Look, this book is sheer genius,
This review is from: SSOTBME Revised - an essay on magic (Paperback)
I appreciate that most folk on this page are either
(a) a pre-existing fan of Ramsey Dukes
(b) have been directed to this book by a concerned friend or relative
and therefore need no extra-curricula encouragement to buy this book
if you the reader do not fall into these categories, then please consider buying this.
This book is quite extraordinary. It requires reading from start to finish, during that period, you, the reader will experience something peculiar. When you try and go back into the book to find out exactly where or when that happened, you will be unsuccessful. This book is the encapsulated version of the magic shop in the cul-de-sac that vanishes before your second visit. It describes something indescribable without ever articulating it. It presents you with a series of concise, philosophical essays that inculcate a powerful impression...in an entirely different sense modality from that utilised in the reading!
The book itself is a well crafted piece of magic.
Buy it, it's about ten pounds (about three pints and a bus fare)...and will get you further than that
Ho Ho Ho

About one pint and a bus fare now. Still worth it, even then!
