This is my review for the book.

Let’s judge a book by its cover; it screams quality both inside and out, the book is beautifully put together with a nice leather finish and metallic coating on the edging of the pages. It feels good to hold it in your hands and the size is perfect as it would fit easily in any pocket.

The inside even gets better!

There is a lot of nice bar bets, and I would say that most of them are bankable. That’s a fact, I also like the fact that some of the effects do require a little sleight-of-hand. This is a good thing. Gives us magicians a little advantage. There are a good selection of effects in this book. There is something for everyone in here. And it is well worth the investment.

I also would like to point out that this is a book on bar bets and tricks. And the difference from this book and one that you get at your local book store is...well I would have to say BAMBOOZLERS is the real work on bar bets. I praise Diamond Jim Tyler. I cannot wait for VOL 2...

I picked this up as well. I did know a few of the things in here already but the ones I didn't are well worth the purchase. In my opinion, one of the best things is that it fits comfortably right inside my inner jacket pocket so its always handy.

I use these, as most would, to win a free pint(s) when out with friends. This book paid for itself within two visits out with friends. I really don't think you can go wrong for this price.

My only complaint is that it had one little bet in here that I would like to keep hush hush, so no specifics from me.

Bring on the next installment. I will be waiting in line to pick it up Smile

This is a very cool item. Bar bets are great fun and this little book is loaded. I have several sources of bar bets and found many items in Bamboozlers that I had not seen before . Great job Diamond Jim! Is there a volume II?

I picked mine up through Penguin Magic. It is a nice looking little book. If you have a vast library of gotchas and bar tricks though, this wouldn't be worth your money. A lot is repeated stuff.

Bamboozlers Update:

Look for some excerpts from Bamboozlers 1-3 in the July issue of MAGIC, my regular column in VANISH magazine, GAMES magazine found in most good book stores and sporadically on the online show SCAM SCHOOL. One just aired last night on trick with lemons.

Volume Three was released one month ago and is literally flying out the door.
Volume One is back in print. Volume Two is practically out of print.
I have a special deal for all three on my website.

Does anyone know if this series will come back to iTunes store? I'm from Brazil, starting in this great universe and order the books from a bookstore is not possible!

Thanks in advance!
