Hey guys,

Can someone guide me in the direction of a source that teaches an impromptu self levitation. I found a book by Andrew Mayne that looked good. Thoughts??

They're almost all terrible. Really tough to find a good self levitation. The only ones that are good are ones that involve covering your legs with a coat or piece of cloth. If you can find a way to justify it, great. Otherwise, stay away from the plot.

Baladucci is the classic. The problem is that the angles on all of the self levitation are super tough. You'll do it on 15 people and they'll look at you like you're nuts and then the 16th person with think you're amazing. They all are too finicky for my taste.

I always liked 'Looy's Sooperman' from the Paul Harris books. Both feet leave the ground and you levitate at least a foot in the air. I do a simplified version with just a coat in front of my legs. It's probably in his Art of Astonishment books. There needs to be a volume 4 with all the cool stuff they left out of his original books that most magicians aren't even aware of.

The other guy is right about the Balducci levitation, it sucks, but amazingly fools some people (Peter Griffin types and lowbrows).
