From Me This is High Praise Report this review

I have had the opportunity to speak with Master Gazzo on a few subjects covered in the book. I was happy to see him release it in it's entirety, because it is without question the finest street performer's handbook available.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
I've been performing street magic for over a decade, I have only recently released any of my work, and this book brought ME new insight. After implimenting only a few of the suggestions, I doubled my bookings per month.
If you want to be a mystic, you don't want to be a street performer. If you want to be Gazzo, you have a shot. If you read this book, you have a foot in the door. If you listen and obey it, you have a career.

Slightly disappointing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 7th, 2016
The length of the book is very short For the price that's charged. The quality is very good and the information is excellent but can also be found from Gazzo Live online on Penguin. There's much more information on the live online Session than what is in the book. It's a good resource to have but for the price I think I would have just stuck with the online information. If I had it to do again I would have not ordered the book and gone with the online Session Download.

I've had better reading on closeup and stage magic . But for the street i guess you have to do it yourself or maybe dig deeper . I'll give it a good home and maybe dig deeper for more of his stuff 🔺
Great book Report this review

I highly recommend this book not just to street magicians but to any who wants to improve their performances . Gazzo covers it from a to z
Good as a supplement Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 20th, 2014
I guess I was expecting more; the book is kinda thin. It is a good supplement to other materials; I'd recommend the dvd and book combo that Gazzo has, as well as Kozmo's busking dvd. I recommend the book because you can never have too much knowledge and insight for anything, plus it's always wise to learn from the experienced...it'll save you time, money, and heartache.
Great little book Report this review

This is the kind of investment you want to do because this is the kind of secrets that get's you money. It's on the same principle that David Stone's conferences on table hopping: you'll get plenty of practical informations on how to perform your magic in a particular way to be as efficient as you can be in a given situation.
Simple and Informative Report this review

If you're looking for a little reference booklet to keep in your case, this is it. For a thicker text that thoroughly breaks every aspect of the craft down, you'll want "To Lure With Spectacle" by Jimmy Talksalot.
good information Report this review

I like the book.
It covers a lot on the subject of busking on which there are not so many books :)
Not all info is new if you have performed on the streets already but I got some nice things out of it.
So it is all about busking and NOT steet magic like David Blaine.
I would recommend!

For a street performer, this is just PURE GOLD!
If you are just starting out in busking (like me) , buy this book, if you are an experienced busker, buy this book, I am sure you will find something useful in here.
Get this book whatever you do, if you can perform on the streets, you can perform anywhere!:-)
Luckily, I got this book free, but I would have bought it later.
