There are not enough books featuring "stand-up" card magic. Magicians know the impact and appeal of well-performed close-up card magic, but very few spend time on the card magic for those small platform and living room shows.
De Courcy covers routines with just cards, and also routines that combine cards with other props. Interspersed throughout the book are tips and bits of advice for stand up performers. Lots of great stuff in this book.
