Product description

Review

...it covers a huge diversity of genres and magic tricks ranging from the party piece or bar bet to some which are extremely string indeed...this book will spark the interest of many a new magician and keep the art of magic well and truly alive..... --Ipswich Magic Society newsletter, October, 2010.....Mysterio s Encyclopedia of Magic is the book that the great Houdini never wrote - a comprehensive collection of magic, tricks and illusion. If you want to make coins or small children disappear, levitate members of the audience, make your finger vanish into thin air, put a rope through your neck, bend spoons, cut up your Grandmother s pearl necklace and return it intact, or perform hundreds of other dazzling and epic displays of magic this is the book for you! This beautifully designed book is the perfect gift for children, adults who want to display these skills at parties, poker cheats, parents and grandparents --New Classics, October, 2010.....definitely a book I would recommend to anyone starting out in magic; and indeed quite a few who have been in it for rather longer. I can guarantee that forking out £10.99 for this 340 page, excellently illustrated, soft back book, would pay far greater dividends than spending twice on that for the latest DVD. --Magic Week, September, 2010

At this price, 340 pages of comprehensive coverage of all kinds of magic is a sentsational bargain for a young novice magician and would make a useful resource for some others as well. --Bristol Society of Magic Newsletter, October, 2010---definitely a book I would recommend to anyone starting out in magic; and indeed quite a few who have been in it for rather longer. I can guarantee that forking out £10.99 for this 340 page, excellently illustrated, soft back book, would pay far greater dividends than spending twice on that for the latest DVD. --Magic Week, September, 2010---Mysterio's Encyclopedia of Magic is the how-to book that Houdini never left behind an amazing book that makes one wonder how it was ever allowed to be published...but when you see it, you'll be glad it was! This is the first complete encyclopedia of magic, tricks and illusion published in almost thirty years and features literally hundreds of tricks and acts. Step-by-step illustrations are accompanied by precise, professional advice and instruction, thus setting the standard for magic books for years to come! So if you want to perform hundreds of dazzling displays of magic this is the one and only book for you! While some of these magic and illusion tricks require apparatus the reader is given full instructions on both constructing and using these in front of an audience. Magic tricks are also examined in detail, so the reader gains a grounding in both the theory and practice of magic and illusion. A book that has to be seen to be believed! --Crickey! October, 2010....definitely a book I would recommend to anyone starting out in magic; and indeed quite a few who have been in it for rather longer. I can guarantee that forking out £10.99 for this 340 page, excellently illustrated, soft back book, would pay far greater dividends than spending twice on that for the latest DVD. --Magic Week, September, 2010

Features illustrated step by step instructions for rope tricks, money magic, mind-reading effects stage illusions, everyday magic, and plenty of all new card tricks. This title helps readers learn how to bend spoons, stretch handkercheifs, levitate glassware, make small children disappear, shuffle playing cards with aplomb, and more. Even tells you how to levitate someone - extraordinary. Great fun, children and adults alike will want to have a go at the card tricks. Really, really entertaining. RECOMMENDED FOR CHRISTMAS... --Books Monthly, October, 2010

definitely a book I would recommend to anyone starting out in magic; and indeed quite a few who --Magic Week, September, 2010
