Re: Speaking Freely by Eric jones

I greatly appreciates the speaking freely column by Eric Jones. First the laws should be applied strictly in our community too. Not a hard thing to do after all ! And like every human issue, everyone has to be very careful all the time around him so racism in all forms doesn’t occur and if it does, ...

Re: FS- Hugards Monthly, complete set of originals

Re: Willmarth

Hello, Yes Richard, It was The Impostress Pincess book. Thanks for your answers. A friend of Robbie Willmarth's daughter contacted me yesterday, and the problem was solved in a couple of hours. Although in bad times for this family, they were very kind to make all the possible to send me the book. I...

Re: Book writing methodology

In French, we say "décrire, c'est déjà interpréter" : describe is already an interpretative effort. So i don't really agree with you Richard on the simple point "I just do it". At each times, it's a great result : according to my humble view, it's always a fascinating journey. I ...

Re: The Berglas Effects - Deluxe Edition

Next year (i have a very precise plan of work), i will take the time necessary to study thoroughly this book and - I hope - manage to bring to life many of the great ideas exposed.

And yes Richard, I agree with you concerning the sponge balls...

Sorry for my bad English, i'm a french guy!

Book writing methodology

Hello Mr Kaufman, Since you are very few great writers of magic books, i would like to know if you have discussed in the past the subject of methods in writing a book : how are you working ? I think all of us know the different steps : collect the material, drawing, organizing...but what is the prin...

Re: The Berglas Effects - Deluxe Edition

I don't understand why Mr Berglas was so insistent to include his chapter on the roulette system. Extraordinary theatrical skills yes, but very poorly mathematical skills...When i read the book, this chapter distracted me from the big impressive picture. The integrity of Richard Kaufman regarding qu...

Wanted John Carney Magic by Design

Hi,
I'm researching Magic by Design by John Carney. It is out of print but I've managed to find a numerical copy of it and it's a wonderful book. So i have two possibilities: find someone who is willing to sell it or send $ 30 to John Carney.
Thanks in advance
