No skill - no sleights - no moves
From the introduction:
Now comes the question — Why bring all this in here? Merely to stress a point. ANY TRICK WILL BE CONSIDERED AN APPARENT MIRACLE WHEN THE CAUSE EVADES US. Pages and pages have been written in an attempt to define Magic. I will give it to you in FIVE words, "THE ART OF CONCEALING THE CAUSE". The better you are able to conceal the CAUSE, the greater the EFFECT on the onlookers. But when I say CONCEALING THE CAUSE, I certainly don’t mean to imply concealing from sight alone, but from the senses as well.

Pros - All self working, no slights, borrowed deck and some interesting principles.
Cons - Tricks have 'longish' process. A lot of dealing n counting involved.
But once I understood the basic principle, I could structure the tricks to suit my style.
