Daniel Madison is one of the most respected and creative magicians to come from the underground in over ten years. His classic, restrained style is carried through all of his creations, presenting spectators with an impossible moment without the overacted furore of so many magical effects these days.
Daniel made it his life’s vocation to become a master of sleight-of-hand and the deceptive practices. He has spent the past 15 years developing a unique and sharp arsenal of tricks and sleights alongside an instantly recognizable trademark style.
He now utilizes his creative flair, studies, expertise and the devilry of his past to offer Creative Consultation for Ellusionist, developing and creating unique and groundbreaking magic and searching the world for the most astonishing tricks and amazing underground artists. His creativity has seen him work with the likes of Penn & Teller and Derren Brown for UK Television and his effects continue to be used in headline Magic TV Specials to this day.

I got this book 6 months ago and I still have not finished it. When it comes to value for money, nothing compares to Anthology! If you enjoy DM's work than this is a must have. However, one must have a patient mind with this book as its contents are MONUMENTAL, but who in their right mind would complain about that?
Beautiful book, yes it is a lot of money but if you even glance at the list that is included in the description you can tell that is a lot of knowledge for such a small price. Not everyone will enjoy all the effects and that comes with it being such a diverse book, you will learn from every page you read maybe little subtleties that will help with other effects and make you a better performer. Honestly there is just so much stuff in this book you will read, go and road test these effects that you find interesting and go back, re-read the exact same page and find another little sentence that you had missed and figure out a while new set of ideas and routines that one effect can fit into. Mind you this is how the whole book has been for me, I haven't finished it but I did skim though to see if anything caught my eye and a lot did even effects that are usually outside of comfort zone, namely Dead Mans CTP. This isn't a book of effect or tricks its a book on how to make yourself a better performer. After owning it for nearly two weeks I feel confident enough to say this is a must have book.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I was given it as a gift, and 6 months later I still am reading more and more amazing effects. Anybody who is a magician will benefit with this book, whether you're a beginner or expert. This is a must buy!
If only i could add 10 statrs to this product i mean this has to have been one of my best purchases here on e first i thought almost 100 bucks for a book? But when i finally bought it i was so surprised by all the great material in here daniel madison has done it again i mean some of the tricks are worth the price alone but i don't want to spoil it so just buy it ADD TO CART NOW!!!!!
Great book totaly worth the money you will spend for it.
This is just SO superb! $100 is a lot until you realize how much you're getting. Some of these effects are worth that alone! Stunning body of magic. This is one of my favorite items from Ellusionist, Buy for sure! 5/5
I waited to review this until I had finished it, and it is great. It is a little overwhelming at first, simply because of the amount of effects, but after going through it, it is totally worth it. Don't buy this if you think you are going to love every effect, because you won't. There were a few BOOKS in here that I won't be using, simply because it isn't my style. But you are sure to find your money's worth in the effects that you will use. And if you are not accustomed to Daniel's teaching style, this will be hard to follow. I recommend getting Chaos Theory beforehand, and if that teaching is enough for you, then you won't have trouble. Also, get the Gambler's Cop Download first, as many of these effects use that sleight. And while this is all based around playing cards, it encompasses every branch of magic, from mentalism to sleight of hand.
this book is great. im a fan of daniel madison so i went ahead and gave it a shot. im taking one trick at a time this book has alot of great tricks to learn i would really recommend it because this book will last a good year of tricks
I'm a mentalist so at first I thought this book was not suited for me, I then thought weeks later why not, I mean its always good to have a back up (card sleights etc) so I bought the book and found out this book contains more than I could ever imagine. I even use some of the materials in my own shows. And people love it
this is a must buy, no matter what you do
Without saying how good this book is (mind-blowing) lets look at the numbers. Over 200 tricks, thats like .50$ a trick. Even if you only like and will use 25 of them, thats still under 4$ a trick. Get this now!
This book covers more card deceptions than any other book I have purchased and at 95 dollars is well worth the money, brilliant writing and easy to follow and some serious reputation makers add to cart don't let the price tag put you off.
This is the ultimate companion to mechanic, the reading is excellent and I urge anyone that is interested in the unseen art of card cheating to purchase this now, unbelievable read add to cart or you will regret it, Daniel Madison is a great writer and he explains things in such detail that it is so easy to follow great job Daniel.
At first I thought "Almost $100 for a book?", and then I just bit the bullet and bought it. This book is amazing, and provides an insane number of tricks, and much more. One of the best purchases I've ever made(I mean ever, and not just on this site).You NEED this book.
