July/August 2005 of Bookmarks magazine has a two-page article from a panel of authors and conjurers offering the best books on the art of agreeable illusions.
The panel includes Jim Steinmeyer, Michael Ammar, mystery writer Daniel Stashower, and author Ruth Brandon (Life and Many Deaths of Harry Houdini).
Twelve books recommended, including Royal Road to Card Magic, Mulholland's Book of Magic, Now You see It, Now You Don't, and David Marks and Richard's Psychology of the Psychic.
Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

Ruth Brandon? I think not. Conjecture is not a substitute for research, nor is arrogance a substitute for documentation.
