Diamond Jim Tyler has three pocket-sized volumes of "Bamboozlers" which is all anyone should ever need! [/quote]
The three book set of [i]Bamboozlers[/i] by Diamond Jim Tyler (available from him [url=http://djtyler.com/product/bamboozlers-collection/]here[/url]) proved to be a great recommendation, thanks for the tip. His Penguin Lecture ([url=https://www.penguinmagic.com/p/7726]Diamond Jim Tyler LIVE 2[/url]) covers a lot of content straight from the books, and is a good companion source.
[i]101 Bets You Will Always Win[/i] by Richard Wiseman (from the terrific youtube channel [url=https://www.youtube.com/user/Quirkology/videos]Quirkology[/url]) also turned out to be a great choice, and has similar material; I also highly recommend it.
I can't recommend Paul Zenon's [i]100 Ways To Win a Tenner[/i]. The bar betchas included are decent enough, but the explanations are not - they're overly wordy, and don't just get straight to the teaching.
Brian Brushwood also has a couple of good books with bar bets and more that he's produced under his [i]Scam School[/i] title.
