Well Floks,
Believe it or not, I have some money to spend on some effects or an effect, depending the price *L* I have about 100.00
to blow that the wife is not aware of, so now is my BIG chance!
I want to spend this on some great magic to add to my Rep. but I am unsure of what to buy, this kind of opportunity only comes up (for me) about 1 or 2 times a year so I dont want to go wrong here...

Can anyone help me out and direct me to a surefire video/book/or effect that I will be delighted I have purchased and get a lot of bang for the buck if you know what I mean??
I am into close up, and will soon start working resturants, just to give you an idea
of what realm of magic I an interested in.
I hope to hear from someone, I have a great deal of respect for the magicians in this forum and will take any recommendations to heart...

Thanks

Tom, do you already have The Art of Astonishment books? If not, now is the time. You just can`t go wrong with these books. If you cannot find anything to add to your repertoire from these books, I will personally travel to your place and eat those books. Dust jackets and all. As you have noticed I cannot recommend these books highly enough. I have heard that the first book is currently unavailable but will be back in a couple of months.

If you are going to be doing restaurants soon, perhaps the Magic Menu Vol 1 (First Five Years) and Vol 2 (Second Five Years) would be a good investment.

You could get a couple of good videos. Almost everything Michael Ammar puts out is good as well as Johnny Thompson. Both have a lot of really good commercial effects presented.

Get the Dan Harlan Pack Small Play big series, it gives the effects for several different type of shows, Kids Show, All purpose Show, Mentalism Show and stand up Show with Cards.

I happen to be selling my set as it happens! PM if you are interested.

Tom,
The money is obviously a problem for you.
So send it to me.
I won't send you anything in return.
I promise!
And, for only the price of a postage stamp, you will be relieved of a huge burden.
Don't worry about the money creating a problem for me; I'm tough and I can take it! Smile
cheers,
Peter Marucci

Thaks Peter! you have solved my problem,
the check is in the mail.... Smile

Just kidding, I did go out and spend a little on a couple of items yesterday evening, I got the NFW and a little chop cup, these are a couple of things I have been wanting for a while, but with what I have left, I will check out the prices and availability of the Magic Menu volumes, as well as the others mentioned above. Thank you for the posts
and have a great day Smile
