by Chris Dore
Illustrated, 75 pages.
Published by Circustuff, United Kingdom
Check out my review of the book Mastering Devilstick - part one by Chris Dore. I have modified it slightly from when I posted it to rec.juggling. You can also take a look at the Circustuff web page where they sell the book.
The Devilstick Manual
by Paul Bohanna
This was mentioned (years ago) on the Freaks Unlimited web page. I was planning on ordering it as soon as it was out, but it was never released (as far as I know). Both the link to the book and Freak's Unlimited web pages are no longer working. If anyone knows anything about this book then drop me an email.

This book contains a 37 page section on the devilstick. The section was written by Todd Strong and is a brief snapshot of his Devilstick Book.

Japanese book on Devilsticking
Published by the Juggling Shop Naranja
As far as I know this is the first Japanese book on devilsticking. The publisher sent me a complementary copy since the author has many of the tricks from my web pages in the book. The illustrations look like computer generated images of people doing the different moves. Most of the tricks I was familiar with and could understand by just looking at the pictures. They catagorize the tricks by type and reference base tricks to learn when learning more complex tricks.
Take a look at their juggling store web page. You may be able to purchase it from them, or you can try to order it from Amazon.com with the ISBN number.
