Along with Art of Astonishment what are some other excellent card trick books that I should check out to really advance my routine with some good card tricks. Thanks

Does the royal road to card magic mainly deal with sleight of hand or is it mostly a book of tricks?

The Card College Series is useful, though I my favorite book is Harry Lorrayne's "Apocalypse" series. Though not entirely just a card book, just one of these books has hundred upon hundreds of pages of great tricks, thoughts, etc from the best guys around the world for years. They are very pricey, but that is to be expected from a huge encyclopedia of magic from years and years of advice and routines provided by some of the best guys in show. "Counts, Cuts, and Subtleties" is a great book to study card "moves" and not tricks. Royal road is a great book that will be a staple forever. Richard Kaufman also wrote an excellent but somewhat pricey card book that I own, but the name excapes me at the moment. That was a great book.
