Comments: A story is told using a special deck of cards. Instant reset. Actually three stories can be told. Comes with special "book" deck of cards and 44 page manuscript. This got mixed reviews, many loving it, but some buyers apparently expecting more difficult magic. Tons of clear B&W photos throughout. The inner and outer covers include summaries of each story to aid in practicing.
