Hey! How'd You Do That? is a great collection of 15 parlor tricks ranging in difficulty with full explanations and video tutorials.
The tricks contained in this book can be done using ordinary household items by ordinary adults, but each one has a unique, magical quality that is anything but ordinary.
This book is hilarious! And…it teaches you really cool tricks that you would actually like to do. The guys who put this together are funny and straight forward about how to do things like cut a deck of cards with a single hand, shuffle poker chips and spin a pen around your fingers. These kinds of things are small but fun things to do and everyone should go through life knowing how to do at least three party tricks that will wow people.
I love the way the book is laid out: it's got a simple graphic style with clear images and informative text. Being able to watch them perform the tricks in the videos is also really helpful. Very cool book, a must have for those of us who always wanted to bounce a cork on a table and have it land upright every time!
