Good book(s) on magic theory

Discussion in 'Product Questions and Reviews' started by DrGonzo, Apr 27, 2009.

  1. What are some good books on magic theory? I have read Royal Road to Card Magic, that is an excelent book. But I was looking for something on theory in general. I have also read/own Expert at the Card Table, and a few other Hugard books. I am in need of some new reading material, but not sure where to start.

    Thanks.

  4. I've heard that "Five Points in Magic" by Juan Tamariz is an excellent choice when it comes to theory. Can't really give you a personal opinion though as i don't own a copy of it yet.

    Here are some that helped me immensely (and really changed my perception of how magic ought to be performed):

    Absolute Magic -- by Derren Brown
    Strong Magic -- by Darwin Ortiz
    Designing Miracle -- by Darwin Ortiz
    The Magic of Ascanio -- compiled and written by Jesus Etcheverry
    The Magic Way by Juan Tamariz
