Guide Review - Now You See It, Now You Don't: Book Review
The second book takes off where the first book leaves off to offer more basics and higher level sleight of hand, again with an emphasis on cards and coins, with moves for balls and other objects. Tarr also wrote a third book that explained how to work with and perform with standard props that one might buy at a magic store.
“Now You See It, Now You Don’t” offers a few routines and tricks, but the emphasis here is on moves. But master a good chunk of what is in these books and you’ll be able to pickup almost any instructional magic DVD or book that requires intermediate to advanced moves and be right at home.
I highly recommend Tarr’s books. However, I didn’t realize how high these books are going for these days. They’re out of print and in demand.
