You should see him in action!

This young man is amazing. I booked him for an event I planned at a science center several years ago and his talent is incredible. Then, after all his meticulous work, he took a leaf blower and destoyed his creation only to let the children collect all the cards!

Awesome Book!

I purchased this book for my daughter. She had a school assignment to build a weight bearing structure out of playing cards. She got some good ideas by reading stacking the Deck.

Method works even for clumsy hands

What I found amazing about this book is that within the first few pages, you will learn the basic technique to stack cards and start building some phenomenal structures. And, even if you are clumsy, your structures will still attract admiring comments. My daughter, who is 6, has started building and enjoys it more than lego.

Well written book ! Nice detailed illustrations/instructions

Well written book. Very clear instructions with a LOT of illustrations -- how to start to finish. Author also added humor to the text by showing how mistakes can happen and how it can all fall apart. Easy for kids to start with the initial tower and then build on it. Strongly recommend it .. it is fun .. it is different and well worth the price.

Learn From the Champ

If you have ever built a card house then you might be interested in this book. The author has created some very intricate card buildings (see the Capital on the cover) but it all builds on some simple basics.The author shows, with very clear instructions, how to start at the very beginning and then how to expand out, up, or both. There is even a section detailing the fun of knocking them down.The instructions are complemented by entertaining, and sometimes witty, text that holds the interest without becoming too scholarly.
