Well lucky me just recieved a lot of magic books/instructions from a friend who turned out to be a retired magician. By a lot I mean;

A.Roterberg-Later Day Tricks, Al.Baker & Co.-Our Mysteries, Cardtrick Central - Best of Cards, Ed Marlo - FingerTip Control, Ed Marlo - Miracle Card Change, Frank.R.Wallace - Neocheating, Jean Hugard - Encyclopedia of Card.Tricks, Jean Huguard - Card Manipulations Volumes 1-5, S.W. Erdnase - Expert at the Card Table

So, hopfully I can get some feed back from you guys about whats crap and whats not. I will eventually get through it all, but for now I need some recomendations of where to start. Thanks a lot for the help

Frank R. Wallace is a crackpot who also started a cult called "Neo-tech", loosely based on the theories of fellow crackpot and cult leader Ayn Rand.
Ellusionst discussing the Arcane Playing cards: "Michaelangelo took four years to create the Sistine Chapel masterpiece... these took five."

Ayn Rand a cult leader? That's the most oxymoronic thing I've ever heard.

I think all of them are too advanced, if you do not know the basics like DL, shuffle control etc.

except for encyclopedia of card tricks. Some medicore matrial, a few quality ones, takes time to look through.
