Anyone who owns this book recommends it to me? I'am a not beginner and I'm searching for good material in old books. Or it is just the basics?

It's a great book. Kind of like a condensed Tarbell Course in one volume. The book covers pretty much everything from close-up magic, card magic, manipulation, parlor magic, even magic with livestock and big stage illusions. Although it was written for the general public, and therefore covers much of the basics, even well informed magicians will be pleasantly surprised by the quality of the magic and the handlings Patrick Page teaches. You won't find material like this in most run of the mill beginner books. It's typical Patrick Page stuff: classic time tested, real world practical magic.

It's definitely not a beginner's book. There's some advanced material in there. Highly recommended.
