Very good choice. You can´t go wrong with Card College, in this book you will find the foundations of card magic.

Thank you for all your replies here...now I've decided not to buy any vernon's book until I move into advanced...about RRTCM, some of my senior and few people on the other thread said that the book is hard to understand. so I decided to buy card college by Roberto Giobbi...
Card College is a series...5 volumes in all. If you are truly interested in taking your card magic knowledge to greater heights, then by all means invest in the entire set of books because these books are like eating potato chips...once you have one it's hard to stop! Smile Smile

Julie - I agree. Magic Digest was the first book I bought (from the now defunct Magic Shop at Disney World's Main Street) in 1972. It opened up the entire world of magic for me and from it, I discovered Tannen's in NYC.

KRZ4kardz: it's so expensive to buy all the card college series... in other thread, some said that they only like the vol 1,2,and 3. they're dissatisfied with the rest 2...but buying 3 is still too expensive, so I'll just buy the first two volumes. do you think it's bad choice?
thx

Absolutely not ...by all means buy the first 2 volumes and if you can sacrifice something get vol. 3 also. You will not regret it. But I must disagree about the 4th & 5th volumes...I love those also. There is so much info in the entire series, it's like an encyclopedia, a great reference source that will provide the cardician with a PhD in card magic! Good luck! Don't forget Vernon though, any book with his magic is priceless...make the choice!

You might add the Bill Tarr "Now You See It, Now You Don't!" books one and two to the list if you can find them. These are sometimes overlooked as excellent beginner books. Also the Mark Wilson Course in Magic is a good beginner resource. These books are affordable. You might check out http://www.magicbookshop.com/ for a good book shop. Their costumer service is top notch.
