A Classic Available After Ten Years
& The Anticipated Sequel

Two books from one of the most celebrated creators in the industry! Destroyers is the critically-acclaimed, best-selling book on the coin and close-up work of Troy Hooser. After years of scarcity, it is FINALLY AVAILABLE AGAIN, on the ten-year anniversary of its first printing. Written by Joshua Jay and filled with material that has shaped a generation of coin and card material, this book embodies the term neo-classic, hardbound and fully illustrated.

That was the good news. Here's the GREAT news: Moments is an ENTIRELY NEW COLLECTION OF MATERIAL BY TROY HOOSER. For the last ten years, Troy has developed a markedly different approach to close-up, and this collection features 25 BRAND NEW HOOSER ROUTINES, seeing print here for the very first time. Hardbound, fully illustrated.

"One of my biggest influences in magic, Troy Hooser, is the rare combination of elegant simplicity with diabolical methodology." —Homer Liwag

IMPORTANT: the limited edition slipcases have now sold out. The books will slhp separately without a slipcase.

Customer reviews for Destroyers & Moments


If you've read Bobo or Roth, you know what it feels like to have essential reading material in front of you. Troy Hooser's Destroyers belongs in that category. You'll see a huge difference between "traditional" coin work and the stand-up, very personal performing style you'll encounter. The routines seem to have a clear effect, but there's a lot of magic that happens between point A and B.


A Charming Chinese Challenge: Three chinese coins melt off a satin ribbon. It's simply one of the most interesting coin plots I've read.
Redirection Coins Across: Think 3 fly, but you're liberated from going left to right (or right to left)
Coins to Glass (using flipper): A coins to glass that is simple in handling, but perfect in its visual and auditory aspects.
Underhanded Coins Across (using flipper): If Sankey's Mr. Clean Coins Across got together with Liwag's CoinONE and had a baby, this is what it would look like.

If you've never used a flipper coin, this will inspire you to get one as the devious work you can do with one is provided in depth. You might want to get a matching expanded shell too. Those gimmicks will make your coin work cleaner and utterly impossible to your audience.

Buy it now. It will change your life...or your approach to magic.



Josh and Andi,

I got the Hooser books and I have to say that they are absolutely AMAZING! Not only the content but the production quality as well.

The first thing I noticed when I took them out of the box was their size. They are not the "normal" size of a regular book but that's what I really liked about them. It almost feels like you're holding a tablet in your hands which already sets me up for a fun read.

Troy's material has evolved from the first Destroyers book I purchased and Moments show his creative thinking.

I know working material and I can't wait to start putting some of this stuff in my restaurant work! Awesome job and I can't wait to see what you guys come out with next ; )

-Mike Eaton



This set has became my favorite book at this time.
Destroyers has given me some great ideas and inspiration it is for sure a book you must buy but make sure to get a Shell and a Flipper before you do because after you read it you will for sure want them.
I should know I never really did coin magic till I got this book.
Plus the books are beautiful!!
