Needs better tricks Report this review

This book is brilliant! and although the title says it needs better tricks it does have some brilliant ones but it would be nice if they had a few more modern tricks many of them are a little out dated with people like Blaine and Dynamo people expect you to be able to put a house in a bottle.

This book teaches everything about the basics of card magic. Every magician should have this book in his/her library, even if they barely work with cards. This book is one of the essentials.

This was one of the first proper magic books I got and it is great for learning basic sleights and tricks. It explains everything well but there aren't that many drawings to help you with the explanations. However, if you read this then you will probably be able to understand most of the book, even if it takes reading some pieces again. If you are a beginner and wanting to get into card magic then you should consider this. It explains the sleight/move and then explains a few tricks using it. Everything is explained in steps. The suggested patter might be a bit out of date for some performers though.

An Essential Book Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 15th, 2003
I believe The Royal Road to Card Magic is an essential piece of basic card magic literature for anyone, not just conjurers. The reason I say this is because I see kids and sometimes even adults buying a Svengali deck to take a short-cut into card magic and I strongly dislike that people always do so. Anyway, it is a great sleight and trick encyclopedia of basic card magic. I would also like to recommend Expert Card Technique which Penguin Magic also carries, because like The Royal Road to Card Magic, it is an essential book.

I believe this book is the greatest book for card magic that I have. I recommend this book more than expert card technique because it is better organized and more simple for begginers. I lost my books and I've been regretting it ever since, I garantee you'll never put it down.

I just got this book and have read around 15 pages as well as skimming through it. It is excellent. I've already bought several complete course in magic type books that had basic sleights, but this one explains them SO MUCH BETTER! I was making mistakes (improper grips, etc.) that I see will now get cleared up. BUY THIS BOOK! It's so cheap, and contains a wealth of information and tricks! It is the source for getting into card magic without a huge dollar investment.

The Royal road to Card Magic is an excellent book and a classic that is a must for any magic colletion. Plus its inexpensive! It has 18 chapters, each one going in depth about a different sleight/sleights, and then tricks with the sleight are taught in the chapter. Easy to understand explanations and clearly drawn illustrations are included on almost every sleight taught in this book. Can't recommend it enough!

Bottom line is, If you are interested in card magic at all, follow the royal road. Can't reccomend it enough!
