Get the Tom Mulica tapes. They are the best.

I love Tom's style, some may not but the tricks you'll learn are super amazing, especially with toung palming being dangerous to those you don't know how to do it I would suggest watching it instaed of reading it,

But if you don't laugh out loud at Toms Foolery your probably have no sense of humour.

Read Keith Clark's "Encyclopedia of Cigarette Tricks."

You'll learn the tools for putting together your own routine.

Keith Clarke's book (see above) is pretty comprehensive but old-fashioned and nigh-on impossible to read, owing to an impenetrable code used for explanations. I reckon you'd be better off with something a bit more recent.

I have a few cigarette tricks in my book "It's Magic".

Keith Clark's book is the bible of cigarette manipulation. I found it easier to tackle one small section at a time, which made the turn-a-few-pages references to the photo plates easier.

It is old, but it is probably the best book available. (Old, yes. Afterall, the golden days of cigarette manipulation are well behind even me at my age!)

Don't overlook it, lads.

Found this on youtube - doing this type of magic for kids is hilarious!

No one mention Slydini cigarette magic in his book "The Magic of Slydini". Close-up magic presented while seated at a table.

Recently watched Slydini's torn & restored cig on an episode of Reel Magic. Nice effect!

Keith Clark's book may look old but there are in there some moves that are forgotten and replaced by much weaker movve (namely on the continuous production of cigarettes)
Don't pass it by.

I've been using the book to build a penknives routine with knives of six different colors + some additional ones...

And now that Chad Long came with the brilliant idea of replacing the color changing knives with Flash drives, the books on cigarettes are the keepers of rare secrets.
Magic is the art of proving impossible things in parallel dimensions that can't be reached

I just picked the book up yesterday and I agree that the abbreviations are rather annoying
