BAMBOOZLERS: The Book of Bankable Bar Betchas, Brain Bogglers, Belly Busters & Bewitchery- Volume One- The book teaches the reader how to do amazing and funny things with common objects found around the house or in a restaurant. It is a collection of bar bets, brain teasers, jokes, puzzles and magic effects that Diamond Jim Tyler has collected over the last 20 years. Many of the classics between these covers have been injected with DJ's own twists and sense of humor.
The book measures 3 by 5 inches, has a black faux leather-binding, has silver gilded edges, a black ribbon marker, etc. There are 75 effects, with 128 pages and over 100 illustrations. The foreword of the book was written by the prolific author Martin Gardner.
The book was designed as a reference guide to fit in one's shirt or pants pocket when out on a fun night on the town.
Review of Bamboozlers:
Let's judge a book by its cover; it screams quality both inside and out, the book is beautifully put together with a nice leather finish and metallic coating on the edging of the pages. It feels good to hold it in your hands and the size is perfect as it would fit easily in any pocket.
The inside even gets better!
There is a lot of nice bar bets, and I would say that most of them are bankable. That's a fact, I also like the fact that some of the effects do require a little sleight-of-hand. This is a good thing. Gives us magicians a little advantage. There are a good selection of effects in this book. There is something for everyone in here. And it is well worth the investment.
I also would like to point out that this is a book on bar bets and tricks. And the difference from this book and one that you get at your local book store is...well I would have to say BAMBOOZLERS is the real work on bar bets. I praise Diamond Jim Tyler. I cannot wait for VOL 2... (-Review by Badger from Ireland)
