I've been reading through Versatile Card Magic - Revisited by Frank Simon and I have found it to be an absolutely fascinating read. Not only do the mechanics of the sleights placate the "move monkey" part of my brain, but the magical plots to which they are applied are fantastic. In particular, the author provides not one, but two variations on the triumph effect (one of which is accomplished in the hands), which is my favorite card magic plot. I was just curious if anyone else has read this book and what their thoughts are?

This is a great book and has been a mainstay on my shelf for years. Great card magic. I suggest teaming it up with Earl Nelson's book.
