Greetings to all,

TSAOM has been long out of print and when it rarely appears in the resale market, it commands big prices. Now you can have it on your computer tonight. It's available from Penguin Magic now as a download.

For the purposes of this post however, I wish to direct you to a review of the book by a Mr. Jamy Ian Swiss. It's a nice tour de force of his knowledge of magic and specifically the history of street magic. And while It's a mixed review, it's measured overall and very informative. I invite you all to read it:

It looks like a MASSIVELY useful book, well worth the $45.00... that I don't currently have!

One of my favorite books, was happy to find a copy, and glad others will have a chance to read it. Eric, I've heard you're working on a new book. Are there any updates on that? Thanks for sharing...

Senno52, thanks for your kind words. It's always extremely gratifying when I hear that others have found some value in my work. I get a charge thinking that I might really be helping move magic forward by incorporating wisdom from other related fields.

As to my new book, I'm organizing my writings and will continue to do so over the winter months I'm sure. Most of the writing is done but because of my style of writing, I must now spend a good deal of time providing the "Armature" around which all of it will be organized. That process is the same approach that I had with my first book, incorporating ideas from Sun Tzu. I'm not sure that it's the best approach, but it sort of works for me and I think imparts a good deal more power to the various concepts as a result.

Hopefully by spring of next year I'll have another offering for intellectual consumption Smile Smile

Again, thank you for your comments and inquiry.

I bought this book when it was first published, and I often find myself revisiting it.

The DVD you produced a few years later is also quite good!

Does the digital version have a search feature?

Hi NEKKODDD,

My friend who had the pdf made has informed me that it is 90% searchable. The character recognition program isn’t perfect but it’s close.

Also, there’s an extensive index in the back of the book that I’ve found to be very useful.
