Hi,

Really thanks and appreciate your advice and opinions, guys! Smile

Frankly speaking, how long do you all take to master the Hollingworth's effects in this book?

How many effects that really interest you all in this book?

Thanks!

Best Wishes,
Andrew

Andrew, those a relative questions....no one can concretely answer those. if you are into tough misdirection and technically demanding material then buy the book. Heck, you may find it easy!?! I love the book. It is great readings. I only use two things from it though. To me, that made it worth the purchase.

I only really use 2. waving the aces(kings) and the torn and restore effect he has. It is very visual.

On which episode of Mondo Magic was the Voodoo effect? Also a brief description would be appreciated so I can view the correct effect. Thanks.

This is my favorite book of all time. I think everything in the book is easy to follow, but performing it is a different story. It takes work (and guts) to pull off some of the tricks, but there are some really practical routines in it. I think every trick in the book is good and is well worth the purchase.

I learnt the reformation from this book and did not find it that hard to understand.
the voodoo trick was on the New Orleans Mondo magic,
sucks its out there I would guess half the people that have the book don't even know of this effect Smile

Hi folks,

I saw someone performed his effects in this book, there are Waving the Aces, Oil and Water and "The Reformation", frankly speaking, these 3 effects, which one are the most of your favourites?

I heard many people said that the reformation is the most difficult to perform this effect in this book.

What do you all think guys??? Smile

Anyway, thanks and I am appreciate your reply.

Best Wishes,
Andrew Loh

Why does it matter??? What are YOUR favorites? What type of routines fit well with YOU and what do YOUR audiences like to see. These are questions you should be posing to yourself not to strangers on a magic forum. Get the book.

Guy mentions that the slight to do Waving the Aces is fairly simple to learn but it took me over 3 months of solid practice to get it right. It was worth it though Smile

Andrew,

It's a great book, probably my favorite, but be warned a most of it is very advanced.

There is a good Voodoo card trick in the preface which is easy, but the rest will take a LOT of practice.

Reformation and Waving the Aces are the 2 effects he performed on Worlds Greatest Magic.

Hi folks,

If I am not mistaken, Guy only has authored 1 thick book only which is Drawing Room Deceptions only, right?

How about his "Quartet" booklet, do you have any opinion regarding this booklet?

Thanks! Smile

Quartet is really just a booklet, 36 pages I think. It has 10 tricks all using a gaffed card (included).

Some neat effects, a different version of Waving the Aces is possible with this, plus kicker endings for Twisting the Aces and Dr Daleys Last trick.
