Definitely one of my favorite books of all time. I learned so much from this great book during my teen years growing up in magic. There are things in this book you just will not find anywhere else. The author of this book, Norman Hunter, was the last of the Maskelyne show so he really knew his magic. Great black and white photos and clear sharp line drawings. A real gem.
