Techniques and Original Presentations to make you....more Magical!
A lifetime of practical material:
effects, techniques, articles, and anecdotes, from a full-time professional entertainer's career, are explored in the book.
And in the publisher's words:
I think that this book, is going to become one of those books which sets a standard within the magic world for years to come. We were very proud and delighted when Walt approached us about this project, since we were very familiar with him through his other writings, performances and contributions to our own Devil Of A Bar And Pub. But, when we finally had a chance to read this book, we were even more pleased as it really is one of the most inspirational books about the ART of performing ART and making the stories come to life and help create the MAGIC for your audience and frankly, it made ME feel magical again!
So, before you listen to what I think of this book, you may wish to check out the first 20 pages, with table of contents and introductions, and get a feel for the treat you have in store. Download the free sample. All I can say, is I think you will be pleased.
In this 270 page book, you will learn new routines and original magic, you will be exposed to a dynamic writing style that makes you feel comfortable while CHALLENGING you to get more creative and go beyond simple story telling or basic magic. You will learn skills and tools for thinking and creating. In fact, if you DON'T think of new ideas as you are reading this book and find yourself reliving a bit of the giddiness you enjoyed as a kid when you visited a magic shop, unwrapped a new trick, or saw something that really amazed you- well then, you're just not living the magical life!
Pages: 270 - 7" x 10" soft cover pages.
This is what Jeff McBride had to say about this delightful book:
"Walt weaves many colorful stories into a magical carpet ride of adventure! This impressive book is rich in mythic images that will inspire you to think and feel deeply about our ancient art."
