Without a doubt, Phil Goldstein and T.A. Waters.

Waters for common sense.
Corinda for an entertaining read, coverage and for the most structured approach.
Fulves for sharp intakes of breath at his inventiveness.

I agree with Kuffs and others who mentioned Al Mann. His encyclopedic knowledge and thorough, disciplined research were truly impressive!

It is hard to believe a man is telling you the truth if you know that if you were in his situation you would be lying.

The mentalism chapters of Amateur Magicians Handbook affected me deeply, but I haven't really read enough other works to have that much cred... I can still go back and read Henry Hay's writing, and it makes me want to become a magician all over again.

Richard Mark's Mind Warp is a wonderful book. I also have very much enjoyed Lesley, Waters ,Richardson and Maven. Up and coming Scott Xavier's work is clear and enthusiastic.

I will agree with the banachek/osterlind combo.

Pre-thoughts was the booklet that inspired me to get into mentalism. Osterlind was the one who inspired me to love it like an art.

I am really enjoying The Mind and Magic of David Berglas by David Britland. Maven and Brown are my other favorites. My favorite pieces of writing by Maven are Verbal Control or the Color Series.

Cheers,
mackmania

Derren Brown and Barrie Richardson to me have the best balance of coherent description and humour from my reading so far.
