Just curious, does the video show the complete contents of the book?

Thanks

Actually the video doesn't show everything that is in the book.

The "Core" three phase ace transposition routine with the visual changes is taught in the first section of the book and then there are further sections that describe advanced handlings, finesses, and alternate endings that are "not" shown on the video trailer.

I’m really proud of this project guys. Jamie Masterson is not just a top card man, but an incredible writer and illustrator to boot! Jamie did an excellent job of capturing the basic routine as I do it, as well as describing variations, subtleties, mis-shows, advanced changes, etc.; that culminate in not only capturing the Spirit of a Visual Daley Aces, but a comprehensive course in advanced packet technique as well.

I hope you enjoy performing it as much as I do!

Here are some more details on the content of the book:

Skill level is somewhat subjective but I'd say that the main routine requires Intermediate Level card handling skills (5/10) and this includes the Alternate Endings section. There is additional material in the book that I would say is more advanced (8/10) like some of the fingertip visual changes that you see on the video trailer. Keep in mind that you don't need to be able to do the fingertip changes taught in the advanced section to use the main routine.

The book is set-up such that it teaches alternate handlings options and sequences that are interchangeable within the body of the main routine based on a person's skill level. This allows the student to pick and choose and customize his/her own routine based on what feels most comfortable.

The Shadow & Shake routine has three phases:

Phase 1-The black aces are placed under the red aces and appear back on top
Phase 2 -The black aces visually change one at a time into the red aces
Phase 3 -The red aces change places with the black aces under a spectators hand

There is also a lot more stuff taught in the book in subsequent sections:
+ Advanced handling options
+ Additional Climax Endings
+ psychology points and pro tips for performance

Profusely illustrated and taught with detailed descriptions. Edited by Stephen Hobbs Crediting References by William Goodwin.

Many that have received Shadow & Shake have told me that they are impressed with the quality of the production.

Hope that provides enough information for those interested in the book.


Best Wishes,
Jamie Masterson

Is this book also available in PDF ? Shipping to the Netherlands will take too long. I already sent this question to both Jamie and Jack but did not get any reaction.
I guess the answer is no.
