I recently started reading Eric's book with his partner Nolin, "The Secret Art of Magic." I've read about half of the it so far, the half Eric wrote on busking. It's a must have. It's a good read. It's got things I haven't seen elsewhere, including a technique for judging a pitch and the people walking by and a method to help draw an edge that Cellini taught Eric that has never been talked abotu elsewhere as far as I know. Eric also talks about my home pitch in CA.

Yep. It's a good read. I liked the first half of the book much better than the 2nd half but I highly recommend it for all magicians. Espeically those that perform outdoors at festivals, parks, street, or anywhre you're working for folks that didn't even know a magiican would be at the event.

It's out of print last time I checked with them, so if you find one, pick it up, it's a very good read, as previously mentioned!

Eric will be performing, lecturing and conducting a workshop at [url=http://seam2006.com/]SEAM 2006[/url] in Birmingham, Alabama, August 3-5. Street performing will be a definite part of his contribution to the convention!

Though officially out of print, I have a few copies available for retail from our website, and Eric still has some available at his lectures.

This is one of those two part books that will come back to serve you in different ways. Some will find the first part more applicable to their present needs. Then later, the second part will become more relevant, and vice-versa.

It's a multifunctional book.

An awesome book. It will help your magic and help you think.
