But don't just take our word for it. Here's what some of the best minds in magic have to say about Routined Magic
"Lovers of intimate magic will find many items of interest. Routines with the egg bag, cups and balls, and thimbles are especially good. Mardo demonstrated a few of his moves with the egg bag for me while I was in New York. This one item is worth far more than the price of the book." - J. G. Thompson, Jr.
"Good, solid magic." - Al Baker
"Smooth, workable routines. You're sure to find at least one item you'll use." - Sid Lorraine
"This is no mere book of explanations. It tells the reader how to perform the tricks well. One of the best books of the season." - Dariel Fitzkee
