Has anyone heard about this? "Sleights and Insights" is the title, and is:

John Carney’s first major work in 10 years.

Sleights and Insights is full of original material for Close Up and Stage.

More than a just book of tricks, Sleights and Insights is about the process of creating, refining, and contributing to our own magic. More than a book of academic “theory,” it provides concrete examples of how we can design our routines more thoughtfully, improve our technique, and make our magic more natural looking and deceptive.

Sleight and Insights contains startling visual magic with cards for close up as well as stage, elegantly designed coin magic, impromptu cups and balls, torn and restored innovations, puppets and photographs that catch selected cards from mid air, variations with a vanishing birdcage, and a haunted doll house where objects come to life, concluding with the appearance of a ghostly apparition.

Sleight and Insights offers a fresh perspective, that will make you look at all your magic with new eyes.

Well, this would be a good advertisement if you explained where to preorder this book. A clue, maybe?

Carney's selling it himself.see magazine ads for more info...
God's grace rocks! It makes a good cups and balls routine look pretty boring in comparison.

Agreed. I'm not 'advertising' this book. Just curious if anyone has heard of it and knows anything more about the contents than what is in the blurb. Often the creators themselves pop in here, and post some information. I'm a book buyer, and interested, is all.

It's Carney. It's his first book in ten years. That's all I need to know to buy it!

You can only preorder the book from John Carney at his website Carneymagic.com. Sign up for his mailing list and I'm sure he will be notifying everyone in December.

No table of contents is available, but wow, the cover is really beautiful ! It's one of the best aspects of physical books publication.
