“Can you imagine what it must have been like, to be sitting at Ed’s table, and be dumbfounded as Ed produced a signed card from the tabled card case? I envy you to whom some of this material is truly new. Because here you don’t have to choose between what?s new or what’s good. In this volume, you get it all.” —Simon Aronson
“This book dramatically and entertainingly reveals why Marlo was always ‘ahead of his time,’ providing strong card magic that ultimately proved to be timeless, applicable to all times, for all magicians.” —Jon Racherbaumer
“This anthology is jammed with great magic. If this is your first time reading the material, consider me jealous of the discoveries you are about to make. But, pay attention to the details. Ed Marlo did, and with them fooled the world. Studying and adding his kind of clever thinking and subtleties to your work will let you fool it too.’ —David Solomon
