Here is to the best of my knowledge the bibliography of all my published contributions to magic and a few outside of magic… : books, articles, essays, videos, downloads and a larger etcetera. I was frankly quite surprised myself when I saw the amount of it. Few seem to perform this wonderful piece; although it only needs a little set-up, but one which is a pain in the neck. This is my method to get into the necessary set-up using only a single Overhand Shuffle. What are the benefits for those who practice magic as a hobby or profession?
Personal Note I wrote this book for fun. I truly enjoy analyzing, understanding and describing complex physical, psychological and dramatic sequences as precisely as possible. Yes, writing this course really was great fun. I hope some of the fun rubs off. I hope that you sense terrnswill be used frequently in our studies. This inner joy springs from the Imowledge that one has made something of oneself, that one has exhibited and expressed oneself fully in an artistic sense. Perhaps it will also be a constant source of joy, refreshing and relaxing your spirit in your moments of leisure with a creative and challenging activity.
