Secrets Revealed: 2

Posted on Jan 07, 2017 by Joey

I tend to keep to myself. In not sure if that’s the way I’ve always been, or just these last five or so years. In fact, I’ve recently been called, ‘secretive.’ Well, I AM a magician, but this person, was referring to the rest of my life. So, here I am, writing this. I’ve decided to make these missives regular, and since I’m not sure that anyone is actually reading them, I’m going to set down one ground rule, and If I ever break it, I’m hopeful one of you will tell me.

Here it is:

I’m going to keep you in mind when I write these.

In other words, what I want to be reading will not be the deciding factor in what I write. My hope is that what I pen (or type) will be useful to you, perhaps interesting, maybe even provocative. Okay, then, see you next time!

Secrets Revealed!

“I’m often asked, “How did you do that?” I have an answer to that question that begins with me explaining that I actually have two answers: a short answer and a long answer. I usually ask which the questioner would like to get. In both cases I decline to actually explain how I did it, but both the long and short answers are interesting and do go a long way to explain “how I did it.” This book that I’m going to recommend now is part of the long answer. Written by magician, inventor, and long time magic insider, Jim Steinmeyer, “The Glorious Deception,” is a fabulously entertaining read, and also provides many of the answers to many of the most intimate questions on how we magicians do what we do. Following is a little about the book, above is a photo of the subject of the book, and click here help you make a purchase.
