There is far more to a trick than its mechanics and presentation. In this book, best-selling author Roberto Giobbi discusses the essential ingredients of artistic magic, the hallmark of all successful magicians.
Never before have these closely guarded secrets been identified, named or explained in such a detailed yet succinct manner, all in a single volume. The concepts are illustrated with a first-rate trick, technique or presentation from Roberto's working repertoire, written in a clear, engaging style.
Studying this book will change the way you view and practice magic.
