Spirit Theater by Eugene Burger.

It is singularly wonderful, and opened many doors for me.

Mastering the Art of Magic is a must have. One of the most useful and straightforward books on the art ever written. And the effects are fabulous.

The Almanac has always had a special place in my heart. Such a value and so fun to read Richards thoughts back in the day.

Are we including Kaufman and Greenberg?
Then I'd say their edition of 'Greater Magic' with its additions. Every time I look though it, I think of the phrase "so old it's new". You could fry laymen and magicians with the material here.
But also - 'Martin Gardner Presents' - wonderful material.
And 'The Uncanny Scot' - the full details of the staple routines of a working magician.
But what about the Vernon Touch? - the best primer on the philosophy of magic around.
And then Richard's Almanac. So much great material from so many great magicians. Plus the 'Bull' columns.

Sorry - too much to choose from!

If Kaufman and Greenberg is included the clear winner is Greater Magic. From the Kaufman and Company books I like Mastering the Art of Magic best.

...and pretty much all the rest of them.

Richard Kaufman has been, and continues to be, a hugely positive influence on magic (as everyone knows, so I'm not sure why I mentioned it.)

Thanks, Richard.

Like Bonnie Raitt said, "I miss Little Feat more than I miss being 8 years old." Thanks for the concerts + recordings, Lowell, Richie, and Paul!

For me it has to be Martin Gardner Presents by (none other than...) Martin Gardner.

If I could only have a THIRD of a book to take with me to my desert island, it would come from Greater Magic...as David Roth once said: "pound for pound, it may very well be the greatest book on magic ever written!"
