The Tarr books are not good for beginners to learn from (though they inspired many), and neither is the Mark Wilson course. The former lacks any reasonable explanations of the material, while the latter is simply too big to drop into the lap of a beginner (though it is well written, with large sections done by Earl Nelson and David Roth, among others--there's a story to be written about who really wrote all that material and decided what was going to go into the book).
My book, Knack Magic Tricks, is now for sale on Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Knack-Magic-Trick ... 248&sr=8-1
While Knack Magic Tricks is 256 pages, I took an entirely different approach, one partially dictated by the format of the Knack series (of which my book is only one). I teach about 60 tricks--GOOD to GREAT tricks, and I take it very slowly for the reader.
I will be selling signed copies when I get them, some time in December they tell me. If you don't care about getting a signed one, then go to amazon and hit Buy It Now. :) I don't get paid based on the number of books sold, but it would give me some personal pleasure if the Knack Magic Tricks book sold as well or better than other books in the Knack series.
