Book Synopsis
Three books in one, "Investgating the Mene Tekel Deck", "Beyond Svengali" and "Ten Mysteries now back in print under the same cover. The bulk of this compilation revolves around two easy to make gaffed decks, the lesser known Mene Tekel deck and it's big brother the Svengali. If you ever wondered what to do with a Mene Tekel deck here's plenty.

As for the Svengali, you are taken beyond normal Svengali deck tricks. Apart from turning the principle on it's head and combining it with others a number of these routines don't even use playing cards! To round things off, Chris's first booklet "Ten Mysteries" completes this collection, a collection of close up and stand up routines.

The book includes guest contributions from Paul Hallas, Mark Elsdon, Arun Bonerjee and Tom Johnston. All in all thirty eight routines are included. Chris's investigations into these principles will inspire you.

About The Author
Author bio image
Chris Wardle (M.I.M.C. Gold Star) has created and shared routines with over a dozen magic magazines over the years (including a One Man Parade in The Linking Ring). His first three booklets, Ten Mysteries, Investigating The Mene-Tekel Deck and Beyond Svengali were published by PH Marketing in the U.K and have been compiled under one cover here for a new generation of magicians. Magical Wonders published his Zodiac Principle booklet and his largest collection Magic For Everyone was published in 2006 and contained over 60 effects. His book Mathomagic was released generally and aimed at teachers and parents to encourage their children with math. Whilst an enthusiastic and creative magician Chris is a teacher by profession and so was perfectly suited to write the latter book.

He was the magic consultant for Nick Warburton’s 2006 Edinburgh Fringe production of Dr. Faustus and is one of Geoffrey Durham’s favorite magic creators. Geoffrey has used creations from Chris both in his stage shows and TV appearances. He has marketed effects through Practical Magic in the U.K. and Sam Dalal in India and as a student wrote comedy sketches for British TV comedy shows. He is also the inventor of the clever dual magic square which can be seen on his web site.
