Dobson’s Choice 3 – The Final Cut by Wayne Dobson, Stephen Tucker(c. 2004) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Details: Wayne Dobson adds yet another masterpiece to his celebrated book series “Dobson’s Choice”. Much like the first two volumes, Wayne brings you thirteen of his best effects in volume three. His unique sense of humor, and clear instructions make reading through the effects and routines a breeze. You not only get the routines and effects themselves, but Wayne’s perspective on everything from a specific move in an effect, to the proper use for an entire routine.
Much of the material in this book can be injected right into a magicians act, with little or no modification. The effects themselves have been simplified to remove the difficult sleights and complications that intimidate some magicians. These routines have been honed to perfection over thousands of performances. This stuff is sound workable material.
