Comments: From the website: "From the title of this book, one would expect magic effects based on analytical principles of mathematics, and you’d be partially correct. However, no knowledge of mathematics is needed to learn and perform any of the routines taught in this book...Not every effect in this book is mathematically based. Four of them, including the first chapter rely on basic sleights and moves. For a little variety, I’ve even included a fabulous coin trick."
