After more than a decade, Michael Close has finally released his long-awaited ebooks, The Paradigm Shift Volumes One and Two. They are available now at an introductory price.

The two volumes contain over sixty chapters, more than 140,000 words, and feature groundbreaking essays that will change the way you think about your magic, beautiful sleights that will deceive both laymen and magicians, and commercial, devious routines you will enjoy performing. Included are ideas and routines from Ariel Frailich, John Carney, Simon Aronson, Bob Farmer, Michael Weber, Mick Ayres, Roy Walton, Harry Riser, Norman Beck, Jason England, Aaron Fisher, Joshua Jay, and Ton Onosaka. As with our previous ebooks, we have used text, photos, and video to provide an optimal learning experience.

Thanks,

Michael Close

Mike,

Great book. I am enjoying it very much so far...

A weird coincidence. In the book, you talk about Daniel Kahneman's Thinking Fast and Slow. I had never heard of the book before. The next day, I was in a one-day class for work on "Traditional Biases". The book that the teacher highly recommended was Kahneman's book. What are the odds?

Something like that really wakes up System 2, doesn't it?

I'm glad you're enjoying the book. Please feel free to post a review on the website.

I had a look via the link provided to find out more however there wasn't really anymore information given, is there going to be a table of contents updated to the site to see what is in the books before making a decision ?

Great explanations and clarity brought to these ideas early on: "Repose, Chaos, and Action"
I appreciate the open view of the mindset that has a consistent appearance throughout all your work, made brilliantly clear here.

Just bought these after seeing Michael lecture at Conjurer Community. He has so much salt of the earth advice on mem decks I couldn't miss these.
