There are so many people who have more than one book or series of books.

John Bannon has Smoke and Mirrors and Impossiblia

John Carney has Carneycopia and Books of Secrets(and may have a third)


I'm not talking about card college 1 vs. 2 or any other books that progress in skill and technique as you go along. I mean seperate books that can be bought without the others(even if it is within a series).

I just wanted to get opinions on which of the books you thought was better. Please don¡¯t limit the reviews to only the ones I mentioned of course, the more reviews on different books the better.

Thanks
Josh

I liked Carneycopia over Book of Secrets and I liked Smoke & Mirrors much better then Impossibilia.

Please don't only limit the opinions to those four books. Give opinions on any series of books or two or more books of the same person.

thanks

The last I saw Daytona Magic still had Impossibilia.Smoke and Mirrors is out of print,but rumour has it that it is going to be reprinted.I think that Carneycopia is also out of print.
