Start by marking “The Magic Book: The Complete Beginner's Guide To Harry Lorayne Be the first to ask a question about The Magic Book.

As an inordinately shy and only child, it took all my courage to step up to the counter and ask a question of Lou, or one of the demonstrators, before deciding on my excruciatingly-deliberated download, which typically only totalled a few dollars. But then came the profound moment when Lou would take me aside, away from the crowd, and bestow the secret upon me—the highlight, and privilege, of the venture. The rest of the time, I was far too shy to make friends, or to ask questions of the experts gathered there, who so intimidated me. And of course, I could also return to the counter, over and over again, to watch the endless demonstrations of tricks from the bursting showcases. The group would take over a bunch of tables in the back in order to session well into the afternoon until dinnertime, or beyond. And thus was spawned a generation, or two, of close-up and card magicians. Ask any one of us: that is our holy trinity; that is our collective origin story. I hope my non-magician readers will indulge me as I, in this particular Take Two, step a little further into detail that may be of greater familiarity to the magicians among us.

I actually got Royal Road in my early adolescence and learned the fundamental techniques and several of the basic tricks.

I was also doing general sleight-of-hand close-up magic and had a steady interest in coin magic.

One day Lou took me in the back where he kept all the damaged books—ever a wondrous experience to be permitted to step behind the counter! From there on, I was truly off and running down the path toward serious artistic card magic.

Lorayne was a national celebrity as both a television performer and as a best-selling author—but that had nothing to do with card tricks. For all the books and journals he would eventually produce about card and close-up magic, he mostly kept that side of his life from the public.

There was always one name in the middle where Harry would feign having difficulty with, only to successfully name that person as a climax to the routine. The combination of super-human memory demonstrations with his New York-accented machine-gun commentary and outsized Energizer-Bunny performing persona rendered Lorayne as an unforgettable character.

Meanwhile, in my late teens and early twenties, there were two men on the New York magic scene who powerfully demonstrated to me that it was possible to thoroughly entertain an audience with little more than a pack of cards and a pair of hands: Harry Lorayne and Frank Garcia.

I admired and was inspired by both of them, and I learned from both of them—I learned a lot.

I studied their books, I attended their lectures, I asked them questions at the magic shop. Their influence remains palpable in my work to this very day. By my early twenties I was thoroughly obsessed with card magic.

As an amateur performer, I followed—or more accurately, I anticipated—the advice that Eugene Burger would codify in his writings a decade later.

But this was before I, or anyone else, had heard of Eugene, and before he ever set pen to paper to write about about magic. During these formative years, I concentrated on mastering a small repertoire of material, accompanied by original scripts, written down and well-rehearsed, which I would put to use when called upon to perform at social gatherings.

While I was constantly working on new things, that core repertoire, if I performed all of it, amounted to, perhaps, 25 minutes, which included a strong closer and an optional encore piece.

I always had a deck of cards with me in case the opportunity arose. I could vary the set with other material like coin magic, or some other close-up prop I might have put in my pocket, but the card set became the core of my amateur performance repertoire. So recently, when a student of mine happened upon a number of Lorayne publications and expressed an interest in them, I recommended Close-up Card Magic, along with a few other early titles.

And I found myself wondering what it would be like to study that material now, more than half a century after it was originally published—and half a century after I had studied and been shaped by it. But that was a different time; a time before the literature became properly obsessed with tracking the credit record. Self-working card magic par excellence.

Coins: I am not much of a coin man, but the material in this chapter seems really strong to me. Copper and Silver The most logical coin transposition routine I've read. The Traveling Salesmen A perfect handling of my favorite coin opener when there's a table.

Like Mr. Lorayne, I have come across many more "sophisticated" coin assembly routines, but this one seems to make just as much of an impact on laypeople Numbers: Your audience really will believe you are a mathematical genius when you perform this stuff.

The Missing Digit This one can be made to look like genuine mind reading, with no conceivable explanation. Mental Effects: The Larger the Bill I had forgotten about this one, but I'll start performing it a lot now.
