Being a almost beginner in magic I have noticed that many people are keen on this book. I would like to know what this book contains, I know there are sleights, but are there effects and routines?

Thanks in advance for any help.

There are loads of effects. The book takes you through various sleights and then teaches you effects that you can use those sleights in.

The book also has a great chapter on routining - which is definately very useful.

The book is great - buy it for sure!!

This book has earned its acclaim for a reason. And besides, it's cheap! You can't lose with this puppy.

Card College, but if you are just getting into magic, get RRTCM as a tatser. If you like get the real stuff.

Yup! Royal road has IMO stronger effects but Card College teach you the "perfect" sleights, therefore for newbies and those who want a cheap and good alternative - go with RR.

I recommend Card College Vol.1 to learn the basic of card sleights. The explanation is well done and the sleights inside contain a lot of modern refinement. A must have.

RRTCM is definitely the groundwork for anyone starting card magic.
Card College goes into fine detail on sleights and is very comprehensive.
Both highly recommended

There are 5. I believe that the 5th is focused more on tricks and routines than the other 4 volumes.

For those on a budget, like me, you needn't get the complete set all at once. Volume 1 has been keeping me busy for quite a while, though I'm getting ready to dive into volume 2 so I can get my overhand lift shuffle and Elmsley count going.

I just recently purchased Royal Road to Card Magic and am thoroughly impressed by it. And it was a total bargain new at Border's books. At $11.95, it's a deal.

Thanks peeps! I think I will buy RRTCM next time I make an order. At penguin Magic they sell it for about $10 so I'm going to go there, it would appear that for that price it is a steal.

The Royal Road To Card Magic is the best book on card magic. It was the book that I started with as a youngster, and, (without wishing to sound arrogant) although my expertise with cards is now above the stuff featured in TRRTCM, I still refer back to the book from time to time.

A beginner should spend a year practising the stuff in Royal Road, and then move onto Expert Card Technique.
