The Royal Road to Card Magic Hardcover – November 4, 2008
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

This review is about the incredibly poor quality edition produced by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Their's is a very low quality, print-on-demand, version of the book which has two inch black margins, pixelated illustrations, and lacks substantial portions of the text. Presumably, CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform is one of those companies that exploits the easy availability of free texts to sell print-on-demand versions with no quality control. Also, their edition is almost twice as expensive as the much higher quality Dover one. As far as I can tell, their's is listed first because they lie about the publication date and exploit some sort of searching bug in Amazon. This is a dishonest and opportunistic way to sell overpriced, lower quality, goods online.
Don't waste your money on the CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform edition, buy the Dover Edition instead: The Royal Road to Card Magic
There's a reason this book is the number one mentioned book for learning card magic. The material within its pages will do one well as you progress. The key with this book as well as any other is Practice. But even though this was written in the 50's it is still THE BEST starting point to learn.
Get this book, you will not regret it.
