This book is a minor classic, and contains a wealth of practical, quality coin magic from one of the best writers of his time. Plus, the book starts at the beginning, teaching the basic palms and changes, before progressing to more advanced manipulations like the front and back palm. Also covered are coin tricks with and without apparatus, trick coins, and flourishes, including the roll down, and the steeplechase, known today as the coin roll. There is a complete description of the Misers Dream, as well as the original Expansion Of Texture, created by L’Homme Masque’. The book also teaches the Han Ping Chien coin trick, made famous by Slydini, and John Ramsay’s slow motion coin vanish. A wonderful book, definitely worth serious study. Highly recommended by David Roth, Conjuring Arts Research Center’s Master in Residence.
