I'm unfamiliar with those 2. I'll search for them.

This is a really good book. This is the correct spelling Gay's last neme: Audience Management by Gay Ljungberg

Thanks Motown for correcting Gay’s name, I wrote the message very fast without checking. A very good little book every magician should read carefully. Only the magic as a game part sounded strange to me. Everything else is top notch.

Performing magic is a book the theatrical aspects of Magic. I really don’t understand the bad critics about this book. I learnt a lot of things. And it is a workbook : take notes and apply the exercices and advices bit by bit.

I can assure you that the era of big magic books is not over. At least not until I'm dead. Smile
My latest, Mr. Jennings Takes it Easy, is almost 600 pages.

Keep the good work alive thanks Richard ! I love big magic books so much. Especially if you have a biography, some historical background, lengthy footnotes…

As one that sells new and used magic books, I can say, “The era of physical books is not dead”

Harpacrown Too is 448 pages and is certainly influenced by Richard’s work which I consider the gold standard and the reason I chose to include line drawn illustrations instead of photos. I would not be so arrogant as to compare my work to Richard’s but I will say that my work was elevated due to Richard’s influence.
