Roberto Giobbi has already written himself into magic history with his Card College series of books. What does he do next?
Secret Agenda is a lovely idea. The premise is that it’s a day book, with 365 card “tasks” or entries, and you are to read one per day. You gotta love that Swiss precision. Do we think that is how you will use this book, digesting one item per day? Unlikely.
But that's okay. What this book REALLY is is a collection of all the critical but tiny touches to improve your card magic. Sometimes it’s in the form of an exercise or a quote of wisdom, while other times it’s a full-on routine you can perform.
Along with the tricks, moves and finesses, there is plenty of advice, magic history and photographs. This is a well-thought out book that would be like having 365 separate conversations with Roberto Giobbi.
We absolutely LOVE the tiny bits of business that separate the good from the great, and this book is sure to bring a polish to your close-up magic. Highest recommendation.
