http://www.mjmmagic.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_reviews&products_id=6860Why
do card tricks work? How can magicians do astonishing feats of
mathematics mentally? Why do stage "mind-reading" tricks work? As a rule
we simply accept these tricks as "magic," we seldom recognize that they
are really demonstrations of strict laws based on probability, sets,
theory of numbers, topology and other branches of mathematics.

This is the first book-length study of this fascinating branch of
recreational mathematics. Written by one of the foremost experts on
mathematical magic, it summarizes, with considerable historical data and
bibliography, all previous work in this field; it is also a creative
examination of laws and their exemplification, with scores of new
tricks, new insights and new demonstrations. In this volume, for the
first time, dozens of topological tricks are explained and dozens of
manipulation tricks are aligned with mathematical law.

Non-technical, detailed and clear, this volume contains 115 sections
discussing tricks with cards, dice, coins, etc.; topological tricks with
handkerchiefs, cards, etc.; geometrical vanishing effects;
demonstrations with pure numbers; and dozens of other topics. You will
learn how a Moebius strip works, how a Curry square can "prove" that the
whole is not equal to the sum of its parts and lots more.

No skill at sleight-of-hand is needed to perform the more than 500
tricks described. Mathematics guarantees their success, they will work
for anyone. Mathematics Magic and Mystery includes detailed examinations
of laws and their application permits you to create your own problems
and effects.
