Unlike the previous volume, this volume consists almost entirely of effects. All of the technique tips found in this volume are taught as part of the effects and do not have their own section as in the previous book.

Like the previous volume and the one that follows, this book is full of candid photos showing the professor at work and at play. You'll feel like you're sitting in the Magic Castle with Dai Vernon as he shares the stories and experiences of his life.

Originally published in 1988, this text is now available as a convenient eBook for the first time! It contains over 50 of Vernon's routines, 27 historical photos and 177 illustrations on 245 pages.
