Ah.. my favorite topic
If you totally don’t have any info then the following 2 are a good start:
If you’re more advanced, shoot me a PM, I can point out a couple, depending on the types
Edited: Also, this should probably belong in the OffTopic thread if yes, can any mods help to move it.
If you want books related to magic tricks I won’t be much help, but for everything else Dr.Ngo’s list is da bomb: https://www.charlesngo.com/reading-list/
Ah! I see, then maybe I totally misunderstood
I’m pretty sure he actually meant magic aka David Copperfield, since he posted an AM book thread early this week.
Moved to offtopic just incase.
Ah, sorry. Don’t know of any magic books, but this guy has neat card trick tutorials on tubes:
Idk if it helps but this is one of the biggest magic forums –> https://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/index.php
couple of threads regarding revealed tricks
Is this for you or for your son?
i was watching tv and they featured a magician, and it was amazing how he had everyones attention glued – and im reading cashvertising and they talk about magicians, on how they control you to believe what they want.. so i wanna read up on some magic tricks to see how they do it (just to be a lil bit more liberal on the subject)
but now that u mention it, i might learn a few tricks to play with my son.. hehe
Ah. Then this is the book you should read
Enjoy! Hope the magic bug bites you.
But be warned. No turning back. You will missed those amazement you feel when you’re still a lay man
Also if you have some deep pockets (which I believe you do )
Hunt this one ‘ Hofzinser by Magic Christian’ 2 volume. About $300++ or so.
Which is considered as the father of modern card magic.
All the philosophy etc is a must read. Which I think this is where your intention is
There used to be the best show in Canada, this guy with a secret mask revealed a bunch of very good tricks.
The masked magician. We hate them 😛 frankly speaking those are guys that can’t really make it as professional magician.
They have below average skills, no showmanship. Only relies to the fact that just by telling people how to do things is enough. Cause it doesn’t need any skills to break it into step by step and perform it. Different if you really take time to master it and perform fluidly and entertaining.
They resort to such things. Just to gain popularity.
But it seems that layman do enjoy it
Ellusionist has some solid stuff: https://www.ellusionist.com
I was a huge fan of magic during my college years. Bug bit me when I saw David Blaine on TV.
For what you’re describing I highly recommend this book for the psychology of magic.
haha yes this guy! It’s just so intriguing when he shows you what you can’t figure out
