Hi all, Since it’s time for me to ask some advice, after some months lurking around, I thought it would be better to introduce myself first a little bit. I’m Nick, a 30 year old beginner, working on cards for about 10 months now. After seeing a performance of Lennart Green on youtube I decided I wanted to give magic a try, and boy, I was hooked. Fulltime accountant and part time bartender, wich means I don’t have much time to practice, but I’m getting there. Next month will be my last month working in the bar, so it’s time to up my magic after march. Resources I currently own: - RRTCM - Expert Card Technique - Mnemonica by Juan Tamariz - Lessons in card Mastery by Darwin Ortiz (first book I bought, I know, big mistake. After reading the first pages I realised this was way to advanced and immediately ordered RRTCM) - Strong Magic by Darwin Ortiz After focusing on cards for all this time I’m getting tired of them, so it’s time to explore other directions. I’m limiting myself to 3 books to buy in 2018 and this is where I need your advice. Book nr. 1 will be The Magic Rainbow by Tamariz. (Once it’s released in English) Book nr. 2: I want a book that covers all, so I’m gonna with Tarbell for this. For book number 3 I’m looking for the best resource that covers Paper balls over Head. It’s in ‘Tarbell’, but I’m looking at ‘The Best of Slydini’ for this. The reason I’m looking at ‘The Best of Slydini’ is because of the valuable pointers about misdirection I might learn from this book. I’m just worried that this book will be to advanced for me. I’d love to hear your thoughts about this, and maybe some suggestions/alternatives you guys might have to offer. Thanks in advance!
