"A most opportune book ... [explaining] thirty-five methods. Both the publisher and the author are to be congratulated on giving to magicians such a good thing as this book. One very important feature of the book is a Fifteen Minute Act with Handkerchiefs called 'The Silky Slicker.' Believe I'll use it myself." - Dr. A. M. Wilson, The Sphinx magazine
