I was wondering if anyone who has read this book can answer a question. Does the information/teaching in this book add anything not covered or provided in the Card College series? From what I have read, the new Jennings book provides additional techniques that enhance well-known "easy" sleights; e.g., double undercut, double turnover, and the like. No palms or passes. I know we can always improve our basic card handling, but is this book worth not only the $100, but the time invested in studying it?

Your thoughts are appreciated.

In my view it's an amazing resource.
I have the card college series and this book is definitely a worthwhile addition.
I think it's Richard Kaufman's best work ever.
I hope that helps
Cheers

It does help, thanks. I'm currently waiting for it but I was concerned that studying Mr. Jennings would be like going in reverse. I would not want to invest time if it were simply repetitive of Card College.

I also am interested to hear everyone's thoughts about this book. The ad copy makes it sound like a nice mix, but I am interested to hear whether people find tremendous value out of it or if it would complement/compete with past Jennings publications.

I would say it complements the classic magic of Larry Jennings , which I also have.
However if you want a detailed review ?
Micheal Close does an in-depth review in one his month newsletters, which are available for free on his site.
Best wishes
