"If you want real workable routines that play strong for both magicians and lay people, this is the best of the best, picked from all of Scotts now Out Of Print manuscripts. You won't go wrong with My Best to You, Volume 1: Cards by Scott Guinn." - Jeff Pierce
"This is a book by a professional offering real material, practical magic in real life situations. Every effect and every patter is written to get an extremely strong magical (not skill) impact. All the presentations are audience-oriented rather than performer-complacent. This reminds me of the magic I loved from late masters like Tommy Wonder or Fred Kaps and I sometimes found the script possibly superior to such masters. Don't hesitate; buy it!" - Etienne Lorenceau (Lawrence O)
"I must confess I got stuck at Unpredictable. It is so good I had to actually work through it before moving on. Honestly, when I first read it I was thinking, "No way. There is no possible way to pull that off." I was wrong. The switch is clean, the construction is clever, and the routine is diabolical." - Burt Yaroch
"I have seen Scott kick butt with these routines in paid performances, and he tips it all in this book. I've seen him do effects like 'Universal Appeal' up close, and even though I'm familiar with the method, it still looks magical." - Darrin Cook
