This is a classic. Every Magician should read it specially the young ones and above all Val Valentino to see how old the tricks we still use today are so very old and tricks remain tricks if their secrets are preserved. This book contains a wealth of information which would be useful for both beginners and advanced readers. This book is also good for inventors who would get a lot of ideas to invent and recycle. Having said that, I would like to mention am not happy with the html e-book offered here as firstly it is not a pdf version but an html. Somehow in the version the page from the original book has been divided into various html pages and you have to keep pressing the next button to keep reading. Though the cover shown on the catalogue has the old look, the charm of an old book is not only its content but also the layout and antique look. I was expecting to see that but that has unfortunately not been preserved in this version.
