Ah, the future of magic is safe. The best way to preserve magic is to actually write it up. Apparently, nobody under the age of 30 can understand this, except Stewart Hooper.Anything by Hugard is very hard to understand; just a simple hinge color change took me about an hour of rereading to understand. (Although a very unique wink change) There are just not enough illustrations for the tricks and sleights.
For Royal Road to Card Magic, I never made it pass the 3rd chapter, cause it's so boring!
