From Javier Surja on the Coin magicians page on Facebook:

"At last, one of Christmas gift I received has completed this special trilogy. The coin magic book written by Michael Rubinstein is joining the other two books. Three close friends (Roth, Latta, Rubinstein) joined by their books. I'm only missing a book of Mike Gallo to complete the New York Coin Magic Masters. Anyone knows if Mike Gallo will write a book?"

Thanks so much! As for Gallo, not at this time, but I have mentioned it to him more than once Smile

Found this review by David T. on the Merchant of Magic website:

"This book has to be one if not the best book on coin magic around at the moment. Michael explains the slight’s tricks and routine’s with such great detail I just can’t put it down! Every coin or general magician should get this book, but be quick as it’s already in its second print run".
(Editor's note - Rubinstein Coin Magic is now in it's FOURTH printing.)

I did this on my second Penguin Live lecture, but wanted to add a couple of jokes I forgot to use the first time around. It is taught in Rubinstein Coin Magic, and it is really Thumbthing. Enjoy!

One of my favorite routines from Rubinstein Coin Magic. The Purse Routine offers a new purse count and vanish sequence that fools magicians and laypeople alike. Enjoy:

From Christopher on the vanishinginc site
(Four stars)
"Wow. Dr. Rubinstein has out done himself with this tome. The foundations of New New Modern Coin Magic are contained therein. And it feels like it contains a foundation. If your hands start to cramp from practicing the sleights and routines you can take a break and do curls with it. If you keep it by your bedside you can use it to bludgeon burglars to death. Dr. Rubinstein's writing style may be a bit dry for some but he is a man of science by training so, whadayagonnado?"

New review on Amazon. I love this review because the anonymous reviewer seems to dislike me (because I didn't accept a Facebook request), but loves the book! A bit of info: I don't typically accept friend requests on Facebook in order to keep my page private for close friends and family, but I guess the guy didn't respect that.
I still have some books from the fourth printing available for signing, and come with a free gift, so hit me up if you haven't taken the plunge yet! Here is the review:

A gold mine
Reviewed in the United States on April 5, 2022

I wanted to give this book a bad review. I personally didn't care for rubenstiens performance style and I requested a him as a friend on Facebook since we had numerous mutual friends but he sent me a message I thought was rude. But as I dug into the book I was impressed. It is a masterpiece. I took my knowledge and skill to a whole new level. It is so well written and easy to understand. Tons & tons of photos . The history of each slight and the detailed descriptions are amazing. Maybe the best book ever written. Of course, everyone tells you to start with bobo but I would look say read hugards coin magic book first just to understand the basics. This book doesn't explain things like finger palm or simple slights. It assumes you know them. It is a super great book.

Someone just asked me how many of the routines in Rubinstein Coin Magic are done stand up, and without a table. I responded that almost all of my routines are standup, but with over 100 routines it would be hard to count all the ones (there are many) done in a walk around situation. So, here is the Table of Contents for anyone interested in what is in the book (this may have been listed somewhere earlier, but I don't think many have the time to look back and read through this extensive thread). So, here it is:

A nice review just came in from Javier Surja on Facebook:

"3 months and a half later I can comment on this Michael Rubinstein's book. It covers all the fields at coin magic. It starts with techniques, his insights, the classics,... and that's only the tip of the iceberg. It follows with an orderly classifcation of tricks depending on the props you need to do them. It is full of references where you can check the origins of the techniques or tricks. It depicts techniques with some props (purses, cards&coins, okito...). In general, is a book that includes a whole life dedicated to coin magic. Of course, all the tricks and techniques can be found in New York Coin Magic Seminar, but this is a book that includes that and more.
Really a must have if you like coin magic."

Thanks so much Javier, for posting that great review. If anyone is interested in getting a signed copy and an exclusive free gift, hit me up at my email listed below!

Wonderful! I really like the surprises you build into some of your routines like peeling the silver off the coin! And I loved being surprised by the appearance of the coins in your matrix. Great misdirection!

Thank you Kanawati! I wanted to give a reason for the clear coin, but not have people examone it because once examined, t looks just like a clever switch. This was, it is much more startling and more magical!
