We hear you whining: "Aw, man, books?! I don't wanna read books!"
Yes you do. You know you devoured the entire "Harry Potter" series in a few days -- and there weren't any magic tricks taught in those, were there? You also read "Twilight," because you just HAD to know why Edward was so mad at Bella before they even met.
You don't want to read any magic books? Get over it, and start reading. These magic books are some of the most compelling things you will ever read, because they teach so much more than how to do a trick. They are packed with performance advice and underground tricks. And they are loaded with tricks. LOADED.
There's an old saying: If you want to learn a new trick, read an old book. If you want to break through to be a master-level magician, you must read. These books should keep you busy for quite a while.
