Nick Trost is well known for his simple, easy-to-do brand of card magic. He uses subtle moves and principles rather than difficult sleight of hand to produce entertaining card effects.
This book contains 122 of his best tricks, plus variations of these effects by fellow magicians. Most of the tricks have been gathered from his column in The New Tops and from his manuscripts, books and marketed items. All of the material has been revised and rewritten especially for this book. There are also many new, unpublished items here that are sure to delight the card magician.
Among the tricks included are such gems as Double Pinochle with an Elevator Finish, Matched Picture Cards, Eighteen-Card Poker and Blind-Sight. All of the tricks are described with easy-to-follow instructions, accompanied by 161 clear illustrations by Joseph K. Schmidt.
Here are a few of the areas covered:
- Court Cards
- The Four Aces
- Gambling Tricks
- Special Decks
- Packet Tricks

Also included is an appendix of useful sleights and subtleties.
