Customer reviews for SHARP
If you want to perform a card stab routine. I highly recommend purchasing Sharp by Eric Richardson. Personally I think it is underpriced.
This is way under-priced. If this book was printed on hardback it could retail for 60 dollars and it would still be a bargain. The author meticulously goes over the history and the different approaches and methods. This is the comprehensive book on the subject of stabbing to a card. By the way it's only 10 for over 100 pages of knowledge. Considering most 10 minute downloads nowadays are the same price, this is definitely under priced. The only better deal I can think of now for an eBook would be Magic in Mind (it's FREE). Great work Mr.Richardson
The other reviewers said under priced... Under priced is an uunderstatement. Not only informative with history but informative of methodology.

Mr Eric Richardson, I would like to say thank you for your time, research, and abilities of writing in a clear and easy to understand way. I can now do a card stab with a FASDIU which can be borrowed.
