How to conveniently interpret a routine

A place where beginners can participate, ask questions, and post their views. However, beginners typically ask a lot of questions about sources, tricks, books, and so on.

I looked at this, and it was in the form of a flow chart syncing each secret move with what the magician is apparently doing in the eyes of the spectator. It seemed like it could be a useful tool. But i most enjoyed reading the various creative routines, and the author's approach to presentation, what goes into making comedy work, and the psychological aspects of magic. Very thought-stimulating ,and IMO, of practical value for a performing magician.
