Applications - My Review

Applications is a wonderful card magic book written by Peter Duffie. The materials are excellent and some of the effects are truly a beauty.

This is a wonderful book and don't miss this book. It covers not only card effects but also a few utility sleights which perhaps you may find them interesting. Some of the effects are quite technical demanding whereas there are some which I find not very difficult to do.

All in all, most of the materials are excellent and very strong as well. My personal favourites are "The Odin Sequel", "Audience Participation", "The Scottish Assembly" and a few others.
