The contents of this DVD couldn't be further from what the title suggests if it were called "Tricks with Silks" and featured a documentary on ice cream. People seemingly unaffiliated with the publisher of Modern Coin Magic or its author (J.B. Bobo) purport to have combed the massive tome for its shiniest pearls, resulting in this 31-minute DVD that delivers nothing of the kind. 13 basic techniques are demonstrated with a degree of proficiency that ranges from poor to adequate, followed by four routines that are similarly marred by flashes, flares and tells.

If the DVD had been marketed as a general introduction to coin magic I would probably be less irked, but to sell it as the "best" of Bobo's seminal text is just insulting.

Bottom line - anyone interested in learning coin magic from the ground up should spend the extra twenty bucks and buy New Modern Coin Magic (the revised edition of Modern Coin Magic). For the difference, you'll get hundreds more... [Read More]

I was watching this the other day in our local magic shop because a customer had asked me about it. I am a coin specialist so I thought I would have a look at it just to see...

Blah, blah blah, blah-blah-blah blay blay BLECH!

If you really watch the faces of the people on the streets in this video, the look on their faces is one of confusion, rather than being a look of astonishment. Magic is not confusion, and if you are confusing your audience/participants to create/accomplish and effect, then that is not magic. The only reason my rating is a half-star is beause that is a minimum requirement.

The only thing I can think to say about this video other than that, is that it does absolutely no justice whatsoever to the book from which it takes its inspiration. If you want and excellent video detailing the work in the book, then get the Ben Salinas videos.
