SWITCH - Unfolding The $100 Bill Change by John Lovick - Book
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!
Few objects that magicians conjure with stir the imagination the way proper currency does. Money never goes out of style. Imagine being able to increase a dollar's value a hundred-fold. In the 1970s, a handful of American magicians encountered an Eastern European circus performer named Vlado, who stunned them all by doing just that! Vlado never published his revolutionary bill change, but variations quickly spread throughout the world of magic. Today it is a close-up standard, known as the $100 Bill Switch.

This book was amazing. I literally knew almost nothing about bill magic. It's been on my mind for a long time and I finally got it this year for Christmas. When I first started reading it, I really liked the way it was written from the start. Tim Trono and John Lovick as well as everyone who contributed are all great. It;s funny and they really do a great job and hooking the reader
As for the material goes, the stuff really varies. I found that I might not actually perform most of the stuff, but I will definitely take account a lot of it. I might work on some things and change them up to fit my personal preference, and you might too. There are a ton of great subtelties that I never considered before. Some stuff that you see but never realise before is in here too. Like how to hold a bill the right way, how to turn it the right way, how to hide it etc.
The teaching in here was pretty top notch. It was simply laid out into 2 columns per page which made it look a lot nicer to read and sort of inspires you to read it all. John is a great teacher and everything is in as much detail as you need.
All in all, I highly recommend this book to anybody hoping to start in bill magic. There is a TON of excellent material in here that I'm sure you will love as much as I did. It was a fun read and a really smooth read.

I LOVE this book! When I first saw it, I couldn't believe such a large book had been dedicated to "one" trick. After reading a glowing review shortly after it was published, I figured it was worth a look; since I had a bill switch in my show and figured it could only improve. Now this is one of my favorite magic books in my library! Nothing is left out of this book! History, routines and various means of performing the bill switch are all in this book - and more! This isn't just a magic book you can use as reference for handling and routines. This is an interesting read from cover to cover! Think you know the bill switch?! Think again! Whether you've been performing it for years or are thinking of performing it in any capacity - this book is for you!
Good resource Report this review

Good book albeit largely repetitive. A worthy study if you are new to bill switching, however, it is far from complete. There are dozens and dozens of bill switch presentations that aren't in the book, including my three favorites, but there are plenty of variations (including a bunch by Gregory Wilson) to keep you busy. Often an incredibly boring read, but a good resource none the less.
