A card magic book for the middle level conjuror is what we have here, and of which the magical writer Karl Fulves says there are too few!

But that has been changed somewhat since Tannen Magic, Inc. had Dr. Taub write The Doc and His Deck exclusively for Tannen's. Doc Taub is one of the world's leading authorities on card work, and as Karl has emphasized, the Doc knows just how to fill the needs of card workers who are no longer beginners, but who are not yet absolutely full-fledged experts. In short, the Doc has provided a roadmap through the impenetrable jungle of technical jargon of the super-pros.

Doc's advanced "Easy Training" manual covers a fantastic variety of card sleights and routines: The Ambitious Card; Card Transposition; Three-Card Ambitious; Four-Ace Production; False Riffle; Card Forces; Card Control; Hindu Shuffle; Deliberate Mistake & Recovery, Dovetail Shuffle; False Cuts; Double Cut; Faro Shuffle; 25-Card Trick, Do As I Do; Four-Ace Production; Single Card Production; Buckle Maneuver; Buckle Concealment; Hidden Card.

Is your mind beginning to reel a little with these entertaining, vitally useful card techniques? The Doc provides still more: Blanks and Jokers; Floating Aces; Cards to the Pockets, Plunger Four-Ace Production; Gambler and the Kibitzer; Rising Card, Universal Modifications. And that is not all. He also supplies a few Bonus (Non-Card) Effects (Four-Coin Penetration; Reverse Match; and Salt on Knife)! Go back slowly over that listing, and if you're into magic, but not fully up on all the classic effects and necessary moves, you'll appreciate how much Doc's book will mean to you as the ideal text for the intermediate students of card magic.

The rave reviews for this book just keep on coming: "Explicit, detailed descriptions and illustrations make Dr. Jack Taub's book an example of what magical scholarship should be." - Ken Krenzel.

"A welcome addition to any magician's library. It is a compilation of methods and effects that bring card magic up-to-date." - Sam Schwartz.

"If you have a little knowledge of card magic and wish to add to your arsenal of sleights and tricks, Jacob Taub is a wonderful teacher." - Karl Fulves
