Royal Road, Mark Wilson's Complete Course, Card College...

Books but I, and many others here will agree, reckon that books are a million times better than DVDs - cheaper, more material and easier to revise from.

Just a word to the wise; make sure you're getting into magic for the right reasons - there's already a bevvy of bad magicians giving magic a bad name. Practice, practice some more and practice again, and have a look at this thread and the essays forum very good advice.

The Royal Road to Card Magic. It'll give you tons more information/sleights/effects than a DVD will... for a fraction of the price, too!

If he doesn't want to get into magic he should probably look at buying something like 101 Easy Card Tricks, that ebook you can get anywhere online. It's an issue I have with magic, too many people treat like that - they don't want to get into it they just want to stroke their egos so they learn something other people they know can't do.

I'm not attacking doomkitty here, I'm attacking everyone that does magic a diservice by being that godawful smart arse better than you trickster and creates a hugely negative stereotype in people's minds.

Look for Michael Ammar's series "Easy to Master Card Tricks"

There's a new book out called "Card College Lite" that teaches basic tricks packaged into multiple trick routines that flow from one to the other.

doomkitty I wasn't saying anything of the sort - by all means go learn some card tricks and enjoy yourself. I just feel very very strongly about people who bring about the negative stereotype of magicians that I and many others are desparately trying to get away from. It's all down to the fact that I hate performances of magic that smack of "look what I can do and you can't".

You say you like magic and in that case I hope you won't mind my saying that I hope absolutely and completely that you will avoid presenting anything you learn in this way.
