I really like the option to get the course in PDF format from Conjuring Arts as it can be viewed on my tablet. I have to admit that it took me a while to get used to reading books on a tablet. I still like the feel of turning the pages and radoming flipping to the section in the hard copy; it's just not the same as an ebook.

I love both but 1-8 appeals to me more and each volume easier to carry, but I also love huge books. 1-8 has stuff in them that the others do not and vice versa. But there is a lot of overlap. I have had multiple sets over 34 years now.

Well that is a personal preference. Do you want smaller books with all the material spread out or one big book with all of it in? I love both and as a collector of course I have to have both. But 1-8 is special to me as it was my first book set back in the day, and I paid $400 for it then and thought it was well worth it, as the course is the "Bible of magic". I kinda like going through one volume at a time with the 8 books. But I also love huge books as well so I got both as I am a collector.

This course is what gave me a solid foundation to build from and I still use stuff from these till this day 34 years later. But if you are like me, a diehard magic freak and collector, you won't want to miss even one thing that one may have that the other doesn't. Smile Because we all know they are the "best tricks."

Simple answer: There's a lot more content in 1-8.

As I understand it, vols 1-6 contain most of the material from the original course, with revisions and some new stuff. Vol 7 is all new material and includes indices. Vol 8 is mostly original material omitted from 1-6.

Get the HArd copies Vol. 1-8. You will refer back to them endlessly.
