The dust cover notes read:
This book gives directions for a number of conjuring tricks which depend on skill rather than costly apparatus for their magical effect, They include examples of mind-reading, escapology, ventriloquism and stage illusions, and each section of the book is devoted to a particular type of act.
The success of any show depends on co-ordinating the movements with the patter. It is important that the two should be practised together, so an outline script is provided with each trick.
