After all, the claim is that you can learn […]Read more "The Memory Arts: the art of (stack) memory"
I own both versions of this effect: the one with the smaller booklet (which is pocket sized), and the new, improved one with the slightly larger book. For an educated audience this is a great effect. Are you a math teacher? Then yes, you need this trick. I’ve performed it a few times, and […]Read more "10,000 Decimals of Pi: remember this"
