I third the recommendation. Just for the first two tricks alone  not only great but the way they flow together makes an absolute amateur like me look very polished.

I don't seem to see these anywhere in here: Steve Beam's SemiAutomatic card tricks (all volumes).
Also, you really can't go wrong with any of Simon Aronson's books either. Cheers. J.Warrens

"Verbal Magic" by Navarro & Tamariz recently published by Hermetic Press should be added to the list as well as the soon to be published "Card College Lighter"

There are some strong selfworkers in Woody Aragon's new book, "A Book in English."
It is being discussed here: http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......&start=0

One for the near future: “Magical Mathematics: The Mathematical Ideas that Animate Great Magic Tricks,” by Persi Diaconis & Ron Graham.
The amazon product description: <<Magical Mathematics reveals the secrets of amazing, funtoperform card tricksand the profound mathematical ideas behind themthat will astound even the most accomplished magician. Persi Diaconis and Ron Graham provide easy, stepbystep instructions for each trick, explaining how to set up the effect and offering tips on what to say and do while performing it. Each card trick introduces a new mathematical idea, and varying the tricks in turn takes readers to the very threshold of today's mathematical knowledge. For example, the Gilbreath Principlea fantastic effect where the cards remain in control despite being shuffledis found to share an intimate connection with the Mandelbrot set. Other card tricks link to the mathematical secrets of combinatorics, graph theory, number theory, topology, the Riemann hypothesis, and even Fermat's last theorem. Diaconis and Graham are mathematicians as well as skilled performers with decades of professional experience between them. In this book they share a wealth of conjuring lore, including some closely guarded secrets of legendary magicians. Magical Mathematics covers the mathematics of juggling and shows how the I Ching connects to the history of probability and magic tricks both old and new. It tells the storiesand reveals the best tricksof the eccentric and brilliant inventors of mathematical magic. Magical Mathematics exposes old gambling secrets through the mathematics of shuffling cards, explains the classic streetgambling scam of threecard monte, traces the history of mathematical magic back to the thirteenth century and the oldest mathematical trickand much more.>> Available on October 23, 2011 !!!
