"Within these pages the reader will find many new effects. He will also discover a few oldies in new dress. But most of all he will find good, effective card tricks that he can perform with a minimum of skill that will be completely baffling to any audience. No apparatus, no trick cards, no difficult set-ups, no difficult moves." (J. B. Bobo)

"The thirteen card illusions are accomplished without sleight-of-hand, and they seem to be REAL magic." (John Braun)

"All effects described required a minimum of skill but depended on subtlety. His contribution to the art will be remembered." (Howard Bamman)
