What book or books should one look into after reading the Complete Cups and Balls? Are there better books out there? Preferably that I can order on Pdf so I can enlarge the print. Smile

Instead, how about watching tons of performances of the cups and balls from as many sources as you can find.

Reading books about the cups and balls will usually result (for most) in a very boring, overly technically-based routine with
waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to many "phases". (Magicians love phases).

Learn the basic sleights to perfection and after that, watch as many routines as we you can.
