Great Book Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 15th, 2009
This is the best magic book out there (except maybe the other books in the series). I was and still am overwhelmed by the amount of fabulous material in this book and in the whole series.

I also strongly recommend the other books in the series but I would start out with this one.

Every Magician should have this Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
This book has some of the strongest effects that I perform.
Things in here like "Interlaced Space" where three selected cards completely vanish between the four kings, are amazing.

I am at awe every time I sit down and read this. Who could have possibly come up with this stuff? Paul Harris, that's who.
The only downside is that the book is huge. Meaning that the length and the width are pretty big. But besides that, I highly recommend this book.

My introduction to Paul Harris Astonishment Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
I was at a magic store, this one guy did this trick with 3 cards the ending just blew me away I asked him show me or tell me how do I get my hands on this, he told me the name I will not forget Paul Harris: Arts Of Astonishment. I went to California for vacation and went to a Hollywood Magic Store looked for it and I saw a big book now I hate reading, everyone at the magic store recommended it. I bought it, no regrets. I recommend this just like they did. PHOOTE NOTE-It's definitely not your regular magic.

Must have Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 5th, 2010
This is a must-have for any street performer. This series of books is loaded with professional routines. You can easily adapt many of the moves you learn in this book to your own routine. This is a book that will help magicians become good magicians and good magicians become great magicians.

Love this series Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 6th, 2010
This is one of my favorite sets of books. You will learn a lot of magic and technique in these books. you will also learn a lot of psychology and presentations. There are so many close up tricks in this book you will wonder where to start. This is a book you will refer back to time and time again. Add to cart and prepare to get busy.

Best books on the Market Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 11th, 2003
If you are anywhere from a beginner to a professional magician, these books have it all. They give you plenty of great routines that are easy to understand, as well as extremely powerful. Many of the routines have full scripted patter that give you an idea of how to perform the tricks like Paul himself. I highly recommend all three books, but if you are just in the market for one, book three was my personal favorite. These are the best investment in magic that I have ever made!

Art of Astonishment book 1 Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 27th, 2003
This is my second favorite book in the series. It's probably as good as the 3rd. This book has awesome effects such as...

Bizarre Twist/Vanish: A face down card is placed between two other cards then visibly changes face up. Then the card vanishes while the spectator is holding onto it!

Illusion: Paul's version of 3 card monte which results in the money card appearing face up in the middle of the deck.

Reset: Four aces visibly turn into four Jacks, then just as quick change back.

Creation: You tear a moth shape out of a napkin, roll it up, then tear it open, only to have a REAL moth fly out.

This is just 4 of many great effects featured in this book. Highly recomended

Get All 3!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
What can be said about Paul Harris's Art of Astonishment set? Imagine a set of books that cater to most every magician's needs!! These books contain amazing effects, and within them, you will find a number of effects for most any setting. The three volumes are comprised of the best of Paul's books, as well as new material. So many people rushed to get the True Astinishments dvd set when it came out, but how many have not checked out where it began?
For me, this was an incredible investment. I got superb card material - re-set, las vegas leaper, bizarre twist, galaxy; some brilliant mentalism routines - deep thought, angel case as well as some excellent pieces of astonishment - shape of astonishment, counterfeit spectator, fizz master, twilight. Talk about bang for your buck!!
I don't think I could give this set any higher of a recommendation.
