In this ebook you will find material that entertains and amazes, but more importantly, it is material that 'mere mortals' can actually do. Two dozen incredible routines. Cards, coins, and parlor/platform material is included.
Nothing is duplicated from Scott's other ebooks, lecture notes, or DVD--with one exception, and that has been greatly expanded and updated.
These routines bear the Guinn trademarks of clever thinking and thoughtful construction, from a man who has been called "one of our best close-up and stand-up performers" (Aldo Colombini, in The Linking Ring) and "one of the best writers in magic, hands down" (Shane Causer, in Visions, The Online Journal of Magic).
Here's what you get:
- 14 strong, commercial card routines. Great variety!
- 2 powerful coin routines that you can do!
- 4 entertaining and amazing routines for parlor and platform!
And as a SPECIAL BONUS, Scott carefully explains four routines by underground legend RAY GRISMER. This is KILLER stuff that you can and will use to great response.
