Dobsons Choice Straight from the Underground and Into Your Repertoire
For any performer, professional or amateur, this book is (as Ken Brooke would have said) Gold Dust. The 13 tricks are superbly created and honed to perfection by Wayne himself during countless performances; on stage. cabaret, his TV series, TV guest appearances, close-up, lectures and social events.
Wayne's choice of Stephen Tucker to put his thoughts and actions onto paper was truly inspired because each and every one of the 13 items is written with great clarity. Thanks in part to the two-column layout and intriguing balance between black, white and grey printing. The remarkable thing to me Is the total elimination of sleights to achieve the effects, without any loss of effect or entertainment. Volume 1
Of the 13 Items there are 10 card tricks of Infinite variety, including one feature 'stand up' as used by Wayne over many years at top venues around the world. The three remaining items feature coins, 'objects' and borrowed ring. Volume 3
Wayne Dobson adds yet another masterpiece to his celebrated book series "Dobson's Choice". Much like the first two volumes, Wayne brings you thirteen of his best effects in volume three. His unique sense of humor, and clear instructions make reading through the effects and routines a breeze. You not only get the routines and effects themselves, but Wayne's perspective on everything from a specific move in an effect, to the proper use for an entire routine.
Much of the material in this book can be injected right into a magicians act, with little or no modification. The effects themselves have been simplified to remove the difficult sleights and complications that intimidate some magicians. These routines have been honed to perfection over thousands of performances. This stuff is sound workable material.
