Wow! Simply wow! I really have no other words for the skills that Richard has. I've seen performances of his many times, but this look into his life shows a dedication and love for cards like you've never witnessed before.

I was blown away that he fought against the need to learn braille and walk with a cane until so late in his life. A blind man who doesn't use a cane and doesn't know braille became one of the greatest card handlers in history (oh, and a Black Belt too. yeah, the blind guy can whoop my ass). I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Richard.
