Simply Simon by Simon Aronson - Book
Simon’s biggest book to date, exploring classic themes such as the Birthday diary (with the full year Calendar Card), a hefty chapter on the memorized deck (including Simon’s essay on the Open Index, Past, Present and Future, and his famous Everybody’s Lazy). In This Side Up, a spectator-signed card literally transforms into an Instruction card that has been in full sight the entire time. The triple prediction Point Spread will fool the most sophisticated mathematician – yet it’s entirely self-working.
Simply Simon is the third hardcover book by Simon Aronson, but it’s the favored volume by most memorized deck practitioners. This book has several of the most complex but amazing memorized deck principles fully explained. The trick “Everybody’s Lazy” is arguably the finest use of a memorized deck in print, and it’s here. So is “Past, Present, Future,” another card trick with an incredible plot line.The book is densely packed with solid material, and the great thing about all the memorized deck effects in this book is that they are stack-independent. This means that you can use any known stack to perform the effects. You are not locked into Aronson stack here, but be aware that none of the basics of the memorized deck are explained here. It is assumed that you have already memorized a stack. If you're looking to get started with memorized deck magic we highly recommend Simon Aronson's collected early works Bound to Please.
For those who want intriguing sleight-of-hand miracles, there’s the Aronson Strip-Out, and the card stacking demonstrations Simple Double Duke and Stack in Trade. And a diabolical new tool: the Cross Index Index. Plus Child’s Play, the Trained Deck, and Fate...and so much more! 308 pages
