This is the first of two books in the "Light" series. It's a collection of card tricks that require absolutely no sleight of hand. Instead they rely in clever structure, subtleties and routining.
The 21 tricks have been compiled into complete routines, each lasting around ten minutes. So not only will you learn some great tricks - you'll also learn some complete performance pieces with great patter and presentation.
If you're an experienced card magician, you'll probably be aware of most of the tricks, but you will definitely learn from the routining that Giobbi provides. If you're new to card magic, or just looking for some easy tricks, you'll also take even more away from this book.

Customer reviews for Card College Light
What a book! Roberto Giobbi presents seven routines of three tricks each, complete with scripts. He encourages you throughout to develop your own scripts if you wish and to mix and match the tricks into your own routines. Most of the tricks are wonderful but there is as much value in the routining. He does a wonderful job of taking advantage of the procedure of one trick to set up the next. Since the spectator experiences each effect as a somewhat distinct event they never suspect that you have set up another killer effect right in front of their eyes. Giobbi really elevates what could be transparent tricks into mysterious impossibilities. I can not recommend this book highly enough.
Everything that Roberto writes is gold!
If you are new to card magic this is a great start with some easy to achieve effects that are pre packaged into mini routines.
It will take some practice initially, but with no sleights you will quickly pick it up and be performing for Friends and family.
If you can afford it get the 2 other books in the series (Lighter & Lightest) as a complete set.
Amazing book!! I am still quite new to all this, I have Card College 1 + 2 and will add the remaining three as soon as I can. The Card College books are brilliant, but as I said I am new to this and find myself struggling with a lot of the sleights, even some of the fairly easy ones. When I came across this title I bought it without hesitation on the strength of the Card College volumes, and I'm so glad I did, it is absolutely brilliant. I can now learn some great tricks to show my family whilst practising from the other volumes. It has made a massive difference to me, at last I feel like I am getting somewhere, and the frustration is nearly gone. I know it's all about practice, practice, practice, but this has made such a difference. so much so I am just about to order volume two, Card College Lighter, and will definitely be getting volume three. I can't recommend this book enough
