A note from Joshua Jay: What if I told you that today we are releasing a book with contributions from Derren Brown, Teller, and Juan Tamariz? How about if the book also included contributions from John Carney, Darwin Ortiz, Tommy Wonder, Pit Hartling, Rene Lavand, Tom Stone, and nearly thirty other magic luminaries?

And what if I told you that this collection was entirely free?

I have spent the last three years working on Magic in Mind, which is my gift to all magicians, young and old, who care deeply about magic. I set out to assemble some of the most important, influential, and helpful essays on magic ever written, and make them available to all serious students of magic for free. Coming in at over 500 pages, Magic in Mind is finally ready.

I am overwhelmed by the generosity of nearly thirty of my heroes, who kindly consented for me to publish or republish their words. Some essays the serious student will be familiar with, from Houdin to Fitzkee to Maven. Others are more arcane, but no less important. For example, I was able to get permission from the Tommy Wonder estate, and to have Juan Tamariz’s blessing to publish his essay on “illusionism” for the first time in English. I feel very lucky to have worked on this project, and I hope that magicians who read Magic in Mind will find the material as inspiring as I do.

It's awesome!

 

Irving Quant

I see this as one of those books that will echo for generations to come, guiding everyone towards a stronger understanding and practice of Magic. A phenomenal work everyone should read no matter the level of skill. A true step forward in our Art!

 

Steven Leung

Over the years quite a few online magic companies with slogan to change the magic community but in reality what they are doing merely is not. All we have in the last decade were hundreds of custom printed decks, thousands of DVDs which most of them never remember what effect taught inside and tens of thousands instant downloads where many of us even do not want to know what it is about.

Magic in mind is just like a life ring in the ocean of magic junk. Enough said.

I wished that this book is available when I started more than a decade ago so that I would not spent time that I do not need to in searching what to learn and how to study magic.

A must read for everyone, another winner from Vanishing Magic Inc.

 

Jordi Narpati

This is an excellent E-book Not because it is free but The value of the book itself is overwhelming
Every starting magician should read this e-book also Strong Magic also a great accompany for this e-book since its all theoretical and very useful to professionals or beginners that are very in to magic not only as a hobby.
Vanishing inc is definitely the website for magicians.
Cheers, -Jordi Narpati-

Navigating one's way through the formidable back catalogue of writings on magic can be pretty daunting - so if someone would only put together a selective reader… and now they have! 'Magic in Mind' is a real boon, an absolute gem, and a remarkably generous endeavour - priceless, in many ways.
As a newcomer to magic this has proven indispensable and inspiring, and although 500+ pages from over 30 authors may seem daunting it actually makes for a very flowing read, as well as supplying an indispensable bibliography for those next reading steps…

You have no excuse! This is an amazing resource. It will make you think and even question the hows and whys to your approach and performance. Oh, and it's free so get it. You won't regret it.
