    Organic Book Recommendations

    Any recommendation for books that teach organic magic, or tricks that use everyday objects (don't use cards (and keep coins to a minimum)). (Mostly cause I am bored due to all the free-time (more practice at least) and I'm just interested at a part of magic I ain't really looked at yet)...

    What magic books should I get? (Beginner)

    Hi guys. I started doing magic less than 2 months ago. I have bought some tricks from theory 11, and I just enjoy it so much. But to my question, what books should I get in order to learn basic magic, particularly sleight of hand, card tricks, coin tricks, and some other basic tricks like cups...

    Best intermediate to advanced card magic book that is no more than 25 dollars?

    I have been doing card magic on and off for around 8 years now and I have studied books such as Expert at the card table and Royal road to card magic almost completely front to back. I am looking for a bit more of a challenging book that has much more advanced and difficult sleights. Only...

    Best Non-Magic Trick Magic Book?

    Hi everyone, THIS IS MY FIRST EVER POST! I recently finished reading Maximum Entertainment 2.0 by Ken Weber, and loved it. I am looking for similar magic theory books, where magic tricks can be taught, but it is not the focus. I found it very interesting about how to be your own director...

    How can I get the most from magic books?

    TL;DR I want to get the most from magic books as I think I'm going about using them wrong and I'm not finding them very helpful. So I've been doing magic for a few years now and I like to think myself as reasonably experienced. When I work I do close up, mainly with cards. And I've dabbled...

    Book Recommendations

    With the work I am doing at the moment, I get quite a large amount of private down time, which has been an absolutely wonderful opportunity to make my way through books. I have read my way through all the so called "requirements" (RRTCM, EATCT, CC, Lepaul etc.) I'm looking for something that's...

    Resources for Magicians in Warsaw?

    So I've scouted the internet endlessly for the past few days, and I know this may be a long shot; I am going to be staying close to Warsaw for the next few weeks, and was wondering if anybody knows of any magic shops in the city. (or nearby) If not specifically a magic shop, then ideally...

    Mentalism books for beginners.

    A couple of years ago, I was in London and saw a group of magicians who were travelling around and performing. Before this, I had never had much experience of magic, but I was captivated by what I saw. This inspired me to try my hand at magic. Originally, I tried flourishes, flicks and springs...

    Success Story: Overcoming Performance Anxiety

    I thought it'd be cool to share a small but significant victory in my journey to become more comfortable performing magic for people. I'm typically a very social outgoing person, but for some reason I'm really insecure about showing my magic to people. I've posted several threads on this topic...

    Royal Road To Card Magic Common Misprint?

    After scrutinising RRCM, I've noticed that almost always, the book says "fight hand" instead of "right hand". I would've waved it off as a typographical error, but it kept coming up! Is there a reason the right hand is called the 'fight' hand?

    Joshua Jay's Magic: The Complete Course

    How would you rate Magic: The Complete Course? Is it good? What level would you recommend it for? Does it focus on cards only, or different types of close-up tricks? Are the tricks thoroughly explained and taught? Is each sleight explained? How many pages is the book? Are there any tricks that...

    Magic History Books

    Just was looking for more books to read. I'm looking for either books about magic history or old magic books that are more interesting because of the time they were written rather than the methods described inside. Books I already have: -Magic 1400s-1950s -Magic Stage Illusions, Special...
