If you are, then buy this book. Seriously, every magician from the aspiring amateur to the seasoned proffessional should own this book. It is massively comprehensive in what it teaches.

No matter what kind of magic you like, you can start learning it here. And if you aren't sure whether you want to be a card shark, coin handler, silk specialist or stage illusionist (or all of the above!) then you'll find all that in this book, so you can decide what you like.
You can buy a DVD with maybe five or six tricks for twenty pounds, or buy this book and get literally hundreds of tricks and the techniques to create thousands more.

This is where I started learning magic and I can say I have not bought a more useful magic text since.
