I've spent around two decades practicing sleights of hand, flourishes and card tricks. Nearly every thing I have learned is in the Royal Road to Card Magic, a book first published in 1949 and written by Jean Hugard and Frederick Braue.
I have struggled and struggled with what I felt were poor illustrations and overly complex descriptions to learn many of the secrets housed in this famous book. No more! I was recently introduced to a 6 DVD demonstration of the book that clearly and easily shows each move!
I've spent a few hours with the DVD set and I'm very happy! The set is filling in gaps where I felt the book was incomprehensible. I'd skipped a number of tricks where lack of a strong visual made it impossible for me to learn. I'm picking things up very quickly! I'm thrilled!
For beginners I highly recommend both a copy of the book and the DVDs.
