I am reading, MYSTERIOUS STRANGER - A Book Of Magic by David Blaine (I am about 3/4 through it). It IS NOT a "How To" book, but rather a "Life's Account" type of book. He talks about his childhood, how he got into magic, his goals, his tv speacials, other magicians, magic as a whole, and a lot more.

Blaine really gives an inside look on his own life, valuse and beliefs. His views on magic and how it should be performed is very interesting to me, and how he goes about to accomplish his goals seem like they come from a man who is determined to take his art to the people, where it belongs.

I find this book a very good read, and yes I realize it is just one ,man's account of his own life discovering amnd realizing his own dreams. But there it is...He is living his own dreams and goals, and he shares them with all he comes across.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a good read! I believe it was published in 2002 (I could be wrong on the date).

I enjoyed this book. Talked a lot about the history of magic.
