I just returned from Magi-fest where this book sold out in a matter of minutes. I was able to get a
copy, in addition to seeing Juan's show and attending his worksop. No one, and I mean no one, thinks
about magic in the same way as the Maestro. This book is much different from the older work by this
The book is filled with tricks, but more important, reasons for the tricks, philosophy of
the magic, and the thinking that has mad Mr. Tamariz a wold sensation. This book is filled with
real magic. In my collection, I have over 300 hard-bound books including all of the other work by
Juan. This is his best (imho) and the performer, collector, lover of magic (the true meaning of
amateur) will all be thrilled.
There are some books that are to be read once, some that are to
be studied, and a few that are to be devoured slowly like a fine meal. This may be the finest meal
you could ever get. Join the 150 people from Magi-Fest who couldn't get their wallets out fast
enough. This is a meal that you can enjoy over and over.
The book is too good for this review
to do it justice. It joins THE BOOKS OF WONDER, JOHNNY THOMSON'S BOOKS, and GREATER MAGIC as works
that have a rare quality and lessons that transcend magic. Just buy it!
