Simon is a great guy.

I need to get ahold of Ricky Jay but don't know how.

All I know of for Ricky Jay is his mgmt company Winston Simone, I would think it's just for bookings though 212-974-5322. I do know he has close ties to the Magic Castle guys and to the Museum of Jurrasic Technology out of Culver City CA, so those may be two routes to pursue. And yes Simon is an awesome guy and one of the coolest and a very funny, talented and innovative magician. I highly recommend getting a copy of his book, Billion Dollar Bunko, it has an introduction penned by our very own Todd Robbins.

Billion Dollar Bunko = How to Cheat at Anything

Yeah isn't "How to Cheat..." the paperback version though? I have a weird fascination with hardcover editions of books, hence having Billion Dollar Bunko and recommending it. Sorry for the confusion, I'm a book snob.

Also recommend his "methods behind the madness" dvd set, it even inlcludes his effect Heartless, which if you haven't seen is so simple and pure genius, one of those "Why didn't I think of that??" ones. He does market that effect as well pre-made.

Yes it's paperback, but still the same book.

Thanks for the clarification. I recommend no matter what form the book can be found in that everyone should pick it up, I'm just a little particular about my personal library.
