I've got books 2 and 3. They are _insanely_ good! I think if this guy had wanted to , he could have been the world's most famous magician and blown _everyone_ else out of the water. I've heard that he designed illusions for David Copperfield, Siegfried and Roy, Lance Burton, and lots of other big names. A lot of the stuff in these books is so straightforward, too! Check out "Peanut Butter and Jellyfish" - you levitate the top half of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich . . . now _that_ is original thought! I've never been able to get the McDonald's shake levitation to work, but I'm still trying. It's a really clever method, but it's harder to pull off than it looks. "Leaf" absolutely makes people's jaws drop open in disbelief. You can walk in the woods and do it with a random tree, if you want . . . there one called "Tic Tac" that I didn't see mentioned earlier in the thread where a dime penetrates into a Tic-Tac box. This one is really, really awesome. The "Hot Chocolate" really is as good as it sounds. I always carry a folded Hershey wrapper in my wallet, now.

Just to update everyone, all the books are back in print and should be available from your local magic shop or online dealer.

Been out of magic professionaly for about 18 years now and am a hobbyist only. I love seeing how much pleasure everyone gets out of the AoA series. Anyone who did magic in the 70's remembers their first experience with Paul Harris material and how you realized that something new, fresh and amazing had been given to you.Though I have been a comedian now for almost 20 years and have been on numerous TV shows performing etc. One of my proudest accomplishments is having an original trick published in AoA. I won't tell you which one but if you have read every part of every trick thouroughly and look at my Café name you could figure it out.Anyone who has too much time on their hands and figures it out can PM me and I'll tell you the story of how I ended up there. You might find it interesting.

Great books but Paul has some new DVD's coming out or may be out already. I learn from and enjoy DVD's so much better.

They are truly fine books.

Las Vegas Leaper is one of my favoites following up with Big Time Leaper.

Just start with volume 1 and get all 3.
