Re: Josh Jay

I asked a question. All I wanted was for him to give me a direct answer.

Sorry if that upset you-- I certainly didn't intend to do that.

Well, I honestly don't know if what you did was honest or dishonest. But I do know you never answered my question directly.

Re: Josh Jay

You're assuming they actually read the book before giving the quotes. You're assuming they read more than one chapter of the book. You're assuming they didn't just give the quotes because they're friends and the author asked. And if you assume those things, then you don't know anything about the pu...

Re: Josh Jay

Well THESE guys thought it was a good book: "The book is readable, it's extremely clear, it's clear, it's thrilling in its intellectual adventure. And it's also, clearly, enormously practical. It makes you think. It enriches you as an artist (and therefore as a human being.)" - Juan Tamari...

Re: Josh Jay

I'm not saying he's honest OR dishonest... I'll wait until he responds.

I'm waiting for his response. He's a grownup-- let him speak/write for himself...

Re: Josh Jay

I understand that's pretty much how Congress works as well. Yes, but how many people appreciate the way Congress works? My point here is that just because other people/organizations do something a certain way does not mean that way is honest or moral. Accepted behaviour doesn't mean it's moral beha...

Re: Josh Jay

What I would recommend is avoiding tripe like Strong Magic and watching good magicians perform, either live or recorded. Then performing yourself and developing a personal style. It's not that difficult, it's not brain surgery, and you don't have to read crap about Alfred Hitchcock movies to do it....

If I recall correctly, he was also a student of Paul Chosse and Ron Bauer, right?
