I've heard from a few people (including Michael Vincent) that this book is a great book. Would anybody here recommend it? Thinking about making a purchase.

I have to ask: is the author the same Cy Endfield as the film director?
For a supernatural chiller mixing magic (prestidigitation, legerdemain) with Magic (occultism, mysticism), check out my novel MAGIC: AN OCCULT THRILLER at http://www.amazon.com/Magic-Occult-Thriller-Reed-Hall/dp/1453874836

TRICKS, somewhat like music, only exist while they are being PERFORMED.
An EFFECT cannot be BOUGHT either. An EFFECT is what the spectator perceives.

Michael Vincent considers him (along with Alan Alan) one of his mentors...

Well worth the price, but not the easiest material to learn.

Get it! I bought the book as a youngster. I learned and relearned every sleight in the book. Still using the overhand false shuffle. It teaches some basic cuts, counts, shuffles, double lifts etc. And yes there are some very very fine tricks in the book. I spend endless days and nights learning Two to Divine, Conjure Bones, The Escape of the Musketeers and many many others. What the heck, I learned them all. It gave me the foundation of everything I do in card magic these days. And please don't forget Aces for Connoisseurs, a very artistic ace assembly. It was my entry for joining my first magic club.
Did I already tell you I just love this book!?
