Mine arrived yesterday. The first thing I realized was the quality of the dust jacket as well as the book itself. You can tell a lot of time and effort went into the making of this book. Mark did an excellent job!

The book looks great and I look forward to working with the material. I laughed and Jay Marshall came to mind when I noticed my copy number.

Since you've had the books for a while does anyone care to review the content? Only comments are on the production. Thanks.

Although I haven't finished the book in its entirety I can state that I feel the content is outstanding! 176 pages with over 30 routines and advance handling, 87 illustrations, 12 contributors including Todd Lassen, Troy Hooser, Mark Tams, David Neighbors, Chris Congreave, Allen Zingg, Garrett Thomas, Doug Brewer and others (no disrespect meant towards those whose names I didn't mention). Also some interesting background on the TT coin gimmick including its construction and basic sleights which form the basis for the handling in many of the routines. I haven't decided on my absolute favorite routines just yet as there's so much material to absorb and try out. I'm sure there'll be more than a few that end up as part of my repertoire!

Thanks so much for all of the kind and wonderful comments!!!! I am very happy and pleased to hear that those that have patiently waited for this project over the past several years are enjoying the work. This project was about a 5 year project with a ton of blood, sweat, tears and love poured into it. Personally, I think the material and work turned out well. I'm equally as happy to hear that the response is the same.

As you know, the first run of books took a bit to get out because of the number that came in and the process of how they are made. Currently, I am up to speed on all orders and any orders that get placed now will get immediate attention. Also, the turn around at the printing company is a bit faster now. So, it looks like turn around time now is around 15-20 days tops.

Once again, thank you to the coin fraternity for embracing the project with open arms. If you haven't ventured into this arena, personally, I believe you're missing out . . . both on the Triple Threat Coin Gimmick and the 3T book.

Hey Mark,
My copy came today and am already 16 pages deep into it. Very nice production and so far the contents is well worth the money & the wait.

I owe a 3CM from Schoolcraft. Can I use this prop for the tricks included in the book?

I will appreciate your feedback.

Thanks

"I owe a 3CM from Schoolcraft. Can I use this prop for the tricks included in the book?

I know that mechanically it may be possible (although Tams has stated that some of the routines are only possible with the Triple Threat), you may want to check to see if your ethics meter wants to allow you to ask this question. It was strongly suggested that only people who bought the original Triple Threat, and not the knockoff, should buy the book.

I'd be interested in what Tams may say about this.

It never pays to wait on something like this. Each book was individually printed with the purchaser's name on it. Quite a process, I imagine. I haven't heard whether Tams is still having them printed now that most of the demand has been met.

They did say that sales of the book are ok so you might be able to buy one from someone on the Café (I'm not selling mine!). The problem is that the seller will need to let Tams know somehow who the new owner is so that the seller won't be blacklisted if the new owner does something hinky with it.

I don't have my book with me, but there may be some contact info in it for Tams. If it is not posted here by the time I get back home, I will look into it and post further or send you a pm.

Good luck!

There was a printing agreement when the book was purchased.

It was also on the website where you ordered the book. I think the main point of it was that the book would not be pirated. If the book was pirated and the book had several different tells which were unique to each book printed, then the individual would be identified and then blacklisted as a pirate/thief.
To this point I have not seen any pirated copies of the book ...which is a great thing and also says a lot about the individuals who bought the books. There is still integrity in the magic world.

I do not know if the books are still available but the website is not available right now. perhaps someone can message Tams to ask him about it.

I ordered one recently from Mark. He's still producing them although the website is down. Best to PM or email him. He responds quite quickly.
