Brendan Brolly's Book of Diabolo

Brolly, Brendan

(c) Pub.: Infinite Illusions 60pp. $ Binding: P

Written as a book for people new to diabolo, this book starts at the basics of getting the diabolo going and keeping it going. It then goes on to cover most of the common tricks for one diabolo and has a brief section on two. It seems to be pretty good to learn from if you're a beginner. -Brendan Brolly

Contact Juggling

Ernest, James (Miller, John)

(c) 1990 Pub.: Ernest Graphics Press 94pp. $ Binding: P

The only book on the subject. Contact juggling is when you manipulate one or more balls so they seem to flow over your body. There were a few problems with the release of this book as Michael Moschen, who came up with many of the moves, felt that people were copying his ideas without thinking about it. There's loads of stuff on this so I won't go into it. The book is very clear and easy to understand and I'd recommend it.

The Complete Juggler

Finnigan, Dave

(c) 1992 Pub.: Jugglebug 574pp. $14.95 Binding: P

Just about everything related to juggling is discussed. This book is good for teaching beginners and intermediate jugglers. Seasoned jugglers will find this book to be an excellent resource, but may be frustrated by the brevity with which Finnigan treats the advanced tricks. There is an additional section on making money through juggling.

Crazy Cradles and Baffling Body Moves

56pp. $ Binding: P

The book deals with two main types of tricks and sees how far they will go. The string, cat's cradle, knots, and body throws are discussed. There is also an additional section with a few more grinds and suicides.
-Andrew Barden

Diabolo Handstick Grinds and Suicides

Grant, Donald

60pp. $ Binding: P

This book takes two tricks; a grind in which the diabolo is caught on the handstick, and a suicide which is letting go of one or both of the handsticks, and takes them as far as they will go. The diagrams and descriptions are clear though the jokes are a bit poor.
-Andrew Barden

Two Hot to Handle

Grant, Donald

96pp. $ Binding: P

This book is all about two or more diabolos. It starts from the beginning and takes you up to the tricks that the best diaboloists in the UK are just getting. It's clearly explained and actually makes sense a lot of the time. I like it anyway.

Club Swinging for Physical Exercise & Recreation

Schatz, W.J.

(c) 1990 Pub.: Brian Dube pp. $ Binding: P

This book is fairly old. It dates back to the time when club swinging was just considered an excercise. It is one of the most incomprehensible books I have come across. I do know of one person who has learned to club swing from it, but most people just use it as a reference.

The Diabolo Book

Strong, Todd

(c) Pub.: (awaiting publication)

I've only seen a German copy of this but it should be out soon (that's what they've been saying for the past 3 years now though). It starts at the basics and takes you through quite a few tricks. It then goes onto games and partner work. There is also a nice section on the history of the diabolo.

Club Passing - A Juggler's Guide to Social Interactio

Brolly, Brendan; Popper, Jonny; & Schofield, Simon

The only book on club passing as yet. This starts at the basics and teaches mainly tricks but also some simple two-hand patterns and patterns for 7 and 8 clubs. I'm slightly biased, but I think it's clear and easy to understand.
-Andrew Barden

Club Swinging and Pole Manipulation

Jillings, Anna

This isn't due out for a few months yet, but I've seen the drafts. It covers basic moves in both club swinging and pole manipulation and goes up to some fairly complicated stuff. It looks fairly easy to understand although I haven't sat down and worked through it.
