  1. Hey Theory11!!!

    Being a person who doesn`t like to read, i found myself a bit stuck. There a lot of video material to teach you card manipulations, but it seem like it repeating basic technics over an over again. So i started looking for the books. Being a bit stuck with cash don`t want to waste my money, so i`m asking you, what is your MUST HAVE TOP 20????
  2. Top 20? Holy crap that is a lot of material! Are you looking for "Card Magic" like your title say or "Card Manipulation" like your post says?
  3. Sorry English is not my first language. What i had in mind is CARD MAGIC!!!
    Something like S.W.Erdnase "EXPERT AT THE CARD TABLE"
  4. This could just be me but I found Expert at the Card table pretty difficult to learn from at first. Great material in there tho. You can always download a legal pdf copy online to take a look at it. If you are interested in books, also check out TONS of free material there
  5. You may get a lot of the same answers from some people. Here's something I don't think many would say: Dear Mr. Fantasy by John Bannon is excellent.
