If you are not cheating, you are only cheating yourself.

Dutchco is about to put out some new Ebook: DUTCHCO. Get 'em while you can.

Martin Gardner's ency of impromptu magic is full of these, as almost every book by him. Also check out Andersons "Games you can't loose" and "cheat 'em beat 'em leave 'em bleeding" (by unknown).

Is there a Pt. 2, Bitterman?

I heartily concur with thoughtsexplorer's recommendations. I was not disappointed in Sigh, Man, Love All's
Book of Bees although it does not reveal what Marcel Duchamp guessed Man Ray placed inside the ball of yarn in between the steel plates.

Bob Farmer wrote this book. It's a great book(let) that gives a great out. You tell the sucker that you are gonna fleece 'em. This may be standard stuff to you old time hustlers, but when I read that it was like opening the door to the treasure room.

The book is actually titled, "Beat'em, Cheat'em,,Leave'em Bleedin' by Mister Big 'N' Fast Bobby Knuckles, Cheat, Womanizer, TM Instructor. It's $3 at any magic store.

Also, I wrote a column for ten years for MAGIC magazine, called Flim Flam in which I described many bar bets and scams. A compilation of these columns is being prepared.

"How to Cheat at Everything: A Con Man Reveals the Secrets of the Esoteric Trade of Cheating, Scams and Hustles" by Simon Lovell is one you may want to check out.

Rather than a part two, Thomas, I've included bar bets as an added bonus on most of my new ebooks.

Hey Bob,

I must say that I always enjoyed your 'Flim Flam' column in MAGIC - it was the first thing I turned to when I got a new issue. However I've heard the rumor of the compliation for a long time now - how close are we to seeing this available?

Bob, How about starting a topic each week with one of your flim flam articles?
I always enjoyed them. An open discussion on the flim flam would be fun.

By far, the BEST resource for cons, swindles, and general bets. Great book!

Paul Zenon's "100 Ways to win a tenner" is an excellent book with loads of ideas. Fits in the pocket too!!

I would say that the School for Scoundrel would be a great place to start. They have books and DVD on the shell game and fast and loose.

Paul Zenon's "100 Ways to win a tenner" is great, and as it has been said, is very portable.

Another vote for Paul Zenon's book. One of the best in this area.

Also, if you do a search for the Real Hustle on youtube, there are dozens of betchas to view. I'm referring to the typical proposition type bet.
