    How people view magic

    I’m making a comedy video about how laypeople think when they hear magic terms. Unfortunately I can only come up with two; practicing magic and mind reading/mentalism. I need one or two more magic terms that have a double meaning. Any thoughts?

    Magic Books translated in French

    I have a little cousin in France who recently got into magic but he lives about 4-6 hours away from the nearest magic store (in Paris) so his resources are limited. He doesn’t know any English, and I’ve got a lot of good books he can use but they’re in English. Any way I can find some of these...

    Best Way to Get a Break under Two Cards

    Many magicians preach getting a break before double lifts instead of doing push-off doubles or strike doubles... At least, the ones I know.

    There are many channels out there on YouTube which teach magic, but obviously they won't teach everything they know for free. Some sleights are unclear on YouTube videos, and need to be more comprehensively explained and taught; some tricks can only be revealed by buying it from the creator etc...
