Did you ever notice how so many "self working" tricks look like self working tricks?
The truth is, in most cases, you've got to have some moves or all you get is... procedures. This is an 81 page e-book of magic that is easy to do but looks like much harder sleight of hand. We call them AAM's (Almost a Move) because they aren't really sleight of hand. This is stuff you can do. The major technique in this book consists of 6 variations of the ancient cut-deeper force but this version stands it on its ear. Take a look at the video for just one example. We also have some other easy replacements for normally difficult moves. Every new handling includes a video example to make everything even easier to learn.
But what the book is mostly about is the 12 entertaining tricks. We teach the moves, and then we show how they can be used by developing complete, fully scripted routines exploring the creative process and suggestions for making them yours.
12 Fun Routines
The Nice Deck
A deck that delivers Aces when asked and finally a Royal Flush climax. If you can turn over cards you can do the Riffle Deeper.
The Great Houdini Napkin Escape
Really different, a card penetration with a surprise 8 ball production.
The Joker changes to the spectator's selection in their hand. Uses the easy P-Top switch - no double lift required.
Relax and Kickback
A card magically bounces back. Two versions of sleight free visual magic.
I'm Never Wrong Twice
The laughs keep coming as the magician continues to fail determining the selection until the magical surprise climax.
This is a full presentation piece suitable for a closer. Lot's of spectator involvement as they become actors in a play and bring the magic to the production themselves. We include the artwork so you can print your own props.

"Your book certainly breaks new ground. The moves you created are great additions to any magician's toolbox and really are deceptive. The routines range from good to great. There are one or two that I will be trying out in my performances. I especially like a number of the presentations you've created as well." - Marc DeSuza
"Marv Long has developed twelve delightful effects utilizing new handlings of The Cut-Deeper Force. You will learn some effective card magic without resorting to difficult sleight of hand and without the magic having the appearance of being a mathematical monstrosity. In addition, each effect is fully scripted. Highly recommended! - John Luka
"The riffle deeper move is brilliant! To control a freely selected card while forcing another (and without really doing anything) made me smile. The riffle deeper reverse control is beautiful. I will be adding this and a number of the other moves to my arsenal...I would highly recommend it to any magician."- Rudy Tinoco
"It was a very fun read and it struck me that if I were still teaching magic I would use your book as example of a great book to teach actual magic effects instead of moves and tricks. I enjoyed how it progressed from your basic Riffle Deeper "almost moves" to teaching you effects to do with the moves, and then to some more complicated effects done by adding other easy/basic moves. All the while tying everything together in compelling effects and explaining your own thinking about how the effect was developed.This creative process is something that most books neglect and I find it invaluable in improving my magic." - Norm Cattell
