BAMBOOZLERS book by Diamond Jim Tyler en route

Postby Diamond Jim Tyler » July 21st, 2008, 10:34 am

Dear Readers,

Today my books ship from China and will be on my doorstep by the end of August. The book is called BAMBOOZLERS and you can read more about it at www.diamond-jim.com/originals .

Richard Kaufman is such an inspiration to me. This is only my second book, and since I know how much work it takes, I am overwhelmed when I think of Kaufman's body of work. He consistently cranks out a superb monthly magazine and then somehow still finds the time to produce some of the best books on the market. He really is magic!! And thank you Richard for recommending Brad Aldridge as a graphic artist. He was extremely professional, easy to work with and worth every penny.

Thanks to Martin Gardner, another huge influence in my life, for writing the foreword and just for being my friend. When I think of all that Mr. Gardner has done my head wants to explode.

And lastly I'd like to thank all of my friends and colleagues who have encouraged me on this project along the way.

Why am I thanking all of these people in a public forum? Private thank-yous are fine, but I wanted the rest of you to know how much they all mean to me.
Magically,
Diamond Jim Tyler

I've seen the galleys of this amazing book and everyone is in for a treat when it arrives. The illustrations are gorgeous.

Seeing Jim work on this book and observing his dedication to producing something of such high quality has been a real inspiration to ME!

Best,
James

THEY'RE HERE! The books were delivered on my doorstep today. They look great. I'll begin shipping them on Monday, August 25th. Look for my full page ad in the September issue of GENII. For more about BAMBOOZLERS check out http://www.diamond-jim.com/originals

Dear Genii Readers,

I received my first, and hopefully only, "angry and frustrated" letter because of my ad in Genii. This gentlman's name, who I won't mention, griped at me for having only a website in which to order from. He went on to explain in his hand-written letter that only half of the people in the US have computers and that I must be an idiot.

I could only laugh while reading this note because if he really wanted my book couldn't he have enclosed a personal check, cashier's check or money order with his letter. My address is in the ad. I assumed by giving people a choice of ordering online or through the mail that I had covered all the bases.

Is it full moon season already??

He must not understand 'teh internets'.....or has a briliant sense of humor.

btw: I'm interested in the book, but I've already got your previous book. How much, if any, overlap is there between the two?

Jim,

Will you have copies of the new book at the TAOM? If so, I'll get my copy then.

Thanks!

Raj- There are 75 routines in Bamboozlers. I think only one trick is repeated from PFM.

Rick- I will have books with me of course. Hope to see at my midnight lecture on Saturday.
