 Watch This One By J. B. Bobo


For over half a century, J. B. Bobo was one of America's foremost magicians - performing 300 to 450 shows a year. It was estimated that over his incredible career, he performed over 14,000 school shows!

In Bobo's first book, published in 1947, you'll find an outstanding collection of sleight of hand magic with everyday objects. Every effect is audience-tested, every paragraph set forth with clarity and patience. And with his legendary attention to detail, the writer doesn’t offer mere tricks and sleights, but detailed instructions for turning each piece of conjuring into ?rst-class entertainment.

Plus, in addition to Bobo's own pet effects and routines, you'll also find contributions from top names like Paul Fox, J. G. Thompson, Jr., J. Steward Smith, Paul Ebling, Wallace Lee, Harry McDaniel and Phil Huckabee. Take a peek at this Table of Contents!
