I just recently bought this book, but like kaufmans publications no effects are listed at all. I usually like to look at an effect and see if it is even worth the time of going through and learning it. I see that a lot of the material is cards, which is ok, but there are some neat coin things also. Since this is the card forum, what should I learn from this book? If you could put page number that would be great.


Thanks,
Ben
Check out my new effect "As Good As It Gets" a gimmickles pencil or pen through bill effect. It closely mimmicks the slow motion phase of "Misled." About "As Good AS It Gets" for no gimmicks and everything being borrowed.

There are some great sleights in here. In my opinion, the best being his double lift. For effects, I like his collector's, Slow Motion Aces, All Backs with Selection, Regal Royal Flush and others, but I don't have the book in front of me.

Thanks guys for the info. I just learned silver quick which is his coins across and it is excellent. I will look through the other tricks tonight.

I do like his Oil and Water (I think it's called Oil and Vinegar) and Quadraconvincing Triumph is ok, eventhough it has too many shuffles to be my favorite version of triumph. Anything over one shuffle in a triumph routine is unneccesary in my opinion. Rollover Aces is good, but once again, requires a lot of shuffles. I haven't put in the time to learn Rollover Aces sufficiently yet, so it's really easy for me to say that there are too many shuffles. I imagine once someone puts in the effort required to perfect the effect, they would have to say that the shuffling is worth it!!!

Ben, that's really alot to ask of folks. What may work for some might not work for you. Given the variety in that tome perhaps you could take some time and try EVERYHING in the book and ask for preferences after.
...to all the coins I've dropped here
