I can't claim too much originality for anything to be described within these pages. After all the second deal has been around for a lot longer than most of us. But what I have tried to do is to describe the deals in FULL detail to enable you to learn them properly. Many of the tips and tiny points are being revealed for the very first time. Up until now they have been highly guarded secrets known only to professional cheats and the odd magician or two. EVERYTHING has been revealed here ... all you need to add is hard work ! Best of luck you've picked a real tough nut to crack !
If you'd like to know how good the deals are read the following quotes from some world renowned magicians who've seen me work- OK it's a little egotistical but I like to feel good too !
'Your second deal is the finest I've ever seen' ... Davide Costi 'Second to none' ... Larry Jennings 'Can we film that ?' ... Bruce Cervon and Jim Patton 'Incredible. It just looks so good !' ... Mike Ammar
'I cannot imagine a cleaner, more natural or deceptive handling' ... Mark Leveridge 'Superb' ... Jim Zachary
'Pass me a scotch ... I hate watching trick photography done live !' ... Terry Seabrooke And that's only a few quotes from a huge pile !
Now my second dealing is fine but Leonardo Da Vinci I am not so I'm afraid my artwork is not going to win any prizes from art schools. However I have taken a great deal of time to make them as accurate as I possibly can. With the drawings are also memory guides and additional tips. I'm pretty proud of them but then I did them !
As well as the deals I've also tried to give you the facts and fictions of second dealing, how to practise AND apply the deals, as well as a number of effects and ideas. You have everything here that you need to become one of the big boys !
Let's get going chaps !
The illustrations for this book come in a separate folder from which they can be removed. This is so that you can have a sheet of illustrations lying down flat in front of you as you both read through the text and also as you practise the deals, I hope that this will help you greatly as you move through the instructions as well as stop you getting the normal 'magic book' frustration which happens when you have to flick backwards or forwards through pages to find an illustration pertinant to the text you are reading.
Do look after your illustrations and keep them with your text. Losing them could hamper your progress considerably !
