The Royal Road to Card Magic
The Royal Road to Card Magic by Jean Huguard. I really wish that back when I was first getting serious about card magic, someone would have said to me "Hey before you spend money on anything else get this book first" There are plenty of books and dvd's that teach you moves and tricks. But this book is a course in card magic. It starts off with the overhand shuffle and then how to make it tricky and then it gives you a drill to practice then some tricks with it. All the while explaining about magic theory and how to work with the audience. Then it moves on to another move then another as you learn new moves you learn new tricks and by the end you have a good solid foundation in card magic and a collection of effects to wow anyone.
