When Diverting Card Magic was first published Fred Robinson had this to say in Pabular- "In Part 1 the reader is shown how to keep the eyes of the spectator away from his hands at the moment the vital sleight is being made. This information is worth many times the price of the book. It is impossible to estimate its value, particulary to the beginner, who will, for the first time, have access to the real secret enabling him to perform basic sleights in an indetectable manner. Even the most enlightened card worker will find considerable food for thought in this chapter. In Part 2 the author gives his personal methods for twelve effects. The object of this chapter is to provide further examples of how misdirection is utilised in each trick. In short, you are told exactly HOW TO DO the tricks in a way that will ensure the 'everything you do will appear ordinary' thus ensuring that the result will be 'extra-ordinary'. That is magic. To sum up, it is my personal opinion that 'Diverting Card Magic' is one of the most important texts on magic ever to appear."
