REVIEWS For Volume 10 of Semi-Automatic Card Tricks:
“Whether you’re a newcomer or experienced performer, there are lessons to be learned on every page. After 10 volumes and 23 years of the SACT series, you might think things are winding down, but they are in fact getting better with age.” John Guastaferro (author of One Degree, and book reviewer for Genii magazine), March 2016 Genii.
“The must-have magic book list for 2016 just got a little longer. After a ten-year hiatus, Steve Beam has published two more books in his stellar Semi-Automatic Card Tricks series. Most magic books are technical manuals that need to be waded through to learn a nugget or two of good stuff. In comparison, Beam’s books have a ton of good stuff woven into hilariously well-crafted writing. I couldn’t wait to see the next effect or read the next sentence.” Rolando Santos, former president of the IBM and current book reviewer in the June 2016 issue of The Linking Ring.
