"A gold mine of some of the most important and useful work with cards ever published"
- Louis Faraga
"Serious students of card magic will heatrily welcome the M.I.N.T volumes."
- Jon Rauchenbaumer
"...there is EXCELLENT material in these volumes that very few magicians know and even fewer perform."
- Scott F Guinn
"I think every cardician should study the materials by the real card master-Ed Marlo. Although some of the materials may not suit the taste of the younger generation, the quality of the magic inside the book are realy top-notch."
- Alex Hui
"Ed Marlo was the most prolific creator in the history of card Magic. He had work on pretty much every effect and move with cards. In MINT 1 and 2 you will be in for one hell of a treat as you discover the genius of the man. I can't recommend these volumes enough!"
- John Carey
"...even the most zealous critic would be hard-pressed to ignore the wealth of ideas, sleights, effects, methods, and plots that Marlo bestowed upon us all, and the sea-changes in cardicians' thinking that were caught in Marlo's wake."
- Jamy Ian Swiss
"Marlo's M.I.N.T collections 1 and 2 are jam packed with exactly the kind of material serious magicians whisper about - fiendishly clever, doable in the real world and so obscured by time and inaccessibility that they will still fool the pants off even knowledgable wizards. If you're looking for deepsecrets to power up your card magic, rest assured you can find them in these two books."
- Phill Smith
