I think it would be great if there was a magician or a group of the top magicians, specifically coin workers who could put out a Video, dvd version of Modern Coin Magic. It would be helpful if you don't understand the book fully. Just an idea..
I Understand the book just fine. But I think it would be a great idea for others. Smile

There is plenty of introductory coin magic videos out that pretty much cover the basic sleights and vanishes from Bobo's. (Roth's tapes, David Stone's tapes, Ammar's DVD, Brad Burt's tapes, etc.)

As for putting all the material in Bobo's on video, you would be hard pressed to fit even 50% of that stuff on a video. It also might be hard to sell because of the volumes and volumes of videos that would have to be made. It would be a massive project and probably never sell enough to be profitable. Many people would say, "I'll buy the book for $9.95 - $30.00 (depending on which version) and get all the material" and opt out of paying hundreds for it on video.

If would like to see J.B. Bobo himself doing a small sample of the routines from Bobo's check out Stevens Magic Emporium's Coin Classics Vol. 1. I have a desription of the stuff Bobo does in the reviews section of http://www.coinvanish.com.

I love the Bobo book, as a video is out of the question, there is a study guide for the book at:

http://www.zyworld.com/coinpurse/

There is a really long thread about this study guide at about.com. I do not have the web address handy, but I link to it via the coinpurse forum.

If you have any questions about this book, the study guide and forum will help you a lot.
