Book Description

'I immersed myself in magic. I read every book I could get my hands on and practised and practised, day after day and night after night. Magic became my world...some might say an obsession.'



When you’re a kid life can seem tough; tougher for some than others. But the darkest of times can also be the most enlightening.



When his late granddad showed him magic for the first time, Steven Frayne knew there was more to life than hiding from bullies. He had a destiny. A calling. In that moment Dynamo was born: the most exciting magician of the 21st century.



Since then, Dynamo has shocked, thrilled and amazed men, women and children, from all walks of life, all over the world. With his mind-blowing illusions, he has catalysed a whole new era of magic.



Now, in his very first book, Dynamo invites you to join him on a breathtaking journey across the globe. Be prepared to levitate Lindsay Lohan in Singapore, transform snow into diamonds in the Austrian mountains, and walk on water across the River Thames. Along the way, he reveals how to make the impossible possible, what it takes to pull off the greatest stunts man has seen, and why everyone needs magic in their lives.



This is no illusion. This is Dynamo revealed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dynamo – Nothing is Impossible | Review 19 May 2014
Format:Paperback
Nothing is Impossible is the autobiography of a Bradford lad called Stephen Frayne, a guy who was badly bullied as a kid and who managed to turn it in to something positive. You might have heard of him – he captured the world’s attention as Dynamo, the ‘Magician Impossible‘ who gained notoriety for a variety of high-profile stunts including his stint walking on the waters of the Thames.

Now, I don’t know how much help Dynamo had when writing this, but I’ll admit that the whole thing is very well written with no obvious mistakes and extraordinary insight in to the magician’s mind. Whilst he doesn’t reveal the secrets behind his magic, that’s not what you want to hear anyway – if you knew how he did his tricks, it would ruin them!

However, you do learn why he does the magic that he does, and it’s fascinating to see how his troubled childhood in Bradford helped to shape the man that he became. He also covers his early career, and it’s particularly interesting to see how the Prince’s Trust helped him to get to where he is today.

My copy holds a little extra significance – it’s signed by the man himself, as part of an offer that he posted through his Facebook page where you could get your copy signed if you pre-ordered it before the book’s launch. I would’ve pre-ordered it anyway – he’s a fascinating man, and you should leap at the chance to find out a bit more about what makes him tick.

Celebrity autobiographies are usually vacuous and faintly depressing, and they reek of ghost-writing and a lack of talent – here, Dynamo rewards the Dynamites, his dedicated followers, with something a little different. A little special. A little magical.

5.0 out of 5 stars A troubled soul.... 22 Nov. 2013
Format:Paperback
Dynamo is one of Britain's greatest entertainers and therefore it was with immense pleasure that I heard a few months ago that he was publishing his autobiography in view of the rich and impressive career he has had so far (and hopefully this will continue for many years to come!). And Dynamo the man emerges from this book very much like his tv persona portrayals: honest, truthful and moreover, wonderfully human.

The course of his life, from his childhood to the present, is pretty comprehensive and we get a nice balance of his experiences from both his personal and professional life, along with numerous interesting and amusing anecdotes. For those following the history of British theatre, this is a treasure trove of information regarding his time with the Marlowe Society at Cambridge, the Birmingham Rep, the National Theatre, the Old Vic/Prospect Theatre Company and of course, his highly successful tenure at the Royal Shakespeare Company in the early 1980s and after. Sadly, all this isn't indexed and one has to navigate via the chapter titles which of course is more than possible but not so convenient.

As mentioned by other reviewers though, a lack of proofreading and factual errors sometimes mar one's enjoyment of this otherwise very lovely book. As this is a collaborative effort between Dynamo and Derren Brown (or to be more precise, the inside cover states that this is an 'as told to' book...it would have perhaps been better to explicitly state this on the front cover, or even in HarperCollins' press release/book description), it is rather difficult to know who (along with the proofreaders) is responsible for this.
