The tricks themselves well… maybe that’ll take you longer than just the one bus ride. It’s a very detailed book despite the fact that it’s not as long as one might have expected. Some great tricks, well explained and relatively easy to learn once you begin to master the basics!

It must be noted that this book was translated from Japanese but I didn’t even really notice until I looked the actual guy up myself.
It’s well diagramed, clearly explained and at 200 words a bit more in-depth than the previous book I noted.
