probably learned more from trick tutorials on YouTube
The problem with YouTube is that a lot of the teaching is bad. I often can tell people who have learned from YouTube because they hold the deck wrong (much more closed handling and often too deep), focus too much on their hands and tend to significant tells when they are doing a sleight (e.g. pausing right before it or looking down or being tense).
As @RealityOne said, Card College is the way to go, though it is quite a lot more expensive).thanks for all the reviews everyone i have decided to just read through the "Royal Road To Card Magic" from cover to cover let me know if you have any other suggestions Thanks!.
Skip around.Should i read royal road to card magic from beginning to end or should i skip around, I got the book about a week ago and have been skipping around but havent learned much and i was wondering if i should just read the entire book from beginning to end.
You will find out which approach works for you eventually, but you won't find any approach unless you start.
Thanks for saying this.Respectfully beg to differ. The Royal Road was specifically designed to be a systematic course in card magic, beginning with indispensable fundamentals, and building to more advanced techniques, all towards the ultimate goal of being an accomplished card magician. You wouldn't build a house by erecting only part of the foundation and then jumping to the first and/or second floor or roof of the structure. Just my opinion...
