Mariano Palhinha, famous for his manipulative magic, here reveals his favorite effects--many of which rely on subtlety instead of difficult sleights. Primarily card miracles, one or more should easily find a place in your repertoire.
From the introduction by B. W. McCarron:
I urge you to pay particular attention to the author's 'With the Chameleons' — a two-deck miracle that features a double color change of the card backs. And then, to top it off, the two decks themselves exchange places on the table!
