David Britland describes a lovely gimmick which allows you to produce an eerie rising card effect. The basic concept of the gimmick is not new and it was not new in the 80s when the first edition of this booklet was published. However, the value of the ebook lies in the various ways to deploy the gimmick, the different effects one can achieve, and the methods to clean up or transition into the next routine.
You will learn how to achieve a double rise effect where first the deck rises out of the case and then the selected card rises out of the deck. You also read a great anecdote how Dave Williamson fooled Ascanio with this gimmick. And a lot more.
Everything is wonderfully illustrated by David himself.

A good book(let). It gives you a completely practical method to make a card rise that will fool people. The material he recommends using can probably be replaced with more modern "stuff", but the handling, etc. is top-notch.
It gave me a ton of ideas to play with.
