This is a wonderful magic book from Patrick Page an accomplished master magician and illustrated beautifully by Eric Mason. In fact the book is so good that Patrick Page was expelled from the IBM (International Brotherhood of Magicians) because some felt that too many secrets were exposed. He was later reinstated once people realized that writing good magic books is really in the interest of all.
