Color photos of Paul's hands explain the necessary sleights.
The Introduction – ODDS & ENDS gives workers still more excellent ideas for performing, patter and close-up concepts to make your performances professional!
Effects included are:
I DON'T KNOW HOW IT HAPPENS… – A very funny opening effect to magically produce the four Aces with some really crazy patter!
TWISTING THE JACKS – This is a full-scale routine which adds some wonderful ideas by Paul along with Dai Vernon and Larry Jennings' routines to bring your spectators on a "roller-coaster ride" of magical entertainment. This one is great!
EWWW…BOOGERS! – If you want a routine that will make EVERYONE completely FREAK OUT – then look no further. This "accidental discovery" by Paul will encourage everyone to "break out" that invisible thread with a "NO FEAR" routine. The patter included is absolutely hilarious!
ORAL PRODUCTION – You want an "impossible" impromptu quickie to dazzle your spectators? Look no further. You will be talked about (in a good way!) for a long time. Wait until you see the look on the spectators' faces!
YOUR LUCKY CARD – Paul's rendition of a wonderful effect by David Corsaro that is interactive, very funny and quite magical. It is also very easy to do. A beautiful effect.
SALT SHAKER CLASSIC – A classic of magic. Paul has added another dimension to this wonderful routine that makes this amazing effect, easy to do. A real worker.
GESTALT – This beautiful routine by Paul includes and explains a very clever ploy that he has kept secret for many, many years. Your spectators will be dumb-founded! This same ploy can be used by any magician in many of his/her own routines to bring his/her magic to the next level!
BONUS…Below, Paul has provided a little-known, brilliant mathematical card effect, created and used often by Dr. Jacob Daley and a favorite of John Scarne.
THE MATHEMATICAL CARD TRICK – Doc Daley created a fiendishly clever card effect with this easy-to-do trick! You won't believe how deceptive this one is!
