This forum is suck-fest, let's keep it alive

Who do you guys think is the best educator in magic, based not on the amount of material released, but how it was taught?

For me, I'll list my favorites:

-Michael Ammar
-Daryl
-Richard Osterlind
-Jeff McBride
-Mark Wilson
-J.B. Bobo
-Annemann
-Greg Wilson

These are the resources from which I learned most of my material that I actually use.

Thanks for contributing guys, I think we need to get this forum into gear as opposed to the dead ghost town it is right now.

Jean Hugard would have to have my top honours for written teachings. He conveys instructions very well.

As for more current mentors....

Michael Ammar, and Daryl.

Wayno, I agree definitely with Hugard. Not only his methods, but just the many many books he wrote and edited.

I learned much from many sources, but what stands out is Hugard and Braue's Royal Road to Card Magic
