If you have a friend or family member showing an interest in Magic, this book is a great start. It is a mixture of techniques and routines to get you started.
It covers a large range of different magic: Coin, Card, Phone magic, Mentalism and silk productions, together with tips and guides for different magic shows, such as children's parties and office tricks.
The included DVD is a valuable addition giving the visual learner a chance to see the routines performed. The combination of book and DVD for the price is an absolute bargain!
I have to agree with some of the other reviewers this book is the kind of book that should be only available in magic suppliers - to be able to find a bargain like this out in the wild without the effort of searching the shelves of your magic supplier is MAGIC!
