Reading John Carney's book Carneycopia gives me great pleasure everytime that I pick it up. I have learned more about the art of magic from this book than many others. I smile when I say this because I HATED this book when I first purchaced it years ago. Too wordy, not many pictures, difficult etc.
I now enjoy this book for the very same reasons!
What books have you all read with a similar experience? Hated it then-love it now. ;)
