This book is general close-up magic, with card tricks, money tricks, rubber band effects, The Cups and Balls (beautifully illustrated by a Disney animator), show worksheets and theoretical essays - and so much more.Inside you'll find the contents to Ammar publications that were out-of-print and difficult to find for years, such as: The command Performance Series, Encore I, Encore II, & Manual of Magic Psychology.
This large 328 page, hardbound book has become a classic of magic literature. With six commercial stand-up routines, 12 powerful utility sleights and devices, four reputation making routines, eight incredible essays, Michael's Cups and Balls routine and much, much more. This is the absolute best of Michael Ammar all in one volume!
