Darwins is a good source. If money is an issue and you don't want to spend to much, 25 tricks with a TT is a good beginner DVD.

As stated here, "Darwin's Encylcopedia of TT Magic" is a DVD set that is well-worth the cost. Definitely an investment worth making.

If the cost is an issue, I recommend Darwin's book of 101 TT tricks. It's the best of the "101" books out on the topic and sells for about $4.

Afelbs,
My TT came with a 101 tricks book which appears to be Darwin and a video. I bought this combination at a Houdini's in Las Vegas. I like the effect called "color change with a sucker finish" best.

I think there is an effect here where someone takes sugar, tin foil, a chocolate bean and turns it into a Hershey kiss. I thought that was a pretty good effect.

Darwin is a very good source, and well worth the investment. However, if you can't swing the Darwin DVD's at the moment, I HIGHLY recommend getting Patrick Page's Secret Sessions DVD on the thumbtip !
