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.

12 year old nephew loves Dynamo, does lots of card tricks himself so thought he might enjoy this bio, thoug did worry it may be a bit old for him. However he has already finished it and loved it!!

Very good.Very interesting. Dynamo is down to earth, and quite funny. I am only half way through the book, but loving every minute of it.

I love Dynamo and the parts of the book about his home life and relationship with his grandad is what I enjoyed and wanted more of this personal side and his rise to fame but as this is not in chronological order it was difficult to get that picture. A lot of the book details his magic tricks which I've seen on his tv shows and so wasn't really interested in reading about them. I was hoping for more of what we don't see on tv.

In many ways tis is a typical celebrity autobiography: where I come from, how I made it, who helped me get there. There are some differences however., from the obviously sincere attachment to the North and his f.riends to a very personal view of the role of magic. Ultimately,though, Dynamo keeps the reader at arm's s length, revealing rather little of his private self. It is a pity as there are hints that the private person is at least as interesting as the performer.
