From the Introduction:
Within the pages of this volume, the reader will find many effects which may easily be incorporated into a program of exposes, or as part of a manipulative act. None of the effects discussed in the first section require sleights more difficult than the doublelift. Many a performer will want to credit the occurrences to his own skill - even though none is involved. While at no time should the Lecturer attribute the happenings to "magic", a fairly plausible cause is sleight-of-hand.
Included in Section II of this volume, I have given the reader an illustrated guide to some actual methods employed by professional card men, and some ruses and gimmicks of my own. The reader may be surprised to learn the simplicity of many of the moves shown, and magicians will find much of the material suitable for card effects before lay audiences.
