    There are some fun things here but many are unreliable or simple wordplay hoaxes so it is not really what it presents itself to be.

    Purchased for my son He loves it and has managed to wow his family and friends with the various tricks and know how that it contains eg balancing some coins on the edge of a bottle on top of a 20 note whipping the note out from beneath the coins without knocking them from the edge of the bottle Card and match tricks Its kept him amused.

    Ich habe fast alle B cher von Richard Wiseman gelesen und genossen Allerdings bin ich von 101 Bets doch etwas entt uscht Ich hatte erwartet, dass die Unfairness der Wetten auf statistischen Zusammh ngen beruht und so verschiedene Schwierigkeiten unseres Verst ndnisses von Wahrscheinlichkeiten ausnutzen Tats chlich sind es eher Tricks der Art Bewegen Sie x ohne es zu ber hren oder Bringen sie x in Zustand y mittels z Operationen die auf recht bekannten physikalischen Zusammenh ngen beruhen.Die beschriebenen Tricks sind nett, aber so richtig beeindruckend fand ich blo eine Handvoll.Fazit Ein j ngeres Publikum mag von den Wetten angetan sein, f r physikalisch interessierte Erwachsene bietet das Buch aber zu wenig.

    The book is great some of the bets are ones many people know about already but most are new ones I ve never thought of What makes this book great it does give some insight into some of the bets on why they work the way they do so it gives you some background information on them.
