Hi All,

I've been having a look through the L&L EPub site. They have a cracking sale going on at the moment and came across The Wild Card Kit Jon Racherbaumer. Just wondering if anyone has read it and is it worth a read?
I know it's only a few dollars but still curious as to your thoughts....

Thanks,

Simon.

I have a copy of Wild Card Miracles by Frank Garcia 1977 First Edition. There are over 30 routines with contributions along with Frank Garcia from Dai Vernon, Slydini, Bert Allerton, Francis Carlyle, Ron Frost, Derek Dingle, Larry Jennings, Mike Skinner, Ricky Jay, Bobby Baxter, John Fedko, Flip Hallema, Fred Kaps, Bobby Baxter, Shigeo Takagi, Tom Ogden, Frank Thompson, Peter Kane, Jos. Bema. 
And you know I only use one routine from Frank Garcia because it's straight forward and you seemingly show both sides of all of the cards.
Its a book worth trying to find if you want to learn a lot about Wild Card. Maybe there is an e-book.

You can get Frank Garcia's Wild Card Miracles book for $20 from Penguin Magic or Vanishing Inc, or as a pdf download from library.com for $8.

I have the book myself and keep threatening to work through some of the many other presentations ... but somehow I always find myself sticking to Frank's original routine.

For that price, you can't go too far wrong.  Besides, in my experience, anything put out with Racherbaumer's name on it is worth paying attention to.

Nice to see Peter Kane copping a mention. Very generous.

A fair bit of mumbling here, but it’s worth a look. The magazine Riser refers to wasn’t English, it was “Hugard’s Magic Monthly”.
