You want to be successful?

Get up earlier, go to bed later and work harder than your competition and read and learn everything you can about your field of interest whether you agree with it or not.

These are all fantastic Resources:

• Jim Sisti's Magic Menu
• Kirk Charles Book on restaurant magic
• David Stones' excellent book - really covers strolling magic in general not just restaurants
• Zach Waldman. Sorry Christopher.

Zach's effort has real merit. He put a lot of work into his course and it's based on real life experience. It's also very different in one major way - Zach's course is a PROGRAM that if followed to the letter will bring you results. It is highly structured, and each lesson gives you a specific task to perform. When you perform those tasks, you will accomplish your goal. of getting a gig. Zach’s course is also very motivational – look out Tony Robbins!

I’m not a close friend of Zach’s, and this is not hype. I met Zach about 8 years ago when he was doing a gig for a company party I attended. I think we should all talk about what we know about magicians from our OWN first hand experience
Mediocrity is greatly under rated!

Tabman, I agree with you 100%. The only thing I would add is work "smarter" than your competition, and that's where the reading you mentioned would fit in very nicely!

Respectfully,

I know that you've asked for a list of BOOKS outlining material on table hopping, however, there is a two DVD set on the market produced by Kozmomagic.com called Live At The Jailhouse that features some of the greatest strolling magicians in the industry including Paul Green, Garrett Thomas, Kirk Charles, Dan Fleshman, and Kozmo. I seriously would advise picking up this set, as there is a ton of useful information within the discs and the effects performed and explained are worthy of your attention.

Jailhgouse is great. I'd also add to the Zzch course praise, it's really a step-by-step guide.

Jailhouse is the best DVD resource, hands down. It was also very educational watching BOTH the younger and older magicians perform in the same conditions.

The young guys had the best technical chops... but the older guys KILLED.

Agree for Jailhouse dvd, it is really interesting to watch the difference of style between the 2 generations.

Other posts mentioned David Stone and Mark Leveridge dvds : excellent resources too.

You know, Mike Close started out as a table hopper at Illusions Restaurant in Indy. I think he was doing that when I booked him in Nashville for the MC Conclave. I don't know if he has any table hopping books but if he does that would be worth a look too.

Just out of curiosity, Joe, would you consider Dan Fleshman an "older" guy or a "younger" guy?

Hi Eric and everyone else,

Thanks for making this suggestion. I do appear on the set, but I certainly don't think of myself as one of the greatest. Additionally, why not get the set directly from Kozmo? http://www.kozmomagic.com

Respectfully,

Paul Green

Paul may not think of himself as one of the greatest strolling magicians in the industry, but I certainly think of Paul Green as one of the greatest strolling magicians in the industry.

I've worked with Paul many times and he always kills! Professionalism like that only comes from many years of experience. When Paul has something to say about strolling magic... I listen.

I want to make Paul blush further. To anyone looking to add another dvd to their collection 'In the trenches' by Paul Green is very, very good indeed. If you want to supplement your books with dvds, make this one of them.

Agreed--Paul is DA MAN! I learned a TON from him, and count him not only as a friend, but as a mentor and "strolling icon".

I've not seen it in years but I still have my copy, from a time when there was little else on the subject.
Hip hip hooray for Al the Only and the knowledge he shared that helped so many people try something we'd only heard of.

Hi Everyone,

another book, that has not been mentioned is Cashing In With Close-Up Magic by Scott Hollingsworth. It was of major influence on me when I started.

Check it out: http://www.scotthollingsworth.com/products.html

Enjoy the search.

Regards,

Paul Green
