Start with Card Tricks and keep people guessing with the Tricks with Everyday Objects, such as the fantastic banana split trick and the coin under a handkerchief illusion. Move on to the head-scratching Puzzlers, like the rattling matchbox or the chicken, fox, and corn trick—these guessing games will leave your friends and family amazed and bewildered. Confuse your friends further with the knotty problems in the Betchas chapter, and the joke’s on them with the Stunts ’n’ Pranks, where they can be a part of the trick with the cable ties or the wooden spoon illusion.
