"The part of this book that really caught my eye was Lovell’s emphasis on what we magicians would call the presentational aspects of each of these bets."
Antonio M. Cabral, M-U-M Magazine 2/27/2015

"It’s not much of a leap to take these ideas and use them to enhance your magic routines. Maybe you won’t use the bets to win a beer or a fiver, but you can use these to make your audience love you and ask for more. "
Fred Rosenbaum, Linking Ring Magazine 3/3/2015
