Huh? This is only 13 bucks? And thus another example of not judging a book by its cover (or cover price). The average price of a magic bookis well over 50 dollars, and those books seem to getting thinner.
Yet here wehave a universally praised, important collection of a (sadly and recently) deceased master...and it's 13 bucks. JC Wagner was a master bar magician, a humanbeing of the finest caliber, and he will be sorely missed. His major book isout of print, and this is the perfect way to read material you can’t find anywhere else. Why is it only 13 dollars?
You know the piece by piece torn and restored card that everyone has a version of, from Hollingworth to Garcia? It all begins here,with a revolutionary piece-at-a-time restoration from JC.
There is also a lovely color changing deck routine worthy of study, and some important card and coin work that was, at the time, cutting edge. A no brainer at any price, and a must-have at this price.
