Geoffrey Durham's Professional Secrets

Postby Mitch Dutton » January 22nd, 2008, 8:59 pm

Having just received my copy of Geoffrey Durham's new book, I must say that it is already one of my top ten favorites! The tricks and routines are wonderful, but the real gold is in the thinking behind the performances. BUY THIS BOOK and read it with an open mind. You will be a more entertaining performer if you apply what Mr. Durham has learned and so clearly and freely passes along to you here. Gotta go - must keep reading - just wanted to urge you to get the book from CW/Viking, the U.S. distributor.

I can't recommend this book highly enough. Along with masterful tips for developing a successful magic act it has Geoffrey's imaginative reworkings of a large number of effects. he carefully re-thinks every effect he adds to his repertoire, and you can read the results in this great book.

Those who have been kind enough to buy my book (and particularly those who have been kind enough to read it) may be interested to know that I now have a small number of gold Himber wedding rings for sale.

Following publication, I received some enquiries from readers who were interested in my unique design for the ring. It has a secure locking mechanism, is almost impossible to open by pulling on a chain of three, and enables a sure-fire one-handed unlink. So I asked the propmaker and jeweller who made my original to make some one-offs for those people, and I ordered a few extra at the same time. I have three left.

If you would like photos, details of price etc, please email me at

It's a gem that's for sure. Geoffrey really is a master thinker. It amazes me that you guys in the USA have missed him for so lng but I guess that is because he has been keeping his head down and working for the lay public over here for so long. If you ever get chance to see him grab it. The Himber ring is as good as it sounds, get the book and you'll understand.
