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, and while I am told that I do a mean snap change, my springs are clunky, my flicks flutter to the ground and any flourishes I attempt result in me on the floor gathering my cards. After seeing my own ineptitude (which was not at all surprising, given my general lack of coordination), I decided I wanted to try mentalism, as it was more appealing and I am more mentally strong than physically. From reading other threads on the forum, I believe that the sort of thing I am interested in is sometimes called pure mentalism (as opposed to mental magic). Cold reading is also something I am interested in. I am aware that it takes years of study to achieve what you see from performers, and that YouTube isn't the place to learn, so I was wondering if anyone has any book recommendations for those new to the subject.
