    Riiidiculous.

    Jason; it's really great to have you on the forums. A lot of us are huge fans of your work; we'd love to see more of what you do and hear about how you think whenever you've the time. Great stuff, man.

    Regarding the riffle shuffle work-- are they 'whole deck' perfect riffle shuffles (i.e. Faro) or are they only controlling the top eight? Either way; stupid impressive. I'm personally interested in looking for alternatives to the Faro and doing a tabled riffle looks more natural and elegant to me.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    RS.

    I've had the total pleasure of seeing some of this in person and can say it's incredible. Jason is 100% a real worker as well as one hell of a technician.

    If you like this kind of material, I cannot recommend his book Confident Deceptions enough. It's really a great look into Jason's repertoire. Also, I should mention that I perform a couple of routines from the book and people LOVE them. Great ideas, great presentations and just fun to perform.

    Thanks guys:) I'm glad everyone likes the book. I'm working on another right now.

    The faro I'm using in the video controls the top 8 easily. With practice you can get a full deck faro. However, I prefer a different technique.

    Well yes. So much good material in this book. "Through and Through" is one of my favorite card tricks EVER and its the perfect closer. Magic which involves the spectator and let him/her FEEL it. The look in their faces after the final penetration is priceless!
    This alone is worth the price of the book. But hold on. There is much more in this book. Not a single filler and something for everyone in my opinion.

    A new book ? Great! What I loved from "Confident Deceptions" beside the effects:
    the crystal clear descriptions and structure, good references, the Patter!, the photos and last but not least, the DVD, showing some of the tricks.
    This is the way a Magic book should look like!

    Incredibly talented and I admit Im jealous (in a positive way of course ;) )!
    Im pretty sure we will hear, see and read more of him in the future.
