Expect the same classy pocket-sized book with a reddish brown faux leather-binding, silver gilt edges, a red ribbon marker, etc. There are 75 more effects full of one-liners, with 136 pages and over 100 illustrations. Some are classics and some are seeing print for the first time. The foreword of the book was written by magic funny man Tom Mullica. Those who have seen it say that it is even better than the first volume!

About the Author:

Since the release of Bamboozlers Volume One in 2008 Diamond Jim Tyler has been a busy man. He completed a lecture tour across the United Kingdom visiting fifteen cities throughout England, Scotland and Wales. Diamond Jim is an avid Sherlockian who was enthralled to visit many of the interesting places he had only read about in the Conan Doyle stories. He capped off this tour by performing and lecturing at the prestigious Magic Circle in London. Upon his return from the UK he performed again at the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood and lectured there for the first time. While in Hollywood he was hired as a consultant for the major motion picture MIRRORS. Visit his website or search the internet and you will find the promotional piece called Mythology of Mirrors that features Diamond Jim, the director Alex Aja and actor Kiefer Sutherland. Diamond Jim also made his debut at the Improv comedy club this year. He performed another lecture tour across the western part of the United States. And he returned to Europe in 2009 for a forty day lecture tour across Portugal, Spain, France, Belgium, Switzerland and Italy where he performed in twenty-one cities. His magic is now being featured in various magic magazines abroad. Somehow, in between traveling and performing he found the time to write this sequel.

Review:

In 2008, Texas magician Diamond Jim Tyler released a pocket-sized compendium of bar bets, stunts, and magic tricks. That collection was called Bamboozlers. The contents were impressive enough for none other than Martin Gardner to write the introduction to the book. Now Diamond Jim is back with the second installment in a proposed series of these diminutive digests of deceptions. In Bamboozlers Volume Two, 75 feats, tricks, and practical jokes are described in a playful, easy-to-digest manner. This time around, Tom Mullica has written the introduction. The same charming illustrations and design that tied together the prequel were used for this little book, too. Personal favorites in the collection include a fantastic credit card swiping gag, the old floor nickel gag (in which a coin is apparently nailed to your forehead and removed), and a number of the one-liners that you'll either love or hate. I'm in the former camp. The tricks that do go into your repertoire of off-the-cuffers will serve you well and might win you a few drinks, too. Bound in a brown faux leather with silver stamping, with silver-edged pages and a ribbon bookmark, the production values on this little gem are high. Diamond Jim Tyler is to be commended for compiling this cogent, concise collection of cunning conceits fit for any conman or conjurer. Congrats! -Gabe Fajuri --MAGIC Magazine Review (April 2010)
