My new ebook on the memorized deck, The Road to Riffsville, will be available within a day or so. Here's a blog post filling you in on why I wrote it and what it contains.

Steve Bedwell has this to say about The Road to Riffsville: "Can't put The Road to Riffsville down and focus on anything else. (Especially frustrating because I'm at MAGIC Live!) Fascinating analysis of some of the issues I've personally experienced with the estimation aspects of memdeck work, with robust solutions. An outstanding contribution!"

The reviews for The Road to Riffsville are coming in. Here are three excerpts:
 
“Revising and clarifying his own analogy from the world of music (‘jazzing’ being the operative term here), Mike thoroughly demystifies the concept of ‘improvising’ with a memorized deck. If you follow his Road to Riffsville, you will want (and be able!) to start riffing away almost immediately.” – Pit Hartling
 
“I was struck by how much a simple statement would illuminate something for me.” – Randy Naviaux
 
“This work is one of reflection by a Master. Michael not only offers what works for him, if you read closely, he offers insights that can apply to everyone. This is definitely an important contribution to memorized deck magic...It’s foundational.” – Jed Brooks Smith
