I know it's a pretty hard choice.....but which one would you recommend getting first? the magic farm dvd or john bannons new book out? to comment, I have both of their books and videos that were released a while ago....but I'm really torn on this choice. any help would be appreciated...preference wise. what would you go for and why?

Although both a great thinkers and I love many of the routines and ideas they've each come up with, I'd still say that Bannon will probably be your best bet.

You should get both, they are seriously brilliant.
But if you had to choose between one, I'd say go for Bannon

It kind of depends on what you're looking for in the purchase. If you want cool, dare I say commercial, magic you can do at your next restaurant gig, I would recommend the DVD. If you want serious card magic that can't be done for everyone (most need a table, many require dealing/counting of cards, laying cards out in rows, pre-arranged setups, etc.), but that can be INCREDIBLE for the right people, I would recommend Bannon's book.

I would guess that ten years from now you'll be glad you bought the book first. However, I would keep saving and buy the DVD too. Williamson is the man.

Hint: If you order it from Bannon's website, ask him to sign it when you buy it. I forgot to do that, and emailed him about signing it and it was too late, the book had already shipped...
