Many feel like the routines from Bobo's are dated. The routines aren't dated, the patter is. This is actually good for me, forces me to make the effect mine by changing it slightly and scripting my own patter. I don't want to sound like anyone but me. I do the same w/ Roth's routines and others that I've been playing with.
Again, Believe in Bobo.......
Yes! Finally a man with sense! Bobo's is the greatest book in the whole universe (well I think so anyway). I am a coin magician a bobo's has been the greatest purchase of my entire magic career. You may see in other topics my rants about bobo's. It is that good. And I agree with everything Dockarate said.
I will however suggest picking up an order consisting of only two items if you really want to learn coin magic.
Watch some of ITBTWC and read bobo's. You will be performing incredible pieces of magic that some only dream of.
Yes, visual is nice, and will undoubtedly help the learning process which is why ITBTWC However, the routines in bobo's will force you to develop your own style of magic, which is why it is soo prized. Take the adivce of everyone on here and pick up bobo's (number one) and In The Beginning There Were Coins (number two).
Hope this helps,
