The first book of its kind, it contains information you will not find elsewhere on the inside secrets of snake magic and snake charming.

Have you ever wondered how magicians and snake charmers touch deadly cobras on the nose and NOT GET BITTEN? Well, it is not just nerve. It is a clever trick that few people know how it is done. Both Al Mann and Devin Knight have done this trick many times. Al Mann learned the secrets in India from street magicians and passed the information on to Devin Knight. Devin performed this trick when he was visiting China. Both Al Mann and Devin Knight improved upon the basic secret and made it even more reliable and safer.

No, the cobra is NOT drugged or had its mouth sewn shut. This secret works with cobras that still have their venom glands and those that had their venom glands removed.

This is the only book that gives you detailed step-by-step information on how this trick is done. Many magicians are surprised to learn that it is legal to own cobras in most states and countries. Most places do not even require any special permits. Devin even gives you the online sources to buy cobras (both with and without venom glands) and have them delivered for you to pick up at your closest airport.

Devin gives you up-to-date information on how to do this trick as safely as possible, although there can be danger if you are using a cobra that has not had its venom glands removed.

Even if you never do the trick, this eBook is worth reading for the knowledge contained within. The secret will fascinate you. Everything you need to know about how the trick is done is fully explained in this eBook. The few magic books that even mention this trick gloss over it without revealing the REAL METHOD. This is the first book to reveal secrets normally only passed from father to son.

This is a must read for Al Mann fans, and covers the experiences of Al Mann who planned to put this trick into his stage act at one time.

BONUS EFFECT: ROD TO SNAKE - In the Bible and other religious writings, it tells about magicians who cast a rod on the ground and it changed to a snake. Was this just a story or is it possible to do it? The trick can actually be performed and is performed today by some street magicians in Egypt. This eBook give the real method used and even tells you what kind of snake you need and where to buy it. If you so desire, you can perform this trick today and create a sensation. Smile

If I'm going to take my life in my hands, I'd rather learn it from Youtube.

I have no interest in touching Cobras any time soon, but this looks like an interesting read regardless!

I'm guessing in order to "touching cobras without getting bit" you must own a cobra.Thats just crazy !

About 20 years ago,I saw the late Al Robbins, magician, and herpetologist (and, at one time, Jay Marshall's agent) close his act by producing four live rattlesnakes from a dove pan. The production got the audience's attention!!!

The real "production" was watching backstage, as Al LOADED the dove pan with the four, very active snakes!

It reminded me of the "Hokey Pokey" gag: "When the guy who originated that song (and dance)died, the undertaker had a frustrating time (He had a hekkuva problem, putting the guy's both feet in the casket! --one always came back out!)

I spent an enjoyable evening, visiting with Al in his home, and he explained that he had performed a "ductectomy" (his term). He had to "kill" the mice that he fed those rattlers.

The snakes would strike him as he picked up the "handful" of "wiggling" little beasts. He closed with the bit. (How could one "follow" that???) His hands would be bleeding from the puncture wounds.

I wonder if someone in China will "knock off" this!!!

When I was a teenager, I did magic, fire eating, and "lectured on" a python (about 15 feet long) draped around my neck, while working in Mickey Mansion's Ten in One. I've long since ceased the snake lecture, and the fire act.

The review on Lybrary.com is concerning to me. Can the authors speak to that?

I think I'll stick to safe things, like getting out of manacles underwater.

Can anyone shed some light on whether or not this method is harmful to the animal?

I have received confirmation that the methods are inhumane to the animal. Really wish this was added to the disclaimer somehow.

Thanks for confirming that, Tempests

I was on the fence about buying, mostly for curiosity, but if it involves cruelty I'll be giving it a miss
