Full Overview

How to Cheat at Cards is written by reformed card-cheat Daniel Madison. The book exposes and teaches the cheating techniques and devices that Daniel was successful with during his time as a professional card cheat.

With intricate detail and step-by-step instruction on the handling, dexterity and psychology of deception with playing cards, How to Cheat at Cards not only offers a thorough course in card-table artifice but also a fascinating first hand insight into the mind, devilry and mechanics of the card cheat.

    Absolutely incredible. It is very good, and I highly recommend getting this in addition to Mechanic. It is written like a study guide for card cheating, and I believe a more appropriate title would have been the original, The Card Cheat Handbook.

    This is a brilliant work on the art of card cheating. Since it is written from the experience of a card cheat, it ensures that each (sneaky) move has to look exactly like the real one.
