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 Semi-Automatic card tricks (all volumes).
Also, you really can't go wrong with any of Simon Aronson's books either.

Cheers.

"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"

One of my favorite books is George Schindler's Magic with Cards book. It is full of easy-to-do card effects.

There are some strong self-workers in Woody Aragon's new book, "A Book in English."

It is being discussed here:

"Is there any point to which you would wish to draw my attention?"
"To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time."
"The dog did nothing in the night-time."
"That was the curious incident," remarked Sherlock Holmes.

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, fun-to-perform card tricks--and the profound mathematical ideas behind them--that will astound even the most accomplished magician. Persi Diaconis and Ron Graham provide easy, step-by-step 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 Principle--a fantastic effect where the cards remain in control despite being shuffled--is 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 stories--and reveals the best tricks--of the eccentric and brilliant inventors of mathematical magic. Magical Mathematics exposes old gambling secrets through the mathematics of shuffling cards, explains the classic street-gambling scam of three-card monte, traces the history of mathematical magic back to the thirteenth century and the oldest mathematical trick--and much more.>>
