Customer reviews for Alas Chris & Jones
Just a so Wonderfull book for workers. The material is practicle and the explication are short and clear. It’s the kind of book which is beautiful on your living-room but also the kind you never finish to read it again and again to find some inspiration. I will not do the routines like there are descrided but they feed my brain. It is what I expert from a magic book. You can surely do what is written and have some fantastic réactions. But chut…. Keep it for yourself.
I like this book, I knew nothing about Chis or Jones, but I bought this book anyway, and boy I am glad I did, there is some wonderful material in here, with some new moves I newer heard about. there are some standard trick in here, Like card to pocket, but the methods are quite unique, I am only part way into to it, because I keep coming back to read what I just read, I like the tricks and I like the methods, some are very subtle and some I scratch my head, they seems to simple but they just might work. if your into card magic, and I have read a lot of card books . These two gentlemen offer a unique approach, and they both come up with some interesting solutions, to some standard trick, which are wonderful, but I really like the new trick that I never seen or read about before,
