Re: Neil Lester

In addition to being a master craftsman, Neil was also a psychologist. He wrote a slim volume on child psychology that had some simple techniques that helped me be a more effective parent. I thanked him years ago and remain grateful.

He will be missed and my sympathies go out to his family.

The last few times we've been in Paris lack of time has prevented me from visiting the Paris magic shop(s). I'd appreciate any suggestions from folks who've visited there recently. Would also be very interested in magic bars, etc.
