What is your favorite book or two of all of the titles that Harry Lorayne has written? I would like to get 2 or 3 this year after my budget rebuilds. (I couldn't resist the special that Richard Kaufman is running.) :)

Hands down, my favorite is "Close Up Card Magic". This book probably has more commercial card magic in it than any other book available.

Close-up Card Magic is my favorite book that he has written (although Personal Secrets and My Favorite Card Tricks were enjoyable too) but I also would never want to part with my collection of Appocalypse. While he never "wrote" all of it, he is responsible for it all as editor (OK Richard we know you were as well for a good while)and that always has something new to learn or one that you forgot about.

I enjoy some of Harry's early small books (almost like booklets)... I am quite fond of "Personal Secrets."
