Thanks for the link ... looks like it might be worth checking out . The three books your on about are Jennings 67 Jennings takes it easy and Jennings takes it hard . I have heard Jenning's takes it easy is out this year but what I can find out it has been coming out every year for about ten years now .. hopefully this year it will

Thanks for the links . I seen it on abebooks and that's why I was thinking about getting it . but I couldn't really find any reviews on the book. So I was hoping that some one here that had the book could give me their views on it

I have the Cardwright. The material isn't as strong as The Classic Magic of Larry Jennings. And personally, I wouldn't pay $125 for it. Abe Books' prices tend to be on the high side. If it's still available, you may want to get Up in Smoke, which was written by Bill Goodwin.

Exactly how the material was selected for The Cardwright is a mystery to me. It's an underwhelming book, and it doesn't help that things are often incorrectly described, or described without the important details.

If you are a fan of Larry Jennings, you need to own the book. But I think you can get it for $50 if you keep looking. Some of the mis-described material will be fixed in my upcoming books.

When will that be Richard? This year perhaps?

Thanks for the reply guys . I think I will leave this book for now . Smoke and mirrors looks like is still in shops for around £20 so I think I will check that out and wait for the new book to come out . I would also like to know if the book is planned to come out this year

Hey Sublime80, Sorry I didn't see this post sooner. Haven't been on here for a while.

I started a trick-by-trick review of "The Cardwright." Generally, I would agree with Mr. Kaufman (who the heck wouldn't?!) that the book is "underwhelming." My review has details on the first third of the tricks. Hope it helps in some way:

1/20 for Jenning's favorite ? Come on .. 2 years ago, that same trick created the buzz under the name 'Numero Uno' (H.Lorrayne) and people died for getting the explanation.

The method presented here is excellent, and I think you have to see it live to appreciate the impact. It is definetly a reputation maker. Note that M.Ammar put it on a Easy to Master DVD, and you can see the performance on youtube.

"Mr. Jennings Takes It Easy" will be published later this year. Text is all clean and synched with the photos.

Looks like I will have to dig out this one again and look the „favorite“ up.
