Hidden Agenda by Roberto Giobbi
That Roberto Giobbi is one of the preeminent authors in magic is well established. The Card College series secured Mr. Giobbi’s place in magic’s history. But for many, his boldest and most fascinating book is Secret Agenda, a collection filled with wisdom, advice, secrets, and fantastic tricks, all delivered in a “calendar” of magic, one amazing secret per day. It was the first of its kind, and a modern classic. Magic fans rejoice: we are pleased to announce a new collection, a spiritual “sequel.” Hidden Agenda has arrived.
Hidden Agenda contains 366 entries. Many readers will enjoy digesting one secret per day, while others will find it too difficult to stop turning the pages at each sitting. Topics range from clever deck switches to meditations on how to define the word “magic,” but each day of Hidden Agenda will bring a revelation of some kind. There are more photos and trick content in Hidden Agenda than the previous volume, and all the material described is as-yet unpublished. If you are a fan of Roberto Giobbi or magic in general, this handsome hardback volume (414 pages) is a must.
Just a few of the 366 entries:
- Gambling Stories
- Skinner on Marlo’s Poker Deal
- Seven Secrets of Life

- Hofzinser’s Glove

Just in time for the holiday season, this is the end-of-year release the industry has been waiting for. End the year with a pledge to use Hidden Agenda every day next year.
