is a sensational collection of magic and gambling effects with cards. This book picks up right where Jason's critically-acclaimed debut, Confident Deceptions
, left off. Jason has once again raised the bar with 18 new, powerful effects, gorgeously illustrated with 225 stunning, high-quality, full-color photographs.
Jason makes his living with a deck of cards, and the routines in this book come directly from his close-up act. These effects have been performed over and over for years in front of lay audiences. You'll find nothing but strong, polished routines that amaze and entertain.
Along with technical ability and presentational skill, Jason's strengths also include his creativity. He creates new card plots and completely reinvents the classics. The effects are constructed so as to baffle the sharpest audience. Although some routines in this book will require focused practice, any difficult sleights are taught in explicit detail, and the reward is well worth the work.
