Even though I had read about the small size of this "book", I was still disappointed with it's thin
size when it arrived. There are some funny lines in it, but many corny ones, and/or old lines that I
used to read in joke books when I was a kid. I would definitely refer to this as more of a pamphlet
than a book. It is thin, staple-bound, and the paper quality is poor. A few dollars less and this
would be a good deal. Let's put it this way, Bobo's Modern Coin Magic is considered the Bible of
coin technique, has priceless information, is 30 times thicker, has an actual glossy cover and is
perfect-bound as opposed to stapled...and it costs less.
I know it sounds like I hate this
"book", but I don't. There are some funny lines, from what I hear, Aldo is a very funny man. I just
wish the quality was better or the price was cheaper.

Many new magicians underestimate the value of the volumes of information that lies in the old dusty
books on the shelves of the magic shops. Most of the ideas within DVDs and instructional videos
containing those new flashy tricks come from the tried-and-true methods of famous magicians. This is
a book that will provide many ideas that a magician can transform into a modern miracle.
If you like the style of Colombini and want to glean a few really good lines this is for you. If you
use comedy in your magic this is a must have. Add to your cart you can not go wrong with this book
of one liner's.
Good! I think some gags can be used in magic, but many of them were just for other comedy routines.
I got this book today and as I came home from school I saw a package from PenguinMagic on the
dinnertable and in it was stuff I've ordered including this book, but I wouldn't say it's a book,
booklet is a better word. It's not that small as I thought, almost the same size as the penguin
catalouge or/and 125 Magic Tricks performed with a regular deck of cards, something in that size.
But most of the one-liners in this is mostly dedicated for speakers. There are some
oneliners for magicians, I haven't used any one-liners yet because I got it today as I write this
review. This isn't a complete waste of money, but you get value for your money. :-)
