"Luis Piedrahita is one of the most brilliant minds in all of magic today."Juan Tamariz
"Luis Piedrahita is one of the world's great magical thinkers but his skills don't end there. My only issue with him is that he's revealing these great ideas and effects to the world and not just reserving them for me!"David Blaine
"His presentations are charming and original. He has developed new sleights and made improvements on old ones. And for magicians who are aware of the importance of knowing not just how an effect works, but why, the essays on magic theory alone are worth the price of the book."David Roth
I bought this book a while ago in spanish, and man, it has BEAUTIFUL effects. I had a lot of coin gimmicks that I didn't know how to use and this book explains a lot of routines with different gimmicks and some reaaaaaaally useful sleights. The huddle palm (empalme del aberroncho in spanish) has become my go to palm when it come to hide several coins and still making the hand look completely empty. This book is without a doubt the next big thing after Expert Coin Magic and Modern Coin Magic.
First thoughts. This is a great book! It feels a bit like a tressure. The tricks feels very personal and inspiring to read. Luis is really great!They layout is not perfect but what a heck.
I was disappointed when I initially skimmed this book. When I returned to actually read it, I realized that it is actually a treasure. For instance, his coin turn over, which I've seen him do a number of times, is completely believable even though you know as a magician he has to be doing something tricky. I do wish that I could get transcripts of his patter; not to copy it, but understand the misdirection hidden within it.I'm still reading it and feel certain it contains many gems.
When I first saw this book, I didn't really think much of it... mostly because I didn't really know who Piedrahita was. That was until I saw his CSB routine which made me want to look more into his work. I can without a doubt say that this book is one of my best purchases since I started magic. The routines are beautifully constructed and there are some amazingly useful sleights taught in this book. 10/10 would recommend.
This book is not only filled with exceptional magic, it’s probably one of the most beautiful books published. It has an intrinsic sophistication that makes you want to read and reread it again. Only VI publications can rival its quality. I’m so happy I was able to get a copy through VI.
This book give insight to sleight of hand Coin Magic. I have just begun to read the enclosed and hope to achieve some oof the information for the book. I feel that during this stay-at-home situation this is a great way to learn Magic! I give this book Five Stars!
One of the very best resources I have for learning truly amazing coin magic.The effort is worth it- every effect is so strong and the movements so unassuming. Luis is truly a genius with coins.Just wish there was accompanying video footage for each routine...
I really love this book, well written, the photos are clear and plentiful, the magic is creative, original and incredibly practical. Piedrahitha is a master of of craft and its a pleasure to read his instructions. A nice finishing touch is the page marker. The book is of excellent quality. I have a number of the classics but this is bound to become a classic for the next generation. Get this!!!
