The Complete Idiots Guide to Street Magic
by Tom Ogden
Its the hip-hop of hocus-pocus.
Forget about David Copperfield, cruise ship illusionists, and birthday party magicians. Theyre so twentieth century. Think cutting-edge magickers like David Blaine and Criss Angel. People starting out in magic today want something edgier, grittier, quick, visual, and maybe a little dangerous. This guide will teach you how to do it!
What makes The Complete Idiots Guide to Street Magic different from other books is the type of tricks and the thematic presentations that readers will actually learn. Out of the literally thousands of tricks that could have been included, only those that have the greatest impact, both visually and psychologically, appear in this book.
