If you want to know about the `magic square', a classic of magic and mentalism, then you really can't go wrong with this Kindle book.
The basic effect is: a spectator is asked for a random number and you, the magician, quickly fill up a four-by-four matrix with seemingly-random numbers. None of these numbers is the spectator's selection, however, when you add the rows, columns, corner numbers, quadrants, etc they all total the spectator's choice. Sounds impressive? If you've ever seen it performed, then you'll know that it is!
The teaching style is clear and concise and the book is written in a friendly and humorous way. At 30 pages, there is no fat in this book, and everything taught is straight to the point.
The book is nicely-presented, although there are a couple of typos, but at a tiny fraction of the cost of some similar products, you really can't go wrong.
Overall, if you are interested in the magic square, this really is an excellent resource and it is highly recommended.
I will be looking out for his other Kindle books.

You draw a square containing sixteen smaller squares. Ask someone to give you a number between 20 and fifty. Whatever number they give, "31" for example, you start to enter numbers into the squares, less that 2 minutes have passed when you hand him the filled in boxes, yet
the four corner numbers add up to 31.
The four squares top left, top right, bottom left and bottom right all total 31, and so do the four centre squares. The four diagonal squares in both directions, total 31,so all the horizontal and vertical columns.
Finally you point out two centre numbers of the left column are adde to the two on the righ column yes, 31 again.

It impossible - yet with this system impossibly simple.

Pretty much does what it says - in a very short time you can quite easily create a magic square for somebody and they will be impressed! If they are not impressed get them to try and do it themselves - I particularly liked his advice to shrug it all off as just a natural born talent that you assume everyone can do :)

One of the simpler methods and stronger for that. But there are flaws, a possible large jump in the 16 numbers used, the possibility of duplicate numbers and negative numbers. Nevertheless, a good method and would produce startling results for the right amount of practice (always practice!)

I love memory tricks and magic and this slight volume describes this trick perfectly
I'm sure if I wanted I'd be able to perform it, but I'm not sure how easy it is to slip into an informal setting
Good fun none the less

This is a great trick and impresses people. I was even able to do this in front of the same person a couple of times and they were still baffled and spent an hour trying to do this themselves! Thanks for this.

Excellent, concise book that will make your audience wonder at the Universe and you. Enjoy being the centre of the stage. I would recommend this book to all naysayers and nonbelievers, in the science of magic.
