Product Description:
Children love card tricks, and with this book by an expert in magic and card conjuring, youngsters will be able to master a host of tricks especially designed for them.
Tricks are arranged in order of difficulty, with the simplest at the beginning of the book. Clearly written, easy-to-follow instructions and over 60 helpful diagrams take aspiring magicians through each step — from preparing and manipulating the cards to developing a line of patter (a necessary ingredient for any successful performance).
Newcomers to the art of performing card tricks need no special skills — just a willingness to practice — to accomplish such astonishing stunts as finding a card under seemingly impossible conditions, causing a card to rise mysteriously from the deck, reading the spectator's mind, and 27 other mind-boggling maneuvers.

Product Description:

Kids love magic. They love to see it, and they love to do it. Enter Joshua Jay, who started doing magic when he was 7 and was named champion at the World Magic Seminar (the Olympics of magic) by the time he was 16. His Big Magic for Little Hands is packed with 25 astonishing illusions for kids ages 7 and up. In other words, it’s sleight of hand for the small of hand.

These are tricks that require little prep time and dexterity yet are guaranteed to deliver a big payoff. The large format, oversized ext, and black-and-white vintage-style illustrations make Big Magic particularly easy to follow and kid-friendly. Here’s how to levitate your sibling several feet off a bed. Escape Houdini-like from tightly bound ropes. There are also impromptu effects that can be performed anytime, anywhere, like Spook-Key, in which an antique key mysteriously rotates in your hand. Each easy-to-perform feat is clearly illustrated with step-by-step drawings and accompanied by insider tips.

Joshua Jay is a master who guides his apprentices through every aspect of the magician’s art, from the first step―taking the Magician’s Oath―to how to minimize nervousness (Rule #1: Rehearse. A lot).

Product Description:

When party guests request a few tricks, be prepared. Ask for a coin, and perform some of the tricks in this book. Because you will not have been aided by special stage apparatus, the results will be all the more astonishing. As tricks with coins are so readily improvised, they are among the most impressive forms of legerdemain.
This book is the most complete treatise ever written on sleight-of-hand coin conjuring. Celebrated magician J. B. Bobo has gathered here the best and most useful of all coin tricks — not only his own, but those of some four dozen notable prestidigitators, including such greats as Robert-Houdin, Professer Hoffman, and — the greatest of all coin conjurers — T. Nelson Downs.
All the tested, traditional methods of coin magic are here. Bobo has added to these the best of the modern innovations, while eliminating all of the out-of-date and impractical sleights of his sources. You will learn all about palms, holds, flips, switches, change-over, steals, cuffing, sleeving, and other sleight-of-hand techniques; coin tricks requiring special devices are also included. The author guides how systematically from basic techniques, concealments, and vanishes, through integrated tricks, to complete routine acts (18 in all). His clear explanations are splendidly complemented by 510 of Nelson C. Hahne's crisp illustrations.
Sleight-of-hand magic has consistently earned the respect of professional magicians. If you are yet an amateur, this easy-to-follow manual — together with regular practice — is the surest route to professional-level competence. For professionals, this volume is a convenient encyclopedic reference that gathers in one place all the best coin magic from antiquity to modern times.

Product Description:
What is a self-working card trick? A trick that does not depend upon legerdemain or special abilities on the part of the magician, but a trick that works automatically because of the mathematics inherent in the card deck itself. Long practice and supernormal dexterity are not needed to perform these tricks, yet they are often among the most entertaining and most spectacular of all card tricks.
Some of these sure-fire tricks are simple, a good place to begin. Others were specially adapted from professional routines and are here presented for the first time for amateurs. Almost all of these tricks can be worked informally, with a borrowed deck of cards. Some also adapt to stage presentation.
Individual tricks in this book have sold for more than the price of the entire book. Amateurs can use them to get a start in magic and to feel, at once, the rewards of giving a professional performance. Advanced and professional magicians will find tricks to add to their acts or informal routines. Author Karl Fulves is one of the best-known writers and editors in the field of magic.

"The Magic Book" reveals the secrets of magicians―the simple techniques that will enable anyone to perform seemingly complicated magic tricks with relative ease. Clearly written and heavily illustrated―there are over 200 illustrations in all―this book guides you through the basic principles of magic using only common household items: a deck of cards, coins, rubber bands, and even a potato. The author then provides simple step-by-step instructions for hundreds of amazing tricks which he has perfected after forty years of painful trial and error. HERE ARE SOME OF THE SECRETS YOU WILL LEARN: CONTROLLING THE ORDER OF CARDS THROUGHOUT ANY NUMBER OF SHUFFLES PUSHING A STRAW THROUGH A POTATO MAKING KNOTS EVAPORATE MAKING COINS PASS THROUGH A HANDKERCHIEF PREDICTING NUMBERS THAT ANY SPECTATOR WILL GIVE YOU ADDING ANY 5-DIGIT NUMBERS INSTANTLY FINDING ANY CARD IN A DECK, SHUFFLING THE DECK AND FINDING THE CARD AGAIN ... AND MUCH, MUCH MORE! To help new magicians develop their techniques, Harry Lorayne provides a special “afterthought” section at the end of each magic trick where he discusses possible problems that most beginners have with the trick he has just explained. In addition to the practical instruction, Lorayne provides the philosophy of magic as it has never been taught before.

Magic Tricks - 50 Simple, Fun and Quick Tricks Book (How To Be the Life of the Party)
 
Product Description:
Do you want to learn some easy magic tricks to show off at your next party? Are you looking for easy magic tricks for kids? Or do you just want to learn a few simple tricks –because that is the way you are?

If any of these are true, Magic Tricks – 50 Simple, Fun and Quick Tricks Book, is what you need. All the tricks that you will learn are just as the title says. They are simple to learn, quick to perform, and fun to do.

Here are just a few that you will learn….

One of the more popular magic tricks is both baffling and entertaining. It is the Impossible (and Impassable) Corks trick. This magic trick baffles just about everyone that it is shown. In fact, you can actually show the people how to do it and they, still, won’t be able to do it. This trick has even stumped Ph D’s in engineering for hours.

Now if you want something less challenging, read about how to levitate a cup. We guarantee you that as soon as you are done reading the trick you WILL be able to make that cup float. Kids really love this one.

If that trick isn’t enough, learn how to “call” a coin flip, correctly, one hundred percent o f the time. Again, those around you will never guess how this trick is done either.

The magic tricks in this ebook were purposely selected to accomplish three things. They had to be easy to do, they had to be fun and challenging, and they had to use something that you would find at a party or at a dinner in a fancy restaurant (or have on you, like a deck of cards.) These tricks use bottles, napkins, coins, paper money, straws, bread, utensils and more.

These magic tricks are also rated so that you will know how difficult they will be to learn. Over three quarters of the tricks can actually be learned in 5 minutes or less, but there is only one trick which takes 15 minutes to master. This one trick is one that you will love and will certainly amaze those with you. It involves balancing a coin on the edge of a dollar bill.

What more can we say, if you want to get people laughing and talking at your next party or dinner just learn how to do magic tricks. We are quite sure that the tricks in this book will easily fill that need.

If your children want to learn some easy magic tricks just get this book and give it to them. They can devour it and will be back showing off their new found knowledge in no time at all.

Or, if you just like learning simple tricks, by the time you get to the end of this book you’ll probably know how to do more tricks than you can remember.

The bottom line is that learning new tricks is not difficult, given the proper instruction, and the best way to do that is to get this magic tricks book entitled the Magic Tricks – 50 Simple, Fun and Quick Tricks Book.
