Tricks by David Ben

(c. 2003)

Cards. Wonder. Roses. Cell Phones. Sleight of Hand. Hot Coffee. Matchbooks. Miracles. Finger Rings. Wands. Credit Cards. Bottlecaps. Astonishment. Coins. Cigarette Papers. Bafflement. Laptop Computers. Postage Stamps. Sugar Packets. Secrets.

These are the things David Ben’s Tricks is made of.

Tricks contains material for all skill-levels, from technically demanding renditions of the “Cards to Pocket” and “Open Travelers” to self-working “Faux Automata” using cellular phones and laptop computers. In between, close up miracles, parlor tricks and stage effects abound. Standout effects include “Postage Prediction,” a no-nonsense mental effect with postage stamps; “Bad Habits,” an improved, logical version of the “Cigarette Through Quarter” plot; and “Matchless Psychometry,” an up-to-date version of Annemann’s classic “Pseudo-Psychometry.”

Ben has also revealed the inner-workings behind selections from his acclaimed theatrical productions The Conjuror and The Conjuror’s Suite. Tricks also includes the performance scripts for these effects – giving the reader a complete view of how a seasoned professional develops material for the real world.

Within these pages you will gain insight into a host of miracles that David Ben has made his living with for the last 20 years. Detailed are not only the rudiments of each effect, but also the select secrets only available to a working professional who has performed a trick hundreds, if not thousands, of times. Inside, you’ll find the tricks behind Tricks.
