David Ginn: The Magic 13

Comments: From the introduction: "People constantly asked David Ginn to tech them some magic, so from their requests this book came to life. This book is a collection of 13 simple magical mysteries designed to be easy enough for children to perform, yet baffling enough for anyone who wants to fool his friends at a party. From learning and performing magic you can teach yourself many things. Things like communication with people, skills with your hands, the self-discipline needed for work and practice, and ---most important---the use of your mind to create "miracles' and thus entertain others."
