Effect: Illustrated by Richard Kaufman. An incredible collection of coin magic from David Roth, Geoffrey Latta, Sol Stone, Derek Dingle, and more! Well illustrated and explained. The David Roth section is somewhat duplicative of Kaufman/Roth’s Expert Coin Magic, but there is certainly enough here to warrant getting both volumes. Highly Recommended.

This 266 page hard-bound book has an incredible amount of coin moves and routines from some of the biggest names in magic. David Roth, Edward Marlo, and Slydini each have their own section of this masterwork. Each effect and routine is explained in exhaustive detail along with beautifully clear illustrations by Richard himself. If you are a coin magician, or an aspiring coin magician, you need this book. This collection of coin material will take your act to the next
