This book teaches anyone magic! It has three different ratings for the difficulties of the tricks. Anyone from a beginner to a master can learn tricks from this awesome book!
If you are looking for a simple easy-to-follow book then don¿t get this. Sure, there are some great tricks listed but it also uses language that ¿Card People¿ will probably understand a bit better than the rookie beginner with no knowledge. Words like cut, fanny through the cards, among many more confusing words and lines instead of writing them in simpler terms. There are a lot of tricks but don¿t be ¿Tricked¿ yourself. There aren¿t really 101 tricks in this book because at the back you have a chapter titled ¿Silly Stuff¿ to do with cards, which wouldn¿t impress a 5 year old child. Silly stuff such as the dancing king ¿ where you grab a king from the deck and simply move it from side to side on the table (requires a lot of practice for this one folks à give me a break). Nonetheless this book does offer a chart of difficulty for the actual tricks in the book. Some tricks are actually quite good though. If this was designed and written for people with a bit of knowledge on cards and meanings for them, then this would be an ideal book to learn some amazing tricks. But if your not certain about the ¿card language¿ then I would recommend a beginners guide to card magic or something of similar preference
If you are looking for easy-to-do card tricks, with excellent in-depth explanations, this is the book for you. A must for all who are interested in card magic.
