If you're a "Hit & Run" magician that is set in his ways, pass this by. If you are looking to go out and rake in some cash (and show up that guy two blocks down playing guitar), this is the book you need. It covers the attitude of working the streets, routining, crowd control, and PASSING THE HAT. If you want something out of this book, you will need to re-read it a few times. Possibly even take some notes on. If you put the time into it, following the instructions in the book, you can earn the money back within a weekend. Just make sure you check with your city about laws on Busking, I don't want to see "street magician arrested/fined" in the newspaper or on the news.

This is a great book on presentation and presence. Like Ortiz's Strong Magic, it is experienced based and written so we can understand what a sucessful street performer/busker does in a given day. There are many tips and performance secrets that I'm going to start using right away! Thanks Gazzo!!!!

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.

I've studied close-up magic for over twenty five years, and
this is far and away one of the best manuscripts on the subject I've ever read! BAR NONE! Its breadth! Its focus!
Its detail! No wasted energies here. This is the first manuscript I've ever read to address some peoples fear of magic (spectators that is). GET THIS!!GET THIS!!GET THIS!!
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.
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.

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!

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.
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.
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.
