I have been reading a few books, and watching some videos and every so often the name john ramsey comes up. now i know he came up with some subtleties of coin magic and was said to be able to make a coin vanish, whats weird is that when asked what method he used nobody knew! its just simply vanished! After hearing this i was realllllly interested because i love coins, small objects, and all sorts of cleaver misdirection. Does anyone know of any good books to look up that ramsey wrote?

Here's some info on John Ramsay. Not much was written by him, only about him. Hope this helps.

I'm a big fan of John Ramsay. That being said, I don't think the material he performed is that practical for laymen. Ramsay himself generally performed for magicians, so he added feints and moves to fool them, which are unnecessary for laymen. John Carney has a video that focuses on two of Ramsay's classics and talks about removing unneeded moves and feints from the routines. He also talks about it in a few of his personal materials. Paul Wilson also talks about Ramsay quite a bit. If you're really interested in learning the Ramsay style with practical applications, I'd recommend those guys.
