The magiccafe. It's the only thing I read. I learn magic from DVDs. I would consider buying a book if Oz wrote one.

Oz pearlman is not that good of a magician. if you want a book you should get one from the greats like vernon or jennings etc. not oz pearlman.

Magic Grandpa Here:

I'm trying to make my way through Showmanship for Magicians, but that Fitzkee is the most boring writing I've ever come across. I suspect he's dead, but somebody should have given him a book on how to communicate. What an arrogant bore he was and still is through his book.
I'm old as dirt; that's why there's no picture of me.

Exept for one effect, which is not a card trick at all: Dean Dill's Box.

The Magic Mirror by Robert Neale.

Quite hard to get into as he talks about life magics etc. but worth it if you can stay at it.

Magic menu years 1-5.
Bit disappointed, but there must be a reason everyone is so keen about it Smile The stories are a good read, I find most of the tricks not my cup of tea I think.
Deal cards, not drugs!

I've also read several non-magic books lately. I think that is important!

I recommend any of the Patricia Cornwell of Lee Child novels as well as Time, Newsweek or The Smithsonian magazines or a good newspaper. It helps to be able to converse with the normal folk about something other than the latest DL.

I have been going through the Tarbell course again. Also, I just picked up Fiztkee's Showmanship for Magicians last night and started re-reading it.

I think the tricks are the least of that book. I loved reading the thinking and stories of the front-line of restaraunt work.
