I'm just seeking some advice on the book. Is it any good? I'm new to the arena of cheating but I'm interested in it.

WOuld this be a good book for a beginner?

Any advice is appreciated.

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Yes I bought this book its a funny book doesn't teach you anything except I would guess the mentality you have to have if this is the profession you wanna do in your life , its very vulgar and the f-BOMB and a lotta outher bomb are dropped good read doesn't teach you any actually moves but a good reference for the mental state you have to have

Ahhh I love this book.

I starting reading it and I couldn't put it down.


And yes this is a great beginner book. As a beginner you want material that will get you excited and this is a great book to do just that.
you can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all the time but never all of the people all the time.

I don't know anything about the book but I sure fooled Teller when we met up last night. He's a down to earth guy with a good heart. A very good heart.

May the Lord Bless Him and his Family.

Although it's funny my understanding is it is based on real life stories and so on.

I would really doubt that it came from true stories.

I want to belive that but I wouldnt bet on it.

It is a moderately entertaining book, but it seems at times like it was telephoned in. Definitely not the book to get if you are interested in actual techniques. I'd give it 5 out of 10. If it's stories you want, there are better sources (e.g., Fast Copmany, The Unsinkable Titaic Thompson, Amarillo Slim's autobiography, etc.).

Personally I think it's worth it even if it's just for the false cover under the dust jacket.

Did you discover any "Wisdom" in the book?

I haven't started it yet, I picked it up a week or so ago and it's on my nightstand. I expect it to be pretty much on the same level as their other books, (Cruel Tricks for Dear Friends, How to Play with Your Food) which I found to be a lot of fun.
Woke up.
Fell out of bed.
Dragged a comb across m' head.

It was a fun book. I don't know how much "wisdom" is in there. But there are a few things in there that may make you think a little. Mostly it's just a fun little read.

It's vulgar, it's offensive, and morally - it's beyond questionable. In short... it's hilarious.


Amazon has a preview of the book as well to see if it's for you.

And my local Barnes and Noble had a stack of them on sale for $4.98 each, making it even harder to pass on.
