Scarne on Card Tricks

This marvellous treasury of card magic presents the exact details of 150 professional card tricks - none of them requiring sleight-of-hand dexterity - assembled by the world's number-one card wizard, John Scarne. An authority on gambling and card tricks, Scarne won renown for teaching professional gamblers how to sharpen their skills and avoid being fleeced. For this collection of mystifying and effective manoeuvres, he reworked some classic card tricks to eliminate the need for sleight-of-hand. Presented with simple instructions and clear illustrations, plus suggestions for accompanying patter, are Houdini's "Card on the Ceiling," Blackstone's "Card Trick Without Cards," Carlyle's "Piano Card Trick," Milton Berle's "Quickie Card Deal," and Scarne's very own "Drunken Poker Deal" and "Knockout Card Trick,"
