Marco's Comments:
This book comes with a DVD with performance of all effects and templates for some of the tricks, to print out. On the DVD, there are also the photos in the book in colour. A very interesting production, and a good DVD. The material in the book is VERY good and exceedingly well detailed: Roger gives the exact kind of pens to use for some effects, and explains very clearly how to make all the gimmicks. Some effects are simple "revisitations" of existing tricks, without giving any great improvements (like "Souls of Previous Times" - the only difference from Neale's trick is the use of tarot cards rather than standard playing cards). However, "A Gift From Elizabeth Francis" is a great presentation for "ashes in the palm" with a truly devious handling; Psychotronic is an original EFFECT that is very clean; the 3 Patterns Prediction is a great use of multiple outs; Subliminal perception really fooled me; Zurcon presents a very clever gimmick, worth experimenting with; and the Third Eye is a very clever faked envelope that may be useful for a number of routines. A great book!
