Professional Secrets by Geoffrey Durham. A book which repays revisiting on a regular basis to remember what performing magic is all about. Also contains some great magic. A classic.

This takes some thought. . .

I have several of the books on the list, and thought of one not on there: Traveler's Journal by T. Everett Bookings III. A great little book for bizarre stuff. One of my favorites this past year.

But after taking a day to consider it, for being most useful, being consulted most often and having traveled the most miles with me, I have to cast my vote for Curtis Kam's Pocketbook.
What would Wavy do?

This is a comment rather than a vote. Ian Keable's book is still listed twice under two titles as if it were two different books. Ian only has one book out - it's called: Stand Up - A Professional Guide to Comedy Magic.
