"The 80's Called...They Want Their Magic Book Back" - Volume One , with an introduction by David Regal, is the first of a two-part series featuring 22 incredible effects and highly entertaining presentations from the slightly off-kilter mind of Jonathan Friedman. Filled with quirky, visual, and 'retro-istic' flair, Friedman's collection of magic is just as much fun to read for pure pleasure as it is to learn from. Every routine includes a full, audience-tested and approved script, a large number of easy-to-follow photographs, and enough raw mystery and entertainment value to really take your magic to another dimension.

Along with Jonathan Friedman's own special brand of magic, this book features wonderful guest contributions from a powerhouse crew of some of close up magic's most respected names, including John Guastaferro, Cameron Francis, Francis Menotti, Steve Mayhew, Joe Cole, and Shaun Dunn!

"The 80's Called...They Want Their Magic Book Back"-Volume One will have you cutting keys with fire and ink! You will be using pretzels to divine a selected card! You will be popping a piece of 'corn inside your bare hands! How about levitating a card case with no wires, magnets, or magic strings? Throwing guitar picks into the deck to find a card like a rock star? Freshly written ink that changes and morphs right before your eyes?

Yes, all of this and so much more is possible when you read "The 80's Called...They Want Their Magic Book Back"-Volume One!

At over 240 pages, with photographs overflowing, this beautiful soft-cover book is available for the "Back To The Eighties" low, low price of $24.95.

Incredible book. Report this review

I wasn't sure exactly what to think when a friend recommended this book. The title and cover didn't give much of an idea what was inside, but with accolades from David Regal, Jay Sankey and other creative juggernauts, I figured I'd check it out.

In short, I'm really, really glad I did. It's rare for a book to be full of ONLY really clever ideas like this, but what's more rare is for it to have clever, funny presentations included for each one. You can see through reading that Jonathan actively performs these effects and that each and every facet has been considered.

This book is truly a great value for a close-up performer.
