Worth every coin! The reference book for coin magic. No magician should be without this book. The book is appropriately broken down into chapters that go from the basic sleights to most major facets of coin magic. You start with the foundations of coin magic, the utility switches, the vanishes, and the palms. There are literally hundreds of tricks to choose from in this tome so plan on spending a lot on time on the varied chapters. Aside from the excellent basic teaching of palms, switches and vanishes, you get chapters transpositions, color changes, gaffed coins, shells, sleeving, and finally full routines such as the Miser's Dream.
A few downsides to this fabulous book. First, the book is no longer "modern" as some of text is from a by-gone era. Largely, the text translates well into modern patter and attire. Second, a lot of the new, types of coin gaffs are not covered by this book. Overall, this book could keep you busy for years. Did this review help you?
Do you want to respond to this review? Add to cart. This book has been in my library for years, and it continues to be a constant source of great information and magic for me.
There's not much to say but that there is no other resource on coin magic that even rivals this book, and if you are into coins you just simply have to get this. It's an amazing book that can and will turn you into a coin master if you learn from it.
This book is essential. Just get it already! This is a must have for any magician at any level. If you're new to coin magic, then this will give you the basics. Even if you're a pro, this book will give you ideas for new routines. For any magician into coins, it all starts here. I usually try to stay away from reviewing classic texts of magic, but this is a MUST. It doesn't matter how long you've been into magic for. You need this book. COin magic is almost all of what I do and I learned a ton from this book.
A few of the tricks are a little outdated but others are really good and can work wonders for you. WIth a lot of them, you can grab a coin and do a full 20 minute show with it. Others might require 2 or 5 coins. Some use gimmicks, some aren't gimmicked. There is also a really nice miser's dream and historical section towards the back of the book. My favorite part is the Okito story, how it came to be. This is the bible of coin magic! If you are into coin magic in the slightest bit, then you need this book!
This is like an encyclopedia of coin magic. Bobo goes into grave detail discussing many different vanishes, appearances, tricks, etc. He even covers topics such as shells, coin magic on stage, and sleeving. There are so many illustrations in this book; it makes it very clear and easy to learn.
I highly recommend it! For the serious coin worker. This book is obviously the Bible for coin workers, but if you're just interested in coin magic and are looking for a couple of good coin tricks I think you'd be better off with Noblezada's coin magic DVD!
This is a very thorough and in-depth book, but I think there are better options for those of you looking for coin routines to add to your acts. Get it. That's my review. I'm kidding, there's more. Just imagine "In the Beginning There Were Coins" but in book form and with a truckload of more material.
Every single magician needs this book.
