Cups and balls is actually one of the first things to think of when you start with magic. But I advise to first get into magic, learn a few sleights and then come back here.

Oh, you're back? Great. If you want to learn cups and balls, buy this. Don't forget, you'll need cups and balls too, but this book describes what you should choose, so you would better read that first.
In this book you learn the basic sleights of the cups and balls. The pictures make it very easy to learn them.
After that, you go into the routines: The Basic Routine and Dai Vernon's Impromptu Cups and Balls Routine. After that, there are also some additional sequences.

At the end, it's time to try and... It works!

If you want to have this, buy this. That's all I can say.

I have blown off learning and practicing Cups and Balls for many many years. It has never appealed to me. It is just not fit into my style. This book changed my attitude. I was really surprised such a great instructional book came at such a low price.
