Make sure you have a look at his Cups & Balls routine, it is very good and also different (especially the presentation!).

I will second Chop 2, and Play it Straight Triumph.

I will add some more later, as I am not home right now and I do not want to inadvertadly give you names of routines that are in "Smoke & Mirror"!

-Two Ahead Is Better Than One- Brilliant!
-Little TT&A- great in the hands lose the aces and find them routine.
-Traveling Jacks Sideshow Assembly- off the beaten path ace assembly, but very commercial.

This is useful information to me, as well, so I'd like to thank people for the recommendations. I recently got Impossibilia after really devouring Smoke & Mirrors (from which my favorite effect is "Timely Departure").

Check out "Heart Of The City" in Smoke & Mirrors...I recommend the book to anyone who liked Impossibilia.

The Birnman Revelation is an instantaneous production of the four aces. It is a real stunner and gives the impression of a real pro.

Everything Jack Birman did was first-class. I perform it the way Jack actually did it, which is different from the published version.

Fayaad,

Magicmaven,

You've had a couple of days to look it over. Did you find one to your liking? Of the recommendations, which one was the best, in your opinion?

Good point.. I recommend getting Ammar's 24 volume dvd set instead.
