Best of All Worlds - magic

It has influenced some of the world's greatest magicians.
It temporarily put a World War on hold.
The odds of it actually happening are staggering.

Best of All Worlds is not just a book about a "Magic Trick". It is an extensive, in-depth look at what Dai Vernon called "the card trick of the century."

Chronicling the creative evolution of this single magical effect over seven decades, Best of All Worlds brings the history and challenges of Out of This World to light. It is a unique collection of over thirty routines -- some old, some new, some never before seen in print -- submitted by the world's leading magicians. In addition to their personal performances, the contributors have given insight into and musings about how this classic effect has influenced their magic.

Filled with history, stories, and, most of all, magic, Best of All Worlds pays tribute to one of the greatest card tricks of all time: Paul Curry's classic card effect Out of This World.

Customer reviews for Best of All Worlds


There is something to be said about an effect that put a World War on hold.

Out of this World is that effect. This book is all about that effect. It gives you the orginal effect. Plus dozens of professional performers versions of this effect. Be it different methods, or presentation ideas.

The only reason I can't give it excellent, is that some of the methods don't constitute as a new methods, just nips and tucks. Other than that, a very good book. It is up there with the bill switch book, 'Switch' by John Lovick
