I've included a link for a huge book, 25 years in the making, by Paco Nagata (his stage name).  He's from the Spanish school and it's a full 500+ pages.  Paco is generous enough to share this for free.

Thanks Tom.  There are a host of topics he discusses that have been discussed here on the forum recently.  I intend to give this a thorough read.

I'm finding a lot of interesting things in this book.  With its size it will take a while though.

This is a VERY generous gift!

A quote from Page 39:

"In magic stores you do not buy magic, but tricks. Magic can only be purchased at home through practise, rehearsal, study, dedication, love and passion."

Yes Robin, a real labor of love from Paco.  And to share it, well you don't see that very often, 20 years of work.

Thank you very much to everybody for your kind comments!
And sorry for being so late in joining The Magicians Forum!

I have been doing a lot of repair and improvement in the book, regarding erratums, false cognate or false friends, spelling and grammar mistakes in the English version, as well as improving some poor descriptions of certain card routines that I have noticed kind of difficult to understand.
I have also improved some historical references making them more detailed and accurate...
Of course, those changes don't altere at all the general content of the book, but only make easier its understanding.
So then, I really recommend to everybody that downloaded it once, to download it again and to replace it to have it much better.
Again, endless thanks to everybody for all your appreciation and consideration!

Wow...

Welcome aboard, Paco, and thanks for your generous link to your book... From looking at the Contents pages, I'm thinking that will take some time to read!!

Paco, I am loving your book. It’s in that category that I would say is a ‘beautiful book’. Are you intending to eventually make it an actual hard copy-put into my physical library- type book? I would certainly be interested.

Writing is hard work. Write - Revise - Edit - Lather, Rinse Repeat.....etc. etc.

While I am a fan of hard copy, this is where the eversions shine. It's what been long promised, but seldom materializes.

Great job, Paco.

The three most important things in my life are: My wife, my son and this book. So, you can imagine how happy you make me telling that it is a beautiful book :-)
Thank you very much!
I have never printed it out since I consider it finished (in November, 8th 2014) Now that I have revised it once and again to make corrections and improvements during years, I believe that with the last update (five days ago; December 6th) It would be worth to print it out, specially since you told me that it is a beautiful book. However, honestly I think that it is ok to have it as an e-book. I've never intended to take it to a publisher since I'm nobody. My purpose were just to share my card magic life with any card magic lover's life.
I'm afraid that one cannot get printing that book cheap, so It would be quite ok keeping it as a e-book. Anyway if you would like to have it in your libary physically, please, feel free to print it out!
