Andrus Card Control by Jerry Andrus

Customer rank: +2

This is Jerry Andrus' most important publication.

This ebook includes volume 1 and 2 of the printed version. The more than 1000 illustrations from volume 2 have been inserted close to where they are referenced in the text, making this ebook a lot easier to study than the original printed version where text and illustrations are separated.

Jerry Andrus was an incredible creative and inquisitive man. He could converse just as easily on questions surrounding quantum mechanics as he could on magic and optical illusions. He looked at a deck of cards very differently than most of us. This allowed him to create unique and astonishing moves and applications for them. Anybody seriously interested in sleight-of-hand card magic should study this most important publication by Jerry Andrus.

Don't waste your time or money!!! There are better systems and sleights to use, then using jogs, pivot control juggling!!! Jerry does not like to use finger breaks, but sometimes the finger breaks are practical, without looking like your hiding something. TO BE FAIR--the book is incredibly well written and well illustrated, and easy to read, then most card magic books on the market.

Jerry did a great job in writing the book. This is Jerry Andrus' perspective and his own style of magic.
