Body Tricks: Stupid Human Party Gags by Michael Powell covers a lot of the basics and it's very inexpensive.

"Totally Useless Skills" by Rick Davis. 1991 "Summary: Provides step-by-step instructions for tricks and stunts such as spoon hanging, pencil tricks, odd finger snapping, and disappearing body parts." Paperback. 128 pages. Maybe a sixth of the book involves body work.
The presentation makes the magic.
