Hi
What's your favorite trick or stunt from this book? After reading the thread about this book and how good it is, I'll have to check it out again. If memory serves me right, I was never that impressed with this book. I could be wrong since I have a terrible memory.

I'm going to dust it off and check it out again . Who knows, I might be doing something from it after all, and I just forgot where I learned it. I'll try to list the page and name of the effect, as soon as I find something worth mentioning.

This is for those who said it was a good book. What's the page number and the name of the effect that you like from this book?
I hope this post doesn't die a fast death!
Thanks
Ralph

Hi
I knew I couldn't trust my memory. I just opened my copy of this book and the page I opened up to was a very good trick, I've been doing for many years. Here the name and page. "Acrobatic Match Box" page 351 trick number 15.

I also found another I've been doing but I'll list that name and page later on.

Hi
I'm a little surprised no one replied, especially those who said how great this book is ! If it's so great, tell us what material you use from this book.

I've been meaning to get a copy of this book for years. It's out of print now isn't it?

Hi
I think it has been published again. http://miraclefactory.net/zenstore/index......ts_id=78

In my opinion save your money! I love all of the praise this book has received in a previous thread but not one poster who raved about it, would list one effect that was worth while.
I know of a couple but I'd never spend the asking price for this new release.
P.S
THIS BOOK IS FANTASTIC! :0)

I bought the book several years ago and am not overly impressed.
It has a lot of items like puzzles, jokes, and betchas that can be entertaining but is really lacking when it comes to magic. Just my opinion.

Hi Jaz
Did you ever perform the trick I mentioned in my earlier post? It still gets great reactions. People seam to really like things that move or appear to be animated by the Magician. If you like this type of effect you should give it a try. This effect is GOLD !

I have another trick I'd like to mention but I think this thread is dying a slow death. I really thought it might stir up some interest!
Thanks
Ralph
