#3 in Cards hot-list
#2 in Mentalism & Spiritism hot-list
Add to your arsenal of outstanding mental and card effects with this hard to find manuscript from a recognized master of deception. These exclusive secrets will serve you in good stead throughout your performing career, no matter whether you're a professional, semi-pro, or hobbyist.
Contains ten effects, plus as many as four methods for performing each one, all patiently and painstakingly explained. You may, in fact, chuckle to yourself as you read the practical, yet diabolical methods -- they're so darned clever. They all have the "Baker Twist", where gimmicks and ruses are used on the off beat, leaving the performer clean at the finish.
Plus, only in this edition, do you receive four methods for constructing your own Al Baker Deck, which he was justifiably proud of.
