Good day! I wanted your opinions of the best books on memorized decks that are applicable to any stack. I currently use the Tamariz stack and don’t intend to learn another stack in the near future. My library currently contains “Mnemonica” and “In Order to Amaze”. Any suggestions will be appreciated! If you have other books specifically for the Tamariz stack, I’d be open to those as well.

Thank you!

Scams & Fantasies with Cards and Lessons in card mastery by Darwin Ortiz. You can find wonderful memdecks effects in these books.

All the Simon Aronson books, especially Simply Simon. While there are some stack dependent items, for the most part, the memdeck items can be performed with any memdeck, and they are very strong effects. Also Greg Chapman's books have some advanced work. And I understand something new is on the horizon...

I absolutely second that. Actually, "Simply Simon" is one of the best books ever written. IMHO, so far unbeatable. Jan

Unfortunately it’ll be years till one will have access to a comprehensive memdeck book.

Fortunately memdeck work is still relatively sparse that the major works are still not too too pricy.

Give it twenty years, or add your own discoveries to the published work and forums.

Aronson set the stage for fusing mathematical ideas with stack work. I would start there if bored with the Tamariz opinion that card divination is the most versatile and impactful aspect.

My favourite is Pit Hartling's In Order to Amaze.

A few more:
The Buena Vista Shuffle Club by Matt Baker - stack independent. Really like this book.
Woody Aragon’s Memorandum (his own stack) but can apply to other stacks.
