``The Magic Book'' contains descriptions of solid, professional style (no pulling coins out of ears magic here!) close up magic. Indeed, many magicians complained to Harry that he was giving too much away. Their loss is definately your gain.
As a note, this book is in print, having been republished recently by L&L publishing. You might have to search for it. Any magic shop should be able to get it for you, or search the web for a magic supplier.
Mr. Lorayne gives very clear and detailed explanations of how you should hold your hands, how to present the tricks, etc. More importantly, he explains *WHY* the tricks work the way they do.
Don't discount these tricks as being "beginner". Just because they are simple, doesn't mean they are not hard-hitting. I've seen tricks out of this book floor a room full of magicians. Magicians have many opportunities to buy one-trick DVDs for $30 or $50. As a beginner, do yourself a favor and get this and/or the Mark Wilson book first. Mastering the magic here will take a beginner (or intermediate) magician a long way into the world of magic. This is a gem well worth the money.
