The book is a staple in card magic that will not only give you a fantastic start into card magic, but will give you an excellent source of sleights and effects for years and years to come.
I bought the Card College series years ago, and even after making a successful living in magic for over a decade now I still benefit from the books.
Everytime I flip through the books I find something new, or something I'd forgotten, or something that I'm now ready for that I wasn't before. You simply must get these books. If you are even reading any reviews on these books just add them to card now.
It's well worth it. A wonderful, wonderful book. I've been doing card magic for about three years and I'm so angry I didn't get the card college series before now!
I thought I'd just buy the first book even though I most likely knew most of it content already. On almost every sleight I got lots of tips and I have developed new handling that has improved the smoothness. The book is extremely clear, well written and is neatly illustrated.
I wished everyone who wanted to become a good card magician would start with this book. And for those of you who think you're good enough for it: You most likely aren't. An excellent book. Over pages long. Well worth the price. I plan to get all 5 volumes! I have not finished reading this yet, but I am almost to the halfway point.
I gave this 5 stars because it is just what you expect, good and it cannot be better considering 4 plus more volumes. It is teaching the basics in great detail. I proboly have no idea what the basics are, for I have one had a course in the keycard, marking your own cards and ya. It is also inspiring, for it inspired me to get more magic books. I am only 12 years of age, but I have not gotten anything in this book that I cant do.
I wouldnt have gotten it if I hadnt got it for christmas, but if volume 2 was 50 dollars, than I would still get it. Awesome book! Must have.
This is a card-worker's bible. Don't hesitate to add every volume to your cart and get started on the road to card mastery.
Don't even think about the price, it's an investment in your art, and it's well worth it. Card College Volume 1 is a great book for people who are just starting out in magic. In this book you will learn a ton of moves that will be crucial to your career in magic. In this book you will learn many important moves such as shuffles, cuts, forces, and many flourishes.
This book is crammed full of material and it will take you quite a while to get through all of the stuff making it well worth the money. This has helped me so much in developing an asernal of card magic.
Even by reading Giobbi's descriptions of sleights I already knew, I improved them. So yes, read the whole book!
It is all gold material! Cannot find a more clearer and incredibly well structured book on card magic expect maybe the next 4 volumes :P. The "Card College" series of books and dvds are a very effective and efficent way of learning the art of card magic.
Roberto presents the lessons in a clear and concise manner and explains in depth all the various nuances of each move and sleight. I highly recommend this series, especially for anyone who has a desire to become a great cardician. I've been doing magic for over 20 years. Not professionally but as a hobby. Anyway this is a great series. Don't have them all yet but plan on getting them.
Perfect for beginners but also good refinement for experienced card guys that overlooked this in the past. Card College is to Card magic what Bobo's book is to coin magic. Load more reviews.

Tags: beginner book review card college card magic card magic books opinions sleight of hand. I'm about 3 weeks into card magic, so I barely know anything about this art yet. I went to my local 2. He spent at least an hour going through almost all the individual books that he has on his bookshelf with me, after that, he went on and taught me more about the art of magic. Since this is my first magic book, so I really have nothing to say about it besides that fact that I'm in love with it so far cause it's a godam beautiful MAGIC book!.
