A thoughtful, engaging look into the secretive world of magicians ... it will excite anybody with a curiosity or love for magic.

David Blaine

A loving, behind-the-scenes map of the world of magic, by someone who knows and lives the art. Swift, funny, honest, and alive with enthusiasm.


There are myriad books that explain how to perform magic. But there are very few that explain how to watch magic. A smart take, and an excellent read.

Neil Patrick Harris

Joshua Jay is a superb, innovative conjurer with an unrelenting love of the art. This captivating book is proof of that passion.

David Copperfield
