The Best Magic Books for Beginners
Visit your local bookstore or library, and chances are, you'll find lots of books on magic.

An illusion is any magic trick that to the spectator looks impossible or appears to break the laws of physics or is beyond explanation, but is actually a result of real-world means. Illusion often refers to the large stage magic tricks and those performed on television - the kinds with boxes where people are made to disappear, sawed in half, levitated and more. Despite the size difference, illusions and magic tricks employ the same principles.
