i am skeptical bout RRTCM. I predicted that since the book is so thick, there are some sleights which are outdated, and i not sure which to learn sleight and use which sleight. So any link which would tell me what are some important things to learn.
Outdated!?? You have to start somewhere and if you can't handle the sleights in that book you sure won't be prepared for the stuff that will come later. Plus you will be introduced to most of the card plots out there. It will serve as a good foundation for every thing else you will ever learn. Sounds like you wanted us to say Born to Perform. Well we didn't. I don't think any of us have a problem with that DVD and I know a lot of "general purpose" magicians tout it quite highly. Nevertheless, most guys who really get into cards do so by going RRTM-->Expert Card Technique-->Erdnase and/or Card College.
noted. I just heard that somethings from the book is outdated, maybe only the tricks? Hopefully those sleights are never outdated. Do you have know a good guide in handling the thick card book. And would card college be a better choice?
The book may have been published quite a while ago, but they effects/sleights are just as applicable now as they were at the time of publication. And as far as advice for going through a card book...just go in order and make sure you really pay attention to every detail. Read, practice, reread, practice, etc.
