I'm going to have to say By Forces Unseen by Earnst Earick. This book has challenged me and it's just freaking fun.

I would have to say the Amateur Magicians handbook by Henry Hay. I never get tired of reading this book, always somthing new to learn.

Expert Card Technique. Still a lot to learn from that book.

This question was about card books, right, since it's in this thread? In that case, I'd take Annotated Erdnase (while I curse the "Inner Circle" who allegedly gutted the Professor's annotations from "Revelations.") If I knew I was going to be on that island for a long time, and could pack like the Howells on "Gilligan's Island," I'd want to take my copy of Cardcraft. I'd have plenty of time to pester my "Girl Friday" with card tricks. (Or my volleyball.)

I'd have to choose Harris's "Art of Astonishment" Series.

I'd go with John Carney's "Carneycopia". I love that book, Steve Minch did a great job writing it. It's my favorite, no doubt.

If I could take the set it would be Card College, I have Vol 1 & 2 but still haven't read them fully and would have plenty of time for Vol 3&4

My only complaint about this book is that it is very poorly written. The book could be fully 1/3 shorter if the author had simply removed the superfluous verbiage extolling the brilliance of Mr. Jennings. If we didn't think his material great, why would we have bought the book in the first place?
