The Man With $1.98 HandsKnockout mental magic fills one large chapter in this book. Stage magic fills another chapter including an easy and very effective newspaper tear. Three other chapters contain novel close-up magic, coins, cards, cups and balls and various other close-up stunts. All of John’s magic reflects his own unusual approach to magic. The effects are strong, and the methods, for the most part, are easy.
