I've been considering picking up Relaxed Impossibilities by Ken Krenzel and Stephen Minch, but was wondering if any of you have it and what your assessment is.  I got the impression from the scant reviews I could find that some found the effects unimpressive.

I wanted to add I like table work, and I looked at the conjuring archives and it seems the book has a lot of, even if relatively easy, sleights in it, so if that's the case, it might be worth the investment for that alone.

Good or bad what's your take?

Don't own it, but looking through the contents it looks to have value. As you mentioned, there are a number of unique sleights explained and they might be worth the $40.00 to you.

I read some good reviews and some not-so-good.

The way I look at it, if you find one trick in there or even one sleight that you can use regularly, then it is probably worth it.

He has work on the slip force, alternative Flushtration count, side steal and some intriguing moves related to card fans. I doubt you'll be disappointed.

I own and read the book. There's a small chance the original poster might be disappointed if the hopes are high.

No table work but most tricks aren't walk-around. I like the book, but I'd rate it the lowest among Ken's. There's a good reason the book didn't really make any noise. I suggest trying to get a used copy if you can, unless you really like Ken as a person or are a card-geek looking for *nice* things. I'm both.  

I'm the one who wrote the 4-star review in the Penguin Magic product page, which I don't know if you've read. Feel free to ask any questions.
