Comments (Lybrary.com): "Includes extensive annotations and a new introduction by pro-magician and historian Ben Robinson...Not since Twelve Have Died has Ben Robinson been so explicit on the major work of bullet catching. If you want to know how Annemann did it, which you can see below, then this ebook is your sure answer. Since Twelve Have Died has been out of print since 1990, this is your best bet at this carefully guarded information."
