Simply Simon by Simon Aronson

(c. 1995) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

Details: Simon’s biggest book to date, exploring classic themes such as the Birthday diary (with the full year Calendar Card), a hefty chapter on the memorized deck (including Simon’s essay on the Open Index, Past, Present and Future, and his famous Everybody’s Lazy). In This Side Up, a spectator-signed card literally transforms into an Instruction card that has been in full sight the entire time. The triple prediction Point Spread will fool the most sophisticated mathematician – yet it’s entirely self-working.

For those who want intriguing sleight-of-hand miracles, there’s the Aronson Stripout, and the card stacking demonstrations Simple Double Duke and Stack in Trade. And a diabolical new tool: the Cross Index Index. Plus Child’s Play, the Trained Deck, and Fate…and so much more!
