Default The Tarbell Course

Hi guys,

I was just wondering how many people own the Tarbell Course. I think it is essential reading for a serious magician. Does anyone have any favorites from the books? One of mine is Jack Chanin's "TV Surprise" in Volume 7.

Jesse

I own the Tarbell Course and find it invaluable.

It's hard for me to pick out a favorite effect. The parts I find most valuable are the comments he makes at the beginning of each chapter. His goal is more than to teach magic but to teach something that will help individuals with life. He teaches a lot of psychology within the pages of his courses. You can come away from his courses with a self-confidence to do whatever you desire in life.

With that said I will make it a point to go get it!

I apologize for reviving a thread this old, but I have a question about the Tarbell course. I was in a local magic shop yesterday and saw this complete set for $230. I thought that sounded like a lot so I started looking around and I can't seem to find it for under $200. Does anyone know of anywhere that you can get the complete set for a reasonable price?

Never mind, I found a used set from a bookstore in CA for $117. I ordered them a few days ago and they came in already. For being so deeply marked down they are really in good shape. The only flaw is that they are missing their dust jackets.

I've had the basic set since the early 1980's and added the newer volumes as they were available to me. But for those like haroldross you may be interested in getting the companion books that provide Bible lessons that can be brought out using the effects from Tarbell. So far, there have been two volumes published covering the Tarbell volumes one and two.
