to learn magic. Mr. Schneider's essays alone are worth the price of this book. As I was glossing it, I felt the same sense of thought provoking exploration by the author with his reader as I have felt with the classics of magic - most recently Wesley James's Enchantments.

I predict that the Schneider book will stand as essential reading alongside works by Vernon, Marlo, Lorayne, Slydini, Ramsay, Ortiz, Hilliard, Hugard, Fitzkee, Wonder, etc.

2011 is shaping up to be a GREAT year for magic and I know the dollar is stretched farther than the elastic of your corpulent aunt's bloomers, but, you really owe it to yourself to forego the 5 trick DVDs and INVEST in this landmark volume.

Be warned that this is not a quick read book; Mr. Schneider will challenge you.

Ahimsa,
Vlad

Hi bnburns,

Unless you specify otherwise L&L ships via USPS media mail (uggghhh). Still, you are NOT that far from Tahoma, CA. You should give them a call. Mine took 8 days from Tahoma to NW Ohio.

Just received my copy. A great, great book! Almost didn't buy it. I am glad that I changed my mind on this one.

Nicely laid out; nice sized font (for these older, tired eyes Smile ) and plenty of photos. The effects are tried-and-true, and all are well described. This should be a strong candidate for book of the year.

Got my copy today and I was amazed of the sheer size of it.
Summer is saved thanks to this one and the Berglas book.

Vlad,

In what way(s)? Would you elaborate?
