Marco's Comments:
Nice book on Fogel, however it didn't satisfy me: it is more a reprint of all Fogel's tricks and booklet with some biographical notes around them. The typeface doesn't change between the tricks and the biographical notes, which doesn't simplify the life of those (like me) already familiar with Fogel's output. I assume for a novice in the mentalism field, or for a collector of tricks, the book is a welcome one (although Fogel's tricks require skill and experience), but I would have prefered to have a book stronger on biography than on effects.
