Dai Vernon's Further Inner Secrets of Card Magic

Dai Vernon's Further Inner Secrets of Card Magic

The third book in Vernon's famous Inner Secrets of Card Magic series.

This short volume has more of a gambling-theme than the others in the trilogy with routines around poker and Three Card Monte. A whole chapter on dealing seconds will leave you with plenty to practice, and we see a lot of coverage of palming notes -- specifically for the Gambler's Palm of course. There is ample content in this book unrelated to gambling and more suited to be called simply magic, so give it a read and I'm sure you'll find something to enjoy!

While we don't hear directly from Vernon within these pages, we very much do get a glimpse at the level of mastery he had in card magic.

And please do not forget -- remember, do not forget -- sleights and methods are merely the tools. What you do with them is up to you.
