This 185 page e-book (pdf) contains 67 card effects by Al Thatcher (the Kindle edition comes out to 119 pages after formatting). While not for the beginning card magician, the effects contained in this book are certainly within the reach of the intermediate card magician. The most difficult sleight would probably be an overhand stock shuffle or the “Elmsley Count”–pretty basic indeed. If you like effects that use the “Breather Crimp,” you will be pleased with what you find in these pages. Al liked creating effects that used the “Breather” and there are many such effects in this book. In short, it is a book that will satisfy the most discerning magician and provide him/her with several effects that are worth many times the price of the book.
