Want to know which magic books to buy? How to get started in magic for beginners? Or perhaps more advanced magic books to extend your knowledge? In this video I share my favorite magic trick books, which I have purchased over the years. I still have more back at home in Texas, but when I really had to narrow it down… THESE are the top 20 magic trick books I chose to pay to have shipped halfway around the world to where I am now. I discuss books that teach easy magic for beginners, as well as more advanced books, and additionally books on magic theory. It’s really a great idea to learn some presentation & magic theory after you have have learned some magic tricks you can actually perform for people. Only then do the lessons on theory make more sense as you read. I mostly focus on card magic tricks, but I do also reference other magic categories as well such as coin magic and mentalism. See below for the list of books… not in the order I presented, but categorized!

** I personally use these items below for filming my videos!
📷 My Main Camera (fast autofocus): https://amzn.to/2MwhPEA
🎥 Lens for “talking to the camera” (great bokeh): https://amzn.to/2MtgAWQ
💡 Powerful Light (helps video quality): https://amzn.to/2QOTFcw
👍 Soft Box (for that nice soft light on your face): https://amzn.to/2NriW99
🎙 Microphone with arm: https://amzn.to/33xgV3x
🔵 Tripod for camera: https://amzn.to/2U1O8Ri
🔵 Light Stand: https://amzn.to/3aawnoM
This light stand is kinda not sturdy enough because the light and soft box are so large; the whole thing can tip over easily. But it’s what I use! 😆 Or you can perhaps find another light stand that is rated to hold more weight. Or just put something heavy (like sandbags) onto the bottom to lower the center of gravity.
* Also, please note these are Amazon Affiliate links. It means I got an incredibly small amount of money if you click on them and/or find something you want to buy… which helps support the channel, so thanks! 🙂
Hope you enjoy these videos, and remember to check my channel home page because I created different Playlists to organize the types of videos I make… I’ve got some pretty good tutorials if you wanna learn new.
