Sleightly Easier by Ken de Courcy

A book of alternative, easier, card sleights and tricks to go with them.

Excerpt from the introduction:

Many of the basic card sleights are not easy to do well. Take the Two-Handed Pass in which the top and bottom halves of the pack are transposed. The objective is to do it invisibly, which is just about impossible. To cover the action some very strong misdirection is required ... or an alternative method. This little book is about such alternative methods ... easier ways to bring about the same results. But because sleights, in themselves, are useless, I've endeavoured to include a few tricks so they can be utilised.
