Can we get you to chime in with the best books of 2016?  I am sure that one of mine will be The Aretalogy of Vanni Bossi  it is printed and bound in a way that great books should be.  The leather binding screams quality.

Some others from 2016?  I'm a book guy so I have lots of suggestions, but I'll wait until I hear from a few others.

I think it was a good year for books.

Besides Bossi, I guess I would favor the Sato and Parker books.

I also think the reprinting of the early Daryl books was quite important.

Lots to choose from.

Was Walton 3 this year?

Just working through John Bannon's Mentalissimo right now. Great content that stands with the best of Bannon. There is a thread devoted to the book here: Mentalissimo discussion

My friend, Jacob Grier, smoked me with a trick from that book. Even after he taught me how it worked, I was still surprised by the results!

And another vote for Mentalissimo, the Sato book, the Jack Parker book re-print, The Daryl's books re-print...

And Pit Hartling's In Order To Amaze book.

I'd have to go with Luigimar, just don't have the Sato or Hartling books.

Hey Tom,

I love Pit's book, but since you don't mess with the memorized deck you probably wouldn't dig it all that much.

Enjoyed the Sato book.  Love the fact that it had a DVD in it so you could watch a majority of the routines to see how Mr. Sato performs them.  I hope that's the in the future for more books.

Hi Mentalissimo is mental effects with cards it doesn't deal with a memorised deck. Pit Hartling's In Order To Amaze book does deal with a memorised deck.

I loved Mentalissimo & the Lovick book & Jack Parker's book.
Honestly I thought the So Sato book was an enjoyable read but the material was disappointing.
I'm about to check out the Vanni Bossi book.

I'd love to read Pit Hartling's book, but I've not used my memorised deck in years so I'm not sure if I'll use anything from it and currently can't justify the expense!
