"Visual learner" is the ADHD of the new century. In other words, it's the lazy man's diagnosis. The only people who truly cannot learn from books are those who can't read. Seems like kids here use the phrase "visual learner" as if it is some sort of terminal disease they can never be cured of, when the reality is that, more often than not, the "visual learner" designation is a choice, not a condition. Kids just don't read enough books these days. Period.
There is simply no reason, for example, that anyone capable of reading and understanding modern English cannot learn from Bobo's book. My God... it was written in 1952! And updated in 1964! That isn't all that long ago, people. English hasn't changed so drasrically in teh last sixty years as to render books written before 2000 unfathomable. Modern Coin Magic is a remarkably clearly written book far superior in scope, clarity, and overall quality to any DVD covering the same subject matter. And for the "visual learners," there are even pictures.
I used to worry that too much of the "professional" knowledge in magic was being made available to teens and pre-teens who were either incapable or unwilling to appreciate and respect it. While I still believe this to be true, I take comfort in the fact that the majority of the truly significant knowledge and wisdom crucial to becoming a magician resides in books -- somewhat old books, at that. What this means is that all of that information will thankfully remain out of the hands of those who don't deserve to know it, since "visual learners" will never dare go near it.
