My Favorite Card Tricks by Harry Lorayne

From the Foreword:

I sat down and described, in detail, fifteen of my favorite effects and routines with ordinary cards. Effects that you can do anywhere, any time, with any deck and under almost any conditions. Of the fifteen, only four begin with the standard "pick a card" opening.

I've used the same format as I used in Close-Up Card Magic and Personal Secrets - that is, I've gone directly into the method and presentation in most cases. And - since I usually write an effect in one sitting, I most often come up with a thought or two after it is written. Therefore - the "Afterthoughts." Don't overlook them; I'm sure you'll find some worthwhile suggestions and ideas there.

Good collection of card tricks. Some I was already familiar with but there are notes and techniques that allow me to perform those tricks better. Several of the tricks need a perfect Faro. That is something I will need to master.
