I recently purchased and read this book. It was very innovated and interesting. It does have some tricks that have been around for awhile but those tricks that aren't done very often do get a good response. I have used a few from the book and the response has been very good. I recommend this book for the novice as well as the semi and professional entertainer. There is something for most everyone. Enjoy and learn to amaze friends, family and anyone else who would like to be entertained.
