At $1, it's not an outright scam, but I can't see myself using any of the "tricks" in this book to impress any of my friends. I think I was expecting some interesting close-up magic tricks that would be relatively easy to pull off using things you'd find at a bar, but those are largely absent from this book.
Here are some of the "highlights":
1) Ask your friend which city is further West: Reno or Los Angeles? (SPOILER ALERT: It's not Los Angeles). That is actually one of the 57 "tricks". This is what I'm paying for?
2) Carefully peel an orange, trying to keep the peel intact. Wrap the peel around an apple. Peel your new "orange" in front of your friends... yup - that's it. I'm not sure that's going to win a lot of free drinks at the bar!
3) Tell your friends that you have a pencil that can write any color. Ask them a color they want your pencil to write. Let's say they pick "red" - take a sheet of paper and write "R-E-D" on the paper. Ha! Free drinks all around, amirite?
As you can see - these "tricks" aren't exactly along the lines that I was expecting as a means of pulling clever tricks at a bar with friends. I don't think I'd be willing to even try these on my 5-year old nephew without fear of him groaning at his lame uncle.
The only reason I bumped this up to 2-stars is that at $0.99, I don't feel too terribly cheated by this book, but I definitely don't understand where all of these fantastic ratings came from!
