From the introduction:
In presenting my "second" book to the magical fraternity I have kept in mind the old saw, "Brevity is the soul, not only of wit, but applies to many magical tricks".
I have tried to make the text brief and, by giving plenty of illustrations, cut down on too much solid type.
I give no patter as I feel that every entertainer should be himself and develop a style of his own.
Fred Keating rose to stardom. "The Bird Cage", "Sympathetic Silks" and "Card in the Cigarette" were marvellous in his hands; others copied, but Keating's name still lives. "Be a magician, not an impersonator."
