An unusual effect that is introduced in the manuscript with a cartoon drawn by Chauncey Pierce. Dennis in his own words:
The Button Biting Trick is something I rarely see performed by other magician's, I have enjoyed and benefited form this routine for many years. It is a great way to let people know you are a magician. My original investigations of the routine led me to Malini and Scarne. I have developed my own method to make the effect more 'mentally acceptable' to the spectator. My grandfather was a tailor; buttons are not easily bitten off a coat. The trick rises and falls upon the spectator believing it is possible to bite off a button, so we must condition him to believe what we want him to believe.
1st edition 2004; 12 pages.
This 10 page manuscript contains instructional photographs and my description for producing the sound of the thread snapping as the button is ripped form the coat. The routine is a powerful lesson on how advanced preparation will enable you to perform a seemingly impromptu miracle.
