It has influenced some of the world's greatest magicians.
It temporarily put a World War on hold.
The odds of it actually happening are staggering.

Best of All Worlds is not just a book about a "Magic Trick". It is an extensive, in-depth look at what Dai Vernon called "the card trick of the century."

Chronicling the creative evolution of this single magical effect over seven decades, Best of All Worlds brings the history and challenges of Out of This World to light. It is a unique collection of over thirty routines -- some old, some new, some never before seen in print -- submitted by the world's leading magicians. In addition to their personal performances, the contributors have given insight into and musings about how this classic effect has influenced their magic.

Filled with history, stories, and, most of all, magic, Best of All Worlds pays tribute to one of the greatest card tricks of all time: Paul Curry's classic card effect Out of This World.
