"With this book, whole new generations of magicians will not only discover who originated so much of what they take for granted, but also will have the opportunity to study some of the most influential and important and wonderful presentations and routines in all of close-up magic."
- Eugene Burger

This landmark work has finally been fully and dramatically captured in multi-faceted, multi-mediated form by Jon Racherbaumer, and L & L Publishing is proud to offer a vital masterwork written the way magic books should be written. Not only are all of Don Alan's signature tricks explained in meticulous detail, but his unique format, important sub-text, psychology and presentation - the life-blood of what set Don Alan apart from the rest, is fully explained. These are the aspects which made his entertaining routines the prevailing paradigm of 20th Century Close-up Magic. You will get an inside look at what made Don Alan the most talked about and most copied close-up entertainer of all time. And you will learn the whys and hows of his synergistic routine-making and the all-important underlying themes: the Circle of Fun, the uses of environmental and personal spaces, picking players, timing, control, momentum, interrogation strategy, and much more . . .

I think is a wonderful book for many reasons. This an opportunity to learn many commercial close up effects from a great working professional. More than the tricks themselves there are Mr. Alan's thoughts on what constitutes Misdirection, and he draws comparisons to the Magicians of his day. This book offers insight into the world of Chicago Bar Magic as it was done in the 40's and 50's. Ours is an evolving Art. This book helps us to remember a great Close Up Magician and some of his contemporaries. It helps us to remember who came before us. I think it is a very worth while addition to one's Magic Library.
