I have not finished reading all of the notes in this booklet (large 8X10 inch size) of 9 (nine) effects from the fertile if not demented mind of Bob Solari.

Of the 5 I have become familiar with, 3 of these are EACH worth the price of the book alone!

My top 3 picks thus far?:

1. Ultra Match
2. Kissed
3. Premonition

Also, take special note of Writers Cramp (a very visual bending bic pen routine)and Simones Secret Weapon.

Here is a review of "Ultra Match" (my absolute number 1 favorite so far):

a preditcion envelope is placed on the table. Envolope has been sealed with a large paper clip. you explain that the envelope contains 3 prediction cards. Showing a deck of cards, you allow the spectators to thoroughly mix the cards and then to select any 3 cards. NO FORCE IS USED! When the envelope is opened, each of the 3 cards matches the 3 spectator selected cards.

This is soooo easy to do and a real fooler. Typical Solari simplicity. You wont regret this purchase. $10 postpaid from

I seem to remember a book being produced by a magician a while ago with the same title as this one, I cant for the life of me remember who the author was!

It was Martin Daniels, Paul's son and consisted of bar stunts.

It was my pleasure to have met Mr. Bob Solari not too long ago and receive a copy of his Cunning Stunts Lecture Notes. Most of the material is easy, practical, and if presented well, will certainly entertain laypeople. However, upon seeing Solari demonstrate the effect entitled "Simone's Secret Weapon" in his lecture notes I immediately recognized it as an effect that could be found within the children's magic book, "Magic For Kids" by Fay Presto under the effect name, 'Flat Top, Round Top' on pages 28 - 29.

After his lecture, I mentioned that I had an idea as to where this principle that he called 'Simone's Secret Weapon' could be found although the name of the book escaped me at the time. Nevertheless, I have sent an email to Mr. Solari with the appropriate information as to where the principle employed in 'Simone's Secret Weapon' could be found in existing text.

In that email, I also offered my personal variation of 'Simone's Secret Weapon' in which I have been performing for a number of years now to great success. If anyone is interested in a more thorough review of Bob Solari's Cunning Stunts Lecture Notes or if you are interested in my variation of 'Simone's Secret Weapon' please feel free to contact me anytime.

I got your joke Robertson. It was the first thing that came to my mind when I first saw the title. Of course I have a bad case of lysdexia Smile.

What's the difference between a circus and a chorus line? The first is an array of cunning stunts, whereas...well, umm...yeah.

On a more serious note, I just ordered these from Bob. Looking forward to receiving them.
