Closely Guarded Secrets contains some of my favorite routines, including The Luckiest Cards in Las Vegas (one of the strongest – and easiest – memdeck routines in my repertoire).  The material is geared toward the intermediate to advanced. Beginners may want to start with The Trick that Lance Burton Showed Me or Sideswiped Meets the Bammo Deck Walloper. Don't overlook A Trick with the Bedwell Control; it's easy and will fool anybody.

This ebook offers unparalleled instruction by allowing text, photographs, and video to do what they do best; it can also be printed out for taking notes or adding to your bookshelf collection.

Each routine is described in complete detail in Michael Close’s clear, easy-to-read style. It’s almost like having private lessons with Michael Close.
