"This is a book that not only justifies its existence by means of innovative material and original thinking, but which represents the mind of a thoughtful and tasteful creator who pays attention to myriad tiny details that can make all the difference between mediocre magic and beautiful illusions. This is the way magic books should be written." Jamy Ian Swiss (Genii magazine)
"Most card books present handlings or better ways of accomplishing things you already do. Handcrafted Card Magic gave me new things to do in already exceptional ways. This is a great book." Ricky Smith (M-U-M magazine)
"There is some fine thought in this material. My favorite pieces are "A Trick for Allen Kennedy" (a surprise, since I'm not usually drawn to gambling effects) and "Oil and Water Finale". However, there is much else to admire." Stephen Minch
"The chapter, however, that I predict will stand-out as one of the most important and influential contributions to the study of stacked-deck magic is "Finding The Way Home."" Pit Hartling
