Die Welt der modernen Münzmagie hat Geoffrey Latta den Status eines Innovators und Künstlers verliehen, der nach seinem Mentor David Roth der zweitgrößte ist. Sein Underground-Reputation begann in den 1970er Jahren und wurde in den 1980er Jahren verwirklicht, als eine Auswahl seines Frühwerks in Richard Kaufmans hervorragender Zusammenstellung CoinMagic vorgestellt wurde. Sein Ruf hat sich weiter entwickelt und ist Jahre nach seinem vorzeitigen Tod nicht erloschen.

The Long Goodbye präsentiert alle bekannten Münzmagien von Latta, veröffentlicht und unveröffentlicht. Es ist ein Beleg für brillante Innovationen, die Münzmagier-Liebhaber auf Jahre hinaus aufnehmen, beherrschen und nachahmen werden.

Latta's großes Werk wird auf diesen Seiten vorgestellt, wobei nicht nur auf die Schlitten, sondern auch auf die subtile Konstruktion, Psychologie und Choreographie geachtet wird, die das Markenzeichen seiner Magie waren; die breiten Striche und die feine. Es ist ein Buch, das niemand, der sich der Errungenschaften Latta's bewusst ist, zögern wird, neben den klassischen Texten über die Münzmagie zu stellen.

344 Seiten. Über 720 Fotos. 48 Tricks, darunter über 25 Griffe. 

He was that good. No, he was better--because no story, no book, no photograph, not even video, will ever truly capture what it was like to see those hands up close." -Jamy Ian Swiss

"I first met Geoff around 1982. At that time I considered myself quite accomplished with cards and coins. Well, after only a few short hours, I realized just how wrong I was. For the first time, I was seeing the very best! Geoff's techniques, his timing, his delivery -- perfect. He had an analytical way of thinking unlike anyone I had ever sat down with. If there was a faster way to get from point A to point B, Geoff figured it out. From then on, I spent much time with Geoff, and I can honestly say, from the first day I met him right up to the present, Geoff's talent was and is unequaled." -Mike Gallo

"So great was his prowess that one could stare right at the sleight-of-hand, and there was nothing to see, no hint of deception, because Geoff's execution was easy and natural perfection." -Eric Mead

"Geoff was a wonderful sleight-of-hand performer with coins and cards. He was creative and technically brilliant. His execution of the Retention of Vision Vanish, as well as the Diagonal Palm Shift and the Classic Pass were as good as I've ever seen. The construction of his routines is a testament to his ingenious way of thinking about magic. I only wish you could have seen him perform in person. He was an artist." -David Roth

Geoff made infrequent appearances, but when he did it was like having a visit from an Olympian. See, he was impressive, and dauntingly talented, but bless him, he was equally generous." -David Regal

"This is a book that has been a long time in coming. I have waited for 30 years to see it and it's finally here. This amazing book will go into your library next to Roth's Expert Coin Magic and J.B. Bobo's Modern Coin Magic, as one of the core resources for coin magic. Geoff Latta's work is finally emerging from the underground into the light." - Peter Samelson
