The book describes Alex stone's life. The book is written well and even read well. However won't describe it as exceptional. A good listen nevertheless . Some of the physics/ Maths behind the so called tricks was quite enlightening. A little lengthy perhaps. A little low on EQ as admitted by author himself.
I was unsure that I would like this at all. I needn't have worried. This book keeps getting better. A mix of biography and magic facts with quick romps through science all of which is as informative as it is entertaining. If like me you were tempted but not sure- jump in and give it a listen.

Read by the author, so it gets good marks right from the start. In spite of the long title, this book is mostly about one man's interest and experiences with magic. As a budding magician I found it very interesting, and was able to understand most of what he was referring to, but I do not think that those who are not not familiar with the tricks or terms would appreciate it as much.

This was a fascinating book! I don't even know where I got the recommendation from but I'm very glad that I did . There's no way I could've predicted even 80% of this book even though I'm interested in magic and illusions generally. I highly recommend it to anyone really.
If you're looking to understand how the mind works through magicians, mentalists etc. as I was, then this book barely gives a glimpse of that and you'll be disappointed.
I want my money back. The subtitle of the book and the description on Audible are misleading.
If however you're a big magic fan and want to know about that "world" and want to listen to one persons story about their life in that "world", then this could be for you.
