RUBINSTEIN COIN MAGIC is FINALLY here!

Dr. Michael Rubinstein has finally taken a lifetime of coin magic and put it inside his new book, RUBINSTEIN COIN MAGIC. Packed within these 500 pages you will find twenty chapters with over fifty original techniques, over ninety complete routines and signature presentations, all illustrated with 930 crisp photos. There is even a BONUS section with over 400 puns and one liners for any occasion! You will not only learn the magic he has been performing and teaching over the past fifty years, but the new ideas, plots, and techniques that he has held back for years!

But that's not all! There are additional contributions from some of the world's finest coin magicians, showcasing many of the new techniques employed in modern coin magic today. RUBINSTEIN COIN MAGIC is destined to become a classic, and the book against which all future books on coin magic will be measured.

Here's what the experts have to say...

"Michael Rubinstein has created a major contribution to the cannon of coin magic. If you love coin magic, you are going to find inspiration, and a lot of terrific ideas, all presented in a beautiful package."

"It is very difficult to fool magicians using sleight of hand. Michael has been fooling me with his coin magic for more than 40 years. Now I get to learn how he did it. This a monumental work in the field of coin magic and I highly recommend you get it and study what he has to offer."
- Meir Yedid

"Inside this beautifully produced book you will learn the nitty-gritty details to pure sleight-of-hand coin magic. A lifetime of work is concentrated in this overwhelming tome."
- Steve Cohen, Chamber Magic

"The big, important magic book has returned at last, and it's about Coins! Michael Rubinstein and a small army of conspirators have created a frightening amount of solid commercial magic and crushed it between two covers for your delight, discovery and eventual deployment. Classics are revised, card effects transformed, and strange new things brought to life. Do not miss this."

- Mickey Silver

"Buy this book! It is clearly written, easy to understand and the photographs document all the details you need to learn this wonderful material. The result is encyclopedic, but understand that the techniques and routines are polished over time through performance. It's impossible to cover the scope of the book.

Michael Rubinstein's Rubinstein Coin Magic."

The New Standard Of Coin Magic Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 14th, 2020
I am going to start out with stating the fact that "Modern Coin Magic / The New Modern Coin Magic" by J.J. Bobo have recently been "called out" or "de-throned" as the "Bible" of coin magic. This has come up more often in the last year or two by many (Most notably Curtis Kam on his Reel Magic Series and Rick Holcombe on his YouTube channel). This is not to say that Bobo's Book does not contain very powerful effects and sleights, just that there are now some better out there and it contains outdated material.

It does not leave a lot out there as far as "large" coin magic books like "Expert Coin Magic" and "Coin Magic" by Richard Kaufman. There are some very good / great underground to notable smaller books also and recently we got a decent sized book about the coin magic of Geoff Latta that has been well received.

Now enter Dr. Michael Rubinstein's enormous tome - "Rubinstein Coin Magic". I was one of the lucky few to have pre-ordered directly from Michael before it was even in his hands from the printers and even luckier to get mine he Friday of Memorial Day Weekend (before he was asked, or told, not to ship any more until the official release date) so I have been able to read it in it's entirety and re-read parts of special interest to me.

I will say, along with many of the more seasoned and well read contributors, who had early paper edit copies, that this book is certainly a contender for the title. It will most likely be the new "must have" for anyone serious about coin magic. The book is huge, well written, easy to understand as well as follow along and the photos are incredibly well taken from the proper angles. The work that went into producing this book must have been mind numbing (which is ok because we will enter the "Twilight Zone" as well as alternate realities of it. That means a few different methods for those not familiar with his famed effect he performed on "Penn and Teller's Fool Us". One of the versions is brand new and never seen print before (hint, it is one of my favorites in the book).

Along with routines, he teaches many of his sleights from the years of working with them and I was pleasently surprised that the first to be taught is "R.O.P.S." and I have not quite been doing it right for a long time. I am working on fixing that with a good bit of success using his stp by step teaching in the book rather than following my old dvd too quickly and missing some important elements of the move.

If you have ever seen him perform, you will surely know that he doesn't let a good (or bad) pun go to waste. It is his character. Not the one he plays, it is too genuine to not be a real endearing part of him. Luckily, He has devoted a chapter to his favorite puns which you can read to use, read to enjoy or skip it entirely (without any of it accidentally "shtick-ing" to you).

If you are serious about wanting to do great coin magic based on his works and the many other great coin magicians who added contributions, this really is a "must have". It covers a lifetime of work from one of the first coin guys to put out a VHS series back in the day and being a force behind the scenes of the 16 vol "New York Coin Magic Seminar" DVD series.

I will leave you with this... Buy the book, it is already almost sold out and awaiting a second printing. For more in-depth reviews, check the Magic Cafe and similar forums as I am sure they will be popping up as others make their way thru the book. Give them time, it is a big one, but you will not go wrong getting this book.

I haven't finished the book in its entirety yet but I can boldly say that this is theeeee Book fort any magician who fits in any of these categories. The All-around magician (performs all magic gen), the beginner, and even advanced coin magicians, and the close-up magicians.

The way each sleight and routines are explained is very well done. Offering not only the main methodology, but also variations, and other important information to really ground in the information.

Each chapter offers a very insightful quote from the author that is well to take into consideration.

I love Bobo's a good start with a lot of really good info, but this book is most definitely for those who really want to take their coin and closeup work to the next level.

Why do I keep bringing up closeup work? If you haven't figured it out yet, a lot of coin sleights can be modded to be used with almost any small object. If you buy any book this year, make sure it is this one.

Also, It must be noted. The material in this book is not for self workers and casual hobbyists. This book requires time and dedication to the material. It will take more time to get some of the sleights down if you are not decently well versed in coin sleights.
