An excellent reference for a Teacher 12 novembre 2001
Par The Magic of Christopher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I am a professional magician. I have used this book on many occasions to teach a magic workshop. The tricks are very well explained and most are very easy to perform. Lots of pictures make this process quick. If you are a beginner in magic, a professional or even a teacher, I highly recommend making this purchase!

How to get over stage fright and still keep your integrity 19 août 2000
Par tropic_of_criticism - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is more than a simple collection of tricks. It's a full introduction to the world of magic. Not only do you discover the secrets behind tricks that you can reproduce without much special equipment, you also get a foundation in the whole art of magic.
Most of the book is, of course, consumed with telling you how to do stuff. The tricks are organized by the venue in which they could best be performed. There are tricks for the office, tricks for restaurants, tricks for parties, and tricks for wherever you carry a pack of cards. The instructions for all the tricks are clear and even humorous. Mr. Pogue is an excellent teacher, able to convey in writing what many couldn't do through speech.
But the book is more than just these tricks. It's also a guide to the performance art of magic itself. Nothing, according to Mr. Pogue, is as important as the panache you can exhibit. And of course he's right. Pogue teaches you that the projection of confidence is, more than anything you do with your hands, responsible for the creation of illusion.
He also gives you a real sense of the history and tradition of magic. There's an introduction to famous magicians and a listing of resources to help you continue your exploration of the craft. I was also impressed to discover that there's an attempt at a "trickography"-something like a bibliography attempting to credit, where possible, the inventors of the included tricks. This trickography goes into some detail about the responsibility that magicians have towards each other, even though there's nothing in the magician's trade which can be copyrighted.
All in all, it's a fine work, well worth your money. Still, it's worth mentioning that the style of trick included here isn't necessarily everyone's idea of "magic". This is simple, sleight-of-hand stuff. It's not, for the most part, stage magic. There are no rabbits drawn from hats nor beautiful assistants sawn in half, here. Of course, to many readers this will be considered a virtue: these tricks can be done anywhere with minimal investment. But if you're hoping to make a career-or at least a paying hobby--of magic, this book is probably just a baby step along the way.

An excellent book 10 juin 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Magic for Dummies is an excellent book for a beginning magician or an intermediate looking for new tricks. There are 100 tricks in this book that will leave your audience floored. It also provides great photos and patter and the format is very easy to read. And it is written in a lighthearted sense and is very funny. It also gives you a glossary of terms, things to say when someone asks you "How did you do that?", places to learn about magic, buy magic stuff, etc.
Bend a regular spoon, make a saltshaker disappear, do a reflex test on a volunteer and always win, keep track of money even when your back is turned, or locate your volunteer's card without even looking at it. Whatever you want to do, pick up Magic for Dummies!

The Secrets Behind Every Magic Effect Ever Made... 30 octobre 2004
Par Felice - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Read the title again. Yes, that's right... Magic for Dummies, a book targeted towards interested laymen, holds the greatest secret behind all magic, whether or not you're Lance Burton or David Copperfield up on a stage or a teenage magician strolling the streets.

The secret behind all magic: showsmanship, patter, personality, and intrigue. The effects in this book, simple as they are, are the building blocks of all magic. Beginners will learn the integrity behind the magic, the showsmanship necessary to perform, and some great but simple effects. Intermediates will find the importance of showsmanship and patter... reemphasized tenfold - and, maybe, some new effects will be learnt. Advanced magicians? I can not speak for them... but sometimes, a magician needs to take himself down a few notches in practicing advanced, knuckle-breaking sleights and, instead, concentrate on the magic behind the magic - the presentation.

Behind Magic for Dummies exists a magic for professionals. There's a brief history of magic, a compilation of great magicians in history, a list of things to say when you make a mistake, and hilarious magic cartoons. For those who don't know much behind magic, this book holds everything from the old static pencil on hand to a simplified restaurant zombie effect.

I recommend Magic for Dummies for young and old alike, whether you be layman or magician... it will make a magician out of a layman and a wizard out of a magician.

I'll leave it at that.

it made my 12 year old happy! 15 août 1999
Par siralewker@aol.com - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I am not allowed to read this book. My daughter sleeps with it under her pillow and will not tell anyone, I mean anyone, how a trick is done. she has developed skill, confidence & a David Pogue-ish sense of humor. I have read most of Mr. Pogue's other books from MAC FOR DUMMIES to OPERA FOR DUMMIES. I can only say that anyone who gives this book less than 5 stars, must either a)have no sense of humor or b) a pc use with an axe to grind! Any book by David Pogue is a sure best seller. I sell books, I know!!! :-)
