After many years of contributing his creations to magic magazines Bill Miesel decided to write his first book that features his brand of card magic. The forward of the book explains his mission:
“The most important element of any magical effect is its entertainment value. Every one of these effects is designed to entertain someone. Most of them should prove entertaining to either a lay audience or and audience composed of magicians. Some are designed basically to be performed before magicians because of their surprise endings to familiar effects. A few may prove to be entertaining to the performer himself but may be lost on an audience. I feel that a couple of these are worthwhile it they amuse someone and provide inspiration, which they will, to others.”
