It's a pity that we couldn't have a sort of secret ballot for this and have a grand announcement. Well my friends, first off....


Congratulations to Luca Volpe, the winner of the Magic Café 2012 Book of the Year Award.

Second, a big thank you to all of the authors who really made 2012 a wonderful year for books!

Third, thank you all who participated this year! I hope that the thread has made you aware of a great book and that it will find an honored place in your working library!

The voting is done and again a big congratulations to Luca Volpe!

Namaste,
Vlad

PS: It is 31 January where I live Smile

PPS: In the final total, Basic Training: The Book received another vote. Just wanted you to know Jamie that you weren't forgotten! Smile

There was an instance of Emotional Mentalism being voted on twice by the same member. The admins removed the post and I removed the vote. A few votes unfortunately didn't count because of the minimum post limit requirement.

I have to confess I was surprised by the results - not taking anything away from Luca - but what I mean is that I had expected the Sankey books for instance to figure a bit more prominently in the voting as there was a lot of discussion last year in which members felt that it should be included. That led to dropping the no-compilation rule that had been in place in prior years.

While I am glad we have a winner this year, I still am saddened that last year turned out the way it did. Woody Aragon's A Book in English was the winner but the trolls and banned members forced me to close the award. I am thankful that this year we avoided that.

Peo, if you are reading this, I think this is the first time a book on mentalism has won the award but I am not certain.

Namaste,
Vlad
