Which e-book are you referring to?

I'd be interested in purchasing this.

Is there a place to purchase a decent quality board?

The Cuckoo's Nest Magic Shop has some nice boards. They're plain wood which makes them quieter. These only take a penny or dime. These are the ones I discovered and wrote the book with.
They're only a few bucks a piece. I would buy 3 at a time and use the one that had the best action. Some like a stiffer board. Others like a looser board.

Midwest Magic sells a board that will take a quarter. It has beveled edges like an illusion to make it appear thinner. This has a lacquer or vanish finish on it which makes it harder to move. You have to work it in, but even then I find one hand moves somewhat difficult if not impossible to do effectively. I have two unfinished boards that D. ROBBINS used to sell. I contacted them and they no longer carry them.

Daytona Magic has one that is really, really, REALLY thick but will take a quarter. They are too thick for any kind of moves. I recommend staying clear of them.

You can try contacting David Haverstat. He bought the stock of coin boards from Danny Tsukalos who pitched boards in Macy's and sold David Copperfield his board. He's sell them on eBay from time to time. He may still have some left.

Other than that, it's a hunt. I happened to buy a board made by Mikame Kraft. I can't find it listed on any site that sold Mikame magic. But I also can't believe that he made only one and I now own it. Perhaps interest will be renewed and someone will start making first quality boards boards.

Happy hunting.

Something other than cards....of course, that's from my viewpoint. Probably looks really good to the audience from the other side.

Wow,  not seen one of these for over 40 years (and it was an old item then).
Never knew it had been a pitch item.

Good luck with the book EvilDan.
