As good as a magic book can be,
This review is from: Street Magic (Hardcover)
The main point to buying a magic book like this is to learn how to perform tricks - which is not an easy thing to do on a page - it takes a very clear understanding of the trick itself and an articulate use of language to get the process duplicated by the reader. And this book does just that extremely well. Supplimented by very clear photographs, the main point of the book is accomplished, which again, is to teach you how to perform some magic tricks!
Paul Zenon has also captued the spirit of the subject well here, giving a brief but interesting history to street magic, and generating an enthusiasm in the reader to actually get out there and perform.
I have read a couple of books on magic and have watched a number of DVDs, and I have no hesitation in recommending this book. It is well written, clearly presented and useful.
