SECRETS IS HERE!

https://www.vanishingincmagic.com/magic/card-magic/secrets/

This book is incredible! From the quality of the tricks to the actual quality of the book itself.

Anthony Owen is known as one of the most influential creators in the field of mentalism, and many of his original plots and effects are featured in the repertoires of the most famous and respected performers in the field. Mr. Owen is also acknowledged as an expert in the realm of television magic, having produced some of the most memorable content for Derren Brown, John Archer, Pete Firman, and dozens of others. Now, for the first time, Anthony has authored a hardbound collection—the definitive collected works—of his lifetime in magic.

Anthony has created magic and mentalism with business cards, playing cards, borrowed objects, and more. The focus in Secrets is on parlor material, which should be a refreshing surprise for those of us who are constantly in search of good material for large groups. Anthony’s material is almost always interactive, and focused on premise rather than technique. There’s always a fascinating wrinkle to Anthony’s presentations. You’ll learn a routine based around a game show, a diabolical card trick you can watch from underneath, dozens of other fantastic routines that don’t require tremendous practice.

237 pages
45 tricks
Gorgeous hardbound, laminate cover
In addition to all of this, Anthony has also penned an essay on magic for television, which is essential reading if you wish to work in this field. With a glowing introduction by Andy Nyman, Secrets is the mentalism release of the year, and a book we know you will return to again and again.

Is there a contents [?]

It says it has the best from the last 25 years - so [although 10+ years old] does it have his lottery effect [trick]

I guess others may have improved on it and I already have a better version [or not] but I was wondering

As the trailer only mentions oil and water...

Thanks

p.s. anyone got a review... at this stage I'll even take a Madison review xx

Looking forward to more reviews of this book!

How many of these effects can be performed close-up in a walk around gig?

Still no contents?

I was excited by the lottery effect being in this book

But I suspect that it is totally dependent on DR

And when it says the numbers are 'Printed' on the bottom of the ticket - it's not something I could perform to a small parlour show

I'm glad there was no list of contents listed - as I was about to hit the buy button... but I now suspect the effect I was most excited about has DR that I can't live with

It's just not the sort of effect I want to do

Would love for someone in the know to say - it is not the case

I do love PW or NW but not if the end result needs DR to sell it

Thanks

Anthony Owen posted the full list of contents on his Twitter account several days ago.

You can also find more details (and order signed copies) here: http://tvmagic.co.uk/2012/?product=anthony-owens-secrets

The Duster you may be interested to know that the 12 pages devoted to Mr Owen's original lottery effect include many additional ideas which move it beyond a DR effect.

And even if you don't like that effect that are 45 other effects which you may like...

Pity you've decided to miss out on the book which many are raving about.

Some great quotes appeared on the internet today about the book from Andy Nyman, John Archer and Chris Cox. This is in addition to the ones already published from Steve Cook, Liam Montier and others.

It's not [?]

So when the performer says the number is 'printed' on the lottery ticket

That means the same thing to both the spec on stage as to the audience [?]

Why does Mr Owen very quickly put the ticket away in the video and not show it to the audience [?]

Thanks

Hi The Duster

The video is from a performance of Mr Owen's original version of the effect. This new book contains lots of additional thoughts including enabling the spectator on stage to believe that they see a printed ticket and for a real printed lottery ticket to be handed out to the audience as a souvenir.

It would be unfair to those who have invested wisely in this purchase to share more in this forum.
