I knew Joe quite well since I lived in Blackpool at one time. He was very talented and versatile. Not only could he work a good cabaret stand up act he could do close up magic very well along with memory work and tarot card reading. In fact he wrote just about the most practical book ever written on the Tarot. It promised that you could learn the Tarot in seven days. Guess how long it took me! Exactly seven days. That little book must have earned me more money than any book I have ever read! Alas the book is virtually unobtainable nowadays. I also own a lesser known book which he attempted to sell to the public via Prediction Magazine rather than to magicians. It was a cross between a memory training book and a new age psychic reading book!
