Cinders: Incineration/RestorationDee Christopher
"The idea rocks, Clean, Simple, Effective and most of all baffling." - Daniel MadisonA completely impromptu twist on the common tear and restore plot.

A portion of the card is burnt away, leaving half a card in the magician's hand.
With just a wave, or even a blow the signed card fully restores and is given out as a souvenir.

A Gambler's DreamRoberto Giobbi
This is pure Giobbi, a great card routine including Poker, Stud Poker, BlackJack, and Bridge demonstrations where the gambler always wins. However, the real value are the lessons Giobbi teaches you in terms of constructing a routine, timing and psychology. He explains why he says a certain word or sentence at that particular time and not earlier or later and why not anything different. You get the reason and thus you can apply these lessons to many other effects. These insights transcend the routine at hand and will make you a much better, more effective and more knowledgeable magician.

"Everyone should work the Castle for a week. Not for the money, but for the memories." - Larry BeckerMany years ago the first mentalism trick I purchased was "Psycho II" an incredibly clever method, so clean, so fair but what a deception. Larry in his own words in 1984:
