THE BERTINI SYSTEM

Within the inner circle of advanced coin magic, the work of Giacomo Bertini has been known and respected for years. The depth and breadth of his work, though, has not been recognized for what it is: a radical new system and theory of coin methodology, one that leads to a fresh paradigm in the art of magic with coins. Few indeed can claim a body of sleights with coins so innovative and capable of wide application that it constitutes a system on which both classic effects can be redesigned and new ones founded. That is what Giacomo Bertini’s System of Amazement presents: his theory of “micro-misdirection”, his many original sleights, and a generous selection of the tricks and routines they make possible. The result is a new galaxy of utterly baffling coin magic, laid open for your appreciation and that of your audiences. Discover a whole new way of approaching miracles with coins: The Bertini System!

Giacomo Bertini is a true original in the field of coin magic. Growing up in Florence, Italy, Giacomo developed a passion for coin magic but could find little information on it. The Italian literature on coin magic was small and dated, and Giacomo had met no magicians sharing his interest. So he did something quite dangerous; he began to invent in a near vacuum. Dangerous because creation without knowledge of what has been done in a field frequently leads to new wheels identical to old ones. But Giacomo was lucky as well as gifted. His inventiveness avoided unknowing replication. Beyond that, it was genuinely innovative and highly deceptive, capable of amazing public audiences and magicians wise in the known ways of coin magic.

Giacomo went back to the roots of coin magic, embraced them and pushed them to new heights. And as he added fresh techniques to a growing body of sleights and concepts, he integrated them into what eventually became The Bertini System for Amazement.

While pieces of this system have previously appeared in periodicals, lecture notes and on video, this book is the first to present the system, integrated and fully detailed, with all the published sleights and new ones, along with stunning, professional tricks and routines developed from the system. Even the best informed in coin magic will discover groundbreaking ideas and beautiful deceptions in Giacomo Bertini’s System for Amazement.

I have been studying the book for a few days and just noticed the DVD today. It is great to see that I was doing things correctly and can confirm with the video.

This is a total different way of looking at coin magic than I have seen. I own all the great books, Latta, Piedrahita, Kaufman, Bobo etc. This is definitely on the same level and is a MUST own for all coin magic lovers.

I am very thankful this exists and Giacomo Bertini was caring enough to share this knowledge with us.

One of the best magic books I have ever read. Report this review

So I will admit this book probably is gold to me because I am so good at the classic palm. that being said i didn't have a lot of good moves to use the classic palm with. Well this book delivers. this book not only has excellent teaching but incorporates so much good material with the classic palm which a lot of modern coin magic does not do. that being said it isn't the only important move in hear. the reason I like this so much is that that i think if one was to master all the basics in Bobo's modern coin magic this is a perfect step up in slight of hand coin magic. It is definitely a must for any coin magician in fact i would probably buy it for twice the price with out flinching if i knew how well this fits with the other classic moves. Not only that it comes with DVD to how can you beat that.

FINALLY! A great book and dvd on Giacomo Bertini!
I happened to see some of his videos on You Tube by accident some years ago...and to 'coin' a phrase (sorry) ....I was, well, amazed. Sure, I was familiar with many of the great coin manipulators, yet it took me a long time to even begin to figure out how he was performing miracles right in front of my eyes.
Thank you Stephen Minch (and Penguin) for helping to get this great combination of detailed explanations, photographs and the accompanying DVD out ... for magicians everywhere.

Sure -- to master Bertini's moves of close-up coin miracles, it will require practice and dedication, but it's so worth it.

In fact, the thing that's truly 'amazing' about "Bertini's System for Amazement" ... is why it took so long for something like this to be released.
It's well worth the money and If you love coin magic miracles...get this NOW.
How to best describe Giacomo Bertini's fast-paced and surprisingly original style of coin magic?
Put it this way:
If John Wick did close-up coin magic ... he'd be Giacomo Bertini.
