Are you talking about the "Scotland" edition or "Japanese" edition? Smile

Both are excellent.

I have both. The Japanese one uses a lot of gaffs, but is sure to fool magicians. The Scotland one is more skill, and has a few gems if you look deep enough.

Personally, I LOVE the way Japanese think about magic (assuming that "Five Times Five" is an accurate representation of their cultural "take" on magic). It's so visual and offbeat.

I combined two tricks ("The Appearing Deck" by Fujiwara followed by "BoxBack" by Maeda) and fried the guys at a local club meeting.

So startlingly visual (and rather simple to do)! I cannot recommend this book (the Japanese version) too highly.

The bullet is possible and looks great (when done right.) I talked about this in the coin section. Play with it and you will work out some neat coin stuff. I did. I also work stand-up.

Have fun
