I admit Bobo's Book can be overwhelming. I would say learn the Thumb Palm, Classic palm, and Finger palm...Then the Utility Switch, Bobo Switch, learn a few false transferrs... Learn a few Loads and a few steals...

After that start looking at routines. If you see anything that looks interesting or fun learn it...if it uses anything you have not learned yet...then look up the sleights it uses and learn those...

I think Bobo's book is like an encyclopedia... How much of it you absorb really depends on how much you wish to delve into Coin magic.

Do you want to be Like David Roth? Then going throuigh the book a page at a time, chapter by chapter may be what you will end up doing.

If you're devotion to coins is not that deep, then learn the basic palms, vanishes, utility moves loads and steals.. and then only what you need to perform the effects in the book that you want to learn... chances are you will end up learning more and more as time passes anyway.
