Product Description

Published in 1990. Introduction by David Copperfield. 300+ pages, hardbound.

The fastest selling magic book in magic history. Already in it's 15th printing since it's first release in 1990. This book represents the culmination of 10 years in Michael's career during which time he received most of his accolades. Much of the material from that era (the 80's) is here. This book is general close-up magic, with card tricks, money tricks, rubber band effects, The Cups and Balls (beautifully illustrated by a Disney animator), show worksheets and theoretical essays - and so much more.

Inside you'll find the contents to Ammar publications that were out-of-print and difficult to find for years, such as: The command Performance Series, Encore I, Encore II, & Manual of Magic Psychology.

Due to Michael's travel schedule, your book can be autographed, but may not be personalized unless he is available at the time of ordering. We hope you will understand if it arrives signed only.
