Ah, memories. I think this book presaged the " This one came with three bean bags and features illustrations of a hippy and his sentient mouse friend. The hippy is learning to juggle, while the mouse merely watches in bemusement. This book did help me; after innumerable tries I did finally learn to juggle, at least in a very basic way.

I've been juggling on and off for many years.. In several short, easy lessons, this book should have you juggling more or less , in under 15 minutes. It won't however tell you how to stop. If this book is out of print, or not available on Amazon, it really is worth hunting down elsewhere. Get it from the States if you have to. Comes complete with 3 juggling bean bags. Cute and funny with straightforward instructions and illustrations.
Apr 24, Christine Schoen rated it it was amazing. I can juggle now. Feb 09, Martin rated it really liked it. When I was about 12 or 13, this book set me on a path Feb 10, Ellen Winters rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites.
This is how I learned how to juggle. Dec 02, Josiah rated it it was ok. I think that I would give this book two and a half stars. One of the things about The Klutz Book of Juggling that stands out most saliently in my mind is the surprisingly spare technical Juggling advice in its pages.
All of the other beginning Juggling manuals that I've read put a definite emphasis on eventually teaching fairly advanced technique, presumably with the hope that the reader will be able to learn from the book for a long time after achieving the basic Three-Ball Cascade. John Cassi I think that I would give this book two and a half stars. John Cassidy, however, at the most teaches only a few simple Three-Club Tricks, as well as the Patterns for Four and Five Balls, before leaving further improvement in the hands of the reader.
The Klutz Book of Juggling , though, has proved over time to be the most widely successful Juggling book of them all. Its combination of clear, basic instruction and the ever-present wit of the author makes for a winning formula, one that is likely to amuse learning Jugglers even at those times when frustration would threaten to invade on one's progress.
Because of the fact that the book will entertain even when progress has stalled, a learning Juggler is likely to keep after the task of learning to Juggle, and that is the highest goal to which any teaching guide for young beginning Jugglers can aspire.
Jan 22, Kathleen Garber rated it liked it Shelves: childrens-nonfiction. This is actually the 30th Anniversary edition of Juggling for the Complete Klutz. It comes with three Juggling beanbag squares and a small book of information. You'll find some good information in this book, not only on how to do the moves but also some information on how your brain gets confused when you are learning juggling.
After you learn the basics, you'll find information on juggling with more than one person, juggling with other objects, circle juggling and a few other fun ideas. Since this is the 30th Anniversary the back two pages of the book is a little scrapbook with cover art from the first 5 editions of the book, some old photographs and letters and news clippings although you don't get to read them all.
There is at least one typo, "Road that last line again," but overall it's a cute and helpful book. Nov 30, George Deoso rated it really liked it. I have three weird dreams in my life: to be a waiter, a juggler, and a writer. When I saw this book in a bargain store, I remember my heart beating swiftly at the sight of it.
After I bought it, I was thinking, "I'm gonna be the world's greatest juggler! So I used my black socks and formed into a doughnut- like shape which made my juggling harder because it bounces to much. Learned a lot from the book overnight and I I have three weird dreams in my life: to be a waiter, a juggler, and a writer. Learned a lot from the book overnight and I was able to juggle those three bouncy socks after 5 hours.
I deeply recommend this book for starters. But don't have the nerve to expect yourself to be the greatest juggler in the world through this book. Shelves: in-my-permanent-collection. Quick reading and very informative for anyone wishing to learn juggling. I had the beanbags that come with this book for years, but never had the book 'til recently.
In addition to the requisite information on how to juggle with three objects, it goes into juggling four or five objects, including clubs, two-person juggling, and more. Plenty of tips and goofy drawings and a great sense of humor. Juggling is all about tons of practice I think even the most un-coordinated people could do it as d Quick reading and very informative for anyone wishing to learn juggling.
I think even the most un-coordinated people could do it as do the authors here , you just need practice, practice, practice. Mar 19, Jorn rated it really liked it. If you think you might want to learn to juggle, there is NO better book in the world. The pictures are clear and easy to follow, and the writing is helpful and funny. The accompanying juggling balls are perfectly sized and weighted, and easy to grab out of the air. Seriously, this is a damn good book.
If you read this and you actually want to enough to put the effort in, you'll have no problem learning to juggle. This was the book that first taught me how to juggle. I bought it at a school book fair when I was in junior high. It came in a package with three bean bags that I first started practicing with. Its a fun book. Not the most technical and was easy enough for me to understand back then.
It has a few illustrations to help. It will teach you a few things but doesn't go into to many advanced patterns. Just enough to start you off on your juggling hobby. A good beginner book thats a lot of fun.
