Slight of Hand by Edwin Sachs just might be the number one best book ever written on magic. The standard textbook on how to become a magician. Sleight-of-hand feats and tricks with apparatus for amateur and profesional conjurers, and for both parlor and stage performance. This is the famous book that for many years has been the ultimate reference for anyone interested in magic by means of sleight of hand. All effects are performed with everyday objects or props that are easy to find: cards, coins, silks, etc. Magic of this kind can be performed anytime, anywhere.

How about a few quotes from Magicians you have heard of:

"...I beg to say that it is far and away the very best work of its kind ever published...I invariably recommend your book to all lovers of sleight-of-hand."- Harry Kellar This was taken from a letter written to Sachs from Harry Kellar.

"...My den contains a large collection of books on magic, but none has a cover so worn as Sleight of Hand, by Edwin Sachs." -David Devant

"Sachs Sleight of Hand is probably the single most complete book ever written on magic, certainly my favorite of the "classics". It includes both stage and close-up magic, chapters on technique, presentation, and all the peripheral skills necessary for great conjuring." -John Carney
