For a time-tested campfire sleight of hand, you need to study with the master. For decades, Michael Ammar has been the go-to source for workaday magicians. His vintage 1980s how-to tapes, available on DVD, offer concise instruction, even if Ammar looks more accountant than magic man. The Exciting World of Magic features a classic card trick about an hour in called "Out of This World." At the very least, you'll be able to convince your kids you've got the power. (ammarmagic.com)
