"Edward G. Brown was one of England's past masters of innovative card magic. Various circumstances have caused him also to be one of its most unjustly forgotten. Paul Gordon's admirable effort to unearth what little can be known of Brown and his inventions, and to assay the lasting effects of his card magic on that which came after, is a boon to all who enjoy exquisite thinking in sleight-of-hand entertainment." - Stephen Minch --Letter
"I remember purchasing and reading "The Card Magic of Edward G. Brown" when I was a teenager and it was amazing to me how much attention to detail Mr. Brown gave his work and how thoroughly he thought about his magic. It's more than thirty years later and I still feel Mr. Brown's influences affecting my magic. Equally amazing is that I have never read anything else about this man or his work. Paul Gordon has done the world of magic a tremendous service by sharing his labour of love. Thank you Paul." - John Carney --Letter
"Paul Gordon's biography, with its additional Brown material, is a welcome companion to Trevor Hall's book!" --Letter
