When party guests request a few tricks, be prepared. Ask for a coin, and perform some of the tricks in this book. Because you will not have been aided by special stage apparatus, the results will be all the more astonishing. As tricks with coins are so readily improvised, they are among the most impressive forms of legerdemain.
This book is the most complete treatise ever written on sleight-of-hand coin conjuring. Celebrated magician J. B. Bobo has gathered here the best and most useful of all coin tricks — not only his own, but those of some four dozen notable prestidigitators, including such greats as Robert-Houdin, Professer Hoffman, and — the greatest of all coin conjurers — T. Nelson Downs.
All the tested, traditional methods of coin magic are here. Bobo has added to these the best of the modern innovations, while eliminating all of the out-of-date and impractical sleights of his sources. You will learn all about palms, holds, flips, switches, change-over, steals, cuffing, sleeving, and other sleight-of-hand techniques; coin tricks requiring special devices are also included. The author guides how systematically from basic techniques, concealments, and vanishes, through integrated tricks, to complete routine acts (18 in all). His clear explanations are splendidly complemented by 510 of Nelson C. Hahne's crisp illustrations.
Sleight-of-hand magic has consistently earned the respect of professional magicians. If you are yet an amateur, this easy-to-follow manual — together with regular practice — is the surest route to professional-level competence. For professionals, this volume is a convenient encyclopedic reference that gathers in one place all the best coin magic from antiquity to modern times.

This really is a good book, easy to understand with excellent diagrams. The tricks inside really do work and really do impress, some of them are very easy to master and others are not, meaning that you can enjoy the book for quite a while as you gradually improve your skills. It is not however the final word in coin magic I have found that some of the sleights mention can be better executed in other ways, but this is just down to personal preference and others may disagree.

For any standard of Coin Magic; be it beginner or professional, Bobo’s book is one of the all time classic bibles on the subject of Coin Magic. Well illustrated and written, it documents hundreds of tricks and adds important notes after years of observation in his field. Well recognised in the field as one of the classics, it will be money well spent by anyone wishing to learn and add to their coin magic. The copy I bought a while ago has survived years of thumbing, and still gets opened regularly as a vital reference. A must buy!
