I'm a beginner in the art of magic, as far as overall close up magic goes i am, i learned cards pretty well to an intermediate level, now i bought this book and it has a lot of interesting stuff in it, like vanishing cigarettes, silks, and so on using a TT, it also has a good section on revelation of cards, and the pass and other control, has a section for silks and stuff, and one for money, and in the end it shows how the big stage illusions are performed, sawing a lady in half, disappearing lady from a box, and other stuff.. it has 20 lessons over all in it and sounds like it gonna be a good book, anyone else ever had or read this book? some feedback would be very nice, thanks

First of all you already posted this, but anyways here is the reply that I gave you in the other one. Never heard of it but it sounds similar to Mark Wilson's complete course in magic. Best of luck with your magic.

Hay put out some great books. I've got the Magician's Encyclopedia(or something of that nature), and The Amateur Magician's Handbook. Both include an incredible amount of info. The best bang for the buck.

I have both henry hay's book and mark wilsons book. THey are both great but i personally think Hay's is better. It goes into detail with cards coins balls thimbles and what not. It covers more coin sleights, not just the toss vanish and french drop. I love and own them both, but Hays book will keep you busy for awhile.

I have the book and I like it. It has some basic stuff that everyone should have. Good investment. 8)

I think it is good to have as many resources as possible. Some day you might need that one thing that is in that one book. A good library is good to have.

Mark Wilson's complete course is far from being a complete course. Henry Hay's "The Amatuer Magician's Handbook" is a fantastic value. I learned my first REAL sleights from that book about 15 years ago, and have treasured it ever since. Hay's book mainly concentrates on sleight of hand, but since that was my passion to begin with, it worked out very well for me.

Cups and Balls is fantastic, if done correctly. You will not master it in hours, days, or weeks. Try the simple routines first, and then move on to more complex ones. Michael Ammar has a great video set on the Cups and Balls.
