Just saw that this book is out again from Hermetic Press, it has been OOP, I'm not sure, but I think that is the case.
For you who think this name rings a bell, but can't place it, I can tell you he was one of the main contributors to Bobo's New Modern Coin Magic.
And for those of you who don't own KORT: The Magic of Milt Kort, don't waste your time to pass this opportunity to buy this fantastic book. It's one of my favorites, and I'm sure it's going to be one of yours.
The book is divided into three major chapters; cards, coins, and assorted tricks.
Written by Stephen Minch (who was a good fried of Milton), published by Hermetic Press, illustrated by Sandy Kort, hardbound and runs for 363 pages.
A book well worth your time.
Highly recommended.

I agree, this book is full of great magic. It serves as a fantastic index of the late Milt Kort's creative magic and an inspiring reminder of his legacy.
Thought: Why does man kill? He kills for food. And not only food: frequently there must be a beverage.

Not only are the effects killers (and often fun-these are the kind you inwardly gloat over) but his anecdotes are priceless. The time he got Bobo by dropping a half dollar just as Bobo sleeved one and made Bobo think he had missed the sleeve was priceless.

Any magician who was also a Pharmacist is okay by me.

Great book,
I really like the material in here, and the annecdotes are very interesting and often funny.
One of the things it has helped me with the most is my coin magic. I used to hate Bobo, and didn't see much of interest in there. Now when looking for a new coin routine I can just check out one of the numerous tricks by Milt, and I am bound to have something of great performance value.

This is an awesome book. I do his copper/silver transposition all the time.
