What would you consider to be the most useful book on card magic?
Erdnase? Kaufman? Andrus? Hugard?

Wonder is very necessary in life. When we're little kids, we're filled with wonder for the world - it's fascinating and miraculous. A lot of people lose that. They become cynical and jaded, especially in modern day society. Magic renews that wonder.

I think my copy of Expert at the Card Table is the only book on card magic I own, lol. So I guess that would have to be my answer.
-A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic.
-It is easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
-The secret impresses no one. The trick you use it for is everything.

See you space cowboy...

Tough question to answer. For me, Marlo in Spades. It's tough because we want useful and yet to be able to do some of the things we like in our most 'useful' book, it would mean we studied more 'useful' books at the beginning to learn the basic card handlings required.

I'd have to second Card College. With a solid foundation of sleights you can make up your own tricks.

One book, the most useful? That's too difficult to say but f I had to pick only one, it would have to be Card College. Even though there are 5 books, they are sequentially numbered with over a thousand pages of card sleights and magic. So, they count as one book IMHO.

Card College is brilliant, but I'd go for Stars Of Magic.Even though it is not a cards-only book, I think the amount of classics(especially Vernon) is way above the rest.

For you, Johnathan Townsend, and in the context of: If you could only have ONE useful book.

I'd go with Hofzinser's Card Conjuring. Lots of ideas and such oblique language that it served as inspiration both for methods and presentations.
