If you have noticed the sticky on recomended reading and dvds as about every book on the website.
No, it doesn't. It has just about every book that should be in a magician's library. This happens to be a lot of books, yes. That's why it would benefit from being better organized and categorized.
people will suggest a book and a DvD and i will see if its worth putting in the guide.
The problem is that most people here aren't really magicians. Therefore the suggestions you are getting (and giving) suck. Most people here pretend to know far more than they actually do, and your list already reflects this. There is no hope for the list ever reflecting anything different as long as that is your model for creating it.
But what in my reccomendation is that poor?
Your list is bad because of what it lacks more than because of what it has. A list purporting to present you with must have material for magicians but lacking even passing mention of the Tarbell Course in Magic
can be considered little more than a joke.
Frankly, I'm not interested in deconstructing the list to tell you everything that's wrong with it. But I'll point out a few examples of bad advice that are glaringly obvious from reading it in passing.
First of all, the entire XCM section needs to go away. Most XCM is not magic and has little or nothing to do with magic. That specialized subgenre of XCM that actually is magic is such a specialized field that I think those interested in it can find the teaching material for themselves.
The wild levitation is not a very good effect at all, specially for beginners. You could've easily put vanishing silk, scotch and soda, or even Mindfreak volume 1 (Quarter Through Soda Can) there instead, but you didn't.
Bobo and Royal Road aren't general grounding books, they are specialized books for coins and cards respectively. The greatest set of general grounding books ever written (Tarbell), is not on your list. You could've also put Magic For Dummies in that section.
None of the Sankey material belongs anywhere on this list. Jay Sankey has good material out there, but none of it deserves to be on a must-have list of any kind, except perhaps in the section for "buying for fun". Something like "In a Flash" would go good there.
Electric Touch doesn't belong on this list; it is useless to the vast majority of people and those who do have a use for it don't need your help to figure it out. If some kid took your advice and bought Electric touch, they would be wasting their money and would be severely disappointed.
youre probably the first person saying this.
Chances are, I'm also the first person who knows anything who has commented on your list. Don't let the lack of criticism fool you, if you put a bunch of people who think they know more than they do in a room together, they are going to support each others ignorant ideas.
I wont put books and dvd in venues i dont know, like manipulations,
Then it won't ever be a very good list will it? You can't know everything afterall, and if you refuse to write about things you have no knowledge of, then this means the list can never be complete.
For the things i posted i think i know what im talking about,
You may think you do, but then you would be wrong.
but some books you stated i cant post them because I personally dont have them, I know some of them.
The fact you don't have these books (or at least most of them, if not all of them) just proves that you don't know what you're talking about.
And first of all, who said I'd want to have this post stikied?
Well im going to make it worth a sticky.
This makes it sound like you want it stickied.
