The best magic book I've ever read!, 30 July 2005
As someone who used to be a professional magician in the 80's/90's, I bought this book recently for my nephew who has developed an interest in magic since watching Zenon and David Blaine on TV. I have to say I was blown away - in my opinion this is the best book available for anyone who wants to learn close-up magic for real; the photography is exceptional, with around 300 photos, and the instructions clear and easy to understand. There's even some 'tricks of the mind' in there that are used by Derren Brown and Uri Geller-style spoon-bending! I just wish it had been available when I was starting out, rather than having to contend with dull old-fashioned books with line-drawings! Unhesitatingly recommended for anyone who wants to become a professional standard trickster, or just impress their friends or family with mind-blowing magic. Well done Zenon!
