This work has become a classic among card magicians. Alternative Card Magic
was the first book for Peter Duffie and Jerry Sadowitz, two creative card men. Jeff Busby called it "the card magic book of the decade".
In the foreword Roy Walton writes:
"I have known Peter and Jerry since they first became interested in conjuring and have been amazed at their rapid progress in the art of conjuring with cards. Their work shows considerable originality, combined with ingenious methods and an acute awareness of what makes a good audience trick. Studying their tricks will give you pleasure - performing them will give your audience pleasure." - Roy Walton, Feb. 1982.
