Not to sound brusque my friend but how can a classic - a seminal text - become outdated? Yes, I do quite a few effects from Greater Magic. But let me ask you Daniel: would you argue that Linking Rings and Cups and Balls are outdated? What about the Hofzinser ace effect which predates Greater Magic by decades? But, if some of the classic books are out of date for you that is a valid statement for YOU. The writing style is not flashy, there are no clear photographs, but the illustrations are good. This book is so widely referenced in the literature to this day that there must be a reason why. If you are used to Card College then you may not like Greater Magic. I love BOTH works and I have learned so much from every book and journal I read. But, I do not read magic books just for effects so perhaps our approach to study is different and that too is valid for BOTH of us. Your question was about Greater Magic and I was happy to answer it. That said, only YOU can judge whether it is worth your effort to study it. There is certainly no shortage of books to read in the art. :) I WOULD however be curious to know what classic books you consider "outdated." Ahimsa, Vlad [/quote]
