Nice Card Trick Book

I recommend this book. It is well worth the money! Tricks are well explained and easy to perform with practice. I also recommend it for beginners, as I am one. Go ahead, try it!

Very useful, practical advice for the beginner

I like this book of card tricks for the fact that it is user-friendly and practical-minded. After a brief introduction, Longe guides the reader through a series of card-manipulating exercises that have applications in hundreds of card tricks. He then lays out a series of card tricks, rated for their difficulty level, and complete with advice on what kind of audience might be best suited for any particular trick. The illustrations are simple and clear, and the tricks range from the basic to the extremely clever and inventive. There's nothing new under this sun, but a beginner will find this guide much better than average when seeking to learn the basic skills necessary to amaze their friends and strangers.

Fabulous for the beginning Magician!

I'm a magician member of the Magic Castle now, but in my early forays into card magic this book helped wean me away from trick Svengali and stripper decks, so that I could be handed a deck of cards from anyone and perform a nice trick. They're not all home runs. But I still get great responses from several of the tricks contained within here....and yes, I now own Card College, have read Royal Road to Card Magic several times, but those books should come after this one. This one will help you decide if you're serious about persuing more card magic or not.A fabulous starter book, but make sure you practice!!

THE BEST book I could find on card tricks.

No doubt that this is the greatest book on card magic. No sleight of hand is required and all you require is a deck of 52 cards, preferably the Bicycle brand Bridge sized cards which are easy to handle. Therefore the tricks are easy to learn. I am not a professional magician, no way close to being even an amateur and yet I could amaze and dazzle my family members and friends. I am just a beginner to this world and now I am genuinely interested in magic in general and card magic in particular. Thanks, Bob for this great book. I am sure I will check out his other books as well.

The reviewer from Horn should have read this fine book.

A reviewer from Horn has indicated that some previous proficiency is required. This is nonsense. The vast majority or the tricks are self-working. By many magicians, it's considered THE book for aspiring card-magicians. For proof of this, check out other reviews. I don't know what the other reviewer's problem is, but he certainly knows nothing whatever about card magic. Apparently the reviewer was too shy to include his name. I'm not. I'm Bob Longe, and I wrote the book, along with many others which have been well received.
