THE BIBLE TO CARD MAGIC!

Anyway, its a very good book i am only on the first chapter i do all sorts of magic but i like card magic the most and this book is great it teaches you many sleights, tricks , tricks with those sleights and a history of the sleights!
A must read for any aspiring magician. This will arrange the most basic principals and a few tricky little numbers. perfect material for a teacher or begining student, or even as collectable research.
only a tenner and well worth digesting. Grab this book, a new set of bicycles (black tigers are well tasty) and sit down for a few days revising like mad....
