"Artful Deceptions is a petite but attractively produced book. Half of the routines have been published previously in one form or another but Allan has updated them for inclusion here. It’s not a book for those interested in the latest sleight of hand techniques or currently trending effects. However, it does contain solid routines for classic plots using techniques you probably already know. It’s a good introduction to the magic of Allan Zola Kronzek who teaches the tricks well and gives all the presentational touches that make a difference. If you’re looking for material you can go out and try fairly quickly, Artful Deceptions is certainly worth your time." -David Britland, Genii Magazine
"I think you will enjoy reading this book, as well as performing several of the effects taught within." -Marc DeSouza, M-U-M Magazine
"Overall I was pleased with Artful Deceptions. Its an easy read with solid routines."
