I have $50 to spend on a book (doesn't have to be exactly $50). What are your recommendations?

My ideas thus far...

Moments by Troy Hooser
One Degree by John Guastaferro
A Clockwork Apple by Chris Meyhew
Relaxed Impossibilities by Ken Krenzel
Doug Edwards Packs a Wallop by Harry Lorayne

I know, I know, without any other information, it can be hard to recommend. I don't mind if your recommendations aren't custom tailored. I am just curious which books YOU have been enjoying lately.

Thanks in advance.

I would go with Moments by Troy Hooser, although I dont own it, I've heard alot of positive reviews on it.

I got two books for Christmas. I got Audience Management (http://www.penguinmagic.com/product.php?ID=S12244) and Magic and Showmanship (http://www.penguinmagic.com/product.php?ID=S4720). Neither of them are books about tricks but they both have a lot to offer. I finished Audience Management but am working on Magic and Showmanship (I have already learned a lot even though it is an old book; 1969)
I hope this helped, Drew

Thanks for the advice!

One of my friend recommended me Ken Krenzel's work and showed me a couple of his effects, so I think I am going to go with Relaxed Impossibilities. Thanks again!
