Alas, I was in the Tokyo Disneyland Magic Shop less than an hour ago and could have purchased it for you!

Tenyo sells it all over Japan.

There is a seller on eBay named Hitomi who goes under the name "Magico-Japan" and she will buy it for you.

Richard - Do you know why this book hasn't been translated into English?

Is there a TOC?

from Wikipedia:
In 1969, Jennings traveled with Dai Vernon on his lecture tour of Japan. Here he met Hideo Kato, who acted as their interpreter.

In 1970, a second set of notes were published for a special lecture Jennings gave at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, written by his. Larrys one-man issue of Genii was also published in May 1970. The effects were written by Jules Lenier.

In this same year, Hideo Kato came to America and studied card magic with Larry. He wrote a book on Larrys card technique, entitled Larry Jennings-No Card Magic Nyuumon. Written in Japanese, the book has yet to be translated into English.

My book, Mr. Jennings Takes it Easy, began as an English-language version of the Japanese book. But it quickly became clear that approach wasn't the best one to take, and I went in an entirely different direction that, frankly, is much better.

Thanks camron. For some reason I missed that section of the site.

Even more anticipation for 'Takes It Easy'!
