“I Don’t Do Tricks” E-Book

“I Don’t Do Tricks, A Professional Magician’s Guide on How to Create REAL MAGIC”

“All throughout my career, young people and their parents have come to me and asked for advice on how to become a magician. The time has finally arrived to put all that advice into this E-book. There are literally thousands of books on the subject of magic and magic tricks, there are not so many on the performance side of the issue. They do exist, but none of them are MY perspective!”

What is REAL Magic (RM)?

[from the E-book]
“At this point, I think it’s important to clarify what we mean by “Real” magic. As musicians ‘interpret’ music, so magicians ‘interpret’ magic based on many different factors, including but not limited to their personal beliefs. It is in this context that the rest of where we go with this will make sense. And in fact, it’s the major reason for this book in the first place! RM goes so much further than doing things that others think is impossible. RM is on the edge of impossibility. Becoming a true magician requires learning to think about what is and isn’t possible in new ways. It also means that we may need to alter our views in order to achieve the desired outcome, and at the same time WE will be altered as well.”
