As others have said, Jeff McBride. He teaches a variety of different types. If you want cards, he has a great series on that. He also has a lot of work on stage magic in general.

Two of the best books for beginning sleight of hand that will serve you well for years and years to come are :

1). Now You See It...Now You Don't Book 1 by Bill Tarr
2). The Mark Wilson Complete Course In Magic


As a magician for over 30 years, (I started when I was 12) I'm telling you that these are two of the best books ever written on the subject. If you don't believe me, then do a google search on both of these books and read some reviews for yourself.


Hope that this helps you
