In the author’s own words:


The "Any Card at Any Number" plot is one of the premier and most complex plots in all of card magic. Every aspect of this plot intrigues me. I was naturally
drawn to it, much like I was drawn to the "Barehanded Matrix" plot.  Both are simple in concept, intricate in method, and absolutely astonishing in performance. Inside of these pages you will find what I believe to be the most amazing presentations and methods to the "Any card at any number" plot ever offered to the magic community.  Not only will you enjoy my original methods, but also the best methods from some of magic's most influential minds. And this is only the beginning... I begin this journey with a thirty three page essay on creativity, in which I offer a systematic approach to creativity and the expression of one's self through the magical arts. I then exemplify this approach as I offer full descriptions of my most guarded solutions to the "Any Card at Any Number" plot, as well as contributed methods that have had a major impact on this plot (some famous and some never-before-published). These solutions include every possible venue and skill level...from impromptu and close-up with a borrowed deck to much more intricate and prepared stage presentations where the performer never even touches the cards!

At the end of the book you will find over 40 other sources cited to serve as a reference point for anyone interested in the "Any card at any number" or "Card
at any number" plots. As you page through this work, you will soon find that I have included many other systems, techniques, and routines that do not deal
with the "Any card at any number" plot. If you are looking for a compilation of "sleighty" routines and moves, this is not the book for you. However, if you are interested in routines and systems that look like real magic... constructed with clever principles designed to fool and entertain the layperson and the fellow magi alike...welcome.
