For those who just want to get into magic, then get this free Tarbell Course In Magic book.
When I first interested in getting a comprehensive book of magic tricks, this was the book I was thinking of buying back then.
I read about it at the magic forums that there are lots of great stuff in there.
But until today I still did not buy it.
But I have bought many other books, magazines and encyclopedias relating to parlor magic tricks, mental magic and stage illusions.
