Although written years ago, still among the BEST texts you can buy to learn Sleight of Hand Magic with ordinary playing cards.

Very good book for someone new to card tricks. Starts with basics, but you can very quickly begin doing impressive tricks.

Recommended to me by professionals, it's clear why this is a key text for those starting out in card magic. Excellent.

I have only just started to learn card magic and after reading numerous recommendations have included this book in my slowly growing library. To get you started it is a good book, personnaly I prefered Jean Hubbards Card Manipluations purely for variety of tricks. Variety is the only place I feel this book lets itself down. It is well written, has good diagrams and (as long as hold cards at same time) easy to follow and do. I just wish it would show me a bigger variety of tricks that aren't just "pick a card, any card" All books seem to thrust this one in your face, I am sure this is the most popular type of trick, however I would want more variety in my rotuine than this book gives. Although saying that it does teach enough sleights for you to be able to use your own thoughts to come up with other variety of tricks. As a newbie to card magic I do feel this is a good starting place to get you hooked (I am just plucking up the courage to learn from Marlo's writting)It is simple enough to acheive a goal and impress people with your skills. It is a good starting place to learn how to move hands to allow you to move to the next level.
