Livre de close-up avec des routines très variées.
My 158-page book contains the following:
WHAT IS THOUGHT SPACE?: My introduction explaining the title and purpose of the book.
KILL BILL: In which a word written on a randomly selected piece of bill perfectly matches a prediction written by the magician.
CHARMING REDUX: My handling of Troy Hooser’s “Charming Chinese Challenge” using just one coin instead of three.
SALT, STRAW, SPECTACULAR: A borrowed drinking straw penetrates through an ungimmicked salt shaker.
A GRAIN OF SALT: A shaker vanishes from between a participant’s hands and reappears back in the condiment holder.
SHAKER-THRU-WINDOW: A salt shaker is magically pushed through a restaurant window, to be found on the ground outside directly beneath it. Unsigned, initialed and signed variations included!
PIGMENT STACK: A special stack that allows you to do some killer effects!
THE COLOR OF MEMORY: This one hits laypeople AND magicians hard. The performer uses his intuition and memory to not only correctly divine the colors of freely cut-to cards, but also manages to separate the deck into red and black cards without looking. No markings of any kind.
THE PADDLE MOVE – A BRIEF DISSERTATION: I walk you through how I believe the paddle move should be accomplished in order to make it as deceptive as possible.
POLYCHROMATIC CONNECTION: My full Hot Rod routine that elevates this classic prop from a toy to a tool of mental destruction.
OCULAR FORCE: A highly deceptive optical illusion-based sleight that allows you to cleanly force one or more cards.
OCULAR ACES: Four participants choose “lucky” cards from a shuffled deck. The magician deals down cards in the deck according to the values of the selections, locating the four Aces!
SO IT GOES: AN ESSAY: A short essay on how Kurt Vonnegut influenced my magic and why you should let him influence yours.
