What card trick book should I next get?
I have read "the royal road to card magic" and I master pretty well all the techniques and I can perform most od the tricks in this book.

After I worked through RRTCM I got Expert Card Technique, and Expert At The Card Table, and I would recommend both of them.

Sharingan,
Harry Lorayne's "Close-Up Card Magic", new copies under $20, used in good condition $10 or less; Some of the great classics are The Apex Ace, Out of This Universe and 50 pages detailing the Curry Turnover move;

If you are wanting to continue in Card Magic look into Card College, Peter Duffie's Card Conspiracies or anything by Harry Lorayne.

Same stuff and much more...plus there are also some good info on the history of cards, presentation, psychology, oneliners, and much more. Very good series of books for the cardician...highly recommended. Any book with Hugard/Braue as the author is the logical choice for the budget-minded. Look in the "Magic books and videos for beginners" at the top of this forum...it'll help.

Hi

Card College is IMHO more-or-less required reading. I find the English more accessible than in RRTCM. Harry Lorayne's "Close-up Card Magic" is a real gem too.

Have you tried "Encyclopedia of Card Tricks"? I think it's edited / compiled / introduced by Jean Hugard. There are a ton of effects in there.

"Encyclopedia of Card Tricks" in deed would be considered for intermediate to advanced cardicians...not heavy into sleights, it does touch base with a short chapter on basics...but there is a wealth of info in that book!

Sharingan,
I have read a ton of them.
I am certain that I will be scolded for telling you this, but I would buy any of the cheap, self-working card books.
Not for the sleights, but to see how important misdirection and simplicity can be.
Here kitty, kitty,kitty. Smile

I would agree with Card College, I think it's a must no matter what your skill level.
Also I Love the card magic of Nick Trost. Lots of great tricks that use quite simple and direct methods.

Hello:

My vote is overwhelmingly for Close-up Card Magic by Lorayne. It is a smashingly great book. The Ambitious Card Routine alone is worth many times the price. Best,

I read these books in the following order
Royal Road - Should always be the first book you read on card magic
Card College - I started with volume 1 and the rest just build on the previous.
Expert at the Card Table - difficult, but good to know the basis for a lot of manipulation
Card Manipulations (Hugard)
Encyclopedia of Card Tricks

I think a good order would be:

Royal Road
Expert Card Technique
Dai Vernon's Inner Card Trilogy
Ed Marlo's Revolutionary Card Technique

I know that the Marlo book is advanced, but the previous three books should give you enough of a grounding to attack it by that point.
