In The Art of Switching Decks, Roberto Giobbi, the world-renowned author of Card College and other modern classics of card magic, teaches dozens of methods for imperceptibly switching decks. More important, he shows that it isn't difficult manipulation that makes these switches totally deceptive--rather, it's psychological principles: principles that allow the reader to apply and modify deck switching techniques to suit any circumstance.
All this is accomplished without the use of special gimmicks or apparatus. The only things required to do these professional switches are decks of cards and your pockets. And along the way, Giobbi explains some very strong card magic.
