This is a quick note to mention what a GREAT book is "Scripting Magic" by Pete McCabe.

This book will help everyone that reads it: PARTICULARLY young magicians.

Really top notch, Sir! Thank you.

I agree with Dave. This is a wonderful book. I had forgotten how great the script is to the "41 Cent Miracle" on Michael Ammar's ETMMM. And, I just might have to try David Regal's "hotel" presentation for his Disposable Deck.

I just started reading the book and it is excellent.

Pete's script for "I Care", a double card to pocket handling, is magnificent.

I really think that Pete's book is the best book out there.
It's like "Now I Get it"!

Robert ,it's not a bad idea to do David Regal's "hotel" presentation for his Disposable Deck.
But I think the point is to come up with your own scripts and make the trick yours.
I don't know how far you're into the book. But you have to read Michael Close:A little bit of the truth
interview.It really open my eyes. Now am plowing a different field.
I can't say enough about Pete McCabe's Scripting Magic.
Thanks!
