i know you'll be disapointed when you see no answers in here, but just another questioin. its my way of getting as much people to look at my question. :wink: i was wondering how good the art of astonishment books are and what the level of difficulty is? which book is the best too?
thanks!

B_slap: Making titles like this will be the fastest way to NOT get any answers, but rather get your topic locked. No need to pretend exposures to get people to notice your question. Just a friendly warning, next time I'll just lock it up.

Well difficulty? From Easy to moderately hard. (Of course I am not a seasoned magician yet. They are a very good series of books. As far as which one, that is probably the hardest question since all 3 volumes have excellent tricks in all of them. I suggest you get one volume and see if you like it, that way if for some reason you don't, then you aren't out the whole set.

Ok, first of all, you don't need to have a title regarding exposure to get people to look at your post. Just title it PLEASE LOOK or something. StreetMan.

AoA books are for beginner level magicians. I don't suggest it.

AoA are not necessarily for beginning magicians, many of the effects in his books are used by well known professionals, there are interviews interspersed throughout the books with professionals. Yes some are easy, but as I said before and several people have confirmed this in this and other posts, some are moderately hard. They are highly recommended.
