The Ron Bauer Private Studies monographs are more than "just tricks". Each contains one completely worked out and tested magical exercise that teaches you how to use Direction
. Direction is about Narrative
and the thread of Unity
that holds it together. Misdirection is about Hiding Secrets Out in the Open
. In other words, you not only learn a trick, but what to say and when to say it
, how to do what must be done, and why to do it that way! Most important, every monograph includes valuable insights that you can apply to your magic whether you're a professional or just like to entertain friends and associates.
"From the man who is overconfident enough to be easy prey for any short con!" This is streamlined handling of the short change trick called Hornswoggled. The presentation, however, is quite different from the typical "so this guy said" storytelling approach. You swindle a spectator in the fairest possible way. Then, he unwittingly turns the tables. This version of Hornswoggled actually has a payoff! And, the real money you use won't be suspect, thanks to the principle of "casual handling."
