Scalbert's Selected SecretsGeoffrey Scalbert
From the foreword by Fred Castl:
He is a great student of Erdnase and I know of no one who knows more about "jog" shuffles than Geoff. He knows more forces than Annemann wrote about but he has also kept up with modern sleights and moves. The magician who wants long and involved routines will be unlucky when he reads this book, but what he will find will be tricks with a plot and methods simplified wherever possible to include the minimum of sleights but the maximum of effect, and I shall be very surprised if there is any magician who cannot find in this book something to use.

Piano RolesJon Racherbaumer
Jon loves to collect, compare, and organize tricks into themes and plots. This is his latest work on the piano trick.
WHAT IS THE PIANO TRICK?
A spectator places his hands palm down on the table in the same way a pianist places his hands on a keyboard. Then pairs of cards are placed between the spectator's fingers to set the stage. These pairs are then fairly removed to form two equal piles. An extra or "odd" card is added to one of the piles. Then, without any further movements or fanfare, the "odd" card inexplicably travels to the other pile.

Psychological ReadingRobert A. Nelson
NOTE: This reading is also contained in the Nelson book, Confessions of a Medium.
Amaze any spectator, even one whom you've not met before, by giving an in-depth character reading that reveals psychological insights your client hasn't shared with anyone.
Spectators are more readily convinced by fortune tellers, and the like, if the reader begins the reading without first asking a lot of questions. In other words, the psychic gives the reading "from the cradle to the grave," as though the spectator's life were the pages of an open book.
No sooner does the client enter the room, then immediately the reader...
