coins are quite fiddley, but pack an impact when learned. If you are going to try coin magic, get yourself on ebay and order some silver dollars/halfdollars. euro coins are smaller and much harder to learn with. be warned, a great coin routine takes a lot of practise, but having seen it and not being able to do it, its worth every second. a professional display of sleights using coins will garner respect not only from spectators but fellow magicians.

Just a few comments on to this.
It is also worth noticing that most coin gimicks come in the form of US coinage (Mostly half dollar), but alot of them are also available in UK format.
Few coin gimicks are available in Euro, and the ones that are tend to be cheaper in US format anyway.

I am more interested in the mentalism side of things. Have any of you read the encyclopedia of new stage hypnotism by ormond mcgill and if so what did you think of it?
Have read Derren Brown' s book and am going to see if I can get that book by Corinda. Anyone else have any other suggestions?

I just want to know how to start but don't have the money to invest initially, times are tough. I have a genuine interest in picking up some sleight of hand and learning more about mentalism, but as I said I don't know where to start or where to look. All I've been able to do is watch Derren Brown and Penn & Teller and try to figure it out by sight and it's not going so well :pac:
