If you are seriously interested in learning card magic, there is no better place to start than The Royal Road to Card Magic with R. Paul Wilson.

For more than half a century, Jean Hugard and Fred Braue's landmark book, The Royal Road to Card Magic, has been a touchstone for all who love and endeavor to perform great card magic. Because of its building-block style of teaching sleights followed by tricks that utilize those sleights to reinforce the lesson, it's been called by many the greatest self-instruction book on magic ever written.

The best beginner's card magic set, period Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 17th, 2011
Believe me when I say that I went through just about every beginner card magic video I could until I got to this one. Soon after I was kicking myself for not just listening to the pro's and starting here. This is simply the best beginning card magic video set out there. Get the book. Get this. And study. Also, this video is not meant as entertainment, so don't turn it off cause you think it is 'boring'. This is about learning,and this is considered by many to be the best for a reason.

The King of card magic books comes to DVD! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 6th, 2014
The classic book, that many top Magicians got their start with in magic is brought to DVD. Paul Wilson, one of the top sleight of hand artists in the world, covers all the important highlights from the book. From the proper technique for the double turnover, to the classic pass.

Plus you'll learn what has been called the greatest card trick ever cerated, Dai Vernon's Matching The Cards.

Great Purchase for Learning Card Magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 27th, 2014
I've been into Card Magic for about 6 months. I bought Royal Road to Card Magic as an ebook and was working through it, but at times really wanted a more visual working out of the move(s) described in the book.
This DVD is Just that! R Paul Wilson is detailed, camera angles are clear, and for most every trick, he walks through the explanation. I use if more for the slights however, so I make sure my finger placement etc. is as it should be.
It does seem a bit expensive but you're getting hours and hours of thorough instruction so ultimately, it's actually a very good deal.
No regrets at all, and highly recommended if you're starting out in card magic, especially with Royal Road to Card Magic, and just need a visual aid.

The Best When Combined with the Book Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 9th, 2013
I bought this a companion to the Royal Road To Card Magic book after its recommendation on many discussion sites. As R. Paul Wilson states in the introduction, the DVDs purpose is to be used as a visual supplement to the book. It clears up the small refinements that are the weakness of written text alone. If your a beginner, like I am, this, combined with the book, pretty much starts at A and gives you the skills toward mastery. A smart move on Penguin's part would be to offer a package of the book and DVD (at a discount, of course!). I own several of the "classics" of card magic. I found this combo is THE place to start.

BRILLIANT! Report this review

I bought this because i struggled with RRTCM but this really helped and with a little imagination you should be able to make much better tricks then what they show you on here although many of them are brilliant!

BUY IT!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 6th, 2012
I agree with the others comment. As a begginers we use to look for single powerful and easy effects, thats fine if you want to be a trickster but, if you want to be a magician this DVD set is a must have. thanks to the sleights that I learned here, now I can do awesome magic anytime and anywhere.

Methodical Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
Let's just start by saying that everyone should own the book "Royal Road to Card Magic". If you don't, use the search box above and go to that page and order it. This DVD is a great companion set to the book. I would read the book as I went to sleep, carefully inspecting diagrams and re-reading paragraphs until it made sense. The logical evolution are these DVDs. As brilliant as the book is (and it is really great) this DVD set takes abstract concepts and shows them to you. It wasn't until I watched this set that I realised I was doing a few key moves wrong. The content is absolutely solid and it follows the book perfectly. If you are a beginner magician I would still recommend picking up Born to Perform Card Magic first - simply for the fact that it gets you performing tricks more quickly - but once you are ready for some more in-depth study, the book and this DVD set combined make a great resource. It takes discipline to keep to it because R. Paul Wilson is quite dry in his delivery but the results far out-weigh a few moments of boredom. Definitely buy now.
