I’ll Pass


Wesley James has been seriously analyzing, studying, and improving the Pass for well over 50 years. In this volume his efforts are fully revealed for the first time.


When other magicians, even experts, have witnessed Wesley perform many of his treatments of the Pass, they’ve been incredulous. They simply can’t believe the Pass, any Pass, can be as invisible as they are in Wesley’s hands. Now, in this large volume, you can learn these invisible, indetectable Passes, as well as the most deceptive Shift that can be performed at the card table, including the legendary “Ping Pong Shift.”


You’ll need to practice these techniques, but you can be assured that your efforts will yield the Passes and/or Shifts you have always desired. The choice is yours, spend uncounted hours trying to learn to perform a Pass that may or may not ever create the result you’ve been striving for or study Wesley’s discoveries and attain the finest, most deceptive Passes ever developed.


There has never been a book that even approached being comprehensive in examining the Pass. There was Jean Hugard and Fredrick Braue’s Invisible Pass, but, despite the contribution it made, it fell short of its goal. Wesley has fixed the problems with the Hugard and Braue technique, which now, for the first time, can be performed both invisibly an indetectably. If that was all you learned in the pages of this volume, it would be invaluable, but it barely scratches the surface.


The Classic Pass has been described innumerable times in magic’s literature, dating back at least to the mid-18th century, but, although Ralph Read did a commendable job in describing the correct technique, even his description had serious short-comings. Wesley has identified those weaknesses and corrected them, thus creating not one but several variations of the Classic Pass that are designed for the specific kinds of situations you are most likely to encounter. Each is described in full detail in the pages of this volume.


If Gambling demonstrations are your favorite area of pursuit, after reading the pages of I’ll Pass you’ll be able to perform the legendary “Ping Pong Shift.” I’m not talking about the Vernon theory, as shared with Faucett Ross, but the real “Ping Pong Shift.” The technique is so deceptive it could get by without question in even the strictest card game.


I’ll Pass includes well over 350 pages of Wesley’s celebrated detailed descriptions, commentary and the secrets that make Wesley’s Passes among the most invisible in the long history of magic. Available now at just $60 USD. 

Pre-release price for Magicians Forum members is $50 for ebook version only

Hi Wesley, is this an actual book or an e-book only? It sounds very comprehensive.

Hello Magicfish and everyone! This past October I had the fortunate opportunity to actually session with Wesley as he demonstrated the basics of his unique approach for the classic pass — I can tell you first hand that it ABSOLUTELY invisible — his techniques make the pass virtually impossible to detect from any angle. I’m sure this book will be very worthwhile and it is definitely on my Christmas list! — johnny

We spent some time talking about the pass at our little session. It sounds like this may be a great resource for David and others who are interested in this pretty difficult move.

Magicfish — I fully appreciate (and agree with!) your love of hardcopy books — but I am not sure if this is in hardcopy format or not; I am sure about the effectiveness of Wesley’s handling/method for the pass, however. If necessary, I’ll go with the ebook and print up pages as I work my way through it. Hopefully Wesley will respond to this thread in the near future— johnny

To all that asked,
      Thank you for your kind words reporting your experience in viewing my Pass. I'm not sure how many of the versions of the Pass I showed you, but all the Passes I demonstrated at the gathering were Passes from the book. I think all those who invest the time into learning the techniques from the book will be very pleased with the results. 

The economics of the magic publishing business would require that a book of this size and scope would be priced at roughly $125 per copy. A book addressing a subject as technically sophisticated as the Pass would need a price tag of $150+, not including shipping cost. Thus, to keep the price as low as possible, avoid the cost of inventory and shipping, I'm publishing my books as ebooks. Their are a number of companies online that can convert a pdf file into a hardcover book for those who so desire. This process, of course, has a cost, but for those who are seriously devoted to physical books--an attitude close to my heart--it may be worth the cost. For most, the information will be available and can be studied as needed.

For those who are simply book collector or are die-hard hardcover book fans, some of the print-on-demand services should meet their needs. In any case, thank you all for your interest.

Hi Wesley,

Do you happen to have any video demos of any of the passes that are taught in your book?

   Sorry, not at this time. I'm recovering from a thumb injury, so I can't do much of anything. When I've recovered, which could be a month or more, I might try to make some videos, but those who attended the Danny Block gathering, back in October, got to see me demonstrate some of the Passes I teach in the book. They were astounded that I could possibly being performing various forms of the Pass. I'll let you know if/when I can make some videos.

       Take care,

            Wesley James
