Here's an excerpt from the book reviewed by Steinmeyer. This article goes into detail on the lengths to which Mendez went to sneak six Americans out of Iran subrosa. As the title of the article implies, it's "A Classic Case of Deception."


"Properly defined, the illusion never exists at all. It is only an inference, the logical (if improbable) solution the audience forms once the evidence has been stacked in a deliberate manner. The "illusion" doesn't exist, just the suggestion of it which you've diagnosed and skillfully presented."

-Jim Steinmeyer, Device and Illusion
