Michael's modern take on the old school Rising Card trick is great for both the beginner looking to dabble and the lazy professional. Although the method is easy, the effect stands strong.
After accidentally causing the wrong card to rise from the pack the magician magically changes it into the selection. Almost no sleight of hand is required and you end clean with the selection protruding from the middle of the deck.
Michael Stern doesn't mess around. Part of a new generation of close-up magicians, Stern's approach to the art is playful, fun, and in-depth. But don't be mistaken, Stern's talent knows no bounds. His knowledge of magic is far reaching, and boy does it show in his skill.
