Also, and my biggest complaint, is that many of the tricks use the assumption that I can palm coins, dollar bills, and other items with no effort. If I could palm items, I probably wouldn't be reading this book to learn tricks.
Fortunately Cheryl shares my wonder and enjoyment of this unique form of entertainment, and has now provided us with a unique manual which I hope bartenders the world over will use to reaquaint themselve with this artform.
I highly recommend this book to any bartenders, bartenders in training, or just folks who want to show their favorite bartender a trick or two.
Miss Charming tells a story about each trick in the book which in themselves are great, and then goes into explaining exactly how each trick is performed.
I spent a whole evening reading the book and trying out the tricks. Some of them are so easy it's scary to think that people actually fall for it, others take a little bit of practice, but fear not, Miss Charming will walk you through each step of the way!
On a flight to Tokyo recently, I had half the flight crew and everyone sitting around me enthralled for an hour as I did some of the tricks I had learned, talk about a way to make time go by quick and make a few new friends!
