My favorite Danish Magician Book
The book is in three main parts with everything from close-up work leading into his stage show in a comic book format. The material is easy to read and understand and gives you insight to a comics perspective to magic. My favorite tricks are a pizza face effect and a mustache prediction.
The book is a little more expensive than other books but it is something that I will not get rid of. There is so much material unlike other magicians routines that help me create my own magic. I have seen Rune on several american TV shows and also know that he is a relevant star of our craft.

I have a copy, most of the people I teach have a copy. It is Mark Wilson's Complete Course in Magic. The Complete Course in Magic book have everything from self working tricks to large stage illusions. It goes through card magic, coin magic, mental magic, rope magic and so many other tricks and props that make this book the best value for the money when it comes to magic books.
I still use my own copy when looking for new ideas or something to get my creative juices flowing. You can get it in hard cover or paperback. If you want to be a magician or learn a couple of tricks, do not pass this one up.

The Best Portable Amplifier I Have Used
I have used this on Bourbon Street in New Orleans without any issues. The bars around can hear my voice inside clear without any distortion. This amplifier does get people asking about it all the time. My friend, a juggler also bought and uses one himself. One of our favorites is the included car charger. What a time saver. I have seen similar products for $300-$350. This is, at the time of writing, only $99. Do yourself a favor and look at the Hisonic Portable PA and welcome a great weapon to your competition.
Let me show you how I learned magic
If you cannot get to the library or find these books, they are also found on Amazons site too. Below are some referral links to the books.

Secrets for a memorable party
Before you start planning your event, think of what your guests and friends enjoy. Are they business collegues? Are they social companions? Think of conversations you have or things you have done. Do you go to bars with them? Do they sing karoke? Do you discuss sports? These are things that should be in your mind before you plan out your event.
Think about your guest list. It would be a shame putting enemies in the same room and having drama ruin an event. You should also think about the theme of the event when you are asking guests to come over. You wouldn't want your old boss listening to your favorite techno if he didn't listen or go to clubs with that type of music.
Ok, you have some ideas in your head but what are you planning. Do you want the party to be a social gathering? Is it a wine tasting? Are you planning on having people eat? Are you presenting something?
If you are having people socialize, some people on your guest list might be left out. A good way to have people feel more comfortable is to hire a magician. Having an entertainer bring groups together to watch something unexplanabe will loosen your guests up and they will have something in common that they can talk about.
If you are having a wine tasting, you might want to invest in some wine products such as nice glasses and decanters. You also could look into how your selections might be pairs with meat appitisers and cheeses. Taking a wine class couldn't hurt either. Making sure there are places to rest glasses near the seats are a must. It would be unfortuate to have guests hold glasses the whole night or spilling a beverage.
People love to eat but sometimes can be a difficult task if you aren't having the party catered. You are the host of your party and you should be socializing with your guests, not in the kitchen. Another thing to consider, if you plan on food, you have to schedule around peoples eating habits. Guests will get cranky if they are waiting on the food and who knows how much they will really eat.
You might want to present something in a party. It might be a tupperware party, sales pitch or possibly a something that people haven't experienced yet. No matter what it might be, a presentation might only last for a certain time. You guests will need to socialize after the presentation. You might use an entertainer here. With socail sistuations, distractions are very useful and can make the time that guests might be waiting for something, seem like the time has not been a factor. A magician or other strolling entertainment might improve the situation.
All of these suggestions are opinions but people love parties and I am a person.
