Destination Zero by John Bannon
Fasten your seatbelt.
You are travelling to a special province in the world of magic: Self-working card magic. Deceptive, automatic, and turbo-charged.
Join John Bannon on a twenty-five stop wide-ranging tour of self-working card magic. Not your typical non-sleight-of-hand tricks, Bannon has thoroughly analyzed these effects and backed up subtle principles with the careful, layered construction he is known for.
Anyone can cobble together a couple of principles and call it a "trick." Bannon looks for synergies and leverages the method as much as possible. His objective: "One plus one should equal three-or more. Otherwise, why bother?"
You get the trick and you get Bannon talking about the trick, all in his precise, but easy-to-read style. The perfect travel companion on this exciting journey.
All with regular cards, without gaffs, crimps, pencil dots, "punches," or marks. These highly-refined constructions will change the way you think about self-working card magic.
It's not just the destination, it's the journey. Enjoy the ride.
Let's roll ...

"These effects are not mathematical monstrosities; rather, they are cleverly constructed card tricks that anyone can do. If you want to give your fingers a rest and add some self-working material to your repertoire, then John Bannon’s Destination Zero is a good place to start " -Peter Duffie, Magic Magazine
