Three Card Monte: Scarne
by John Scarne

Learn the secrets to the most famous con artist trick!

This wonderful book was written in the mid 1930s when illegal gambling was rampant and many people were victims of con games. Like today, the Three Card Monte was played on the streets and some of the wealthiest people of the day were taken in by the technique of the card sharps.

If you are interested in the workings of this classic con game, the legendary gambler magician John Scarne teaches it ALL in this book. The secret signals, the card moves and sleights, the sucker effects, even the slang terms and lingo are covered. Whether you want to learn the moves yourself, or you are just curious about how this con works, this is a great read!
