The quintessential beginners guide. This book comes with
three bean bags to get you started. It also covers basic
tricks such as the half shower, behind the back,
two-in-one-hand, four balls, and clubs. This book comes with
three bean bags and is very cleverly written. The beef
against this book, though, is that it addresses numbers
juggling (juggling five balls or more) in a rather
discouraging tone. Beyond four lies madness, it claims
The Complete Juggler, By Dave Finnegan.
Where it lacks in detail, it makes up in volume. _The Complete
Juggler_ is a veritable encyclopedia of tricks for balls,
clubs, boxes, devil sticks, diabolos, and spinning balls.

Beyond the Cascade, By George Gillson.
The complete guide to three ball juggling patterns. Even if
you have trouble understanding instructions like 'toes go in
first,' you can probably follow the instructions in this book
and learn Mills Mess, 2-in-1-hand tennis, or Burke's Barrage
(bend your knees and go for it).
