    The Bible of Coin Magic!

    I purchased my much loved and well worn copy thirty years ago for twenty dollars, and it was worth ten times that. I'm happy for the 'new kids' who can buy it for less than half that amount today. It is without doubt the ONLY coin book you'll ever need...the best!

    It's coin-arrific-a-tabulous!!

    The best way I can describe this book is in an infomercial format: 'Tired of spending tons of money on coin magic books that repeat the same tricks you've seen in countless other books? Want something original and effective? Want something that will continue teaching you new things for months, even years?!? THAN THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU!!' In more or less words, these were the exact thoughts that were going through my mind when I first got this book. Absolutely THE BEST one out there, no question.

    This is the real thing!

    This book begins by teaching basic coin sleights and works through a large litany of coin effects. It even offers some great routines for the coin worker! If you're an uncle who just wants to make a coin disappear and reappear behind your niece/nephew's ear, or you want to learn T. Nelson Downs version of 'The Miser's Dream', it's all here. A great place to start and even better reference to constantly refer to. Everyone is fascinated by coins. Read this book, learn the sleights, put in the practice, and reap the rewards!!!! I use some of these effects listed within the pages of this book in my own act! Shhh...but don't tell how it's done!!!

    Awesome!

    I've had this book for four years, and I'm still learning new tricks from it. It's just got so much in it! The first half of the book is on magic with ordinary coins; the second half is how to use gimmicked coins. One warning: These tricks are almost all _hard_ to do and take patience.

    Disappointed

    My son bought this book, hoping to find 'real' coin tricks but was surprised by all the 'trick' coins that were needed. It's not very useful so far without the props.
