You have made a very sound purchase. Mysterious, Pocket Interchange, and Seattle Switch are all worth the price of the book.

I do Pocket Interchange as much as any card effect that I know and it ALWAYS gets gasps from EVRYONE who sees it. You are going to love the book.

Some of the gambling routines are challenging, but overall the straight magic effects are simple and fairly easy to perform. Hope this helps.

Thanks Clark, sometimes I just take a chance on a book, you never know what you will find, and this was one of those books, so I will look out for those routines

Mysterious is a great combination of Dr. Daley's Last Trick, Elmsley's Between Your Palms, and Brother Hamman's Signed Card and easy to do. I love variations of tricks where the face down mystery card transforms into the spectator's selection.

"Mysterious" is worth the price of the book alone.

Just so you know, Pocket Interchange is not in MO, but another beautiful routine called Multiplex Reset, which while similar to Pocket Interchange, is not the same routine. You have to wear a jacket for Multiplex Reset.
Mysterious is fantastic and 'Jacks Backs's is another great routine which has gone under the radar of many.

I am not a big fun of mysterious as I prefer to perform those effects separately. The book is nevertheless a gem and highly recommended. Personally, the Seattle Switch is the one I would pick as my favorite one in the book.

I recently saw the most beautiful justification for this sequence performed by Tdotmagic (a member of the Café). If you're curious feel free to ask him if he'll share!

Eric Lewis published a book by the same title around 70 years ago. I thought yall were talking about that one. Interesting how things don't change all that much.
...Your professional woodworking and "tender" loving care in the products you make, make the wait worthwhile. Thanks for all you do...
