Ok, I will start learning magic starting with coins. I just got an eBook off of a friend called, "Modern Coin Magic by J.B. Bobo" Is this a good book (eBook) to start with? What are your opinions on this eBook and J.B. Bobo?

Another question, is it possible to learn and do coin magic using nothing more then rgular U.S. pennies?

Excellent coin book to start with and has quite a number of tricks that can be done with coins smaller than a half dollar.

Pennies are not very visible and can be difficult to handle. Quarters would be better.
Depending on you hands even some sleights with quarters may prove difficult.

Excellent book. Starting with coins can be tough however. You may want to get a card book and deck of cards to go along with the coins. The learning curve for card magic is much steeper (easier to learn) than for coins in my opinion.

An excellent introduction to coin magic is Michael Ammar's DVD/video: The Complete Introduction to Coin Magic. I highly recommend it. Michael Ammar is one of the best teachers in magic and his DVD are top-notch. Good luck.

I got J B Bobo's New Modern Coin Magic which is excellent, however as a complete newbie to coin magic I found that a dvd to watch how the basics worked helped a lot. For this is second Michael Ammar's The Complete Introduction to Coin Magic. With Bobo's book and Ammars DVD you can get moving quite nicely with coin magic. Takes A LOT of practice though!!

I like quarters so far.
