"Destroyers is filled with killer magic that is both audience tested and practical. Learning Troy's material is well worth your time and investment" —Bob Kohler
An immediate sensation when it debuted ten years ago, Destroyers remains relevant, innovative and “highly recommended” (Michael Close, MAGIC Magazine). Acclaimed author Joshua Jay takes you on a whirlwind tour of over forty routines and sleights, each one explained with thoughtful prose and distinctive illustrations. You will learn over a dozen coin routines that require no table, how to levitate a small mask, how to produce a bottle from nowhere, and how to produce a padlock from two rubber bands. This updated and expanded edition of Destroyers features over seven routines not originally included, as well as additional commentary and dozens of new illustrations.
The name Troy Hooser has always been associated with the underground magic scene. For more than twenty-five years, Mr. Hooser has quietly developed a repertoire of material that amazes laymen. Hooser’s material has also captured the imaginations of the magic industry’s thought leaders—Troy Hooser is, perhaps, your favorite magician’s favorite magician. In his first collection, he tips a lifetime of secrets and the theory behind them. These tricks wreak havoc on the logic of spectators. These tricks are Destroyers.
“Highly recommended for the serious student…Top notch and well thought out…Destroyers is the reason that the flipper coin has become so popular.”
—Dr. Michael Rubenstein, Coin Magic Seminar
"Destroyers has been instrumental in my own magical development. Any serious student of magic would benefit from careful study of Troy's entire body of work."
—Eric Jones, Audio and An Extension of Me
