Which is the better of the two following DVDs (along with Bobo's book of course) for a beginner to start learning coin work from?

Michael Ammar "The Complete Introduction to Coin Magic"
or
Michael Rubinstein "Encyclopedia Of Coin Sleights Volume 1"

Thanks,
Jeff

I only have the Ammar DVD, but it is great! You also might want to check out David Roth's Expert Coin Magic Made Easy videos. I really like them too.

Rubistein´s DVD are more deeper than Ammar´s, if you think that later you will buy the other volumes, buy Rubinstein, but if you just one to buy one DVD buy Ammar´s.

There is a good review at http://www.coinvanish.com which goes over Roths, Ammars and Stones videos. I think the most people consider Rubinsteins more of a reference which would compliment any of your learning tools once you have a few routines down.
Magic is fun!!!

Rubinstein's video is NOT a beginner video, despite the title. Ammar's video is a good all-in-one intro to coins. Roth's first three A-1 videos are great. Also, Brad Burt's 3 tape series is good.

If your starting out in coin magic, Ammar is where I would start. If not starting out, go to Rubinstein.

I'd have to chime in for the Ammar DVD's, I have his, and they are a great tool for begginers, teaching what tends to look like advanced sleights, in very simple and easy to follow steps.

Zap beat me to the punch. He's right on with these suggestions.
