I'm looking for a book that will teach me the basic effect of causing a spectators hands to inexplicably get stick together and they cannot pull them apart no matter how hard they try. I've wanted to add this effect to a simple coin bend routine I do for a while but could never find the means to do it. I was hoping Someone out there would be able to help me out.

P.S if there is a specific name for this hypnosis effect excuse me advance because I'm a complete novice when it comes to hypnosis effects.

It is not a specific effect. It is a pre-induction tester more than anything. Aside from superglue there is no guaranteed method of getting any spectators hands to stick. You might get half, or a bit more if you are good. If you are very good, even more. But no one will get it every time, guaranteed.

Having said that, check out the work of Anthony Jacquin, and his RIPPED CD. No specific method, but great ideas that make it more likely to happen.

Thanks for the mention.

My book Reality is Plastic does not feature a 'handlock' as it is sometimes known, but a free supplement to it does.

You will find the traditional hands above the heads hand lock in Jon Chase's book Deeper and Deeper. It could be adapted to a coin bend assuming both their hands were together.

In the impromptu section he outlines a single fist lock. Best start there.

Okay awesome thanks a ton for the info and suggestions, I'm not too worried about it not having a 100% sicces rate as I will do this with an audience and assume it will hit for atleast ONE person who I can then bring up on stage and go into a routine with.

Besides the works already mentioned, Rory Z. Fulcher covers this in his basic guidebook.
