On his website Al Schneider has a really awesome E-zine with a wealth of valuable and useful information. Take some time off to read and watch. You'll not regret the time spent there. Very inspiring.
Thanks, Al, for all the work you put into this.

Love anything Al does...The guy puts so much into his magic and it is complete from theory to practice...Just great stuff and beyond. His Ezine should be required reading. Just marvelous! -Mb

Yup, that pretty much sums up my feelings as well!

The guy invented stuff that is now considered "classic"! Anything he writes should be read by anyone who wants to do close up of any kind. Al Schneider is a rare breed of magician: A deep thinking theorist who actually applies his theories in practice and whose performance and technical prowess matches his intellectual prowess!

Am I wrong?

Wow. The article on Finger Palming was absolutely awesome for me.

How is it that I just heard about this a couple of days ago?! His articles on the double lift, finger palm and retention vanish are exceptional!

You should check out his theories in the New York Coin Magic Seminar DVD series, vol 8,9, and 10. Not only does he go into depth on how we process a magical effect, he puts theory into practice with demos' and explains a NEW handling of the classic pop up move! Al really thinks about theory, and is extremely analytical. You may not agree with all he says, but it sure gives you food for thought.
AT LAST - a NEW fun coins across!! MIGRATE is filled with laughs, magic, cool moves, lasts over 3 minutes, uses props, comes in a Poker Chip version or special Deluxe version with coins, and is about...BEARS!

Send inquiries to

Available at dealers EVERYWHERE - RUBINSTEIN COIN MAGIC- The biggest book on coin magic since Bobo's Modern Coin Magic, and the most important since David Roth's Expert Coin Magic! Hardbound, 500 pages, 20 chapters of state of the art coin magic illustrated with 930 crisp photos! A contribution chapter from over 20 of the world's top coin magicians! This will be the book against which all future books on coin magic will be measured! Already called a Modern Classic!!
And if anyone (USA ONLY) needs some of the coin stuff used in the book, shoot me an email at as I have some limited supplies of coins and props used in the book.

When Al will be completing his theory and practice with climaxes using credible props or effects of the same quality as his magic, he will have reached a summit.

A brilliant and rigorous mind.

I have a huge admiration for Al Schneider's work.

Amazing! I didn't know that was there either - and it looks like it has been there for several months at least. An excellent resource featuring a magic man I respect tremendously. I have had my head stuck in that site for two days now!

Dr. Michael: I agree that Al Schneider's portions on those NYCMS DVD volumes are great. Definitely different from the rest of the content there but great nonetheless!

Thank you.

This is a great site for tips & info. Does anyone know when Al's going to add to it? Seems the last entry was Sept 2009.
