From The Book's Foreword:
" ... With just the right mix of simple but effective magic, a disarming manner, and self-targeted humorous patter, Mark can make any audience eat out of his hand. From redneck to royalty, on a street corner, in a restaurant or on stage (yes, he does card tricks on stage), people stop to watch him put reality on hold for fun and fantasy for a little while.
A good portion of Mark's success as a performer can be attributes to his experience as a pitchman. Like the street magician, the pitchman has to be quick-witted and resourceful and, above all, have the ability to make people stick around until the very end and, hopefully, spend some money.
This is where Mark shines. His Svengali pitch, developed over years of working in the trenches, is amazingly effective at maintaining interest and getting oohs and aahs - and even a few dollars. ...
In these pages you will find Mark's complete routine, exactly as he uses it, and as he taught it to magicians around the world. Study it well, inject your own style and personality into it, use it for magic or pitching, but above all use it."
