Art and Magic

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

Has anyone out there read this fine tome ?
And if you had are you applying any of Sharpes thoughts to your performance style . The one big thing thats impressed me so far is trying to convey that I may actually be performing "real" magic and not a "trick". That approach has evoked reactions of wonder instead of appreciation for a display of digit manipulation.
There are many fine thoughts and principles to use in this book and reccomend it to anyone looking to enhance their performance style .

"Not everyone who has the recipe and the ingredients can turn out a palatable cake . Not everyone who has the apparatus and the instructions can create an illusion."
