#2 in Theory, Articles & Reviews top-rank

Jarle Leirpoll is one of Norway's leading Stand-Up and Close-Up performers. He received the Norwegian magician of the year award in 1998. You will find effective and deceptive ways to switch, ditch and steal - using only the normal pockets and occasionally a Topit. Several original routines and lots of techniques and ideas are explained in detail, including more than one hundred illustrations. On top of that four video clips are embedded in the ebook which show 5 effects. The chapter about Choreographic Misdirection has been significantly increased over the paper version of this book from 1995.

My favorite is his bill switch without any gimmick. This is the kind of professional thinking one rarely finds - eliminate the unnecessary leaving the effect as strong as before. Very clean! I am going to practice this myself.
