Bound to Please
Simons collected early works, compiled in one volume. Contains the complete texts of his first three books, The Card Ideas of Simon Aronson (1978), A Stack to Remember (1979) and Shuffle-bored (1980). Includes Red See Passover, Simons Favorite Card Trick, Mis-mate, Simons underground treatise on the memorized deck principles (that started the current wave of memorized miracles), an entire chapter on subtle uses of the advertising card, Under Cover Four Play, Ad-Jacent, and the original presentation of the Aronson stack (with three different poker deals, a perfect bridge hand, spelling combinations, a blackjack deal, and more).
Shuffle-bored presents Simons self-working, totally hands-off card miracle without any questions, outs, gaffs, ambiguities or moves and without ever touching the cards the performer announces exactly how many cards are face up, in a spectator freely shuffled deck! plus additional effects published in Kabbala and Hierophant.
