If you bought both of those books, and you're a beginner, i'm just gonna tell you right now. You have no reason to buy a DVD when you have those 2 master pieces in arms reach, read royal road very well,inside out, study every chapter, take a few days to read a chapter, when you're done, read it again.. and practice, When you're done with royal road to card magic, and you can execute 90% of the sleights in that book with perfection, then move on to expert card technique which will then teach you various counts, moves, false cuts, shuffles and so on. Both of these books, if you study them and you're really serious, you'll be a respectable cardician when you're done learning the material.. trust me!

easy to master card miracles teaches a lot of "easy to master" effects that many professionals use :lol:

For me, DVD's are the way to go. Instead of reading and having an image inside your mind, and one picture in a book, you get the whole motion on your screen. I just recieved Michael Ammar's Easy to Master Card Miracles. I would recommend this DVD to a beginner. I also highly recommend keep reading your 2 books, they are awsome resources. Also a good book on presentation would be good as well.

For books I'd say the Art of Astonishment series.

For Videos/DVDs I'd say Michael Ammar's Easy to Master Card Miracles 1-6 (my personal favorite series so far). Daryl's Revelations is VERY impromptu stuff, lots of pick a card tricks though, but some nice impromptu stuff. Bill Malone's On the Loose is great as well. I also hear a lot about The Very Best of Jay Sankey and Sankey's Secret Files, (next on my list to purchase).

Just my 2 cents.
