Looking for a new read,I wouldn't have thought of myself.

Some of my favorite books are:

Page by Page - Patrick Page
Carneycopia
All of vernon's books
All of Eugene Burger books
Leading with Your Head - Gary kurtz
The Magic of Jack McMillen
Tricks by David Ben
All of Bob White's material

Can anyone recommend me a new book from my above favourites?

Thanks

Art of astonishment series has lots of wacky ideas some are very useable. definitive sankey is less wacky but has more useable material. vortex is a great book. more power to you is also a good book

John Carney's BOOK OF SECRETS might offer you hours of pleasure and practice :O)!

I agree, if you cannot pull SOMETHING out of these sets, you're doing something wrong.

If not that I also didn't see card college or Tarbell on the list.

Tarbell and AoA sounds like some very good recommendations!

How much does the complete Tarbell series cost?

Depends on how you buy it... You can get the giant bound book for a little cheaper but I wish I bought the singular volumes. They are a little better with the binding so they won't get beat up quickly.

yes they have great reviews but I did not put them on the list as I currently don't own them so I think it would be unfair to comment.

Routined Manipulation by Ganson in paperback. Great close-up and stage routines by great magicians at popular prices.

If Tarbell is on the table, this is the ONLY way to go.

Totally remastered and beautifully put together for a rediculously low price for the entire collection.

I would also add John Bannon's High Caliber to the list. Everything he has produced since Dear Mr Fantasy. Too much good stuff to even know where to begin, but hey, it's Bannon. You cannot go wrong there.

Very good recommendations so far!

I already have Kort by Milt Kort and Theater of the Mind.

Haven't thought about Routined Manipulations. Will look into that one.

What about The Art of Close up Magic by Lewis Ganson?
