Book Synopsis
After investigating the Mene-Tekel deck Chris Wardle turned his attention to the most famous trick deck in history. But no, this is not a book of tricks with a Svengali deck. He turns the deck on its head then takes the principle to other effects that do not for the most part use playing cards and often combines it with other principles. The result is an interesting collection of effects that earned the book a five star rating by a reviewer on Lybrary.com. These are routines that will make you think. If 'mental magic' is your thing you'll enjoy the author's creations.

PLEASE NOTE, this book is now also included within the larger book, "Investigations: The Chris Wardle Trilogy" also available from The Book Patch.

About The Author
Author bio image
Chris Wardle (M.I.M.C. Gold Star) has created and shared routines with over a dozen magic magazines over the years (including a One Man Parade in The Linking Ring). His first three booklets, Ten Mysteries, Investigating The Mene-Tekel Deck and Beyond Svengali (this one) were originally published by PH Marketing in the U.K.

Magical Wonders published his Zodiac Principle booklet and his largest collection Magic For Everyone was published in 2006 and contained over 60 effects. His book Mathomagic was released generally and aimed at teachers and parents to encourage their children with math. Whilst an enthusiastic and creative magician Chris is a teacher by profession and so was perfectly suited to write the latter book.

He was the magic consultant for Nick Warburton’s 2006 Edinburgh Fringe production of Dr. Faustus and is one of Geoffrey Durham’s favorite magic creators. Geoffrey has used creations from Chris both in his stage shows and TV appearances. He has marketed effects through Practical Magic in the U.K. and Sam Dalal in India and as a student wrote comedy sketches for British TV comedy shows. He is also the inventor of the clever dual magic square which can be seen on his web site.
