I’ve now read all of the tricks in the book. I will make my second round reading the interviews more slowly.

Received the replacement book today in record time. Really appreciate David's quick action in getting it to me.

Have now read about two hundred pages and the book is fantastic. Buy it!

I’m jealous of all of you who have gotten your books already! I ordered on 9/20 and still in pre-shipment purgatory :/ One day!

I don't get it. Magic books with a myriad of routines, detailed instructions and essays of course ; how can you possibly absorb the content so quickly to determine how fantastic it is. I realize David Regal's work speaks for itself but it always bothered me regarding reviews of magic instructional books so quickly. Maybe it's just me.
If you can't help worrying, remember worrying can't help you!

Here's what I think: If you are reading my book, which took years of extraordinary effort to realize, and you like it, tell everyone and post everywhere.

Reading David’s book...there is much to absorb, but that is what so extraordinary about the book...it is clearly written and photographed superbly. Plus you have input from many other magicians on their insight, ideas and theory on many aspects of magic. Thank you David for the immense amount of time, effort and expertise you have offered the magic community in this publication. Greatly appreciated.

Mine arrived today too. Only had a moment to glance through it, but from a production quality perspective, this is top-notch. Clear photos, good paper, nice end papers. This is first class all the way.

I read the first effect in the book ("The Magicians") with cards in hand. I worked through the moves a few times grinning from ear to ear. Today I shared it with some friends after work at our local hang-out...the reactions were far better than what I imagined.

Looking forward to learning (and PERFORMING) the effects he has shared in this great book...along the interviews with some of magic's best magicians.

I finished making up “David’s Bottle” today.

Wow. It is a beautiful item. The retention is stunning. Can’t wait to bring this one out in a show next month.

This post prompted me to check this out...CLASSIC Regal thinking! If you have the abilities to make this prop you'll have a piece of magic that will stay in your act forever.

Basically a utility prop that let's you do a mystery card or prediction in bottle effect. It's really clever.

Is "David's Bottle" covered in Interpreting Magic or somewhere else?

There's a good reason he noted that he wasn't initially interested in giving the details of that one up... It looks pretty good.

I'm a big Regal fan and ordered this when it was posted for sale. The book arrived and it's beautiful. Any recommendation on where/how to start - should I read in order, or jump to specific tricks and routines, saving the theory and discussion dialog for last? Just looking for any guidance for folks that have pieced their way through the entire book already - thanks.

that's a tough one...how do you typically approach a book on magic? I'm the jump around the book type of reader while others go cover to cover...some read the card effects first, others go to the parlor stuff. I guess the short answer is, "To each his own".

I read from cover to cover. I figure that helps me read the book the way the author intended. I have found that the theory and interviews give a nice break from the tricks and vice versa. But yes, to each their own!
