Details: Lorayne: The Classic Collection 2: Omissions, Additions, Decisions, Revisions, Upgradings and Updatings for and of Reputation-Makers, Rim Shots & Afterthoughts.

The response to LORAYNE: THE CLASSIC COLLECTION, VOL. 1 was, is, overwhelming. Says Harry, “I’m pleasantly surprised and gratified. I originally felt that the many who had the original books (from the 1960s) wouldn’t buy the re-written ‘collection.’ I was, obviously, wrong.”

There’s a reason for the success of any HARRY LORAYNE book. In the magic world Harry Lorayne is considered to be the best writer/ teacher of, entertainer with, playing cards.
Harry Lorayne is a consummate teacher, and quite possibly the very best of all the marvelous writers in the annals of the art. (Tom Daugherty)
Mr. Lorayne’s exalted reputation began with Close-Up Card Magic (1962); it became an instant classic. That reputation grew in leaps and bounds with each succeeding book. What you have in your hands right now is his rewrite, his additions, revisions, updating/ upgrading of his classic books of the early 1970s—REPUTATION-MAKERS, RIM SHOTS and AFTERTHOUGHTS.
Harry says, “So many times I’ve been asked to re-write and update these books, books which people refer to as ‘classics.’ (Reason for the title.) So, here they are, all in one volume. I know that those who have one or more of the originals will still welcome this, and those who don’t have the originals are, in the opinion of many, in for one heck of a treat.
“As I started to relax, after completing Volume 1, the requests, the demands, for me to do Volume 2 grew and grew. Well, I let myself get talked into it. As I started to write, I thought, ‘What in the world have I gotten myself into? This is just too much work!’ But, once started, there was no way I could be stopped! I’m so pleased with the end result.”
A few, of so many, unsolicited testimonials: Buy it, read it, learn it, love it, live it. That encapsulates my feelings about ALL of Harry Lorayne’s work. (Vlad)
If you’re going to learn and be inspired from/ by anyone—learn from, be inspired by, the best there is! Harry Lorayne IS the BEST! (Paul Gordon)
Harry, you set the bar for me in terms of what was possible and the standard to reach as far as excellence is concerned. (Michael Vincent)
The best advice I can give is—buy everything that Harry Lorayne puts out. (Rimbaud)
In my opinion the best card work ever assembled is Harry Lorayne’s work—every one of his tricks is a worker. (Steve Conner)
Harry. You’re one of the greatest entertainers with a deck of cards I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen a lot of magic in my lifetime. Your books are great—a great investment in learning commercial card magic. (Glenn Bishop)
Pound for pound you have put out more top notch, usable material than any other magician. (Gary Freed)
You do so much more than so many others combined. I would have given up magic if not for your books. You set the standard of how a magic book could and should be written. (Gerald Ochoa)
You truly are the greatest writer and teacher in magic—ever. (Jeremy Lasky)
I delved into the REAL work with your books, Harry. (Paul Lelekis)
I would never trade the learning curve I have received by reading Harry Lorayne’s works. (Nick Lewin—The Linking Ring magazine)
Most of your stuff blows other magicians away: they look at me as if I’ve found the Holy Grail. (Robert E. Kimball)
Any student of Harry Lorayne’s books will become a fantastic magician. Harry teaches MAGIC, not tricks, and very powerful magic indeed. (Grandpa Chet)
The magic community needs more Harry Loraynes—we have all learned from Harry. (Vinny)
Yours are the greatest books on card magic. Your concise instructions and insights are what truly make you the Best Teacher of card magic Ever. (Nick Macri)
