I bought this book in Hawkins yesterday and must say I'm impressed with it. There's nothing earthshattering there but some very nice ideas that I'm going to try to incorporate into my own tricks.

The thing I was impressed with was how easy the ideas came of how I could change the effect to suit my needs. I'm not sure if that was the style of writing or quite what.

I have used the book test one a few times (where you use their year of birth to calculate the page number) and a few people, after a good hard think, managed to suss it out. It completely freaked them out when I did it but it kept them up all night trying to work it out!
All of the things in this book are fairly easy to do and some are really effective. Very good for a beginner.

I got how to be a mind magician yesterday in Hawkins Bazar while in york,and at first i wasny sure about getting it, because it was very short. But then I remembered a phrase I heard on a magic site "If something has one good effect you can use in it, it was worth the price" So I bought it. Its fantastic!!!!!!!! One of my favorites, that I could perform straightaway, was The one where you tell which hand something is in...
