Phonetastic by Joe Hernandez - Book
52 Magic Tricks You Can Do Over Any Phone
Phonetastic is a collection of fifty-two magic tricks you can perform over any phone. With the cell phone as the number one means of instant communication, performing magic over the phone is an excellent avenue for magician, especially since it is so easy to entertain more than one person by turning on the speaker on the phone or performing virtually. In an instant, you can have an audience.
Imagine having a card secretly selected, placed back in the deck, then shuffled, and you reveal the chosen card. You can also have a pair of imaginary dice rolled and be able to tell the chosen number. There is even a gambling routine where the participant deals himself the winning hand without realizing it. Included is a revised bonus trick from the legendary John Scarne.
Included is the introduction to the JDH Principle, a new magic method that is being revealed for the first time. Keep this book handy whenever you need to call a friend, family member, business client, or sell yourself on getting hired for your next gig. You will quickly develop a reputation for being a genuinely great magician.
