Mastering the Art of Magic by Eugene Burger

The seven small booklets written by Eugene Burger and published in the early 1980s, Secrets and Mysteries, Audience Involvement, Secrets of Restaurant Magic, Eugene Burger on Matt Schulien’s Fabulous Card Discoveries, Intimate Power, The Craft of Magic, and Rediscoveries have been out of print for years. Thanks to Richard Kaufman, they are now available in a new 230-page hardcover book, with almost 200 illustrations by Earl Oakes. These hard-to-find booklets have been collected in a completely re-typeset format with new essays by Eugene commenting on his past writings, his current thoughts on his tricks and routines, as well as updated tricks. Many feel these are the best books Eugene Burger ever wrote.

Professional Secrets
A Life In Magic by Geoffrey Durham

Professional Secrets is roughly divided between the in-depth study of magic secrets and routines, and the in-depth study of performance secrets, without which there is no magic. Throughout, Geoffrey will cause you to stop and reflect on your own performance style, and your whole approach to the art of magic. This is a book that will make you think.

Provides recommendations on the use of body language, posture, positioning, and movement. 60 original routines — from simple card tricks to major illusions.

The Alchemical Tools by Paul Brook
