Bob Dunn was an illustrator by profession and this work is full of illustrations making each trick easy to comprehend and learn. From the introduction:

With a few exceptions, the tricks in this book can be performed by any reader without any other equipment than is to be found in an average home. Complicated apparati have been utilized by a great many magicians in winning a reputation for themselves, but the best of modern magic is performed without gadgets, by sleight-of-hand artists completely surrounded by audiences and working with familiar objects - cards, coins, handkerchiefs, cigarettes, etc. It is not necessary for you to have wands, concealed confederates, springs, mirrors or double-buttoned trunks, to make yourself the life of the party with magic.
