I always thought the best buy in magic is the Apocalypse set. So many hidden gems.

Richard's Almanac for me.

It's smaller, sure, but just more enjoyable to read.

I suspect I will be adding The Magic of Ascanio Vol 1 and The Magic Rainbow to my list of books to revisit consistently. So much good thinking to unpack and process.

Ok Mr. Lorayne. I freely admit I refer to your Super-Power Memory book quite a bit when I was a Junior in college. It helped me tremendously; my grades improved significanly. I still use the methods you taught to memorize facts, figures, and faces today. I once ran into a person on the train that I met once 20 years ago at the gym. I sat down and started a conversation with him. Told him after about two minutes of small talk that I was receiving some deep insight, played it up (showmanship) and then told him his first name. He really freaked out as he didn't remember me at all. After about two minutes of his horrified shock and seeing that he may conclude that I am some stalker (which I am definitely not), I told him how we met 20 years before at the gym, and that I am a savant with faces and names. I mentioned your great Super-Power Memory book as the reason I can recall people's names months and years after an introduction.

I also love your magic Related books ..all great stuff

I have been gifted a copy of Apocalypse book and 2, and I think these are truly amazing. So much magic is crammed into these. I can make a start with my Boston box set now. Learned a couple of Harry Lorayne card tricks too...nice.!!
So um yeah, if you can find it, the first Apocalypse. The second one is pretty *** good too.

Those who think that magic consists of doing tricks are strangers to magic. Tricks are only the crude residue from which the lifeblood of magic has been drained."
