If becoming a close-up magician was as easy as following the rules laid down by the industry over the last few decades, then why aren’t all magicians created equal?

Herein, lies 5 rules I believe every close-up magician should break. An anarchic approach for those looking to ignore the rules laid down by the industry they call home.

Winners bend the rules; their willingness to diversify their approach makes them stand out from the crowd.

Break away from the herd and dip your toe into the taboo. Not everyone will like this advice. But let’s be honest, not everyone deserves to read it either.

A lot of young magicians and newcomers to the industry rely on me to give them the honesty that others deny them. Through fear of competition, or a mis-guided desire to protect them from making mistakes.

Their answers are often cryptic and leave those fresh performers in limbo.

Where do you go next?

Turn off your controversy alarms. They’ll be going crazy, and I don’t want the noise to distract you from this…

Those that need this the most probably wont read it, or having read it, will advise others not to read it. Which is a shame.

Now where can I buy one of those Voodoo dolls.
"Deceptions From A Daypack" by Jack Goldstein - a limited edition book of card routines for those who love magic, travel and life.

Buy it now on Lulu; 100% of the profits go to Toybox, a charity committed to ending the global injustice of children living and working on the streets.

Sage advice for entertainers, but I can't help asking, 'Where's the magic?"
