Placebo is Daniel Madison's most recent book containing the thoughts of a man pushing the boundaries of what is possible with a deck of cards. Each Reward's store book has been individually signed by Daniel, and contains a small gift.




This is a collection of sleights and ideas for deception with playing cards.
Sometimes difficult, sometimes simple, always risky.
Ideas that should not work, but do.

These are trophy moves, not for laymen,
but boasting moves for the entertainment of the privy.
Routines and effects are merely vehicles for ideas.

I offer no direction, sometimes suggestions
but deliberately no more than ideas.
If you think they work or not, you are right.

I am Daniel Madison.

This is Placebo.

    Placebo is the perfect conjunction for Madison Gamblers and Moves, for which it has a lot of overlap between the two Products. Treat it as Gamblers/Moves in Book Format. Much like the relativity of HTCAC and Mechanic. 'Caveat Emptor'. Placebo is not for the faint of heart. The line 'These are trophy moves, not for laymen, but boasting moves for the entertainment of the privy.' best describes the Booklet.

    4 out of 5
    - Layout seems compressed. Images/Demonstrations are pushed towards the end of each page. More Space and pages wouldn't hurt. But nonetheless, a great Booklet for the Sleight-Happy Individual. Plus each copy is Signed by the Devil Himself, What more could you ask for?
