This book explains in detail the true, tried and tested card control methods (basic moves & gaffs) that professional magicians use in real performance situations --- "the real stuff, not the fluff".

While performing for the big money and a regular audience, professionals don't leave much to chance. The working conditions, whether it's an inside or outside environment, may cause sweaty hands (too hot & humid), stiff fingers (too cold) or dry hands (overly warm). These conditions are anticipated by simplifying a routine for real-world applications / preventions, such as the use of gaff cards as utility devices.

The MODULE of MOVES system developed by the author will bring your card magic to the next level with clear and concise instructions on the basic moves and utility gaffs needed for creating real-world card magic.
