Any opinions out there on the best book devoted to the subject of misdirection? I've heard Fitzkee mentioned, but, from what I've seen, it also seems to be in the beginner catagory. Not that this is a bad thing--it still may be the best.

"Leading with Your Head" by Gary Kurtz is an excellent work on the subject.

I have to agree with Martin. I just re-read the 39 page comb-bound booklet. It's an excellent source to get the most from your presentations. Some topics covered:

Space and staging/ where your hands should be in relation to your body as well as your spectators.. The Open Position/ holding props well away from the body.. Active and Relaxed States/ The Off Beat/ an unexpected twist that throws them off track...Priority of Actions/ Strong vs Weak Movements... Psychological Techniques such as the Nod Technique ... Affirmation and Distortion of Memory.

This book is well worth your consideration and a must read for anyone who wants the most from their magic.

Other books to consider: Strong Magic by Darwin Ortiz.. The Books of Wonder by Tommy Wonder to name just a very few.
