Comments: 135 Illustrations By Author. FROM THE AUTHOR: "Among the ideas and moves incorporated in this book, you will probably find many that will fit in with your type or style of magic, some you may wonder why they are included. The old saying, "what's one man's meat is another man's poison," fits magic as well as life itself. An effect that to one would be worthless, might be just what another needs to fit his patter, personality or what have you. This book is written with the sincere thought of giving you a wealth of material from which to choose. The selection of those you will use remains a matter of personal preference." The 1972 edition has an addition.
